Why you should own a Ribble Valley holiday home


The Ribble Valley is a hidden gem that’s situated in the county of Lancashire. Boasting picturesque villages and countryside, it’s a truly special area for those looking for a holiday home.

There are also plenty of reasons to love Lancashire; we could go on all day about why we love the area and what it has to offer. For many people, Lancashire provides the perfect location for a dream holiday home, and because of its vast size and variety of places, it’s the ideal getaway at any time of year.

Here at Holgates, we have a range of holiday homes for sale at our Ribble Valley park. So if you’ve been thinking about owning your very own holiday home in Lancashire, keep reading to see why we think you should consider a holiday home here!

Holiday Home Ownership in a National Landscape


The Lancashire countryside is quite something. Not only is Lancashire home to two National Landscapes, but it also houses vast open spaces, wildlife-rich woodlands, coastal regions and an incredible view of the Lakeland fells along the west coast. It’s certainly safe to say that it’s the perfect setting for holiday homes.

While there are a few major towns and cities around, Lancashire still stays true to its rural roots. Many of the attractions and places of interest are out in the country where holiday home owners can enjoy getting away from the hustle and bustle of city and town life.

Lancashire’s diverse surroundings offer breath-taking views and prove to be a welcome change from the dreariness of urban everyday life. If you’re searching for caravan holiday homes that reignite your love for nature and the outdoors, we guarantee that Lancashire’s beautiful surrounding landscape will do just that.

Great Location for Holiday Homes


Situated in the North West, Lancashire is in the perfect location for holiday homes in the UK. To the north, there’s the Lake District, right on Lancashire’s doorstep. This area is not to be missed, especially for those who enjoy outdoor activities such as fell walking and kayaking. There’s plenty to see and do in the Lakes, and it’s all within a few hours drive, making a great day out for those with holiday home ownership in Lancashire.

To the south, there’s Manchester, the northern powerhouse and main city in the north. Great for shopping, partying, and socialising, Manchester is a great social hub in the north and is easily accessible from holiday homes in Lancashire by car or by train.

To the east, you’ve got the Forest of Bowland (National Landscape) and the start of the Yorkshire Dales National Park that offers a natural haven much like the Lake District. Leeds isn’t too far away either and is easily accessible from anywhere within Lancashire by train or car.

Lancashire has a great rail network, with connections to many of the major cities in the UK, making it ideal for those who want good transport links to and from their holiday home.

Award-Winning Eateries in the Local Area


From cosy tearooms to gastro pubs, the Ribble Valley boasts a huge number of award-winning places to eat and drink for those staying at holiday homes.

Often referred to as the ‘food capital of the north’, many of the eateries in the Ribble Valley area use locally sourced produce giving you nothing but fresh, quality food and drink that everyone can enjoy.

Even further afield, Lancashire offers top-quality food and drink options to satisfy your tastebuds. Enjoy tasty pub grub with a true Lancashire warm welcome, indulge in tea and cake at a quaint cafe or melt over succulent seafood at a Michelin-Starred restaurant. Whatever your taste, you can be sure there’s a wide variety of delicious food options, making it a perfect holiday home destination .

Friendly Locals

One of the main reasons we love Lancashire is the local communities. You’ll find it hard to meet friendlier people anywhere in the UK!

Proud of their northern heritage and excited to show off their county to visitors, you’ll always find a warm welcome when looking for holiday homes in Lancashire. Whether you need help finding somewhere to eat, need advice or are simply looking for some good conversation, Lancashire locals are usually more than happy to help with your holiday home stay.

Friendly and welcoming – what more could you want from your holiday home location?
