A new 57-plot holiday park will be opened just outside of Hull before the end of the year.
Skirlaugh based building contractors, Tony Cook Ltd, run the Skirlaugh Garden and Aquatic Centre - near the site of the upcoming park.
Now, the family-run business have revealed they will open Willow Pastures Country Park on the Skirlaugh site, near Burton Constable Hall.
The country park will be open to holiday makers from December 2017, hoping to attract its first visitors ahead of the festive period.
Vanston Cook, managing director, said the business was attempting to attract more tourism to the region, capitalising on the City of Culture 2017 celebrations, following the company’s 50th anniversary last year.
He said: “During our 50th year celebrations, we talked a lot about how the success of the company was due to our ability to identify new opportunities and diversify.
“Willow Pastures is a perfect example of this. We have speculated for a while about how next to develop our site at Skirlaugh and have seen the growing popularity of local holiday parks.
“We also receive lots of positive feedback from visitors to our touring caravan site so it made sense to develop this further.
“The great thing about a holiday park is the tourism it will attract to both our business, Skirlaugh Garden and Aquatic Centre, but also the local area – especially the local pubs and restaurants.”
The company typically work with fencing, landscaping and gates, but have also launched a new café near to their Burstwick Country Store as they expand their portfolio in the Burtswick and Skirlaugh area.
The company is working in collaboration with national holiday provider, Hoseasons, to advertise the park across the country and attract holiday makers.
The new park will host NHBC approved holiday homes making them unique from other holiday parks in the area.
Investors can visit a show home at the site and plots are ready for reservation at the park, which seeks to be one of the most exclusive developments in the area.
