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

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 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.

We are delighted to have recently invested in a lovely holiday lodge for rental purposes within the beautiful natural space at Hollicarrs holiday park.
Our journey throughout has been straight forward and smooth. This positive new experience has been enhanced by the friendly sales representative,
Shane Thomson. We have appreciated his calm professional approach and  guidance in making our purchase. We look forward to working alongside the management team at Hollicarrs who are friendly, efficient and very approachable.

Would like to thank Shane for the service he provided in the purchase of our beautiful holiday home. From start to finish he offered superb advice and service. The park is in beautiful woodlands and very tranquil. I would recommend this holiday park very strongly, and know you would get great service off Shane, I would also like to thank all the staff at Hollicarrs for making us feel very welcome. Two very happy customers

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.

We recently purchased a lodge at Hollicarrs. After considering several options during lockdown, we decided to go ahead. Shane guided us through the whole process, we visited several times before finally making the commitment. Nothing was too much trouble and he made the purchase procedure clear & straightforward. He gave us all the information we needed in a well organised & timely manner. It was clear that he follows up his sales as he knows many of the residents by name. We are delighted with our home from home lodge.

I purchased a brand new lodge on Escrick Park a couple of months back and can honestly say that the end-to-end process was seamless and enjoyable throughout.

I had been looking at other parks in the York area and Escrick was by far the most appealing, being set in a very peaceful and immaculately maintained woodland area with great access to York, Selby and the surrounding countryside.

The entire team have been very supportive and helpful. Shane particularly is not your typical salesperson, he has been great to deal with, but more notably has not washed his hands after the sale and has been pro-active in making sure everything was OK post sale.

I would highly recommend the park at Escrick and, after intensive research, I am 100% happy with my decision to purchase a lodge here.

Thanks to everyone involved in making this go so smoothly.

"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!"
