Park Holidays UK is promising an air of celebration across all of its parks this summer as it marks 25 years of providing happy holiday memories.
These currently include short breaks from £69.00 – a price not wildly different from holiday costs in 1989 when the company opened its first park in Rye, East Sussex.
By contrast, most other prices since then have soared – for 25 years ago, a litre of petrol cost just 50 pence, a pint of beer about the same, and the average house price was £36,000.
Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish says that his group has helped to create a present-day golden age of low-cost park holidays by raising standards and increasing visitor numbers.
The Southern England company today owns 23 high quality holiday parks in seaside locations from Devon in the West to Suffolk in the east – and plans to continue expanding.
The formula of providing superior accommodation and leisure facilities, says Tony, has broadened considerably the appeal of park holidays, so enabling prices to be kept down.
And it’s not only families renting holiday homes who have benefitted. Demand from buyers of caravan holiday homes, Tony reports, has also increased dramatically over the years.
This has strengthened the group’s buying power, and fully furnished and equipped holiday homes made specifically for Park Holidays UK today start from just £6,995.00.
As part of celebrations for its quarter-century milestone, the company has this month declared that it will pay buyers’ 2014 pitch fees on many of its currently available models.
According to Tony Clish, Park Holidays UK has been one of the principal forces for transforming the image of Britain’s holiday parks industry:
“Our philosophy from the start was to invest substantially in our parks, providing the best possible accommodation, leisure opportunities and entertainment almost regardless of cost.
“We believed this would help expand dramatically the appeal of our product – and as each newly acquired park in turn proved that point, Park Holidays UK continued to grow.
“The group’s commitment to fair pricing and first-class surroundings is still the same today, and I’m certain that there are still many chapters of our success story yet to be written!” added Tony.
