Testimonials from Akebar Park’s happy holiday home residents

Here at Akebar Park, our holiday homeowners and guests of the park are our priority. After all, without them, where would we be?

From our stunning new holiday lodges for sale to our idyllic Yorkshire Dales location and exceptional on-site amenities, we do everything we can to offer our residents a stay to remember—time after time after time.

You know what they say—the proof is in the pudding. That said, here’s what our holiday home residents had to say about us…


“We arrived on site in 2014 and fell in love. Two static caravans and now a lodge later we still feel the same. 

We would never have chosen a site with a clubhouse and looked for something different, which is what we found here. The Friars Head is a lovely cosy bar with the West Wing available for special meals. The location between Bedale and Leyburn couldn’t be better and it’s close to the A1 for easy commuting. There is a lovely play area and lots of greenery around the site. 

The early arrival of the swans every season is a sight to behold, and we look forward to seeing them every year. All of the staff are always helpful and friendly. Keep up the excellent work.”

“Akebar Park has that unique ability to be whatever you want it to be. For us, it is the peace and tranquillity offered by owning a beautiful lodge in the area known as Trawden Gill.

We are surrounded by the beautiful but challenging 18-hole golf course, and our dog loves nothing better than running and playing in the two large, fully fenced in dog exercise areas – a rare treat on a holiday park.

The friendly, helpful staff are always around should you need them but remain quietly in the background when you don’t.

As we enter our thirteenth season on the park, I am struck by the way the park develops and maintains the already beautiful setting that it enjoys, working with nature to encourage wildlife to make it their home also.

We look forward to spending another thirteen years in the park.”

“We have owned our holiday home for 16 months. We chose Akebar because of its proximity to Bedale and Leyburn. It’s also in the heart of the Dales and surrounded by hills and trees. It has a tranquil feel and is peaceful. There are lots of places to enjoy scenic walks, which our dog loves.

Our holiday home is adjacent to the beck, which runs through the site. The site attracts wildlife, especially birds, so if you love nature, it’s great. In the warmer months, it’s lovely to sit on the decking and relax with a glass of wine.

The site is well maintained, clean and well kept.

The Friars Head pub is at the top of the site and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and a good place for a chat with fellow owner’s and locals alike. It is dog-friendly, and he’s made lots of four-legged friends. 

In the summer there is a lovely outdoor area. The bar staff are friendly and make you feel at home. The site manager Mark is always happy to help and has a professional approach.”

Excellent site, good location, friendly and helpful staff, good size pitches for tourers. On site shop excellent, if chris doesn’t have what you want he will try and get it for you. Facilities clean and covid aware. All in all a good week away.

We had a cracking few days camping here. The weather was stunning which always helps.

For campers, the ground was level and reasonably sheltered. The facilities block has obviously recently been done up and to a good standard. The showers were warm and the block was bright and airy, and kept clean. We were probably in one of the furthest pitches from the block but it was only a couple of hundred yards from the block.

Beautiful place. Very big areas for camping. Toilets/shower blocks are very clean and tidy. Stayed here twice now. The restaurant is lovely food was beautiful. Pricey but only what u would expect to pay in the dales. Would recommend
