Verdant Leisure Reports Surge in Caravan and Lodge Sales

Holiday home sales in Scotland rise significantly year on year

 
PRLog - Apr. 30, 2012 - Sales of luxury lodges and static caravans at Verdant Leisure’s holiday parks in Ayrshire, Berwickshire, East Lothian and Northumberland are significantly up year on year indicating the trend for stay at home holidays is as strong as ever.  The niche leisure park operator which owns Viewfield Manor in Ayrshire, Thurston Manor in East Lothian, Pease Bay in Berwickshire and Riverside Country Park in Northumberland has recorded a robust start to the season despite poor weather conditions over the Easter break.

The upturn in holiday home sales is matched by a strong performance in the company’s holiday bookings business.  New marketing initiatives, including an Olympic offer of 20.12% discount until June and special deals for touring caravans, are proving popular in attracting new business across all the parks.  

Commenting on the Easter trading results chief executive Graham Hodgson said;

“We are very upbeat about our better than expected start to the season given the challenging economic and meteorological conditions.  Where we are winning is that our parks are all in beautiful locations and we are beginning to see the benefit of our investment in marketing, improving services and management of the estates.”

Verdant Leisure has invested heavily in improving facilities at its parks and is planning further £1 million investment in further development across the estate in the coming year.
