Tara White says the park is at full tilt on new projects during closure

In the same annual poll, readers also named Old Oaks as Britain’s best park for enjoying adults-only stays which are free from the patter of tiny feet.

And completing the hat trick of honours, the publication presented the park with its national award for the Best Green Site in the UK for eco-friendly holidays.

Old Oaks has been in the same family’s ownership for over 30 years, and is managed by family members Tara White and her husband James.

As well as touring pitches, the park provides a range of exciting glamping options including luxurious fully-equipped mini cedar lodges, shepherds huts and cosy camping cabins.

According to a number of new projects started earlier in the year:

“We’ve completed a wheelchair-friendly path around our woodland walk and half-acre lake, and upgrading twelve of the fishing platforms,” she said.

“Our glamping pods now have brick-built fire pits, and we’re close to choose their preferred pitch from our website.

“We’re also keeping our grounds wildlife-friendly by putting in extra hedgehog houses and seeding new wildflower areas to provide vital foraging for honey bees and butterflies.

“These new awards are a fantastic honour, especially as they have resulted from votes by our custo welcome them back again!” added Tara.

Not that the Old Oaks is any stranger to accolades for it already holds the prestigious AA Platinum Award, and the highly-regarded five-star grading from Visit England.

It is also a member of the Best of British group of top-rated independent parks with verified quality standards. There is more about the Old Oaks on its website at
