Haven has bought a new holiday park – Thornwick Bay in Flamborough near Bridlington, this adds to the parks they already own in Yorkshire: Primrose Valley, Reighton Sands and Blue Dolphin holiday parks plus Far Grange for caravan ownership.
The park will have over 1,000 new pitches and redeveloped owners lounge to enjoy. There will also be a £10million investment programme over the winter months including a new swimming pool, cafe bar, entertainment venue, an activity barn, play parks and an owner’s lounge with its own cafe bar for those who own their own caravans on the park.
All the developments will take inspiration from its stunning location just minutes from Flamborough Head with its impressive 80m high cliffs which are home to many sea bird breeding colonies including Kittiwakes and gannets, the best time to see these is in April and May. There are two secluded bays perfect for sea fishing from the beach and spotting marine mammals such as Porpoise and Seals. Just along the coast at Bempton Cliffs is one of the best places in the UK for rock pooling.
Making the most of its natural surrounding the park lends itself to offering activities and entertainment that break away from the norm. The existing Haven Nature Rockz programme led by one of their Park Rangers Elliot Banks will be ramped up offering even more opportunities to get closer to nature with fossil casting, guided cave exploration and plenty of green open spaces for kids to run around. Families are encouraged to explore the local area and join in guided walks, hire a bike, Segways, Nordic walking, fishing in the well stocked lake, guided boat tours by the local fisherman or simply enjoy a stroll along the nature trail. There will also be archery, fencing and target shooting for everyone and mini versions for the toddlers.
The park has a relaxed environment with musical street theatre ‘Covent Garden’ style entertainment, an outdoor cinema and stories around the camp fire all aimed at offering families a taste of something a bit different. For those looking to step back in time they can look forward to seeing some medieval jousting during the summer holidays. The new Activity barn will offer pic ‘n’ paint and sand art.
