Learning this year that we are Gold Award winners of The David Bellamy Award for Conservation 2015-2016 has been wonderful. 18 years ago, we planted over 4,000 trees, which have since matured into beautiful woodland, creating a natural habitat for wildlife and a relaxing location for any nature-lover.
The park was originally opened as a 5 pitch-touring caravan certified site which quickly grew to 2 touring sites, totaling 15 pitches. Late 2014 we made the decision to alter course and so with a wealth of knowledge from family history including Ings Hall Holiday Park (near Windermere), we applied and were granted planning permission to introduce 10 new plots for holiday lodges. This year with a further 8 new plots passed (totaling 18 plots), we made the final decision to close Queensland Caravan Park to allow us to concentrate on becoming one of Lancashire’s most exclusive Holiday Lodge Parks.
Over many years the park has been sympathetically designed to support and encourage a variety of wildlife including deer, foxes, rabbits, hares and numerous varieties of birds, butterflies and dragonflies. With the new development we aim to continue to support those habitats and be mindful of our conservational responsibilities so that our park continues to be a beautiful location.
