About the Hollicarrs

Hollicarrs set in the heart of Yorkshire. A private and secure, natural sanctuary that is lovingly developed within 25 acres of the 250 acre woodlands that make up the historic Escrick Park Estate.

All luxury lodges and holiday homes are well spaced and carefully sited to make sure all owners are able to experience the natural beauty and tranquillity of their surroundings.

Hollicarrs offers a range of Timber Lodges and Holiday Homes, with a selection of demonstration lodges, sited, fully furnished and available for viewing. Our holiday homes vary in size and price, which gives potential buyers far more choice when shopping around.

With a lot of thought put into planning and landscaping, each holiday home is privately sited with open views from every angle and plenty of natural sunlight reaching the deck.

Testimonials
Hollicarrs a breathtaking environment, don't just take our word for it.
Mr & Mrs K Rodgers, Doncaster
"For us the Hollicarrs was a deliberate lifestyle choice. The woodland setting and relaxed atmosphere offer a great escape from the rush and bustle of our busy lives. It's just a year since we first visted the Hollicarrs, so we have seen it in every season and we cannot decide which one we like the best!"

Derek and I just want to say a big thank you to all those involved in our recent upgrade from a holiday caravan to a timber lodge. 

What could of been a really stressful tense time was made so much easier by thoughtful, patient staff at Hollicarrs and Coastline Leisure. Our particular gratitude is given to Shane, who without doubt took time and care to make sure that what we were looking for was attained over and above our expectations. His polite, professional and caring manner was given to us during the whole process, from moving our old van to siting our holiday lodge with utmost care and attention.

We are now looking forward to spending time here, whenever possible, to enjoy our lodge and surroundings.

Thank you all.

 

 

Mr & Mrs Dart - Wetherby
The first time we visited Hollicarrs we were struck by the beauty and the atmosphere - it's a perfect marriage between the bustle and culture of historic York and the serenity and nature of a woodlnd setting.
The site at Hollicarrs offers a wide variety of activiities, ranging from walking or cycling along the many nature trails (ideal for studying the wildlife or simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet), to flat green bowling, boules or tennis.
We have owned a lodge here for three years now and everytime we travel down the drive the magic kicks in and we just grin from ear to ear.

An excellent service from start to finish.  Shane from Sales couldn't have been more helpful, ensuring my purchase of a lodge was as smooth as possible.  The park itself is wonderful. The office, maintenance team and all at Rideways are always efficient and pleasant to deal with.
Mr & Mrs R Blacker - Reading

This is the perfect environment for the young and mature alike. All the seasons are stunning and there is a variety of things to do.  The accessibility to the lovely city of York is flexible either by bus, cycle or car, as it is only 7 miles away.
