The new owner of a caravan and motorhome park in Northumberland has revealed his plans to expand and bring extra tourism into the local area. Dennis Dunham paid around £3.6 million for the South Meadows Caravan Park in Belford and now the experienced caravan park manager will add an extra ten acres to the forty-acre site.
The extra space will allow another one-hundred pitches for mobile homes. However, Mr Dunham has confirmed that he does not plan to change things too much and wants to keep the park’s peaceful and serene style that was used by the former owner. Two years ago Mr Dunham sold two Scottish caravan parks that he had improved from three-star parks into five-star sites. South Meadows Caravan Park also has a large workshop where they can service & repair caravans and motorhomes. They are also registered to carry out repairs to mobile homes after the owners have a made a claim on their motorhome insurance policy.
Mr Dunham said: “We’ll certainly try to bring more tourism to Belford. The one-hundred extra spaces will bring another three-hundred people to the area at the weekend and they’ll certainly get around a few of the shops and pubs. The former owner developed the park to a very high standard and it has very good feedback from visitors and I want to keep these high standards. I will also be taking on extra staff that will be trained to the highest standards.”
The park is the perfect base for motorhome owners to explore Holy Island, the Farne Islands and the Scottish Borders. The nearby A1 is the main route to the famous market towns of Alnwick and Berwick-upon-Tweed. Spacious well planned grass pitches allow campers plenty of room with each one having its own electrical hook up.
