Blackadder Holiday Park: The latest edition to the Hanley group of parks

The business continues to grow and Hanley Parks are pleased to announce the latest purchase of Blackadder Holiday Park

Blackadder holiday park sits within fifteen acres of manicured grassland, in the foothills of the Lammermuir Hills. Centrally situated in the village of Greenlaw, just 37 miles South of Edinburgh.

The site takes its name from the local river which meanders through its centre. Blackadder Water, and the wildlife it supports, are the star attractions here and, our riverside pitches provide the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the view.

The Caravan Park is Designated by Scottish Natural Heritage as a special area of conservation (SSSI ) noted as supporting the presence of Atlantic Salmon, Otters, Sea, River and Brook Lamperey, all threatened species in a European context.

Herons frequently feed from the river, and Otters are occasionally spotted frolicking on the banks and in the water.


Great British Staycation

On July 4 in England caravan parks will be back open to the public and owners. New government guidance on the tourism industry has now been outlined, just in time for a perfect summer staycation.

At Hanley Caravans we’re extremely excited to welcome you all back to your caravans and lodges to enjoy the great British summer. Our blog this month looks into the stunning North of England and what you can do near our sites in Lancashire, the Lake District, and the North East.

Morecambe Bay

Stretching across North Lancashire and South Cumbria, Morecambe Bay is one of the largest estuaries in the UK. Altogether the space covers a massive 120 square miles and is the endpoint for some of the main rivers around the area including the Lune and Kent. It also has one of the quickest tides in the country, moving faster than you can run and covering a football pitch in minutes.

We have two caravan parks located in the sunny seaside town of Morecambe, where you can find beautiful beaches and plenty of places to visit. The city of Lancaster is also a short drive away with several heritage locations including the Maritime Museum, Lancaster Castle, and the remains of a Roman Baths.

Lake District National Park

As the UK’s most visited national park, the Lake District is a stunning place to explore and has many unique areas to find. More than 16 million people are thought to visit each year and it is dedicated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

All of our Cumbrian caravan parks are perfectly located to enjoy the countryside. Violet Bank is located to the north of the national park and has incredible views over the Buttermere Fells and towards Lorton Valley. There are endless walks to complete and there is something for everyone.

Yorkshire Dales

Both Sedbergh sites are on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and offer a peaceful place to escape. If you enjoy walking then this is the ideal space for a summer staycation.

The town of Sedbergh is full of book shops with unique hidden treasures for you to discover. A short walk or drive away brings you to the rolling hills of Yorkshire where you can walk and take in the beautiful surroundings.

North Pennines AONB

The North Pennines are one of the UK’s Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and stretches between Carlisle and Darlington. Around 770 square miles are covered in this area and both of our North East parks sit nestled on the edge of this.

Stanhope Burn and Linburn Beck are close to Bishop Auckland as well, which has plenty of heritage locations to visit as well as shops, cafes and more.

What Are the Current Guidelines?

Following the COVID-19 outbreak earlier in 2020, the UK went into a lockdown and caravan parks were closed for the foreseeable. The government has now started the process of lifting restrictions and on June 23 announced that campsites, caravan parks, and short term lets could now reopen.

There are of course some guidelines still in place so it’s important to check what you need to do. Social distancing is still really important as is regularly washing our hands.

If you do show symptoms of coronavirus, it is important that you do not leave your home and self-isolate. The NHS website has guidance on how to check if you have symptoms and what you should do.

To read more about the new government guidelines, please feel free to visit the website. There are also more social distancing changes due to come into place on July 4.

Celebrating English Tourism

Especially in current circumstances, it is more important than ever to support the UK tourism and leisure industry. As we face a period of downtime, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate the holiday and caravan parks that we love.

At Hanley Caravans our blog looks into celebrating English Tourism Week 2020 (25 – 31 May 2020) and how we can help parks facing difficulty at the moment.

Why Do We Have a Tourism Week?

Every year ETW or English Tourism Week is celebrated with week-long celebrations focusing on the tourism and leisure industry. It was started to help showcase the vibrant aspects of our holiday locations around the country and encourage more people to support local and regional businesses.

Overall, the visitor industry in England is worth a huge £106 billion each year alone and supports 2.6 million jobs. This provides a large amount of money for our economy and is important for employment and job creation.

Using the Virtual World

Normally we’d all be out visiting our holiday homes over the May Bank Holiday weekends. However, this year everything has changed and is completely different. We are facing a temporary different life and focusing on social distancing, keeping those we love around us safe.

