Deal signed off for rural holiday park purchase

A holiday park in Beckwithshaw, near Harrogate, has been acquired by leisure business Cardale Escapes for an undisclosed amount.

Called Cardale Estate, the park features 50 static caravans and a four-bedroom detached house. It is set within 85 acres of woodlands and has a licence for a total of 77 static caravans.

A team from law firm Gordons, led by commercial property partner Joanne Fearnley, who was assisted by commercial property solicitor Jennifer Stead, advised Cardale Escapes on the deal.

John Brooksbank, managing director of Blackshaw Holdings, said: “Cardale Estate is a premium holiday park with huge potential in beautiful rural surroundings just three miles from the centre of Harrogate and all the town has to offer.

“Joanne and her team at Gordons were instrumental in enabling this complex deal to complete. They dealt with the challenges with practical and effective advice.”

Cardale Estate will complement Brooksbank’s range of property and business interests in the north of England. These include an existing holiday park, water sports activities, golf and waste management.

Fearnley added: “Cardale Escapes has exciting plans for the holiday park and, with it being so close to Harrogate, it provides residents with the best of both town and country.”
