It’s all about…Summer Holidays!!!

The tans fade.But the Memories last (1)

We all love to spend some good quality time with family and friends all year around. But there’s something even more special about doing that in the Summer, don’t you agree?!

Summer’s all about that: building amazing memories surrounded by our beloved ones!

And at Wyldecrest we’re ready for Summer!! Yes we are!!

We’re strongly investing into our Holiday Parks throughout the country! Check this out!

Port Haverigg

Currently undergoing a £1.2 million refurbishment programme, our Port Haverigg Marina Village, in lovely Cumbria, is being prepared to become the company’s flagship Holiday Park. We’re breathing life back into this site by developing as well its unique facilities and revamping the “Watersports and Marina”. This, along with the park’s picturesque and stunning location near the town of Millom, surrounded by sandy beaches and amazing landscapes, makes this park ideal for everyone!


Badgers Retreat Holiday Park in North Yorkshire already has all roads re-tarmacked and new speed bumps installed. This luxury holiday lodge park is taking delivery of a number of brand new lodges for this season, offering the ultimate in peace and tranquility!


All drainage and water has now been installed at Bockenfield Country Park, Northumberland, ready for the new bases, part of the second phase of development! This fabulous Holiday Park has everything you need: from idyllic countryside and stunning beaches to medieval castles.


At our Bradgate Park, in Kent, all development works are now ready as well and waiting for brand new units! Just 2 miles from the golden sands of Margate, this park, which has been serving the Kent community since the 1960’s, is modern and friendly, perfect for the whole family!

St Cyrus

And the upgrade works are also about to start at our gorgeous St Cyrus Holiday Park, in Scotland, to improve and develop this unique site located between the traditional fishing village town of Montrose and the bustling city of Aberdeen. This beautiful park sits next to the St Cyrus National Nature Reserve and also some of the most beautiful Scottish sandy beaches, with views across the coast and countryside!

With all this, we truly believe that we have a location that perfectly suits all tastes and budgets!

Which one is your favorite? 🙂 

Port Haverigg’s ready for Summer


The work is already in progress at Port Haverigg Marina Village. The £1.2 Million Refurbishment programme is taking place at one of Wyldecrest’s soon to be flagship Holiday Parks, including new tarmac roads throughout the entire site, new drives for all plots, new plot bases and also a brand new play area. All of this is to improve, not only the quality of the entire park, but also to accommodate a new development phase. New “premium” plots will be perfectly merged with our 197 current caravans and lodges, offering stunning views of the watersports and fishing lake.

Wyldrecrest Parks is also breathing life back into Port Haverigg Marina Village, by developing the unique facilities offered by this park located near the picturesque town of Millom, Cumbria,  surrounded by sandy beaches and amazing landscapes. This includes revamping the “Watersports and Marina”, which offers a wide range of watersports ativities with fully accredited instructors, one-to-one tuition and equipment hire.

The lake has recently hosted The UK Wakeboarding Championships and is popular with water skiers from beginner to professional level. Sports fans may have seen documentaries about the Port Haverigg Watersports Team, featured on Channel 4 and The Extreme Channel on SKY TV.

Port Haverigg Marina Village is “the” place to go this Summer! Don’t you think? 😉


Wyldecrest Parks is unstoppable in the South West

Beechwood Park

This lovely picture you see was taken at one of Wyldecrest parks – the Beechwood Park, in Devon! Isn’t it beautiful?!

Our Essex-based company carries on the investment in the South West region with the acquisition of two more residential mobile parks. Wyldecrest Parks has recently moved into Devon, where the company has just bought Beechwood Park, our first mobile home park in that area!!  This popular retirement area, one of the finest residential parks in the South West, is located in the seaside town of Dawlish Warren, within easy reach of local amenities and of the Dawlish Warren Golf Club. The site is spaciously developed to accommodate 92 residential park homes, the majority of which are large twin units with private parking spaces and garages.

Almost at the same time, Wyldecrest Parks has also acquired The Old Rectory Park, in St Columb Major, Cornwall. Remember that the company, owned by Alfie Best, has recently moved into the Cornish region, where the multimillionaire Romany Gypsy has snapped up six mobile home parks just a couple of months ago. The Old Rectory in Cornwall, which has been continually maintained and upgraded over the years, is developed with 48 homes, spread across approximately 4 acres. Surrounded by fields with amazing views across open countryside, it is located one mile to the west of the Cornish town of St Columb Major.

But the recent purchases do not stop here. Alfie Best also bought The Retreat Park Home Estate, located in Buckhurst Hill, Essex. This brand new acquisition joins the business’ Essex portfolio, which already includes Crouch Park in Hockley and Lakeview Park in Romford.

It was actually at this last park where the Wyldecrest’s empire began back in 2001, when owner Alfie Best, now Chairman, bought it. Wyldecrest Parks has now 44 residential and holiday mobile home parks spread across the UK and plans to expand even more until the end of this year. Stay tuned 🙂
