Our history…

York House Leisure was founded 50 years ago and now runs five holiday parks and retirement villages across North Yorkshire, offering everything from a one-off family holiday to luxury park living. Gateforth Park is the sixth development for YHL Parks.

Our award-winning parks are set in beautifully-maintained open grounds and have excellent facilities, not to mention stunning views of the surrounding countryside and easy access to the coast, the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales, and towns and cities such as Harrogate and York. Our professional, friendly and caring staff are always on hand to ensure our residents have everything they need.

Our experience…

York House Leisure has a wealth of experience providing holiday homes and residential park homes. Our new and used homes offer a range of options to suit all needs and budgets, and our experience means we make the buying process as smooth as possible.

Because we are involved in the whole process of a new site, from identifying a location to building the homes, from welcoming people and showing them round the site to helping them buy a property, and from managing the park to ensuring continuous investment is made, we can ensure our high standards and attention to detail are maintained throughout. It also means we have an ongoing relationship with our residents as we maintain and manage the site.

Our reputation…

York House Leisure is well known in the industry for our high quality homes and well-maintained grounds, and we have made significant investment over recent years to ensure our parks continue to offer the very best in holiday homes and park home living.

Our parks have been awarded a range of accolades over the years, including from the English Tourist Board and the well-known environmentalist Professor David Bellamy. We actively encourage wildlife on our parks and have introduced a range of green measures.
