Two holiday parks in Lancashire named among the best in the world

Holiday parks in Heysham and Clitheroe have been given the Tripadvisor 2021 Travellers’ Choice Award.

Every year, Tripadvisor pulls together reviews and ratings that travellers share from across the globe to highlight the very best in the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards.

Parkdean Resorts’ Ocean Edge, in Heysham, and Todber Valley Holiday Parks, in Clitheroe, both received the award on account of being in the top 10% in accommodation ratings in the region.

Steve Richards, CEO of Parkdean Resorts, said: “The teams at Ocean Edge and Todber Valley have worked tirelessly to provide a brilliant experience for holidaymakers enjoying a well-deserved staycation in Lancashire.

“Awards like this, based on reviews from our own customers, are great recognition for their efforts, and we’re proud of everybody at the park.”

Between them, the two parks employ around 120 staff in season, and welcomed almost 16,500 visitors in 2020.

Parkdean Resorts is the UK’s largest operator of caravan, lodge, cabin, glamping and camping holiday resorts, and was named Best UK Family Holiday Company, and Best UK Holiday Parks and Lodges Company at the British Travel Awards 2020, the UK’s biggest opinion poll for travel and tourism in the country.

The company recently announced a £70 million investment in its business nationwide, to install new accommodation, renovate facilities and upgrade existing caravans and lodges.

Camber Sands and Trecco Bay are two of Parkdean’s ‘Parks of the Future’, with investment in the parks to provide everything from new luxury accommodation options to exciting activities, including high ropes and virtual reality zones, and facility upgrades, such as new swimming pools, pop-up food stands, and outdoor dining spaces.
