Parkdean Resorts is the UK’s largest operator of caravan, lodge, cabin, glamping and camping holiday resorts, and was named Best UK Family Holiday Company 2019 at the British Travel Awards, the UK’s biggest opinion poll for travel and tourism in the country. The company’s most recent financial results showed like-for-like revenue for 2019 at Parkdean Resorts was up 5% to £453.2million, and this healthy performance has enabled the company to invest £80million back into the business to stimulate future growth.
Steve Richards, Chief Executive of Parkdean Resorts, said:
“We’ve made great progress in the last year and our success is down to the passion of our teams in helping to deliver great holiday experiences for our customers. We want to build on momentum in 2020, so we’re on the lookout for vibrant people to join our teams at our Norfolk parks.”
The investment in the two parks is part of the company’s largest ever annual investment in its estate, to deliver holiday parks that provide inter-generational family fun and freedom for its holiday homeowners and holiday guests. In total, £5.8M will be invested in 2020 in a pilot ‘parks of the future’ initiative in four locations to create state-of-the-art amenities including accommodation, park facilities and kids’ activity-based entertainment such as the Bear Grylls Survival Academy. Parkdean is also investing more than £13million to provide free high-speed Wi-Fi in every caravan and lodge across all 67 of its parks across Great Britain – an industry first.
