Part of the Nelson Parks, group Florida Keys, near York, is a holiday lodge park that would be a lovely base for your holidays or a privately owned holiday lodge.
Open all year round for holiday and recreational use, Florida Keys is a beautifully and thoughtfully landscaped park where there are stylish holiday homes you can buy. This might be the largest park in the Nelson Parks group, however there is still a peaceful atmosphere here and a friendly, community feel too. Enjoy quiz nights at the local public house and communal barbecues here, perhaps accompanied by a glass or two of your favourite tipple.
There are a variety of holiday lodge sizes (40ft x 20ft up to 50 x 22ft) at Florida Keys, so you can find something that perfectly suits your needs. But whatever you choose, you can spend your holidays here with the peace of mind that there is a secure electronic gate at the park's entrance, plus the site manager is available all year round.
If you are considering a holiday lodge at Florida Keys, there's so much to do. If you want to leave your car behind for the day, there's a bus stop at the park's entrance, so getting about by bus is wonderfully easy and straightforward.
Many people holidaying in this area will want to visit York and there are so many things to do in this historic city for visitors of all ages – all about half an hour by car or 45 minutes on the bus from Florida Keys. York Minster, York Castle and the Jorvik Viking Centre are some of the top attractions here. You might also like to walk the city's walls, wander around The Shambles, tour the National Railway Museum or, if you're brave enough, go to the York Dungeon, don't lose yourself in the York Maze! Yorkshire Air Museum is also just a 15-minute drive from this park and makes for an interesting day out.
Fancy a day beside the seaside? The small seaside resort of Hornsea is within an hour's drive of this holiday park – and you can enjoy some bargains at Hornsea Freeport, a factory outlet shopping complex found here. But, of course, many visit Hornsea to wander along the promenade and enjoy the beach. The perhaps better known resort of Scarborough is a little over an hour's drive from Florida Keys. As well as enjoying a day at the beach and the harbour, why not have a meal out, visit Scarborough Castle, maybe see a show at the Scarborough Open Air Theatre or go to the Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary.
Are you a fan of the great outdoors? If you're spending your holidays at Florida Keys, the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is very close by – great for walking, cycling or maybe canoeing on the River Derwent. The North York Moors National Park is also easily accessible from this park, the wild expanses of heather moorland waiting for you to explore them, on two feet, two wheels or on horseback, and it's also a great place for bird watching.
Being so near the A1079 makes Florida Keys a handy place to stay if you want to visit Yorkshire and see the area on your holidays, and the holiday lodges at this park will ensure you enjoy a comfortable and restful break.
