PARKS ‘FLOOD FREE AND FILLING FAST’ FOR NEW SEASON

5155942d-50c6-40f8-890a-201dd5ab5198

It will be ‘business as usual’ at the 23 parks operated by Park Holidays UK when they re-open this month. And that is despite many being located in areas worst hit by winter's savage storms.


Guests, they say, are unlikely to find any trace of the batterings received from the weather which caused millions of pounds worth of damage to other parks in Britain.

Existing flood defences and the adoption of measures drawn up with the Environment Agency helped minimise the impact of storms on the chain.

The company's parks are all based on the coast across Devon and southern and eastern England where some of the strongest winds, highest tides and most persistent downpours were measured.

‘Our physical sea defences held back the worst of the flooding and, as a result, only a few parks experienced a small amount of standing water in January,’ said a spokesman.

Despite the weather, bookings received in January and February were the highest in the company’s 25-year history.
‘Parks are flood free and filling fast for the new season,’ he added.

Special offers include March prices from £59 per family, and £25 worth of free food and drink vouchers for certain four-night bookings from Monday to Friday.
