Have you ever considered buying a holiday home for you and your family? Is it on your bucket list and you’re hoping to make it a reality soon?

If the answer to either of these questions is ‘yes’, you could still be facing a big decision: “Where should I buy a holiday home?”

With the world on your doorstep, it can be hard to know where to begin. However, we’re here to help – and naturally, we’re making the case for Yorkshire! We think it has everything you could need to make your investment in a luxury holiday lodge the best decision you ever made.

So here are our top 10 reasons to buy a luxury holiday lodge in North Yorkshire.



There is a wealth of holiday homes in Yorkshire – and at YHL Parks, you’ll find options to suite almost everyone. Here at Abbots Green, we have luxury holiday lodges, including pet-friendly homes, and across our sister parks there are lodges and homes of all shapes and sizes. We even have options for you to try before you buy, or bring a touring caravan or tent to some of the sites to give you a flavour of life on our parks.



There’s nowhere like Yorkshire when it comes to variety. From bustling cities to peaceful meadows, as well as historic landmarks and beautiful coastline, we really do have it all. On top of that, there’s plenty of wildlife around if you enjoy seeing native plants and birds from your own window, or out and about.



All of our parks have absolutely stunning surroundings. We’re lucky to have a beautiful lake here at Abbots Green, while Swaleside has river fishing, and each park looks onto countryside, woodland, pretty villages and much more. If you want to get away from it all, there’s no better place than Yorkshire.



If getting out and about is more your thing, you’ll be spoilt for choice in God’s Own County. From historic castles and abbeys to theme parks and animal attractions, there is more than enough to keep you occupied all year round – and that’s before we mention fishing, walking, cycling and more!



It may be a large and rural region, but the transport connections to Yorkshire are really convenient.  Our parks are all within easy distance of motorways taking you anywhere in the UK, as well as mainline train stations with links to major cities. Not only that, but with four major airports in the region, you can easily make Yorkshire your home for half the year – and spend the rest sunning yourself on the continent. Not a bad way to live!



From village fetes to international sporting events, Yorkshire has a proud history when it comes to putting on a show. Many of the towns and villages close to our parks have annual events, while larger celebrations of all kinds take place most weekends in York, Harrogate and further afield. The annual Tour de Yorkshire is fast becoming a favourite attraction in the spring, and it doesn’t stop when the weather turns colder: Christmas markets and fairs spring up throughout the winter months.



Our holiday homes and lodges certainly offer an affordable option if you’re looking for a holiday home in Yorkshire. We have options available to suit different budgets and meet all your needs. Once you’re enjoying your holiday home, you’ll find life is affordable in Yorkshire too: the cost of living is lower than many other areas. For example, the Good Pub Guide found the average cost of a pint in Yorkshire was £3.15, compared to £3.92 in London. What a bargain!



Once you’ve invested in your own holiday home, you’ll find the savings quickly stack up. You’ll no longer need to spend hundreds of pounds on a holiday home just for a week – and you’ll save all that time spent searching for the perfect place, too. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting when you set off to your Yorkshire holiday home – peace, tranquillity, beautiful surroundings and a friendly community. You will probably find you manage to get away from it all a lot more often than you did before!


For all the family

Our holiday parks are ideal for family life, including children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins… the whole family can benefit from your holiday home! As well as great accommodation, you’ll find great indoor and outdoor playgrounds, games rooms, coffee shops and much more on our parks – along with events for owners and their families throughout the year.


Home from home

The best thing about owning a luxury holiday lodge in Yorkshire is making it yours: no more filling your car up with half of your worldly goods and enduring an uncomfortable journey to a holiday home you’ve never seen before and can’t be sure you’ll like. With your own holiday home, you can fill it with your own clothes, books, board games, pictures, DVDs, CDs, pots, pans, crockery, bubble bath, towels, dressing gown… just about everything to make it feel like home the moment you walk through the door.
