Staycation bonanza

newsPointing to the continuing boom in ‘staycation’ holidays in the UK, a top Dorset park has placed a massive order for 80 new luxury holiday caravans, which are lined-up for delivery this winter.

Shorefield Holidays says the major investment in its letting fleet at Oakdene Forest Park, near Bournemouth, follows a record number of staycation visits in 2017. Now, says the group, holiday guests will have the choice of some of southern England’s most highly specified caravan holiday homes and lodges in which to stay.

Family-run Shorefield Holidays, which is preparing to celebrate its 60th anniversary next year, owns seven multi-award winning holiday parks in Dorset and Hampshire.

The 80 new holiday homes scheduled for arrival at Oakdene Forest Park include top-end models from UK manufacturers, some with four bedrooms and others with private hot-tubs.