Although, all is not lost for the industry! VisitEngland, who is responsible for English Tourism Week, came up with an alternative plan. They made the announcement that all the celebrations would be going virtual and online. The organisers asked MPs to take the time to record messages to encourage support for the sector.

Nigel Huddleston, Tourism Minister, said:

“English Tourism Week recognises the important role the industry plays in our local, regional and national economies, supporting jobs and attracting investment. This is a challenging time for the industry and we’re providing support through an unprecedented government package for businesses and workers. I hope everyone will use English Tourism Week as an opportunity to celebrate the sector, and we’ll be encouraging people to book a great British holiday as soon as it is safe to do.”

Adding to this, the Director of VisitEngland Andrew Stokes also said:

“English Tourism Week is all about highlighting the economic benefits that tourism brings to local economies, celebrating our diverse and exciting sector, and showcasing the quality, range and value of English tourism.

“While we cannot run events as usual this year, the spirit of the week has never been more important. Tourism has been one of the first and hardest hit economic sectors due to the Covid-19 pandemic and this year’s virtual week is dedicated to showing support for the industry, the millions of people who work in it and the hundreds of thousands of businesses impacted.

“It is also about looking towards the future recovery and doing everything we can right now to ensure that tourism can bounce back to once again become one of the most successful and vibrant sectors of the economy.”

What Can You Do?

The best thing to do is get involved! Whether you’re on your sofa, sat in bed or outside in your garden, no matter where you are you can get involved. Take a look at what your favourite caravan parks are doing and get involved with hashtags and social media posts.

Sharing photos of your holiday homes and memories is also a great idea too.

VisitEngland themselves are running a social media campaign called ‘I Support English Tourism’. They’re asking you to take a selfie or short video and post it on Twitter with the hashtag #EnglishTourismWeek20. On Thursday 28 May they will also be using the #ThrowbackThursday hashtag to share images of holidays around England.

Top 10 Things To Do Indoors

Forget about the Great Outdoors – for the next few weeks, it’s all about the Great Indoors! Following government guidance is vitally important as this will help our country to prevent the spread of COVID-19. On top of this, it ensures we are all looking after each other as much as we can.

This month our blog at Hanley Caravans takes a slightly different turn and looks at the top 10 things to do indoors.

1. Explore the Garden

Even though we have to stay at home, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the beautiful spring sunshine. For those that have a garden, this is the perfect place to relax. From reading a book on a picnic blanket to playing with your children or pets, there’s nothing better to enjoy.

2. Try Out Some New Recipes

Been eyeing up a cooking book for a while? There really is no better time to learn a new recipe and try out some new food. There are plenty of websites online that are full of recipes, from BBC Good Food to Delish you’re bound to find something.

There have also been some handy tips from people about how to use items already in your cupboard. Watch John Torode on ITV’s This Morning for some great ideas.

3. Have a Spring Clean

It may not seem like the most exciting thing to do, but tidying up can be relaxing. You could take this time to get everything organised at home! With busy working lives, it can be difficult to find the time to clean our homes as much as they deserve. Plus getting to the back of those kitchen cupboards could prove handy.

4. Find a New Favourite TV Show

There are endless streaming platforms out there to enjoy including Netflix, Now TV, YouTube, Amazon Prime and new channel Disney +. For those with kids or grandkids to look after, finding a new TV show to binge can be a great help. There are also on-demand services to use as well.

5. Indoor Easter Egg Hunt

As it’s coming up to Easter weekend, a lot of us are used to spending time with family. Easter Eggs are a favourite every year and you can still do this at home! Hiding Easter eggs, mini eggs or other treats around the house gives you an easy, cheap and safe alternative to larger Easter Egg hunts. Just try to remember where you put everything.

6. Listen to Music

One of the best ways to relax and unwind indoors is to sit back and enjoy some music. From Spotify to record players, the choices are endless. If you can’t get to a gig or festival, bring that to you! YouTube is full of festival clips for you to enjoy.

7. Camp Indoors

Missing your caravan? Take it up a notch and camp indoors! Set up your own space and pretend that you’re on a breakaway to your favourite location.

Another popular thing to do is urban camping. If you have a garden, you could set up your own camp and make the most of the sunshine and time with those in your household.

8. Research Your Next Trip

You may as well start planning your next trip away! The country’s lockdown won’t last forever and in the future we’ll be able to enjoy weekends away like we used to. Use this time to research into new locations or prepare for a new holiday.

You could find out more about things to do as well as places to visit. On top of this, you could even upgrade your current holiday home or invest in one if you don’t have one already.

