Savills, on behalf of Park Leisure 2000 Ltd, has sold Allerthorpe Golf & Park Retreat near Pocklington, East Yorkshire to a local operator for an undisclosed sum.
Set across more than 96 acres (39 hectares), the partially developed holiday park occupies the grounds of a former 18 hole golf course, nine of which are still active. The scheme, when completed, will accommodate 150 lodges and caravans with an opportunity to extend by a further 75 units subject to planning. At the point of sale, the holiday park development comprised 18 bases accommodating six lodges and 12 caravans, alongside a new clubhouse, greenkeeper’s building and a substantial owner’s dwelling.
Richard Prestwich, director in the leisure and trade related team at Savills Chester, comments: “The property represented a rare development opportunity for the purchaser, especially as there are few similar properties changing hands across the UK at present.
“Located just over 14 miles east of York, Allerthorpe Golf and Park retreat benefits from the picturesque surroundings of the Yorkshire countryside, which is easily accessible via the M1 motorway. As a fairly new business, the park provided the perfect opportunity for an operator to put their own stamp on a property with significant potential. We are very pleased to have secured an excellent price on behalf of our client.”
