Providing great holidays across the Lancashire/Cumbria border for more than 60 years, we have now expanded into the Ribble Valley with the purchase of Rimington Leisure Park newly branded as Holgates Ribble Valley.

Acquired in January 2019, Holgates Ribble Valley (Rimington Leisure Park) is located in the heart of the Ribble Valley. The peaceful countryside park, which sits in the shadow of the atmospheric Pendle Hill, is the latest park to join the Holgates Holiday Parks collection across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.

Owner, Michael Holgate is now planning a period of investment in the park, which is open to holiday home owners all year round. The new bosses intend to spend around half a million pounds over the next 12-18 months to bring Rimington in line with the Holgates prestigious and trusted collection of parks.

Since the purchase of the park in January 2019, thousands of pounds of hedging plants have been planted and sewage and wiring has already been improved. A new security barrier will be installed to give owners complete peace of mind that their holiday home will always be safe and secure even when they are not on site. Further works will include resurfacing roads, adding new street lighting, and brand new lodge pitches will also be available shortly.

Michael Holgate said: “Like all of our other parks, Holgates Ribble Valley is a beautiful park in a stunning location and has great potential. We thought it was a perfect fit for Holgates and it offered us the opportunity to further expand our family business deeper into Lancashire.”

“Hopefully existing owners will start to see the benefits of the work we’ve been putting in to tidy up the park and potential new owners can be assured that the park will deliver the same standards that have come to be expected at other Holgates parks. It really is an exciting time to be an owner on Holgates Ribble Valley.”

The Holgates Family Group is a selection of family owners and operated holiday parks across Lancashire, Cumbria and the Ribble Valley. Holgates Ribble Valley being the only park located in the heart of Lancashire near Gisburn and Clitheroe.

Holgates Ribble Valley (Rimington Leisure Park) is deep in the heart of the Ribble Valley countryside and close to both the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