9. Exercise and Stay Healthy

Being healthy is still important and we should all try to keep up with exercise where possible. Yoga is a great form of exercise and you can do this almost anywhere. There are also online classes being run by gyms and experts such as Joe Wicks.

Make sure you follow the most up to date government guidelines at all times.

10. Take Up a Hobby

Finally, why not take up a new hobby? From playing on a games console to learning a musical instrument, there are so many hobbies for you to take up. This gives you something to do and keeps your mind occupied.

For more details, please do not hesitate to get in contact with our team today.

As Spring approaches, it’s time for caravan parks across the UK to reopen their doors to holidaymakers. Most seasons range between 8 and 10 months, making the most of the glorious British summer. If a caravan has been shut up for a couple of months, it can be daunting coming back to open up and start using your unit again.

Our blog this month at Hanley Caravans takes a look into the new season and how you can prepare your static caravan and lodge. Below are some handy tips and pieces of advice to make it easy for you to start 2020 and enjoy the following season.

Bring What You Need

It may seem obvious, but make sure you bring everything you need! Most of us clear things out of a static before closing up for the winter period. This is to keep things safe but also ensure your caravan isn’t an obvious target for potential break-ins.

Depending on how much you’ve removed, you may need to make a list of what to take back. This will keep things simple and make sure you stay on top of what’s needed for a weekend break away. Things like duvet covers, crockery and tech systems are included in this. There’s nothing worse than driving for miles to find out you’ve forgotten the basics.

Check for Damp

One of the main things you should always do at the start of a season is to check over your unit. This way you can fix any issues as quickly as possible, preventing further damage and saving you time. Check the interior and exterior for obvious signs of damp or mould as these are common in statics that have been left for long periods of time.

In most cases, it’s easy to resolve the issue. Mould can easily be removed with wipes or mould remover. Although, you should take the time to look into the issue and find out what caused it. This can be anything from poor ventilation to leaks that you’ll need to repair as quickly as possible. If left, leaking could potentially cause damage to the structural integrity of your caravan.

Weather and Damage

Long winters and excessive rain are common in the UK, especially in the North of England. Checking for damage is normal and makes sure that nothing complex or sinister is at hand. Windy weather could have blown debris into your guttering which would need clearing and a wet weekend could have resulted in leaks.

Even though it’s unlikely for the weather to have caused damage, it’s always best to be prepared for this possibility. Giving your unit a check over at the start of the season can prevent a lot of problems from developing and allow you to make the most of your holiday home.

Water Systems and Taps

Again, it may seem like an obvious step in the new season but check your taps! Most people will drain down their units for the winter, so you need to ensure any systems are turned back on and working correctly.

It’s a good idea to walk around the unit and make sure all the taps are in the right positions.

Find Your Dream Holiday Home

At Hanley Caravans we have caravans around Lancashire, Cumbria and the North East of England. To find your perfect holiday home, please fill in our contact form.

Whether you’ve spent years enjoying holidays in static caravans or are new to the world of holiday homes, there are many things to know about the industry. Statics are a great investment and give you a perfect place to relax and take a break from everyday life.

Taking the time to find out more will give you an advantage, especially if you’re looking to become an owner. At Hanley Caravans our blog this month takes a look at all you need to know about static caravans, giving you an advantage.

What are Static Caravans?

In basic terms, a static is a caravan which does not move. Once you’ve selected your manufacturer, specifications and plot, your unit will stay in place and won’t move again unless you decide to switch to another park. There are so many different sizes, styles and prices available, making it easy to find an option no matter what your budget is.

On average, most statics will be sized between 22’ x 10’ or 40’ and 12’. They are built to a high standard (BS EN 1647), however are only meant to be used for temporary stays and not lived in. The lifespan will depend on how well it’s been made as well as conditions and how you care for it, so it’s always worth looking into maintenance.

Difference Between Statics and Park Homes

It’s important to understand the key differences between a static and a park home. Whilst static caravans are for temporary use during a season, park homes can be used to live in all year round if a location has the correct license in place.

Park homes are usually fixed into place and can be used as a permanent residence. Although, you should always check with a caravan park first to make sure you are able to live there.

Picking a Manufacturer

A huge part of the process is often deciding on the right manufacturer for you. If you’re buying a used caravan, you may not be as concerned about this as parks will have a number of units available for sale and these might not be from a wide selection of manufacturers. But it’s still worth looking into the makes that you like and searching for the best models for your requirements.

