New holiday homes a “game-changer” at family’s Yorks park

New holiday homes at Wayside Holiday Park look certain to find eager buyers says owner Mark Goodson

PLANNING CONSENT for a “game-changing” new development has been given to a family’s award-winning holiday park in the heart of the North Yorkshire Moors.

Wayside Holiday Park has received the green light from Ryedale District Council to create 13 new pitches for luxury holiday caravans and lodges in the centre of the park.

The £200,000 state-of-the-art development means the end of seasonal touring caravans on site – and a new opportunity for families to own a holiday home in Wayside’s tranquil surroundings.

Business owner Mark Goodson said this was a “transformational move” raising even higher the quality bar at the well-regarded park.

“This is a crucially important development for us, and we are grateful to Ryedale District Council’s planners for giving us the go-ahead,” said Mark.

“We are confident that the demand for our new pitches is there, given the staycation boom and the success of our new Lakes development at Wayside where 36 out of 37 lodges have found buyers.”

Work has now begun on the new development at the park, and is scheduled to be completed by August this year when the park opens for the new season.

Mark says he is looking forward to an enjoyable and productive 2022 following a difficult 20 months as the pandemic disrupted the park’s supply chain and made it difficult to plan ahead.

Despite these challenges, Wayside – which is located near the village of Wrelton between Kirkbymoorside and Pickering – has managed to flourish.

“We believe that the peace, beauty and serenity here are the ideal antidotes to the stresses of recent times, and we can offer a place to spend quality time,” said Mark.

“If anyone is thinking about buying a holiday home this year, now is the time to look as growing demand is likely to increase the pressure on available stock.”

Wayside is based in the North York Moors National Park with its superb walking opportunities, and within easy reach of Yorkshire’s breath-taking coastline and historic market towns.

The five-star park is a holder of the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award in recognition of its many enterprising initiatives to protect the natural world.
