Dorset and Hampshire holiday parks enhanced by Hoburne’s multi-million pound investment

Hoburne – one of the UK’s longest-established holiday groups – is investing more than £2million into its holidays parks based across Dorset and Hampshire. 

The investment is part of a programme of company-wide developments worth a total of £6million, in which all of Hoburne’s seven holiday parks across the south-west of England are set to be enhanced.

The developments will ensure an improved customer experience for all visitors from March; when the parks open for the 2016 holiday season.

New and improved family entertainment and dining areas

As a result of a £1million spend at both the Dorset-based Hoburne Naish and Hampshire-based Hoburne Bashley holiday parks, customers will gain new and improved family entertainment and dining areas.

Both these parks will have:

  • £1million spent on creating a new-look entertainment and leisure complex at both parks, complete with new interior décor and contemporary furniture and fittings
  • New family-friendly dining venues including ‘Café H’ and a restaurant, offering full table service and both classic and modern food options at great prices
  • New and improved communal areas, providing welcoming and contemporary spaces to relax with the family
  • Free Wi-Fi will also be available throughout, and at all of the company’s seven parks.

Larger choice of accommodation

The investment programme also includes accommodation options being enhanced at Hoburne Park in Dorset and Hoburne Bashley in Hampshire:

  • In 2016 Hoburne Park will have 24 brand new holiday caravans, with the majority being top-of-the-range ‘Platinum Plus’ and ‘Platinum’ caravans, which will add to the premium feel of the park
  • Hoburne Bashley will have a brand new pitch development offering lodge accommodation for the first time. Also more ‘Platinum’ and ‘Platinum Plus’ caravans and other grades of accommodation will be available.

Managing Director of Hoburne, Rod Tucker, commented: “At our Dorset and Hampshire parks in 2016 our customers will get the same Hoburne experience that they know and love, yet we are literally transforming some of the parks’ communal areas, accommodation offer and facilities to create an even better environment for a perfect family holiday.”

He continued: “The huge investment that we are currently making is testament to our commitment to setting new standards across the industry and to our goal of exceeding our customer’s expectations.

“We have engaged professional interior designers to create stylish interior schemes incorporating relaxing colours and natural materials, as well as comfortable seating options and attractive design-led communal spaces which we are confident that our customers will love.”

Hoburne, which was established in Dorset in 1912, has a policy of continual reinvestment and improvement. The company’s philosophy is focussed on providing traditional family holidays with the highest standards in facilities, accommodation and service, at value for money prices.

Over 100,000 holidaymakers stayed with Hoburne in 2015 and more than 2,000 private owners have a holiday home at a Hoburne park.