For those that are buying new, it is worth doing research into the right make for you to pick. Some of these include:

  • ABI
  • Atlas
  • Carnaby
  • Pemberton
  • Swift
  • Victory
  • Willerby

Finding the Right Location

Picking a caravan is important as it needs to be ideal for your overall plans. Although, if it isn’t in the right location then you could be missing out. There are thousands of caravan parks across the UK, each offering their own unique features. From rolling countryside to busy clubhouses, you can find almost anything that you are looking for.

A good idea is to make a list of what you’re looking for and narrow parks down using this. Otherwise, it can be easy to get lost and confused. Think about places you’ve enjoyed in the past or areas of the country that you’re excited to explore.

Other Places to Look

There are so many other websites and forusm online for you to go to for advice about statics. These include:

At Hanley Caravans we have several parks located across the North of England in North Lancashire, Cumbria, the Lake District, as well as County Durham and the Scottish Borders. For more details, please feel free to get in contact with us.

In the winter months it may be dark and cold, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. Even with less daylight and snowy days, there are plenty of places to visit and explore around the North of England.

Our blog this month at Hanley Caravans looks into the best places to visit in Northern England as well as some exciting up-and-coming events over the next 3 months in Cumbria, Lancashire and the North East.

Start Your Journey

At Hanley Caravans we have holiday parks located across Lancashire, Cumbria and the North East of England. For more details about available units for sale, please view our websites below.

North East

Not every park will allow you to stay over the festive period. However, if your holiday home is on a 12 month site, then you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy a break away over Christmas. Just because you’re in a caravan doesn’t mean you can’t make the most of decorations!

Our blog this month at Hanley Caravans gives you some handy tips on how to get into the festive spirit and enjoy a Winter’s night with those that you love.

Tinsel, Baubles and a Tree

Nothing says Christmas better than a load of tinsel draped over picture frames and shelving. There are plenty of options when it comes to putting a tree up inside your static caravan. You can find various sizes of tree in lots of different colours, so you’ll always be spoilt for choice. Smaller trees will help you to save on space but also enjoy Christmas.

Decorating them isn’t any different from doing it at home. You can put as many baubles and tinsel on as you want. Even if you aren’t in your caravan, you could still decorate it – just remember to take everything down.

Lights and Sparkle

Another decoration to use is lighting. As well as adding lights to trees, you could also place these around your caravan. This will add a bit more colour and help to make your holiday home more festive.

Although, if you’re worried about the cost of lights on your tree then there is no need to worry! A lot of smaller trees come with lighting already on them which is powered by a battery pack. If you can’t find one, then try finding battery powered fairy lights. Not only will this keep your costs down but it will also keep your caravan looking as festive as possible.

A lot of people love to use candles, especially as it makes you feel cosy. Although, it’s best not to do this in a holiday home. Instead, it’s worth investing in electric flicker candles which will give you the same effect but are much safer.

Exterior Decorations

If you get decorations that are safe to use outdoors, you could always decorate the exterior of your caravan. There are a few places that sell outdoor fairy lights as well as other items. Going overboard may not please everybody though, so consider your neighbours.

Enjoying Christmas at Our Parks

In need of some new decorations but unsure of where to go? At our parks in Lancaster, Cumbria and the North East there are plenty of markets and events to go to where you should be able to find some extra items for your holiday home.


Christmas Markets

Our parks are located in Sedbergh and Cockermouth, making it easy for you to make the most of local Christmas markets. These are taking place in Hawkeshead, Keswick, Windermere, Orton, Cartmel, Ambleside and more.

There is also the Taste of Cumbria Christmas Festival in Cockermouth between the 7th and 8th of December.

Light’s Switch On

Alongside markets, there are also some lights switch ons still to go! Windermere, Hawkeshead and Workington are all holding there’s on November 30.


Christmas Markets

Our parks in Morecambe and Hurst Lea are close to several markets, including the Harris Christmas Fair in Preston (30th November to 1st December), Clitheroe Christmas Market (7th, 14th and 21st December), and Garstang Victorian Christmas Festival (9th to 10th December).

Buying a Static Caravans

Interested in finding your own holiday home to make your own? For more details, please call us or visit our Lancashire, Cumbria and North East sites for units we have available.

With winter just around the corner, it’s time to unpack the woollen jumpers, wrap up and put some gloves on. Staying warm is one of our main priorities between October and March, especially as dark nights roll in and mornings become frosty. Taking care of your static caravan is just as important and there are a few things that you can do to make sure it is in top condition for the next season.

Our blog this month at Hanley Caravans looks into maintaining your caravan during the colder months, providing some handy tips and tricks.


There’s nothing worse than worrying about whether your static caravan is safe or not. Security is something to consider during the winter months as it can provide you with extra protection and much needed comfort.

