As well as creating a boom in the housing market, it seems the post lockdown period also created a boom in the sale of holiday parks.

Specialist holiday park sales agent, Colliers International, has reported a three-fold increase in enquiries from potential purchasers as the ‘new normal’ resulting from Covid-19 creates a new focus upon the sector.

Richard Moss, head of UK Parks Agency at the global real estate advisor, explained: ‘While lockdown inevitably impacted short term trading opportunity, the indications are that the UK parks sector is robust and resilient.

‘Already, our clients are seeing a significant ‘bounce’ in both letting and holiday home sales activity. In terms of park sales, there has been a massive hike in general enquiries, around a three-fold uplift in buyers contacting us.’

Moss said that the resilience of the market was demonstrated by the way in which, even during the lockdown, Colliers had completed a number of sales, notably Thornton Lodges and Staxton Vale in North Yorkshire; Lagnakeil Highland Lodges near Oban; and the Plas Isaf lodge development scheme in Flintshire, North Wales; as well as putting a number of parks under offer across the UK.
