AN Easingwold firm which specialises in the sale of caravan parks has completed a multi-million pound deal for Berkeleyparks.

Somerset based Berkeleyparks has acquired three residential mobile home parks in Yorkshire and one in Cumbria, providing more than 600 additional pitches for the company which now has 50 parks.

The deal was completed by Easingwold-based Edwards and Partners, which is a specialist division of Sanderson Weatherall.

William Reynolds at Edwards and Partners said: “This sale demonstrates the unabated appetite for well-located parks throughout the UK.

"Demand from investors and occupiers is such that caravan and mobile home parks remain highly sought after. Demand is expected to strengthen further as the economic upturn takes firm hold."

The three Yorkshire residential mobile home parks were purchased near Huddersfield, Leeds and Doncaster known as Hill Tree Park, Cliff Top Park and Palm Grove Court Park.

The acquisition of West Shore Park on Walney Island, Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria provides Berkeleyparks with one of the largest mobile home parks in England accommodating approximately 335 homes making it larger than many villages in the area.
