Old Hall Holiday Park
Perfect holiday homes near Boroughbridge are on offer at the beautiful Old Hall Holiday Park, just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre. In the village of Langthorpe, adjacent to Boroughbridge, Old Hall Holiday Park is beautifully maintained and looks particularly stunning on a summer’s day. As well as the private plots for each owner, there’s a fantastic games room featuring pool and snooker tables, a selection of books to borrow, tea and coffee making facilities, and free WiFi.
The park is on a former Saxon farmstead, mentioned in the Domesday book, and there is plenty more history to explore in the surrounding area. From here, you can also walk into town in just five minutes to enjoy the independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants – or stay put and explore the wildlife at our David Bellamy Gold Award-winning park.
Public transport will take you to York, Ripon, Harrogate or further afield, while the A1(M) is just a few minutes’ drive away, giving easy access to the wider Yorkshire region and the rest of the UK. As well as static homes on nine- and eleven-month licences, there are 18 touring pitches including some which are let on a seasonal or part-seasonal basis.
Swaleside Holiday Park
With the advantage of the River Swale running through, Swaleside Holiday Park near Thirsk is extremely popular with fishing enthusiasts. All our residents are welcome to fish here throughout their 11-month licence, and we always celebrate a good catch! Set in the village of Topcliffe, the park is an easy walk from two pubs, a small shop and an active village hall. The village is just off the A168 which takes you into Thirsk in just a few minutes, and a short drive from the A1(M) for access further afield.
On site, there’s a great space for events – residents are welcome to join the weekly craft group, or have fun at the parties organised in the summer, at Halloween, and at other times of the year. When demand is high, we often move up to the function room at the village hall to accommodate even more guests!
The park also includes a woodland dog walk area – and the Woodlands development of just 18 secluded plots is surrounded by trees, too.
Quarry Moor and New Park
Quarry Moor and New Park sit side-by-side on the outskirts of a historic city with outstanding transport links. Perfect for over 50s, these residential parks in Ripon offer a peaceful home within easy reach of local amenities and attractions.
Developed over many years, the parks are filled with greenery and full of wildlife throughout the year. Each plot is set back from the main driveway, giving a feeling of space and privacy. Owners can enjoy a peaceful and relaxing way of life, benefiting from their own space to call home – yet within a small and friendly community.
The parks boast the advantage of having a regular, reliable bus service into Harrogate and Ripon stopping at the end of the drive, up to every 15 minutes, seven days a week. From here, you can explore the history of one of the UK’s smallest cities, once home to Lewis Carrol.
The weekly market in the city centre is a great attraction for locals. Make sure you visit the stunning Ripon Cathedral and the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Gardens on the outskirts of the city.
Quarry Moor and New Park are within easy travelling distance of the spa town of Harrogate, the historic city of York, and even the North Yorkshire coast for day trips. With so much to explore, you will never be short of things to do – and always with a warm, welcoming home to welcome you back.
