Fancy owning a caravan in the Yorkshire Dales so that you can holiday whenever you want? Read our blog on the best things about buying your own holiday home


Ask any of our team here at Akebar Park and they’d jump at the opportunity to tell you why you should come to the Yorkshire Dales for your next holiday – and all your holidays following!  But what they’ll also delight in telling you is that there is a way you can make your experience even better – by owning your very own static caravan here.


Of course, the reasons why this is the case could scale into the hundreds, but to save you time, we’ve narrowed them down to the four best ones…




1) Your holiday is far more likely to be stress-free


2) You can enjoy the beauty of Yorkshire with the comforts of home


3) The Yorkshire Dales offer a wonderful variety day out for everyone


4) Owning a caravan offers better value for money than renting one


Even with the greatest intentions for a relaxed and enjoyable break, the majority of booked holidays are coupled with some level of stress. Whether that’s because of difficulties finding your accommodation, not being within easy reach of shops and conveniences, or not having suitable facilities on site for your needs, it’s easy to see how stress can pile up and put a damper on the beginning of your holiday.


Owning a caravan in the Yorkshire Dales on the other hand gives you the luxury of visiting without the fraughtness of booking, as well as the knowledge that you’ll have everything you need ready and waiting for you when you arrive. At Akebar Park, we have the added bonus of our onsite shop and plenty of supermarkets just a 10-minute drive away, as well as a wide range of facilities, including WiFi internet, shower and washroom facilities and a 3-acre dog exercise area – not to mention ‘The Friars Head’, one of the best pubs in Wensleydale, located right onsite!


If you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and surround yourself with peace and tranquillity, the Yorkshire Dales are truly the place to be;  from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves, each valley or ‘dale’ has its own distinct character, bursting with flower-filled meadows and surrounded by stunning heather moorlands. By owning a caravan in the Yorkshire Dales, you’ll have the access that you need to make this beautiful place your home from home. At Akebar Park, our caravans are specially designed to give you all this and more, without compromising on quality, so you’ll have the full opportunity to relax.


Despite their above-described tranquillity, the Yorkshire Dales are never short of incredible days out. In fact, there’s something here to suit everyone: whether you’re bringing your family along for a fun-filled excursion, treating a loved one to a relaxing romantic getaway or you’ve decided to embark upon a solo adventure, owning a caravan in the Yorkshire Dales opens up a plethora of opportunities. At Akebar park, we’re especially lucky to be at the heart of them all, including places such as the Brymor Ice Cream Parlour, The Forbidden Corner, Lightwater Valley Theme Park, Thorpe Perrow Arboretum and Bird of Prey Centre and – of course – the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes, home to Wallace and Gromit’s favourite cheese!


With so many things to see and do in the Yorkshire Dales, and all of them so enjoyable, you’ll be sure to want to come back time and time again. Owning your own holiday home here opposed to renting one therefore offers great value for money in the long run. Although this may seem like a pipe dream, we offer a variety of different finance plans on our caravans at Akebar Park, so it could come true quicker than you think. You can take a tour through the caravans we currently have on offer here.

Unanimously, these four things (plus all the others we didn’t have time to write about) have contributed to our proud status as one of the most renowned holiday park destinations in the country, and one of the best holiday parks in North Yorkshire!
