Parkdean Resorts reveals another bumper year of investment!

from Parkdean Resorts:


LEADING holiday park operator Parkdean Resorts has set out investment plans of £2.1m across its collection of parks on the Isle of Wight for the 2019 holiday season.

With a primary focus on new accommodation, over £1.2m will bring a mix of 49 new lodges and caravans to the four parks on the island.

The work comes as part of a wider investment of £40.7M across the company this year.

Overall, £22.5m will be spent enhancing the caravan and lodge offering which will see more than 760 new caravans introduced on parks and £4.4m worth of refurbishments take place, while £1.5m will allow for 18 new luxury lodges to be added across eight locations.

A further £9.5m will be invested to strengthen park infrastructure and £1.8m will see retail developments on parks UK-wide.

In an innovative move for the sector, 53 one-bedroom caravans will be launched across 12 parks including Lower Hyde on the Isle of Wight, specifically designed for couples and including pet friendly accommodation – a customer profile that Parkdean Resorts has identified as an area it is keen to develop.

Chief executive John Waterworth said:

“We have lots of people that come along in twos on holiday so we will be introducing one-bedroom caravans for the first time with young couples, empty nesters and retired people in mind.”

Due to the increasing demand for lodge holidays, lodges will be expanded across parks – particularly those with four bedrooms. Hot tubs have also proved popular and 16 will be added to a number of existing models in key lodge destinations across the UK.

Opening up even more choice for ownership opportunities, new caravans and lodges have been introduced with a higher specification. Models from popular brands such as Victory Leisure Homes and Carnaby Caravans are now available at many ownership parks for the first time.

Upgrades to retail and leisure facilities include some exciting developments comprising new play area equipment as a result of a £350k investment.

John Waterworth continued:

“It is with great pride that we announce a further significant investment across our parks this year, ahead of the 2019 season. Work is already underway to bring in these changes to accommodation, retail, entertainment and many other elements that make up the Parkdean Resorts experience, which we continue to build upon while listening to customer feedback and reacting to market demand.

“We’re looking forward to hearing how our holidaymakers and holiday home owners receive the enhancements we’re making.”

A total of 27 holiday parks are preparing to welcome 2019’s first holidaymakers for February half-term, including Nodes Point on the Isle of Wight.
