Our Story

Douglas's father bought a small farm in 1953. Marrying his mother the following year they started a family and gradually improved the farm. An opportunity arose in 1968 to acquire a small caravan park in the centre of their farm on the old Estate lawns.

It was very much a family affair and the first job was for the family to clear the branches from a severe January storm which brought down nearly all the mature trees on the Friars lawns.

The caravan park grew rapidly and soon overflowed into the adjacent farmland. By 1990 we had over 250 pitches and soon all of these would have mains services. Over the years we have worked hard to improve the quality of our pitches, making each one more spacious and developing them into the 160 unique pitches that they are today.

Our team has expanded over the years from family run to include a small team of friendly locals with a passion for Springwood, each of whom are committed to creating a relaxed haven for our customers.

We as a company are privileged to enjoy a very loyal customer base with individuals and families coming from far and wide to enjoy their holiday home here at Springwood. We have customers who have remained with us since 1968 and others who are in the fourth generation of the family now enjoying their holidays at Springwood.
