Parkdean Resorts has announced a £1.7 million investment for four Isle of Wight holiday parks ahead of the 2021 season.
The spend, to install new caravans and luxury lodges, is part of a £70 million investment in its business nationwide – and will give a significant boost for tourism on the Isle of Wight.
Parkdean Resorts operates four parks on the Isle of Wight – Landguard and Lower Hyde, both in Shanklin, Nodes Point, near St Helens, and Thorness Bay, near Cowes.
As part of the investment, there will be two stylish new caravans at Landguard, three high-quality caravans at Lower Hyde, one new extra-wide caravan at Thorness Bay, and a luxury lodge with a private veranda at Nodes Point. In addition, 59 upgraded caravans are being introduced to replace the existing fleet across the Island.
Steve Richards, Chief Executive of Parkdean Resorts, said:
“Despite the most challenging of years, we’re continuing to invest in our parks, creating an even better experience for holidaymakers and holiday homeowners in 2021. With industry-leading COVID-safe standards, we’re looking forward to welcoming people back safely, to enjoy everything our parks, and the surrounding areas, have to offer. We know how reliant the local economy is on tourism, and we’re confident that we can help the region recover by welcoming holidaymakers to enjoy a well-deserved staycation on the Isle of Wight.”
Across the Isle of Wight, Parkdean Resorts employs 420 staff in season, and the parks are currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles across sales, food and beverage, and housekeeping. Anybody interested in applying for a job should visit Parkdean’s jobs website to view all vacancies.
