About Westergate House
Home from Home
Situated in an acre of mature gardens a mile north of Escrick, Westergate House combines proximity to York with a private country setting and to us is an ideal place to work and live. Since 2017 we have gradually refurbished the accommodation offered in order to fulfill modern guest requirements and ever changing industry standards.
Our aim with backgrounds in hospitality and engineering is to offer friendly and personal service with home cooking and well appointed facilities. Whether your visit is business or pleasure, looking for accommodation, afternoon tea or family gathering we endeavour to fulfil your expectations.
In his limited spare time Paul enjoys his garage projects and landrover competitions whilst Hilary spends time in the garden or teaches cookery as well as spending time with the resident cocker spaniels Bonnie and Klyde
We hope to welcome you soon.
Paul and Hilary Finney
History of Westergate House
Westergate House built in 1939 by a local landowner, was named Fleurs, after the Battle of Flers–Courcelette where a family member was lost in action. Since then it changed to Grimston House, as a respite home for disabled children then Rutland House as Escrick doctors’ surgery. In the 1980’s it reverted to Grimston House as a bed and breakfast and in 2020 when substantially refurbished it was relaunched as Westergate House after the field on which it was built.