Fitting hitch locks or wheel clamps makes it very difficult for anybody to attempt to move your caravan. On top of this, you can look into security systems to provide you with more reassurance. However if you are based on a site, this is something you should check with the owners first.

The most obvious things to do is to double check all of your locks before you leave. This includes your front door, any patio doors, as well as the windows.

Preparing For Down Season

Not everybody will have a static caravan that is sited on a 12-month holiday park. As most sites will undertake downtime during the winter months, it is crucial that you know how to protect your unit. There are a few things to do, including:

  • Checking window seals
  • Removing gas cylinders
  • Cleaning the exterior
  • Ensuring it is locked and safe
  • Drain down your caravan to prevent frost-related damage
  • Empty the fridge and freezer
  • Take any valuables away with you

As long as your caravan is sited somewhere that is safe, you should have nothing to worry about.

Don’t Forget About Inside

Everybody considers the exterior of a caravan, but have you thought about preparing the interior? If you won’t be in the unit for a while, it’s worth spending time cleaning. After all, there’s nothing worse than coming back to a messy carpet and smelly fridge!

When it comes to seating area cushions, you should leave these upright over winter. Doing this makes it easier for air to circulate and reduces the chance of mildew developing. If you have space to bring these home with you, then that’s an even better option.

You may think that shutting your curtains or blinds is better for you. In fact, it’s often better to leave these open. That way you can show people that there isn’t much in there and also improve circulation.

More Details

As a pet owner, it’s always important that you can find the perfect holiday destination for you and your four-legged friends. However, finding places that are pet friendly isn’t always easy. Whether you want to find a walk or a café to relax in after a long day, it can be hard work.

Our blog this week at Hanley Caravans looks into pet friendly places in Lancashire, giving you an ideal guide to the local area.

Exploring the Outdoors

One of the best things about being a pet owner is having more of an excuse to enjoy the outdoors! Dogs always need lots of walking and nothing will change when you’re on holiday. If anything, you’ve got more time to make the most of the walks.

There are plenty of scenic strolls to enjoy across Lancashire, giving you and your four-legged pals a workout. Below are some great places to consider:

The Lune Valley, Caton

A short distance outside of Lancaster is the Lune Valley, an area full of places to explore. You can park at Crook O’Lune Picnic Site in Caton and walk alongside the banks of the River Lune.

Wyre Estuary Country Park, Thornton-Cleveleys

Set on the banks of the River Wyre, this area has plenty of paths to wander down. There are also picnic sites as well as a small café on site.

Warton Cragg, Carnforth

Here there are both on lead and off lead areas to enjoy. There are stunning views over Morecambe Bay, making it one not to miss.

Nicky Nook, Scorton

If hilly walks are for you, then the Nicky Nook at Scorton near Preston is perfect. This is a circular walk which is around 6 km long. There is also a 200 m ascent.

As always, make sure that you keep your dog on a lead (unless a location says otherwise) and pick up after them. Also, if you are walking near cattle then make sure you stay on the public walkway and keep the dog on a lead for safety.

Enjoying a Bite to Eat

After a long day walking with your pets, it’s obvious that you’ll want to sit down and grab something to eat or drink. Luckily, there are several places around our static caravan sites for you to enjoy! Wherever you are you’ll be spoilt for choice.

For those visiting Morecambe or Lancaster, places to consider are The Station Hotel in Caton, Longlands Inn & Restaurant near Carnforth, and The Mill at Conder Green near Lancaster. Others to add to your list include The Top Lock in Chorley and The Farmers Arms in Great Eccleston.

You can find a full list of dog friendly food and drink places in Lancashire on the Visit Lancashire website.

Running Down the Beach

A lot of dogs love to stretch their paws along a beach. Luckily, Lancashire has some options for you to choose from. Half Moon Bay in Heysham is a stunning location, tucked away alongside the Morecambe Bay coastline. You can explore a few things here including the remains of St Patricks ancient chapel as well as the sandy beach.

There are other beaches at Bolton-Le-Sands and Hest Bank which are perfect for dogs that love the coast. On top of this, you can also walk dogs along Pilling Sands and Bispham beach all year round. Access is restricted for pets at Cleveleys, Fleetwood, Morecambe North, St Annes North, as well as Lytham St Annes. Although, you can still walk them here apart from between May and September.

About Our Parks

At Hanley Caravans we have 3 beautiful sites in Lancashire. Both Summerville and The Bungalow are in the seaside town of Morecambe, offering the perfect place to explore. Our other site Hurst-Lea is located in the Fylde countryside and is a short drive from Blackpool, Garstang and Preston.
