Park group rolls out 50-week welcome for Sussex owner

Park Holidays UK has scored another victory for holiday home owners by winning consent for extending the holiday year at two of its popular South Coast parks.

Coghurst Hall holiday park in Hastings, and nearby Beauport holiday park in St Leonards, will now remain open for 50 weeks of the year.

They join many of the other 23 holiday parks in the group for which Park Holidays UK has successfully applied for site licence extensions over the past year.

Previously with ten-month licences, which were increased to 11 months last year, the two East Sussex parks will now close for just two weeks each February for planned improvements.

Demand for holiday homes which can be visited almost anytime is constantly increasing, according to Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish:

“Part of the pleasure is in experiencing a region throughout the four seasons, and enjoying breaks at less busy times of the year when roads and attractions are quieter,” he said.

“But perhaps the biggest appeal of owning a holiday caravan or lodge on a park open for fifty weeks is that you can make your escapes anytime you choose.

“For people living busy lives, and perhaps wanting frequent battery re-charges with their family, that can come as a great bonus,” added Tony.

Coghurst Hall is set in hundreds of acres of historic woodland with an imposing 18th century manor house as its centrepiece, and facilities include a Romanesque leisure pool and spa bath.

It also has a magnificent and well-stocked fishing lake – one of three lakes in the grounds – which presents exciting challenges for anglers of all abilities.

Beauport similarly has a beautiful woodland setting with a heated lido pool and other leisure facilities which include a gymnasium and recently extended entertainments venue and clubhouse.

Both parks also stage professional cabarets every night in season, and provide good value restaurants and bars, plus activities and entertainment for children.

Tony Clish said he was delighted that many local authorities now saw extended seasons a win-win outcome by supporting local businesses and jobs through extra visitor spending.
