Cornwall’s planners have given the go-ahead for much needed improvements to be made at one of Bude’s best located holiday parks.
Plans approved by the Council have paved the way for a full upgrade of the popular touring park, which is set just back from the beautiful coastline. Improvements to the landscaping of touring caravan and camping pitches, together with new fully equipped amenity buildings, upgraded entrance and new reception facilities will provide the modern amenities that today’s visitors to Cornwall expect from their holidays.
Owners Peter Bull Resorts Ltd, who acquired the park at the end of the 2013 season, have already made substantial improvements to the holiday hire fleet of static caravans, the clubhouse, shop, café and introduced glamping pods. But facilities for campers and touring visitors can now be brought up to the latest standards with family showers, new drying and washing facilities for clothes and wetsuits, together with pitches that are fully serviced with electricity, water and sewerage. Currently around 50 customers enjoy siting their touring vehicles at the resort for the whole year and this is set to increase with the new facilities.
Peter Bull Resorts Ltd have also committed to repair the track leading to the upgraded entrance, which serves as the access from Bude, for the benefit of all users. The reconfiguration of Bude Holiday Resort will encourage sustainable tourism, extend the holiday seasons and further enhance Bude as a high quality holiday destination.
Managing Director Barry McGregor commented ‘These new facilities are much needed in the area and will be sought after both by existing and new customers. Our guests have been telling us, ever since we took over the park, that they want to see improvements to the amenity buildings. It has always been our intention to bring the park up to five-star standard and now we can realise that ambition. We have already had enquiries from another 40 touring caravan owners who wish to move here for next summer’s season which can only be good for tourism in the town.’
