Two Chimneys to become Birchington Vale Holiday Park following acquisition by holiday park company
Park Holidays UK has announced its acquisition of Two Chimneys Holiday Park in the seaside village of Birchington-on-Sea near Margate in Kent.
Two Chimneys is one of the largest holiday parks on the Kent coast with 230 touring pitches and around 300 privately caravan holiday homes.
The acquisition brings the number of holiday parks within the Park Holidays Group to 25, all located in Southern England from Devon in the west to Suffolk in the east.
Already boasting a top five-star tourist board grading, Two Chimneys will now benefit from further substantial investment by the company in its holiday facilities.
It will also be re-christened Birchington Vale Holiday Park to reflect its location in 100 acres of tranquil North Kent countryside.
The village of Birchington is set alongside four picturesque sandy bays, all easily accessed from the park and providing activities such as sailing and windsurfing.
Tony Clish, director of Park Holidays UK, said that the park was a strategic and important addition to the company's existing parks portfolio: "This has been an extremely successful year for our group with an unprecedented number of holiday home sales and lettings."
"Birchington Vale will now allow us to widen even further in 2016 the options available to holidaymakers and holiday home buyers, as well as to touring guests.
"The park has an excellent reputation, and has been very sympathetically developed by its previous owners, the Godden family, to appeal to a quality-conscious family market.
"It will now benefit from the management and marketing input of Park Holidays UK, and from our exciting investment plans to raise the quality bar even higher," added Clish.
The acquisition is the second for Park Holidays UK since the company was acquired by Caledonia Investments in November 2013, and is a continuation of its plans to expand the business further afield.
