" After viewing lots of sites locally, Hollicarrs was just such a beautiful/tranquil place to choose for our lodge to be sited. The staff are very friendly and helpful with the whole process from choosing which plot, to which lodge and then to prestige to look and choose everything you would like from the external look to all the internal features with a vast choice of fabrics/floorings/furniture and fittings, just brilliant.

Then to see everything come to life as your lodge makes its way onto site, this is when all those choices you've made become reality. we couldn't believe they can produce such a beautiful lodge in such a short time, what a team. We can not thank them enough and would recommend to anyone of thinking of taking the plunge, Coastline leisure, prestige and Hollicarrs are a winning combination. "

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 Oxley

Our journey started mid 2016 when we were tempted to buy a lodge at Hollicarrs, having visited playing pétanque and know a number of owners there. This is when we first met Shane and Steve, he was very friendly and helpful. Ongoing we then decided to put buying a lodge on hold but Shane was very understanding. 

So fast forward to January 2017 when we saw lodges on the website, in the meantime we had visited Hollicarrs a few times to visit friends who where all so positive about the place. All of their comments emphasised what we had already seen, peaceful environment, lovely scenery lots of nice people and lots of activity. Thus we re-encountered Shane and Steve. Again Shane in particular was very helpful showing us various lodges available. 

We where unsure and so whilst on holiday in Tenerife we messaged Shane for more information, sizes, costs, sheds, decking extensions, nothing was too much trouble for Shane. On return we soon placed a deposit on a maple lodge - already on site and show lodge. We wanted to change a few things, furniture, carpet not suitable, light fittings etc. Not a problem for Shane and Steve. 

Soon after was when we then met Dawn and Lisa in reception and later the ground staff and wardens. Everyone of the staff were so very helpful and made settling in so straight forward. Throughout the journey we have received detailed information concerning the purchase of a holiday Lodge and the benefits of Hollicarrs. Everything we have been told has been spot on. 

Our lasting memory is of Shane arriving at our lodge armed with a bouquet of flowers and a bottle of bubbly.

Thanks to all the team, and our friends old and new at Hollicarrs

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!"

Mr and Mrs Shackelton
"We fell in love with Hollicarrs the day we went to find a Holiday Home. How can anyone not like it. The setting is beautiful, especially now as Spring bursts into life. Everything is really well kept. We have wandered around the woods and the fishing pond, the walks around the Park are lovely. We love exploring and have found some wonderful old trees, insect hives and a bird wathcing area. When we get the chance to be outside, we often here the Woodpecker, see the many species of birds and plantlife. On arriving at the Park, we always feel like this is home.
In our opinion, there is nowhere more beautiful to own a Holiday Home.
Shane, the sales representative, was very helpful and informative. Taking us all around the Park, showing us all the Lodges that could be available in the future. Therefore helping us to make the right decision. He is a very personable young man and nothing is too much trouble for him.
We also find that Dawn and Lisa in the office are very friendly and helpful, keeping us Holiday Home Owners on our toes (in the nicest possible way). All the ground staff are friendly and always wave or stop to chat.
We find the Lodges comfortable, warm and the perfect, peaceful setting for a Holiday Home.
