Looking for accommodation?

Overbrook Caravan Park cottages

You don’t have to own a caravan, motorhome, camper van or tent to enjoy our Tranquil Parks! There’s a huge range of accommodation on offer.

We’ve got everything from cottages and a motel to luxury glamping accommodation, static caravans, shepherd huts and cosy pods . Here’s a quick update in case you want to book a holiday with friends or family that ‘don’t do camping’, or if you’re looking for accommodation options for yourself.

All Tranquil Parks accommodation is, of course, exclusively for adults over the age of 18. For more information, see our blog on glamping from last summer.

Holiday cottages at Overbrook Caravan Park, North Yorkshire

Many touring park guests like to bring family members with them to stay at the Overbrook holiday cottages. There are four delightful self-contained cottages in what was formerly the Thornton-le-Dale railway station.

Converted and finished to a high standard, the cottages are a level half-mile from tea rooms, pubs, restaurants and shops. There are also regular bus services to York, Helmsley, Scarborough and Whitby.

New shepherd huts at Back of Beyond, Dorset

Romantic shepherd huts / gypsy caravans will be ready for the start of the 2019 season at Back of Beyond Touring Park on 1 March. The new huts are dog friendly and are located in a picturesque spot near the small river which runs through the park. They come equipped with wood burners, on which you can boil a kettle, and an outdoor camping kitchen.

There’s a glamping village at Back of Beyond which also has a luxury yurt,  three pods (one is dog friendly) and two lodges which are also suitable for dogs. Shepherd huts, pod and dog at Back of Beyond

Deluxe pod at Grooby’s Pit, Lincolnshire

Located around a two-acre coarse fishing lake, Grooby’s Pit has two camping pods. The deluxe pod, introduced last year, sits on the edge of the lake with exceptional views. Suitable for two people (sorry, no pets), it has a large split-level deck with an outdoor wood burner and inside there’s a TV and all the comforts of home.

The other camping pod is on its own private peninsular on the edge of the lake. It has a deck over the water with two private fishing pegs. It’s a perfect spot to while away the day watching the ducks and geese.

Stylish new lodge experience for Bath Chew Valley

Joining the very popular Fairswood Lodge at Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park will be another lodge, also for 2 adult guests. Situated alongside the park’s managed woodland, the new lodge is designed with similar top quality facilities as Fairswood Lodge, with a little extra living space for guests wishing to stay for longer holidays.

Chew Valley Lodges are located mid-way between Chew Valley Lake and Bishop Sutton village shop and inn, a few moments’ walk away. The village bus-stop is convenient for visiting Bristol, while Bath, Chedddar Gorge, Wells and the Somerset coast can all be reached within 30 minutes’ drive.

Fairswood Lodge was voted the 9th best glamping experience in the UK, 2018, with many guests mentioning the lodge’s large heated veranda and sundeck with countryside views over the 5-star Bath Chew Valley Touring Park. Bookings for the new lodge will be available on 01275 332175 from the end of March.
