York House Holiday Park has been awarded a prestigious accolade by leading holiday provider Hoseasons after customer reviews placed it among the best in the North of England.

The family-run site near Thirsk has been named by Hoseasons as a Diamond Award finalist in the Relax & Explore small parks category for the North of England. Not only was it one of just three parks in the North to receive the award, but it was the only one from Yorkshire.

The Hoseasons awards celebrate exceptional quality and outstanding customer service, and are based purely on customer reviews. We’re delighted to say that York House scored a fantastic overall 9.7 out of 10 from 41 reviews on the holiday provider’s website.

Manager Samantha Reay, who runs the 23-acre park with her husband John, said: “We are thrilled to be recognised by such a well-known holiday provider, especially because the award is based on reviews from our guests. It’s lovely to receive recognition of the hard work which has gone into the park, as well as the efforts of all our staff to make sure our visitors are very well looked after when they arrive and then throughout their stay.

“We always go that extra mile to ensure every guest has a great experience and hopefully returns at some point in the future. I am extremely proud of our team.”

The Hoseasons award follows hot on the heels of another major accolade for the site. Earlier this year, for the 15th year running, York House Holiday Park and Abbots Green Luxury Lodges received a gold David Bellamy Conservation Award from top botanist David Bellamy, in recognition of their conservation work and green credentials.

Darrell Fitches, from Hoseasons, said: “It is a fantastic achievement to be recognised in the small parks category, given the amount of competition there is in the North of England.”

Sitting in the shadow of the famous White Horse at Kilburn, family-friendly York House Holiday Park also boasts a 5-star tourism rating from Visit Britain and an award-winning coffee shop, The Old Barn. It is one of six sites owned and run by YHL Parks across North Yorkshire and Scotland.
