Peter Bull Holiday Resorts Ltd is a new Holiday Park operator, currently with three parks in Cornwall in the UK. Our parks offer self-catering caravan, glamping, camping, and touring holidays, as well as holiday homes for ownership.Peter Bull is the successful entrepreneur behind many holiday parks, having co-founded and then sold the 24 parks that still make up Park Holidays UK Ltd today.
The new company which bears his name, was established in December 2013, bringing together a number of professionals with extensive experience in the UK Holiday Park industry. In February 2014, our first two parks – Newquay View Resort and Bude Holiday Resort – were acquired from previous owners. Within just 3 months, large investments were made into their facilities, with new holiday home accommodation and many improvements to the buildings, injecting a new lease of life into both parks. In March 2015 the company took over a third park called Widemouth Fields, close to Widemouth Bay and the seaside town of Bude. This smaller park has also quickly benefited from new static bases, a new touring field and will continue to do so as more money is invested into developing the site.
Improvements at Newquay for 2016 included new touring park showers and toilets, new indoor pool changing rooms, sauna, steam room, an endless pool, a fitness academy, bistro/cafe, beer garden, spa and massage, nail bar and many others. New at Widemouth in 2016 were glamping pods, a new touring park and a small holiday home hire fleet.
Our biggest investment for 2017 follows the granting of planning permission at Bude for a new touring park and 99 new static pitches. The 100 ‘super pitches’ have gravel hardstanding, are accessed along proper roadways and paths with parking spaces. Each pitch is fully serviced with 16 amp electricity, fresh water connection, grey and brown water disposal, Wi-Fi and piped TV. The park will also have a new amenity building, reception and a new outdoor pool. New in 2017 at Widemouth and Newquay are the amazing new S-Pods by Swift, the perfect modern alternative to camping. Widemouth now has a hire fleet of five modern centrally heated and double glazed holiday homes, as well as the seven pods.
Plans submitted for Newquay View include changing the use of the sports field to provide 85 new ‘super pitches’ and a state of the art green roofed amenity building with underfloor central heating. The flushing toilets are sensor actuated with hand basins & showers, two totally private cubicles each containing a toilet, wash basin & shower, fully fitted out disabled wet room, launderette including washers, dryers, ironing board & hand washing facilities, washing up room, dog wash room, Elson point and wet suit drying area.
Key to our success are the many businesses that operate as concessions on our parks or supply us directly, such as Blue Surf School, Academy Fitness and many others. Also we have the full support of Lloyd’s Bank and Black Horse Leisure.
Peter Bull Resorts Ltd has a five year investment plan, with a vision to constantly improve our parks, whilst also acquiring additional ones. As we give more and more parks the opportunity to shine again, we will continue to deliver a fresh, customer-focused approach to the Holiday Parks sector.
