With over half a million caravan owners in the UK, it’s no wonder we have earned our spot as Europe’s second most nomadic nation. From seaside getaways to woodlands walks and everything between, there is nothing like hitting the open road with your trusty caravan in tow. But over the last year, an increased number of caravan owners have realised the benefits of owning a Seasonal Touring Pitch and this number is set to rise. With caravan ownership increasing more than 50% over the last ten years, including an increased jump in 2020, the 2023 season is set to be busier than ever!

If you are a keen caravanner you may already know exactly what a Seasonal Touring Pitch is, but those new to caravan ownership may wonder why everyone is talking about the benefits of their Seasonal Touring Pitches and why it’s a good idea to have one.

We offer Seasonal Touring Pitches at Akebar, and we are always happy to discuss the benefits with you, so don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll hopefully give you some idea of why it is good to own one, and you can make your decision to capture one of the best North Yorkshire spots in time for the busy summer season!


What is a Seasonal Touring Pitch?


A seasonal touring pitch is exactly what it sounds like – a space on a campsite that you can rent for longer than a weekend or a few weeks. Once you have bought a Seasonal Touring Pitch, you own the pitch for the entire caravan season and can leave your caravan secure there for extended periods of time.

This gives you the freedom to stay in one spot for as long as you like without constantly having to pack up and move around. And, instead of worrying about packing up every few days, finding new places to stay, you can take advantage of all that the local area has to offer without worrying about how long or short your stay will be. Owning a Seasonal Touring Pitch means that you get more time to enjoy activities like golf, (don’t forget we have a superb 18-hole Golf course!), or hillwalking and hiking in the area you like, without having to break down camp every other day.

Your seasonal touring pitch typically includes access to the park facilities like showers and laundry services, which are especially useful if you plan to stay for longer periods. Some, like Akebar, even supply Wi-Fi access and electrical hook-ups so that caravanners don’t have to go without modern luxuries while they are away from home.


Why is a seasonal touring pitch a good idea?


The obvious benefit of having your own Seasonal Touring Pitch is that you can settle into your own routine throughout your holiday. Your time away from home becomes a real holiday. There’s no need to constantly tow your caravan back and forth, and you will not need to pack it up with all your holiday paraphernalia, as you can leave all this equipment in your caravan. And, once you have bought a Seasonal Touring Pitch, you can typically come and go as much as you please. With holiday costs rising each year, owning a pitch can work out highly cost-effective. The expense of not towing your caravan back and forth alongside pitch fees, works out much cheaper than renting multiple campsites over the same period, which is helpful in the current cost of living crisis in the UK.

For us at Akebar, we think the reason owning a Seasonal Touring Pitch is a good idea is that you get to fully experience all that the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. The local area is stunning, with something for everyone to enjoy. For the adrenaline junkies, there’s hiking at Brimham Rocks or taking part in the infamous Three Peaks Challenge. For the more serene holidaymakers, a walk along the beautiful Aysgarth Falls, or a stroll around the Studley Royal Water Gardens might be more your thing. There is so much to do in North Yorkshire, we think you will be spoilt for choice.

With your own pitch, you get the benefits of a static caravan without the associated costs and can truly carve out a place for yourself in this area of outstanding natural beauty. Take advantage of the extra time you have on a more permanent holiday site to explore all that your local area has to offer. Get ready to make memories to last a lifetime with your friends and loved ones.
