Holiday park undergoes expansion

The lodge development at Newquay View Resort.

ONE of Newquay’s largest holiday resorts has undergone improvements as part of its five-year expansion plans.

Newquay View Resort has created a new lodge development, with plots that people can purchase as holiday homes. A lodge or a caravan can be placed on the site.

There have been 27 plots incorporated in the first phase, which has been completed, and an undetermined number will be included in the second phase.

The holiday park has also transformed its leisure complex, housing brand new changing rooms in the impressive indoor pool which is used by community groups, including surf life saving clubs from across Newquay.

New additions to the leisure complex, which is open to all, include a sauna and steam room for holidaymakers and owners to use, an Endless Swimming Pool for sports training, in conjunction with Lee Stanbury, plus a coffee house and bistro serving food, drinks, meals and snacks in partnership with the team behind the catering at Chapter 1 restaurant in Newquay.

Local contractors working on site include Beefold Services and Mad Dog Developers.  
Newquay View Resort also now houses a brand new fitness studio run by Academy Fitness, which will provide space for classes and athletes to train.

As part of the continued development, the team has introduced a brand new run into the sporting calendar, the Valley View Run 5/10K, which takes place on Sunday, May 22, and can be entered online.

The independently-run Blue Surf School is also based at the adventurous resort. Peter Bull Resorts, owner of Newquay View Resort, is undertaking the latest developments to make its three Cornish holiday parks five-star.

Employee numbers have more than doubled since the business was taken over.  The family-friendly resort also now has a holiday home owner community of 57 – up from only six owners in the previous year.

The resort’s seasonal touring van community has jumped from five to 50.

New self catering holiday vans accommodation has also been introduced to the resort, including Elite caravans and glamping pods.

Ian Smith, joint managing director, said: “Our exclusive new lodge development at Newquay View Resort will encourage new and existing audiences to visit Newquay. In just eight weeks we’ve made massive changes to the resort and we’re getting excellent Trip Advisor reviews and comments from our owners who are investing into our vision.”
