Colliers International’s Parks Agency
team has been instructed to sell Cayton Village Caravan Park, a 21.3-acre award winning touring caravan and camping park in Cayton Bay in Scarborough, which is on the market for the first time in 29 years. The vendor is inviting offers over £4million.
Overlooking the Yorkshire Wolds and a short walk to Cayton beach, the park which was purchased by its current owner, Carol Croft, in 1989, has been skillfully developed, operated and expanded over the past 29 years to create a beautifully landscaped development, providing holidays for families, couples and dog owners. Carol has planted 3,500 trees over the years, to create what is now a forest, and some of the best nature trail and dog walks in the region, which also attract wildlife. The park has been awarded a 5-star luxury grading by Visit England; the 5 pennants by the AA scheme; the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award and Pets Welcome Award.
There are a total of 319 touring / tent pitches and capacity for 140 storage units on site. The park includes an area named “The Laurels” which was developed from green field in 2010/11 and consists of 110 generously spaced pitches. There are also luxurious bathroom facilities; a children’s playground; a workshop for park machinery; staff accommodation and a manager’s house.
Richard Moss, Head of Colliers International’s Parks Agency team, commented: “Cayton Village Caravan Park has shown excellent growth in recent years – both in pitch fee income and tourer resales. Turnover of the business has increased year-on-year and exceeded £1m in the previous financial year - resulting from re-investment in the park, good management, growth of the tourer retail business, an excellent location and sustained business. It is located in a traditionally strong trading area and is well placed to continually benefit from the high demand for the UK touring, motorhome and camping market.”
The park benefits from the local bus service stopping at the park entrance and is adjoining Cayton Village where visitors can find the local pub, stores and a popular fish and chip shop. The picturesque Yorkshire Moors are within easy reach and the caravan park is ideally located for visits to historic York and the seaside towns of Whitby; Robin Hood’s Bay; Filey; Runswick Bay; Staithes; Sandsend and Bridlington.
Carol Croft, vendor of Cayton Village, added: “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed living and breathing this wonderful business. It has allowed me to combine my passions for wildlife, nature and hospitality, however I’m now set to retire and turn my head to other interests.”
