New venture on fifth anniversary

A COMPANY that owns four South Lakeland tourist attractions has celebrated five years in business.

Since it re-launched and re-branded itself in 2006, South Lakeland Parks has become one of the region’s biggest holiday companies, bringing in 18,000 tourists each year to its nine parks across the North West.

The company owns four parks in the South Lakes area – Fallbarrow, White Cross Bay, Limefitt and Gatebeck.

In a few weeks, South Lakeland Parks will launch its latest venture, one of the UK’s most prestigious holiday lodge developments at Fallbarrow near Bowness, offering luxury lodges starting from £350,000.

South Lakeland Parks will celebrate its fifth anniversary this summer.

Since its launch in 2006 the company has invested £12.5m into its facilities, ranging from a brand new bar, restaurant and outdoor games area at White Cross Bay to a total of 237 new pitches for caravans and lodges across many of its parks.

The company has also invested heavily in children’s play areas across its biggest parks.

The Fallbarrow park is set to open to the public next Saturday.

Nigel Wimpenny, managing director of South Lakeland Parks, said: “We have invested a lot of time in researching our options for this site so we could be sure of creating a development that appeals to guests of the future.

“Fallbarrow already offers a high level of accommodation and facilities, but these new lodges are like nothing that has even been seen before.

“Each lodge will have a choice of fixtures, fittings and facilities. Certain elements such as Wi-Fi will come as standard but additional extras such as computerised curtains, mood lighting and intelligent heating will also be available, plus owners can tailor the interior of the lodge to suit their needs and style.

“It’s an exciting prospect for buyers to have a completely unique holiday home. The new development has been approved by the Lake District National Park Authority and will be the last large scale development permitted along the shores of Windermere.”

South Lakeland Parks has also been involved with charities and in December, raised £50,000 for the Nurture Lakeland Charity to support tourism projects throughout Cumbria.
