The Challenge:

Hollicarrs Holiday Park’s idyllic, rural location is its major selling point, but puts it far away from infrastructure services. In an increasingly connected world, fast and reliable connectivity is becoming a prerequisite for prospective tenants. Previous attempts to bring internet connectivity to the Park had yielded mixed results and frustration for residents. A better connection was required, without major changes to existing infrastructure.

Client Profile:

Hollicarrs Holiday Park is part of the Escrick Park Estate and offers luxury lodge holiday breaks in a beautiful surrounding location, close to York in North Yorkshire. The park offers activites including bike trails, nature walks, fishing, bowles, horse riding and tennis.

  • Peaceful natural haven
  • Owned holiday homes and lodges
  • Rural location
  • Peaceful, tranquil Yorkshire woodland

The Solution:

razorblue increased capacity at a nearby Point Of Presence, and brought business-grade connectivity to the Park’s lodges whilst overcoming environmental obstacles:

  • Arable land – laying a cable was not possible, so a wireless link at height was used
  • Lodges built deep within a forest – switched from wireless to fibre, going underground to carry the connection to the Park’s cable TV distribution equipment

The Result:

The Park implemented a modern solution in a difficult environment without major changes to existing Park infrastructure. Residents in 85 lodges have taken up connectivity and are receiving quality and stable broadband over existing underground infrastructure. Feedback from residents has been excellent, leading to continued and expanding take-up across the Park.
