Park Holidays UK welcomes its new Suffolk seaside star
PARK HOLIDAYS UK says it is “proud and delighted” to have become the new owners of a popular north Suffolk holiday park with beach access for seaside-loving families.
The acquisition of Pakefield Holiday Park near Lowestoft – formerly Pakefield Caravan Park – brings to five the number of coastal parks owned by Park Holidays UK in Suffolk.
Following other recent acquisitions, the fast-expanding group now has 33 parks in its portfolio.
Previously privately owned, Pakefield Holiday Park has almost 400 pitches for caravan holiday homes and guests bringing their own motorhome or touring caravan.
Its facilities include a popular clubhouse which stages professional entertainment, a heated outdoor pool, children’s activities, and watersports equipment hire.
Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish said that the group was very proud to be able to offer guests a fifth Suffolk destination to come on holiday or own a leisure home.
“Pakefield Holiday Park is unquestionably a star choice for coast and countryside connoisseurs, and we’re delighted to have this first-class business on board,” he said.
“There’s a superb selection of nearby Blue Flag beaches, and inland woodlands and heaths as well as the delightful Norfolk Broads, making it a great option for families.
“Most crucially, though, is the fact that the previous owners have maintained extremely high standards, and have evolved the park over the years to meet rising customer expectations.
“In fact, most guests are either repeat visitors or coming as a result of a personal recommendation.
“We are very grateful to Pakefield’s previous owner, Peter Brewer and his family, for building a strong and forward-looking business which has won such loyalty.
“Park Holidays UK will now be looking to continue building on the park’s success, and further enhancing its well-deserved reputation for delivering a first-class experience,” said Mr Clish.
He added that his group is now drawing up investment plans for Pakefield Holiday Park, and that new developments on the site could begin “within weeks”.
Park Holidays UK recently announced its intention to invest more than £20 million in its parks over the coming months, and reported that bookings for 2021 were the highest in its 30-year history.
Its other four Suffolk parks are in Saxmundham (Carlton Meres Holiday Park), Felixstowe (Felixstowe Beach Holiday Park and Suffolk Sands Holiday Park), and Lowestoft (Broadland Sands Holiday Park).
