Where to Stay in the North West

Posted on

Headed on holiday, but not sure where to stay in the North West? Staycations are hotter than ever, but choosing the ideal spot can be tough. Coast or country? Culture or nature? At Harrison Holidays, we’ve got a truly exciting range of ideas for where you can spend your next break, for the ideal getaway from the everyday grind. If you’re on the hunt for brilliant staycation ideas, here’s our list of the top places to stay in the North West!

Southport has been a top UK holiday spot forever, and for good reason. From the beautiful scenic coastline to the charms of the surrounding towns, there’s plenty to love about a classic seaside getaway. If you’re looking for some peace and quiet, with lots of nearby activities, our adults-only Brooklyn Holiday Park is the perfect destination for you!

At Brooklyn Holiday Park, you’ll be close to Southport itself, but surrounded by all the tranquility of lush rural farmland. Our beautifully quiet park is an ideal base for exploring, just a few miles away from Blackpool Tower and its breathtaking views of the Fylde Coast – one of the best things to do here is tuck into a fish and chips before checking out the boardwalk. You’ll also be near to the old Edwardian English village of Rufford, known for its historic town hall and annual Easter Egg Hunt, and the beautiful Rotten Row near Victoria Park, which is the perfect spot to catch some spectacular flower displays.

At Brooklyn we have a marvellous range of holiday homes for sale in the North West, and offer convenient transport links to Liverpool. With our regular coffee mornings, we have a friendly guest community so you can meet new friends!

Wondering where to stay in the North West with children? Riverside Holiday Park is our most popular park for families large and small, also within easy reach of Southport. Our glamping hives, luxury holiday homes, and touring pitches cater to all group and family sizes and come with exclusive access to Riverside’s exceptional on-site facilities. If you’re not up for exploring, why not check out our outdoor splash pad, or enjoy a dip in our heated indoor pool? How about some fun on the slide in our modern adventure playground?

For the thrill-seekers among you, Riverside Holiday Park is the perfect holiday base for visiting Pleasureland Southport Amusement Park, known for its games, lights, rides, and kids’ mini rides. You can also check out the yearly Southport Air Show, and watch the Royal Air Force put on a show in the sky!

Looking inland at where to stay in the North West? Preston’s your answer, at Harrison Holidays’ Royal Umpire Holiday Park. We have a selection of brilliant glamping hives in our well-maintained park, which is located a short drive from the traditional English village of Croston. With our HarriPod Classics, HarriPod Geminis, and our HarriPod Aries to choose from, you can pick your ideal retreat in your own wooded area, just a short walk to Royal Umpire’s magical sunken garden. Here, a wealth of wooded walks lead off the park itself, so you can enjoy picnics, rambles, and strolls through nature, and set your own pace in the countryside.

A great range of day trips and sightseeing adventures are available near Royal Umpire, from Preston’s Harris Museum and Art Gallery to the quaint stalls of Heskin Hall Shopping Village & Art Gallery nearby. Make sure to pick up a handmade keepsake and stop for a slice at Preston’s one-of-a-kind Cat Cafe!

Searching the kind of North West break that you can enjoy whenever? At Harrison Holidays’ Abbey Farm Holiday Park, we have a range of beautiful holiday homes and lodges that you can make your own. Our Abbey Farm Holiday Park homes for sale include guest-only access to our excellently-maintained facilities, including our mini library, launderette, and peacefully scenic fishing lake full of roach, tench and perch. While Abbey Farm is an adult-friendly park, we also have a delightful playground for visiting little ones, and the historic town of Ormskirk is just nearby. Or why not visit Crosby beach, just a few miles’ drive from Abbey Farm itself?
