MP’S VOTE OF CONFIDENCE IN CORNWALL PARK

186a07d1-bc86-499b-ad29-c13560793285

MP Dan Rogerson swapped Parliament for an award-winning holiday park in Padstow recently in support of a nationwide tourism initiative.

 
The North Cornwall MP was at the award-winning Mother Ivey's Bay Holiday Park for the start of English Tourism Week.

The event is designed to put the spotlight on England's tourism industry and the huge contribution it makes to sustaining local businesses and employment.

MP Dan Rogerson swapped Parliament for an award-winning holiday park in Padstow last weekend in support of a nationwide tourism initiative

Mr Rogerson toured the beachside park with its second generation owners Patrick and Margaret Langmaid whose family has owned Mother Ivey's for more than 25 years.

It provides plots for 230 luxury caravan holiday homes, both privately owned and available to hire, plus pitches for tourer and campers.

The MP discovered that over 80 percent of the visitors to Mother Ivey’s are regular repeat customers, and another 10 percent are recommended by previous guests.

One reason for that must be that Mother Ivey's has been presented with the prestigious Bellamy Conservation Award at its top gold level every year since 1999.

Future plans include a £2.5 million scheme to develop a small, high-quality ‘capsule’ holiday park in nearby Constantine Bay which would be open year-round.
