Sandylands Holiday Park is set for major investment.

Parkdean Resorts, the UK’s largest holiday park operator has announced that they plan to spend £300,000 to upgrade the site.

Upgrades will include 15 new caravans to replace their old fleet at the popular holiday destination, as part of an £80million investment in its business across Britain.

Steve Richards, Chief Executive of Parkdean Resorts, said:

“We’ve made great progress in the last year and our success is down to the passion of our teams in helping to deliver great holiday experiences for our customers. We want to build on momentum in 2020, so we’re on the lookout for vibrant people to join our teams at our Scottish parks.”

Sandylands Holiday Park employs almost 100 staff in season, and the Park is currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles across sales, food and beverage, and housekeeping.

The company’s most recent financial results showed like-for-like revenue for 2019 at Parkdean Resorts was up 5 per cent to £453.2million, and this healthy performance has enabled the company to invest £80million back into the business to stimulate future growth.

The investment in Sandylands Holiday Park is part of the company’s largest ever annual investment in its estate. In total, £5.8M will be invested in 2020 in a pilot ‘parks of the future’ initiative in four locations to create state-of-the-art amenities including accommodation, park facilities and kids’ activity-based entertainment such as the Bear Grylls Survival Academy. Parkdean is also investing more than £13million to provide free high-speed Wi-Fi in every caravan and lodge across all 67 of its parks across Great Britain.
