Top 5 things to do near Far Grange and on park
Michaela McDonald is General Manager and Harriet Furness is Head of Experience at Far Grange in Yorkshire. They love the leisurely feel and the friendly community on this owners-only park, and told us the top five things to enjoy and explore during a break here.
1. Go fish!
We have a fishing lake and an angling club on park, which holds proper competitions. We spent £5000 on fish in 2022 and have a mixture of them. We work really closely with the environmental agency to keep our fishing lake to that standard. It’s an eco-hub really for wildlife and fish.
2. Explore Yorkshire
We’re about 15-20 minutes away from the historic town of Beverley, which is also home to Beverley Races. If you come out of the park and take a left you end up at Beverley and Hull and Hornsea, if you take a right you end up going into Bridlington, which is about 20 minutes away.
3. Take a walk on the wild side
We have miles of walks all the way around the park. You can go for a walk at the dog-friendly beach, walk around our lovely lakes area, and the woodland and forest. In fact we had some owners who have been here for five or six years come on a winter walk and they didn’t realise all of the routes that existed. I think people are surprised by how big the park and the walking area is.
Our lakes area is like a woodland escape. We’ve also got a fairy walk there – the team have really put a lot into keeping that going, with little fairy houses that we change seasonally – so at Christmas there’s elves, at Halloween there’s spider webs and pumpkins.
4. Play golf
You must become a member (fees apply) and play golf because we’ve got a Golf England standard golf course. We’re the only Links golf course at a Haven park. There’s also a golf club with a bar there and we have a live singer there every Friday night during main season!
5. Join the community
Definitely come along to our events and activities so that you get to know other owners, and feel part of the community.
In our licensed lounge area, we do loads of events. There’s something called the Friday Night Soiree where sometimes have visiting food trucks, like wood-fired pizzas and pies. We do quizzes in there, we do pamper evenings, We’ve got lots of things to do.
