Where to Stay in Lancashire

Posted on

Wondering where to stay in Lancashire these upcoming holidays? Staycations are the new normal, but where should you be looking? We’ve long believed staycations are the best kinds of holidays, so here is Harrison Holidays’ inside scoop on the best place to spend your break.

A classic seaside holiday is loads of fun for all the family, and Lancashire is known for its scenic coastal views. Spending a holiday by the beach and boardwalk is not only perfect for taking in the fresh sea air, but Southport is also known for its many attractions and sights, which are guaranteed to keep little ones and adults entertained for weeks. Harrison Holidays’ Riverside Holiday Park is perfect for all kinds of getaways, whether you want to bring your own wheels or stay in one of our popular glamping hives. On site, we have a wealth of up-to-date, thoughtfully designed facilities such as a splash pool, indoor pool with heating, and ice cream parlour so that you never have to go too far for some fun.  

With Riverside Holiday Park as your base, you’re just a quick drive from Lancashire’s top outdoor activities! These include the beloved Pleasureland Southport Amusement Park, packed with rides and games for a full day’s adventures, including mini rides for the little ones. For families with small children, Jollies Barn is just around the corner and perfect for a supervised soft play on rainy days. We’re also close to the intriguing Formby Beach and Red Squirrel Sanctuary, where you can stroll through nature trails and stop at a local café on your way to visiting the area’s smallest (and reddest!) residents.

Fancy a staycation for grown-ups, but love the sound of Southport? Harrison Holidays’ Brooklyn Holiday Park is the answer if you’re wondering where to stay in Lancashire! Brooklyn Holiday Park has holiday homes for sale in Lancashire if you’re looking to own a staycation home for the long haul.  

Wonderfully located close to the Victorian coastal town, but set amid rich farmland, Brooklyn also has its fair share of close-by sights, such as the well-known Rotten Row where the local flower displays never fail to delight. In our park, we have a launderette for our guests, and we host coffee mornings that are great for meeting like-minded holiday adventurers. Nearby, you’ll find the beautiful Botanical Gardens of Churchtown with a delightful aviary, café serving home-cooked meals, bowling green, play area, and mini golf. If something a little more historical is what you’re after, Rufford town in the local area is definitely worth a visit for its five-hundred-year-old Tudor town hall. 

Looking for a relaxed vibe but not sure where to stay in Lancashire? Take in the unparalleled tranquility of the countryside in our adults-only Royal Umpire Holiday Park close to Preston. Harrison Holidays’ Royal Umpire Park is a brilliantly tranquil escape for couples, groups, and families with older members, spread out across sixty acres of scenic woodland and surrounded by scenic woods. If traditional English villages and rustic cafes are your cup of tea, Royal Umpire is for you!

Royal Umpire has some of Harrison Holidays’ best glamping experiences, with our HarriPod Gemini, HarriPod Aries, and HarriPod Classic hives for different budgets and needs. Each is tucked away in its own secluded wooded area, so that you can feel at home in nature with all the mod cons! You can get easily to Blackpool from Royal Umpire, for fish and chips, strolls along the boardwalk, and old-fashioned sweet shops such as Granddad Jim’s Traditional Sweet Shop in Leyland and Chorley. With nature and culture all around you, there’s no better place to stay than Preston.

Looking for somewhere to visit, but want to stay for the long term? Harrison Holidays’ holiday statics and lodges in Abbey Farm Holiday Park are perfect for staycationing at any time you like. We have a marvellous array of 13 ft, 14 ft and 22 ft caravans for sale in our modern, quiet park, which is set close to the rural market town of Ormskirk where you’ll find local cafes, museums, and shops. While it’s close enough to get to from Liverpool, Abbey Farm is just a short drive away from the best sightseeing in the area, with surrounding attractions such as the Martin Mere Bird Sanctuary and Burscough Wharf’s shops.
