Burton Constable Holiday Park and Arboretum is a wonderful hidden gem set amongst 200 acres of luscious woodland and lakes in the tranquil East Yorkshire Countryside and we are proud to hold many of the industry’s most prestigious awards, including:
- For more than ten consecutive years, the prestigious David Bellamy Gold Award for wildlife and conservation (projects)
- The coveted 5-Star Visit England badge of excellence
- The AA 5-pennant award holders with Tourism England
So, How Does a Holiday Park Attain and Maintain these Prestigious Accolades?
Well, it’s clear to see the moment you enter the opulent driveway that leads you to reception through the stunning 30-acre arboretum, that the park is meticulously maintained by a substantial and dedicated grounds team who are incredibly proud of the park and the work they do to keep it looking perfect.
Take Some Space and Just Breathe
As you enter the Park you’re met with an instant sense of holiday; the space between the lodges and static caravans is unparalleled and the whole park is surrounded by lush forestry – all your worries melt away, and you can let go and totally relax.
Following the driveway, you reach the touring park and the vast, glorious fishing lakes which have been commended by the Environment Agency for the health and quality of both the water and the fish within. When the park was established in 1968, its founder, Mr John Chichester-Constable, made it his mission to ensure the park sourced good stocks of tench, perch, roach, pike and carp. Mr C’s legacy lives on with the lakes being lovingly maintained by our hardworking team. Current fish stocks remain healthy and are fished responsibly by keen fisherfolk who come from near and far to while away the hours and take in the serene tranquillity of the lakes.
Something for the Whole Family
A short stroll from the bar is the children’s playground, which has its very own unique story…
Upgraded in March 2021 in keeping with the Grade I Listed 18th Century Capability Brown-designed Parkland and in direct view of magnificent Burton Constable Hall, the children’s playground features a range of climbing apparatus, swings (for both little and big kids), a slide and a large sandpit.
Surrounding the playground there is an expanse of fantastic open space for children to burn off energy and use imaginative play. And don’t forget to bring your dogs, the whole family will love exploring Bluebell Wood and the many walks around the park.
You can visit the bustling nearby maritime city of Hull which has undergone considerable redevelopment in recent years thanks to City of Culture investment and is home to multiple restaurants, shops, museums, theatres, art galleries, The Deep (one of the UK’s biggest and best aquariums), architecturally stunning churches and its very own Minster. Or, take a stroll over to the magnificent Burton Constable Hall for the day, a 16th Century Stately Home with world-famous collections and quirky surprises, including the famous whale skeleton featured in Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, and the lovely tea rooms serving a range of delicious meals and afternoon teas.
Nearby Beverley and Hull offer plenty of activity to occupy inquisitive minds, from the beautiful East Yorkshire coast to first-class golf courses or fun days out at the races.
