No, we’re not talking about the fictional TV country house, but Downton Holiday Park, on the edge of the New Forest, which real estate advisor Savills has been appointed to market for a guide price of £2.9 million. Owned by the same family for over 72 years, the park is set on a site extending to 3.61 acres and comprises 74 holiday park homes, 50 of which have been sold into private ownership, a games room and laundry, children’s play area, and a detached four-bedroom owner/manager’s house with office, reception and detached garage.

The site also benefits from a seaside location, being close to the beach at Milford on Sea.

Kay Griffiths, Associate Director in the Leisure and Trade team at Savills Oxford, explains, “This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well-established business in a prime South Coast trading location. Holiday parks have proven incredibly resilient through the significant disruption last year and is a sector that’s continuing to be on the radar for investors and owner-operators.”
