While any season is a good time to venture on static caravan holidays in the Yorkshire Dales, spring is arguably the best.

From experiencing nature at its finest to enjoying some of the area’s best-loved annual events, there’s everything to love about visiting the Yorkshire Dales during this time of year.

Not convinced? Read on to discover why spring really is the best time of year for Yorkshire Dales caravan holidays!


4 reasons spring is the best season for Yorkshire Dales caravan holidays:

1. Nature is truly at its best

Spring is, of course, the season of new beginnings – and no new beginnings are quite so breathtaking as the natural beauties to be found in the Yorkshire Dales National Park at this time of year!

From watching the afternoon sun glinting off the glassy drop of Aysgarth Falls to embracing the rainbow delights of ground flora in Grass Wood, Wharfedale, you won’t be short of opportunities to see nature at its absolute best and enjoy a multitude of outdoor activities during your springtime stay.

Plus, if you own a caravan or lodge at Akebar Park, you can make the most of your decking to enjoy the amazing wildlife right on your doorstep – or enjoy a leisurely stroll around our stunning golf course!


2. The indoors is just as enjoyable as the outdoors

On the spring days where the weather isn’t accommodating enough to enjoy the outdoors, there’s still plenty you can do to keep busy and entertained indoors during the spring months, as this is the time when many attractions re-open for visitors.

Bolton Castle is just one such attraction, giving you the chance to immerse yourself in some of the Dales’ intriguing history, whilst the Wensleydale Creamery (a firm favourite of many holiday homeowners here at Akebar Park) will be ready and waiting to welcome you for their famous “UK’s flagship Cheese Experience.”

And of course, you can always enjoy the indoor delights of your holiday home from home, too!


3. It’s neither too crowded nor too quiet

Static caravan holidays in the Yorkshire Dales are exceptionally popular during the summer months, due to school holiday closures and the warmer weather. This can often mean that certain places and attractions become busy. There’s certainly always a bit of a buzz in the air!

Conversely, the winter months where caravan parks are open are particularly quiet, with everyone staying inside their holiday homes to keep cosy and warm while the winter winds howl, and the snow settles on the surrounding valleys and hills.

Springtime in the Yorkshire Dales, however, seems to have harnessed the perfect balance of both, encompassing enough calm and tranquility in order for visitors to truly relax, whilst not being so still and quiet that it becomes isolating.


4. Some of the best local events happen in the spring

From the Tour de Yorkshire and the Malton Food Lover’s Festival to “Blooms” Art Exhibition and Earth Day Weekend events – and much more – you certainly won’t be at a loss for things to do during your springtime static caravan holidays in the Yorkshire Dales.

In fact, here at Akebar Park, we are in close proximity to a wide variety of different events at this time of year – so, whether you decide to visit alone, with a partner, with friends or family, there will be something to suit everyone.


Spring is undoubtedly our favourite season here at Akebar Park…

… but we’re open for most of the year, so you can come to visit during whatever season suits you best! Whenever you decide to stay, you can be positive of a warm welcome and a fantastic holiday experience.
