Omar heads to Harrogate for the Great Holiday Home Show

Omar is delighted to be exhibiting at The Great Holiday Home Show at the Great Yorkshire Showground, Harrogate from 8th – 10th September for the public days, and again on the trade days from 12th – 14th September.

This is the first year the show will take place, replacing the show which used to take place at The Lawns in Cottingham, Hull.  Billed as the UK’s biggest outdoor holiday home, motorhome and caravan show, the event will also feature a range of activities for families to enjoy as part of a great day out, and most of the biggest leisure industry brands will be in attendance.

There will be twelve models available to view on the Omar Group stand, and all of them will have decking and steps by the group’s decking company UK Sundecks. Experts will also be on hand from Omar Park Development Services and Omar Refurbishment Services, so all bases will be covered, whatever showgoers are looking for.

With so many models set to be on show, the selection on display offers something for all tastes and budgets, from holiday homes and luxury lodges through to residential park homes, but undoubtedly the star attractions will be a brand-new luxury lodge – the Inspiration, an update to the ever-popular Kingfisher, and a bespoke lodge demonstrating the Omar Group’s diverse bespoke potential.

Here’s a bit more about the holiday homes, luxury lodges and park homes to be on display:

New BS 3632 residential specification

The Cranleigh is one of two Regal models now built to BS 3632 residential specification as standard, offering better insulation and energy efficiency to help you stay cosy and comfortable whatever the temperature outside. With its unique design, feature fire and split-level floor, it’s a real eye-catcher!

New BS 3632 residential specification

Another popular model thanks to its chic contemporary design, the Artisan has also moved to a BS 3632 residential specification as standard, offering that home away from home feel at any time of year. A memorable model that will never date, it’s a great option for those looking to invest in something a little special to enjoy for years to come.

2024 model

The Charmouth is a surprisingly affordable all-rounder, also now available in BS 3632 in a 42′ x 14′ footprint with two or three bedrooms. The model on display will be built to EN 1647 specification in a 42′ x 13′ footprint and with 2 bedrooms. It will be sporting design refreshes which have given focus to a botanical theme, bang on trend ready for 2024!

2024 model

The Hemsworth has a unique, striking layout and design theme, with solid blocks of colour in the teal feature walls, combined with dusky hues in the soft furnishings. Perfect as a base model, you can add extra elements to personalise it or buy it as a core model to keep the price down, the choice is yours!

2024 model

The Retreat is a great option for both the holiday home ownership and hire fleet market as it packs a punch in the design stakes, feeling far more expensive than it actually is. A 28’ x 12’ two bedroomed option has been added to the options, along with feature floors in the bathroom an en-suite to add to the allure, and a pre-galvanised chassis comes as standard.  The model on display will be built to a 38′ x12′ footprint.

New interior design scheme

The Kingfisher is an iconic lodge, and still one of the most popular lodges seen out on parks around the UK.  With a brand-new interior design scheme being launched at Harrogate, this will give buyers looking for their next show lodge the perfect target. The layout remains the same, but it will look and feel quite different, with a stylish new contemporary theme. Think contrasting panels and trim, geometric shapes and a seamlessly smooth and calming atmosphere, and you have the new Kingfisher in a nutshell!  

Letting lodge

The Woodbury has been a hugely popular model for park groups looking for fleet solutions, and, following in the footsteps of the new Woodland and Waterside versions, a new Highland Woodbury will be on display.  Designed to be pet-friendly to appeal to all potential guests and their owners, this model is designed to be as practical as it is pretty, with easy-clean elements so everyone can relax knowing it will spring back as fresh as a daisy for the next occupants!

A contemporary bespoke lodge example

Built for The Barns at Blackwater Meadow, Ellesmere, this bespoke lodge example combines contemporary designs with architectural features, leaning towards inside-outside living with a spacious, covered terrace and large patio.  With its split-level roofline outside, and vaulted ceilings within, it is as modern and contemporary inside as it is outside, with plenty of luxurious features built in.

New model

Firmly under wraps until the show, the Inspiration will be launched as part of the Wessex range, aimed at the luxury end of the market; it will be on display at Omar’s Brandon showground after the show. All we can say is that it is quite different from any other lodge, and is definitely going to feel very special – we can’t wait to reveal it at the show!

New 2023 model

The Ikon will be back on show after launching at the World of Park and Leisure Homes earlier this year with a new interior design theme. As always, this model has to be bang-on-trend, so it’s been dressed in beautiful floral fabrics contrasting with black detailing throughout, giving the theme a slight oriental vibe in the bedrooms, and delivering a crisp, fresh, Ideal Home feel in the living areas.

New 2023 model

The Vision is another high-performing model from a sales perspective, and it’s had a major uplift this year making it even more tempting than the original. The design team has given it a striking new feel with light blue added as a keynote colour to the window dressings and soft furnishings.  Feature walls behind the shelving in the lounge add symmetry and appeal, appearing again in the master bedroom to add additional ‘wow’ factor.


The Wessex Canford is a classic residential model, always drawing attention with each new refresh. This gorgeous home has always been impossible not to love, so for those looking for a residential home with more appeal than most, it’s one not to be missed.  Look out for a change to the kitchen colour scheme, as it’s set to make it’s appeal wider than ever!
