Caravan enthusiasts will soon be able to enjoy fantastic views over the south bank of the Humber and Lincolnshire Wolds, it has been revealed.

According to the Grimsby Telegraph, North East Lincolnshire Council has approved plans for a new caravan park in the area.

The project would see a holiday site and tea rooms built at Ashby-cum-Fenby, which will attract thousands of visitors to the area, the newspaper claimed.

A viewpoint and picnic area will also be created next to the tearooms, which will be constructed of timber and feature a rainwater recycling system designed to make the venue more eco-friendly.

Meanwhile, the local authority has also approved a separate plan for 12 touring caravan pitches close to ten existing holiday lodges in the area.

In other news, recently revealed that caravanning and camping is now 78 per cent more popular than holidaying in Spain.
