With last year's UK staycation boom continuing into 2018 Parkdean Resorts are planning on adding 800 brand new caravans and holiday lodges throughout the year as they invest an estimated £42 million.
The Gosforth based company intend on spending around £13m on the 800 new caravans to meet the huge surge in demand from both foreign and domestic holiday makers. To ensure that the company meets the needs of every customer they will be adding a wide range of holiday homes from 1 bed to 4 bed caravans. Some of which will have ensuite bathroom, large living rooms and special entertainment units.
To keep in touch with the ever evolving UK holiday market the company will be adding 4 bed lodges to their sites. They will be spending around £1.3m on 20 lodges across their sites. To ensure visitors get luxury stays the lodges will include patio doors, large bathrooms and good size dining rooms to ensure that there is enough leisure space for family and friends.
Chief Executive of Parkdean, John Waterworth, said: "This year our £42m investment plans really show our commitment to continually developing our parks, and creating the best possible holidaymaker and owner experiences. "In 2018 we have a focus on bringing in new caravans and lodges to follow the growth in consumer demand. We also regularly collect guest feedback, and from this made the decision to introduce more one-and four-bedroom models.
"As we look ahead to peak season, work is under way at the majority of our parks to boost their offering, making for an even more enjoyable time while staying with us. We hope this is well received by our customers, and look forward to welcoming them throughout the course of the year."
Parkdean are also investing heavily in the refurbishment of their sites. The sites will get a makeover as well as the existing caravans and other holiday accommodation. Too often you will see somes companies focus on a small handful of sites and neglect the rest or their network, but with such a huge investment Parkdean are covering pretty much all of their bases.
Parkdean have been investing a lot recently, in 2017 the company invested £50m bringing the total investment amount to £130m since 2016.
Parkdean have 72 parks across the UK with a ride range of features and entertainment for the whole family. Following their recent investment they are a must visit for 2018.
