Big investment at Norfolk touring parks


Owner Blue Sky Leisure has spent £500,000 improving and adding to the luxury accommodation on offer at Kelling, including the replacement of 15 top-of-the-range ‘Nightjar’ holiday homes.

A further £300,000 has been spent refurbishing the park’s Health and Fitness Club, including its gym, reception area and female and disabled changing facilities. Club members and holidaymakers can now make use of new, state-of-the-art cardio vascular equipment, including treadmills, rowers, X-trainers, cycling machines and a Watt bike (as used by the British cycling team).  Improvements have also been made to the gym’s range of resistance equipment.

Kelling’s touring facilities for motorhomes have also been enhanced with 10 new hard-standing, fully-serviced pitches providing all-year-round, all-weather access to the ever popular natural location, which was crowned Holiday Park of the Year at the EDP Tourism Awards in November.

Improvements totaling £150,000 at Woodhill Park, in East Runton, included a much-needed upgrade to the electrical supply feeding the park, as well as better broadband and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing guests to access the internet from anywhere on park.

Blue Sky Leisure director, Michael Timewell, said, “All the improvements we’ve made at Kelling and Woodhill have been prompted by customer comments and carried through because we want to provide our customers with the best possible on-park experience.” 

Kelling Heath Holiday Park reopens to 2016 holidaymakers on February 12, while Woodhill Park reopens on March 1. The Health and Fitness Club reopened on January 18.  Kelling’s EDP Tourism Awards success was not the only accolade the parks picked up last year. Woodhill received a Platinum award from the National Loo of the Year Competition for its toilet washroom facilities, while both parks have won gold in the Green Tourism Business Scheme and gold in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards.
