Testimonials
Hollicarrs a breathtaking environment, don't just take our word for it.
Hollicarrs Owner

Whilst on holiday in the north of England in September 2017, we visited a number of holiday parks with a view to choosing a location on which to have a holiday lodge when we retired.

Of all the sites we visited, Hollicarrs impressed us the most, and being close to York, we felt it was an ideal location for us, close to all the amenities but still in a beautiful setting. We also thought it would be a great place to take our children and grandchildren for a holiday. We felt at that point it was too soon for us to commit to a lodge, as retirement was still at least a year away, and living north of Inverness, it was too far away to use for weekends. However, at the end of last year we decided we did not want to miss out on the site we wanted, and went ahead and booked. We were originally due to visit the factory in Kettering in March, however the “Beast from the East” made it impossible to leave Scotland so we had to postpone until April.

The visit to the factory was a great experience, which we would highly recommend. Being able to choose the size of our lodge, and to incorporate a third bedroom, was a huge bonus for us. We had not seen the Buckland lodge, which we chose, except on paper plans, and had decided that we did not like the layout of the kitchen, so had the plans changed to incorporate a kitchen from one of the other lodges. However, when we got to the factory, we were immediately taken to see a Buckland Lodge on the site, and as soon as we entered we decided that the kitchen was perfect, and we decided to keep the original.  It was also great to be able to see, not just the fabric, flooring and tile samples, but to actually see some of them in place in different lodges. There was no hard sell at the factory, we just went through all the rooms, one by one, and the outside specifications, and decided what we wanted.

After everything had been agreed, we were sent the final specifications, and after that Shane gave us regular updates, sending us photos of the lodge arriving on site, and then again sending us photos of the interior as soon as it was put together.

We finally took possession of our lodge in Sept 2018, and are absolutely delighted with it.

 A great experience from start to finish – thank you to all the team at Hollicarrs!

"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 Frary

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.

The team at hollicarrs are at hand at all time. The sales team was at hand from start to finish in purchasing our perfect lodge and nothing was too much trouble 

Mr & Mrs Elcock

" 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. "

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.
