AN UPMARKET holiday park in the North York Moors National Park, launched 12 months ago year, has enjoyed a strong year despite the Brexit vote.

The 10-acre £500,000 Wayside Lakes development between Kirkbymoorside and Pickering is situated next to the popular Wayside Holiday Park.

Both are owned by Yorkshire businessman Mark Goodson The five-star development, whose focal point is two picturesque lakes, caters for up to 38 exclusive lodges. Already ten lodges have been bought and are occupied on site.

Mr Gordon said uncertainty caused by the looming Brexit vote last spring slowed everything down but post-Brexit, despite worries about the future, the market picked up well, and the fall in the pound meant the idea of a staycation was increasingly attractive.
