2017 prices, the sun and a twist on Portland
Wow where have 2 months gone, we have been so busy with what I am about to tell you that both myself and the marketing team have forgotten to write a blog, sorry!
During June the parks were very busy and many enjoyed watching the football and Wimbledon in Marin’s, it’s just a shame England let us down again but well done Wales! We were pleased to welcome back the Broadchurch film crew to West Bay over the last few weeks, they have just finished but it has added a little excitement to the area with the thought of Broadchurch series 3 airing in 2017. We just loved seeing our local area on TV and it has brought a lot of Tourism to the area both with holidays and day trips, known locally as the ‘Broadchurch effect’.
In the last week of June we took delivery of Portland Lodge a 40×20 Willerby Caravan Holiday Home. We just had to order one with a name like Portland and it is now fully sited at Golden Cap Holiday Park and up for sale. Take a look here! I am pleased to see Golden Cap slowly evolving and this will be the second lodge for sale and we have four available for hire. Please note the image below is a library image.
Also at Golden Cap during June we extended the shop, the slow change in customers’ requirements and requests has meant we identified a need for a food and drink offering as well as the Grocery essentials our park shops provide. We will never be able to be a supermarket and why would we want to be with four chain supermarkets in Bridport but our offering, and I am sure you will agree, matches the needs of Seatown. The newly styled Seatown Stores as shown below now sells, Pizza, Sandwiches, Pies, Slush Puppies, Milkshakes, Dorset Tea and lovely coffee to name just a few.
We are excited to see the opening of Big Berries Summer Camping Field this coming Friday at Golden Cap. The team have been busy cutting the grass, getting the signs up and the toilet block ready to open. The weather is perfect for it and we are looking forward to letting visitors know about the brand new toilet block that is being built over the coming winter, ready for the 2017 Big Berries opening dates.
Now, where have the team and I spent a lot of our time in June, well the link below will show you all, we have researched, put together and released our 2017 prices both online and through the bookings office (01308 426947). This is the earliest we have done this in WDLH history and we already have a flurry of bookings coming in for 2017, not forgetting the ever more popular winter breaks in our Lodges and Apartments at Highlands and Golden Cap which are available all year round.
Although a short blog I am sure you can see WDLH is always developing and I will not leave such a long gap until next time.
