A LEISURE site in East Yorkshire has been sold to new owners for an undisclosed sum.

Allerthorpe Golf & Park Retreat near Pocklington has been sold to a local operator by Savills, on behalf of Park Leisure 2000 Ltd.

Set across more than 96 acres, 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 an owner’s dwelling.

Richard Prestwich, at Savills, said: “The property represented a rare development opportunity for the purchaser, especially as there are few similar properties changing hands across the UK at present.

“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.”
