A winter wonderland: Christmas in the Escrick Park Hollicarrs

By Helen Pentith  //  Thu 17th December 2015
Do you ever dream of just getting away from it all at Christmas? Do you long to forget the pressures of hosting wave after wave of extended family? Do you ache to tell the turkey to go stuff itself and the stockings to go hang? If so, you aren’t the only one. Many of us dream of cosy cottages away from the everyday come Christmastime, of heading into the countryside, the woods or the mountains for an idyllic rural Christmas with our nearest and dearest. You needn’t just dream, however – our Hollicarrs timber lodge holiday homes give you the chance to live your festive fantasies each and every year.

A cosy home away from home

The Hollicarrs are a cosy home away from home in the stunning Yorkshire countryside. Built to a very high standard, our lodges complement the natural landscape and sit unobtrusively in the gentle meadows and ancient woodland of the Escrick Park Estate. Inside, you’ll find a luxurious modern living space where you can feel at one with nature while keeping the elements where they belong. You can tailor the interior of your lodge to suit your own tastes and expectations – whether you want a traditional rural aesthetic or a more contemporary, luxury feel. Imagine cosying up around a roaring stove as you play family board games and keep an ear out for Santa’s approach above the treetops – that’s the reality of Christmas in our lodges.

A natural winter wonderland

Even the cosiest lodge won’t keep you indoors all winter long. Lodge owners can awake from their hibernation to explore the beautiful countryside of rural Yorkshire. Green and verdant in the summer, Escrick takes on an entirely different character in the winter time. Frost turns the trees and plants into shimmering works of art reflecting the bright winter sunlight, and if you’re lucky enough to experience a white Christmas you’ll see the woods and meadows dusted as if with confectioner’s sugar. Christmas is in the air at Escrick Park – a rural winter wonderland perfect for country strolls, snowball fights and countless additions to the family photo album.

Christmas activities at Escrick Park

Hollicarr owners can step back in time to enjoy a traditional Christmas the way it’s supposed to be celebrated. The old Christmas traditions are still strong here at Escrick Park, with carol singing and the trimming of the tree an event we look forward to all year round. Enjoy a mug or two of steaming mulled wine as the frost glints on the windowpanes, or explore the grounds on Christmas morning while the visiting grandchildren play with their new presents. Escrick’s favourite activities are available all year round, so coarse fishermen can fish our lake in the stillness of a rural winter’s day.

Forget the pressures of Christmas and enjoy the festive season here at Escrick Park. Invest in a rural holiday home and return to a wintry paradise every ear – contact us today to enquire about our lodge availability.
