Geronimo! Parks create splash for water-fun fans

Park Holidays UK is making waves for holiday home owners this spring by sinking more than £5m intop-rated parks.

The splash is part of an even wider development programme across most of the group’s 26 holiday parks in southern England, aimed at creating world-class leisure opportunities.

But despite the scale of the investment, says Park Holidays UK, the owners of holiday caravans and lodges on its parks won’t have to enjoy the new facilities.

At Seawick Holiday Park in Clacton, the curtain has already been lifted on a new £3m complex boasting a new pool and high-tech entertainment centre.

Similar developments will shortly be ready ton Vale Holiday Park near Margate in Kent, and at Harts Holiday Park overlooking Kent’s famous Isle of Sheppey.

Meanwhile, other parks in the group have also seen ambitious refurbishments and additions to their leisure facilities which will benefit owners this year.

Demand for new and pre-owned holiday homes is currently being fuelled by one of the largest pre-season sales it has ever staged, says Park Holidays UK.

Discounts of up to £5,000 on hundreds of models are being coupled with an offer of a year completely free of pitch fees for families buying before the end of March.

In addition, Park Holidays UK will also pick up the tab on owners’ gas bills of up to £500, and all water rates.

The savings will, say the company, add up to thousands of pounds for every single purchaser.

Main focus for the deals are brand new 2016 holiday homes, fully equipped and furnished to a high specification, and available for immediate siting.

Models are being offered at all of Park Holidays UK’s coastal parks, most of which now remain open for up to 50 weeks of the year for holiday homes owners.

It means that families will be able to make the most of their leisure time by enjoying short breaks and longer stays right throughout the four seasons.

Park Holidays UK says that its current deals can also be taken alongside special finance options now available, and the group’s guaranteed income scheme for families choosing to sub-let.
