Middlesbrough Council has extended the special holiday scheme for carers which it provides in association with Blue Sky Resorts, the Wakefield-based leisure company.
The scheme involves the council renting a specially-constructed static caravan, designed for use by people with a disability, which has been installed at Blue Sky’s Spring Willows Leisure Park at Staxton, between Scarborough and Filey.
The council initially agreed last year to rent the two-bedroom caravan for a period of 75 weeks over five years. But the response to the scheme has been so positive, it has now extended the rental period from 15 weeks a year to 26.
The fully-accessible caravan is equipped with a ramp for wheelchair access as well as other facilities, such as extra wide doorways, lower worktops and handrails.
Spring Willows’ General Manager, Ian Clark, said: “Purpose-built caravans like this are fairly rare, so we are delighted that Middlesbrough Council’s scheme has proved to be so popular. It is a terrific opportunity to provide an accessible caravan holiday in a beautiful part of the country for people with or without a disability.”
[spokesperson] from Middlesbrough Council Department of Social Care, added: “The provision of respite breaks has been shown to be one of the highest priorities for carers. This is why Middlesbrough Council Department of Social Care has purchased carers’ breaks at two venues, including Spring Willows. The caravan at Spring Willows is ideal as it is fully accessible, which is essential for some carers. The breaks have proved to be very popular and feedback we have received from carers who have stayed at Spring Willows has been very positive.”
This luxurious family holiday park is a magnificent suntrap, nestling into the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds on the outskirts of Scarborough. A first class family park centred on a beautiful natural spring and set amongst landscaped gardens. Located amidst the spectacular North Yorkshire Moors, Wolds, Farmlands and the seaside towns of Scarborough, Filey & Bridlington, Spring Willows Caravan Park offers:
- Free Modern Indoor Heated Pool
- Live entertainment in the function room
- Bar & Beer Garden
- General Store

Blue Sky Resorts, the Wakefield-based leisure company, has completed a £75,000 upgrade of Spring Willows Leisure Park, at Staxton, near Scarborough, which it acquired in 2009.
Ian Clark, General Manager at Spring Willows, said the upgrade included the construction of five new bases for holiday homes and the installation of improved site infrastructure, such as power points for touring caravans and better lighting.
The new bases, which have been constructed using environment-friendly materials with zero ph values, bring the number of fully-serviced stands for static caravans/ holiday homes on the 40-acre park to 61. There are also facilities for 64 touring vans, as well as another 20 unserviced pitches for casual users.
Mr Clark commented: “The upgrade is the first stage in our development programme aimed at bringing the park up to the same five-star standard as Blue Sky Resorts’ other sites, and to make it more ecologically-friendly. Our aim is for Spring Willows to win a David Bellamy Gold Award.”
Spring Willows boasts a range of comfortable luxury holiday homes for you to choose from. There’s no compromise on quality, each model is beautifully fitted and furnished and provides all the space you need to enjoy weekends, holidays, or longer stays. The park is open for 11 months of the year, so you can choose as much time in your home as you want too.

An East Yorkshire Caravan Park has become the latest acquisition of Wakefield based Blue Sky Resorts
Spring Willows Caravan Park, just off the Staxton Roundabout on the outskirts of Filey & Scarborough, has just become part of the Blue SKy family and offers a fantastic, family friendly environment with great access to all that the Yorkshire Coast has to offer.
The park used to be a touring only park but has in the last few years developed into a mixed holiday park with space for static caravans, touring caravans, and even a few tents. Holiday home owners at Spring Willows enjoy a lovely family friendly club with seasonal entertainment, as well as a pool and adventure play ground for the kids.
Blue Sky Resorts, which also operates parks in Wakefield, West Yorkshire and Hexham, Northumberland strives to offer customers a five star holiday experience at all its parks and has built a reputation for excellent customer service and five star park presentation standards.
Spring Willows Caravan Park
Mark Alston, Director of Blue Sky Resorts: “We’re very excited about the acquisition of Spring Willows. We aim to improve the already high standards on the park even further, adding value for our customers, and developing Spring Willows standards so that it becomes regarded as the best park in Yorkshire – it’ll face stiff competition from Nostell Priory though! We see Spring Willows as fitting perfectly into our existing small group – it is a small park where we can improve the standards, provide exceptional, personalised customer service, and which is small enough to offer our customers a unique, select environment in which to spend their leisure time.
“We already knew the park very well, having assisted the Spring Willows management over the last 3 years in developing their static caravan sales. It’s a great place to be, especially if you are looking for a safe, secure, friendly family park and we’re looking forward to developing the park over the coming years.”
Spring Willows has just over 50 static caravan plots, alongside 60 touring pitches. You can contact the park direct on (01944) 711938 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
