The Hollicarrs - Testimonials

As we have just celebrated our 12th year anniversary, we thought it would be nice to include some comments from our 'Pioneer Owners' who have been with us since the opening in March 2005. Many of these owners chose their holiday home sites when we were still developing the park and they were surrounded in mud and debris - wonderful vision indeed!

Here is what they have to say:

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!"
Owners of a PEC Timber Lodge, recently upgraded from a Balmoral Delux Holiday Home
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.

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. "
Owners of Prestige Canterbury

Mr & Mrs S Wright

Hollicarrs is a life changing experience away from our busy life's. The relaxation and wildlife is next to none. The environment is kept clean and well maintained to very high standards. 

There are pleasant walks all over Skipworth Common and a fishing pond in secluded area.Our lodge is furnished to a high standard throughout in the perfect setting.

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 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.
Owners of Advent Rosemary
Mr & Mrs W
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
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

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 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.

I originally saw a beautiful lodge on a property website and never thought that I would be lucky enough to have the chance to have a holiday lodge here too. My Mum made it happen with assistance and guidance from Shane. I am happy because  it is such a peaceful and lovely environment. I have to have a hip replacement, although I am still young-ishJ , and Hollicarrs seemed to be the perfect place to recover.  It has pathways through the woods, lots of bluebells and wildlife, a lake and a big emphasis on protecting and conserving the natural environment.

We arranged to meet Shane for the handover of the lodge and it was lovely. We were presented with a really nice bouquet of flowers and I was especially impressed with the welcome pack, which contained environmentally friendly products. Shane was professional and friendly and also very patientJ

The office on site is also very welcoming and within the office, you can also seek advice and information from there too.

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.

 

 

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!
