Bridge Leisure Management Acquire 3 More Sites

After an £11million investment Bridge Leisure Management (BLM) have acquired three new sites for holiday parks.

Three new parks are located in Ashbourne Heights on the edge of the Peak District in Derbyshire; Hedley Wood near Bude on the Devon and Cornwall border, and Hengar Manor in Bodmin on the North Cornwall coast. With such rapid growth the group now owns and operates eight holiday parks across the UK. The other sites owned by BLM are located in the South West, Yorkshire, Ayrshire and Moray.

These new acquisitions come following a reported 2016 turn over of £21.4million. That is a whopping 29% increase on their previous year. And if their 2017 is anything to go by, sales on holiday homes are already up by 15%, the sky's the limit for this company.

Andrew Howe (pictured below), CEO of Bridge Leisure said: "These latest acquisitions are important steps in Bridge Leisure's growth. We have shown with past deals that we can add significant value to new parks by building pitches, investing in infrastructure and improving facilities to enhance the customer experience and create new jobs.

"We believe that those holiday companies offering the highest standards for customers will prosper. Each of our three new parks is superbly well run and among the very best in their local area, so we are incredibly excited about being able to support their ongoing success.

"Our plan is to maintain growth through further developments to our existing parks and by undertaking further acquisitions of holiday parks across the UK."

Bridge Leisure Management have come a very long way over the past decade. They started out as a management support company for holiday and leisure parks in 2008. Since then they've had a steady growth. Then came a management buyout which allowed the company to move into a position where they could actually acquire sites and parks. Such the the new site pictured below.

The Sunday Times named then, in their annual Virgin Fast Track 100, the UK's fastest growing companies for 2014. And this year they made the list for The Sunday Times top 100 companies to work for.

The company have a clear plan for the future and are investing wisely to ensure a high quality of holiday sites for the UK. With such successful growth in the industry I look forward to seeing their next stage in development. What this space!
