Location: York,North Yorkshire

Park description:

At Park Leisure we offer our customers the opportunity to buy into a lifestyle that allows them to maximise their leisure time. Our range of holiday home parks across the UK exist to provide luxury holiday retreats for people who want more from life and our rental properties in the UK and in Spain mean we are able to provide something for everyone.

We specialise in high quality 4 and 5 star static caravan holiday parks in prime destinations around the country including the Yorkshire Dales, the Weardale Valley, Northumberland, the Ribble Valley and the Cornish coast. What makes us different to other holiday parks is our policy of private ownership which we insist on to maintain the high quality of our parks and enhance the experience of our customers.

The holiday homes on the majority of our parks are 100% privately owned with the exception of a small number of rental caravans at Par Sands in Cornwall. These rentals are strictly managed by ourselves to maintain the highest standards.

Because of this 'owners only' approach, our parks attract the discerning holiday maker who doesn't wish to be met by different faces every time they stay. They like that they get to know the other owners and enjoy the peace of mind that quality will always be maintained because of like minded people taking pride in their own holiday homes and surroundings just as they do.

Eager to create a better work life balance, escape the rat race or just spend more quality time with the family? However you choose to use your holiday home; whether it be a weekend getaway or for your annual break, you can be sure that owning a Park Leisure holiday home will enhance your lifestyle for many years!

For those seeking a high standard of holiday accommodation without the commitment of owning a holiday home, our rental properties in Cornwall and exciting golf resort in Murcia in Spain provide the same quality, backed by the Park Leisure name and reputation.
