We are proud to announce the acquisition of our latest park, Rawcliffe Hall Country Club and Caravan Park in Lancashire.
Situated close to the picturesque village of ‘Out Rawcliffe’ on the north bank of the River Wyre, and only a 20-minute drive from the Fylde Coast, Rawcliffe Hall is Harrison Holiday’s eighth holiday park in the north of England.
The 42.7-acre site comprises holiday homes for sale within a tranquil and rural setting and the historic mansion Rawcliffe Hall, which dates back to 1154 AD, and contains the park’s licensed and Cask Marque accredited club and bar, the focal point of the park.
Visitors to the park can make use of the bar’s family room, lounge, snooker, darts, and games rooms, as well as enjoy regular live entertainment, karaoke, and quiz nights in the club. The site also contains playing fields, woodland walks, a launderette, and a shop.
We have plans to redevelop and restore Rawcliffe Hall to its former glory. Some ideas include a converting the Hall to use as a boutique hotel in the future.
The Grade II-listed mansion has many links to history, including a near-miss by Oliver Cromwell and his army as they marched from Lancaster to Preston in the mid-1600s. There are even reports that Rawcliffe Hall has its own ghost, a young lady named ‘Miss Kitty’, who was favoured by one of the squires!
The park is ideally situated for countryside walks and rambling, especially around the local villages of Pilling, Hambleton and Great Eccleston. Neighbouring the park is Pheasants Wood Fishery, which is ideal for keen anglers, while golfers can find a host of different courses within a half-hour drive.
Park holiday home owners who wish to explore Lancashire and travel further afield can find Blackpool and the Fylde Coast 10 miles to the west, the historic town of Garstang 10 miles to the east, and Lancaster and the Lake District to the north.
The park has previously been awarded the David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award and will continue to maintain its environmentally-friendly relationship with the surrounding countryside. Patrons will find numerous bird boxes around the park and a pond, and there is a bat breeding programme organised by the local Bat Conservation Group. With help from local bee keeping hobbyist, Rawcliffe Hall is proud to have its own resident bees! Plans are in place to have the honey available in the shop with sales going to great causes.
Michael North, Operations Director, said: “We are excited to have Rawcliffe Hall join our growing roster of holiday home parks in the North of England. It’s situated in a beautiful area that offers plenty for visitors to enjoy from quant local villages to woodland walks around the site.”
Rawcliffe Hall Country Club and Caravan Park is open for over 10 months of the year, and site fees start from £3960 per year, inclusive of water and refuge. Click here to check our available holiday home properties at Rawcliffe Hall.
