Expanding southern England park group Shorefield Holidays has made another addition to its portfolio after acquiring Wilksworth Caravan Park in Dorset.

It brings to eight the number of top-rated parks in membership of the family-owned business which is this year marking its 60th anniversary.

Located near Wimborne Minster, multi-award Wilksworth Caravan Park provides both luxury holiday homes to own, and pitches for motorhomes, touring caravans and tents.

Within its picturesque grounds is an historic Grade II listed building once owned by Henry VIII, and the park’s raft of guest facilities include a heated outdoor pool.

Five-star surroundings are provided for holiday home owners

Open 10.5 months of the year, Wilksworth Caravan Park also provides a full size tennis court, a popular bar and restaurant, and children’s play areas.

Surrounded by tranquil countryside, the five-star park is just a short drive away from the New Forest and coastal destinations such as Sandbanks.

Simon Pollock, chairman and managing director of Shorefield Holidays, said his company was immensely proud to be welcoming Wilksworth Caravan Park into ownership:

“All of our parks in Dorset and Hampshire are in the heart of some of Britain’s most beautiful and idyllic locations, and Wilksworth is no exception,” he said.

“This acquisition is part of our strategy for growth, and reflects the significant rise in popularity of staycations as people realise they don’t need to go abroad to experience amazing holidays.

“We have also seen increasing numbers of families buying holiday homes, both as a way of making the most of their leisure, and spending quality time with family and friends.

“We are looking forward to welcoming all of Wilksworth’s past, current and future guests into the Shorefield Holidays family for 2018 and beyond,” said Simon.
