New investments

Ever since Away Resorts was founded, we’ve invested millions into improving our parks to make sure our guests have the best experience possible. From Exclusive accommodation, more hot tubs, play areas, countless new restaurants and even an adults only bar, the Giggling Goose at Tattershall Lakes Country Park, we’ve pulled out all the stops to guarantee an unforgettable holiday experience for every single one of our guests.

But it doesn’t stop there, we’ve also worked hard to offer a great selection of modern and affordable holiday homes to buy within our holiday parks across the UK. With brilliant facilities to make use of and stunning locations to base yourselves in, we’re proud of our ownership options at Away Resorts.


New parks

From our launch in 2008 we have worked hard to expand our growing family of parks, all with their own personality and team members that make your stay truly memorable – that’s why we refer to them as our Holiday Heroes!

So, let’s rewind and take a look back over the timeline of Away Resorts. Whitecliff Bay was our first park, bought in 2008. A year later, we went on to buy Tattershall Lakes Country Park in Lincolnshire, followed by Mill Rythe Coastal Village on Hayling Island the year after that. Then came Barmouth Bay Holiday Park in North Wales, Mersea Island Holiday Park in Essex in 2015 and finally Sandy Balls Holiday Village in 2017. The most recent addition being Boston West Country Park in 2020!

Our 7 award-winning UK holiday parks, across England and Wales, are fantastically unique in every way, and with fabulous entertainment and superb facilities, we continue to celebrate the best the UK has to offer.

Unrivalled accommodation

Since the launch of the TriBeCa in 2017, Away Resorts has continued to develop our unique accommodation offering and experiences that wow. These holiday homes have been defined in our existing grade categories, but we think they deserve to stand out!

So, this year we created two categories for our accommodation. Classic, which are beautiful holiday homes with grades all the way from glamping through to Luxury. And our Exclusive range; our unique accommodation, each with their own personalities, all boasting welcome goodies, toiletries and a 2:30pm check in. With so many accommodation options to choose from, we’ve worked hard from day one to create something for everyone!


Welcoming our lovely guests

At Away Resorts we strive to deliver delight to our guests and consider our team to be actual superheroes! Our mission is to be a Holiday Hero to everyone we meet, greet and serve, and we promise to do every little thing we can to help you make the most of those precious days away. Your most amazing holiday is our biggest priority, so we pride ourselves on pulling out all the stops, adding the bells and whistles to help every single guest make unforgettable memories with the people they love most.
