Company History

We take pride in our heritage. George Harrison founded the business with only one caravan in 1970. He grew the business steadily from here, extending into the North East and building up his stock to offer caravans for sale from all leading manufacturers. Then came the bold move into residential parks seven years later, with the purchase of Cringles caravan park in Silsden. This was followed with other parks in Preston, Hartlepool, Huddersfield and Heysham.These days, the business is now under the direction of the second generation of Harrisons and is managed by George’s three sons: George, William and Robert. The Harrison family, as working directors, have developed the business to its current position of four holiday parks – three luxury parks in the Southport area and a more recent expansion into Cumbria.
