We were so pleased to be able to re-open our luxury lodges at Abbots Green on Wednesday, December 2nd, following a month-long lockdown, and it’s got us thinking about all the things that make the park special.

Read on to find out why we think this tranquil gated park of 36 holiday lodges near Thirsk is among the best in Yorkshire.

A peaceful haven

Abbots Green is the perfect place to get away from it all, with the wooden lodges nestled in a tranquil area set away from the neighbouring York House Holiday Park.

Each holiday lodge has a wonderful view, whether of the nearby pond and the hill behind it, or of the famous Sutton Bank.

Top-class facilities

Although our holiday lodges are separate from the adjacent York House Holiday Park, it is still part of the same site and, as such, homeowners and guests can make the most of the on-site facilities.

This includes the award-winning Old Barn Coffee Shop, which was named by Tripadvisor as a 2020 Travellers’ Choice award winner. Now that the café is open again, it is offering a Winter Menu, breakfast, afternoon tea (pre-book only) and Sunday lunches (pre-book only).

Immaculate holiday park

Our in-house team ensure that the grounds at Abbots Green and the gardens of all the lodges look their very best at all times of the year.

Wildlife in abundance

The landscaping at Abbots Green has been meticulously designed to promote biodiversity and encourage wildlife, and the site now attracts a range of wildlife to the site. This includes a pair of visiting moorhen who have been returning annually for eight years, accompanied each time by a new brood.

Easy access to best North Yorkshire destinations

Abbots Green has great transport links to the best destinations in North Yorkshire. With an hour’s drive of our holiday park, our guests can reach the stunning scenery of the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales, the rugged coastline around Whitby, and must-visit towns and cities such as York, Harrogate and Knaresborough.

Closer to home, our luxury lodges are just four miles from the charming market town of Thirsk, and within sight of the famous White Horse at Kilburn.

Our site remains a safe environment, with all the social distancing and hygiene measures that we introduced after the first lockdown still in place. We continue to keep pace with any changes regarding Government guidelines and restrictions. We are in regular contact with our holiday home owners about the latest regulations including visiting during the Christmas window between December 23rd and 27th.
