The new phase of an award-winning holiday park near York has been officially opened.

Nigel Adams, MP for Selby and Ainsty, did the honours at the Hollicarrs Holiday Park in Escrick.

Mr Adams, who is also the Government Minister for Culture, Media and Sport, cut the ribbon at the prestigious Lawley development, which comprises 42 luxury holiday lodges.

Charlie Forbes Adam, proprietor of the Escrick Park Estate, which owns Hollicarrs, said:

  • This is a tremendously exciting initiative.

    Lawley builds on the success of our first two phases at Hollicarrs, Wenlock and Harts Nook, and provides fabulous holiday lodges for everyone wanting to enjoy the sanctuary of our estate and visit North Yorkshire’s many tourist attractions.

Mr Adams added: “The success of Hollicarrs has been a great boost to tourism in the York and Selby region.”

Short term breaks

Lawley is now offering short-term breaks in its luxury holiday lodges in time for the February half term.

The new owners are making their Lawley lodges available for hire when they are not using them themselves. This is a brand-new Escrick Park incentive for those keen to have the experience of owning a holiday home, but also want to rent out the lodges out when they are not using them.

Hollicarrs is a private, secure, natural sanctuary that is set within the 250-acre woodlands that make up the historic Escrick Park Estate.


Lodges and holiday homes are well-spaced to make sure all owners can enjoy the natural beauty and tranquillity of their surroundings.

Mike Marshall, from Dunnington, near York, is a new Lawley owner. He said:

  • The key for me is that this isn’t just a typical rental opportunity, rather a fabulous chance for me to create the perfect holiday lodge, down to the last detail, in the most beautiful and peaceful environment with stunning views, which will provide pleasure and peace for everyone who stays here.

Short term breaks start from £395 for three nights for a two-bedroom lodge with sunken hot tub.
