The weather stayed fine for the first Open Weekend of the season as many current owners and visitors to the park caught their first glimpse of the new ‘Bishops Brook development at York House’


...‘Stunning views’

…’great quality of finish’

...’love the use of wooden sleepers for the terracing’

….’a really quality feel’


were just some of the very positive comments we received, for which we were most grateful.


Work will continue over the next couple of weeks, by which time the stream feature and fountain will be in place, helping to add even more character and interest to Bishops Brook.


Visitors are most welcome and you can still reserve your plot on this superb development.

We recently received this email regarding The Old Hall Holiday Park. It's always nice when the hard work of the staff and Park mangers is recognised by visitors...

"I have been going to contact you for sometime. My wife and I have been using Old Hall site well before Keith was Warden. We normally stay for the month of May, and really enjoy the site and surroundings. We have to say that since Wendy and Denis took over as Wardens and with input in making the financial commitments yourselves, in our opinion Old Hall is the most improved site that we visit and we do visit some sites throughout the year. When we think that it can't get any better, the next year sees us wrong. The addition of the hard standings has improved the touring part immensely. You have two of the best Wardens we have ever come across. Wendy will stop what she is doing and she is always doing something to help and advise or a friendly chat which makes the whole experience worthwhile. We wish them well in their fund raising and look very much to visiting Old Hall next year.
Yours sincerely
David & Joan Hodgson"

The River Swale fishing pegs at Swaleside Park are providing some excellent fishing this year.


The photo shows Barry Whitwick who caught this 9lb 4oz fish last week on the River Swale fishing pegs that are allocated to residents and visitors to Old Hall and York House/Abbots Green.


He regularly fishes on that stretch of river and is now looking to catch even bigger barbel.
