Family run holiday park company, of over 60 years, expands into the Ribble Valley

Holgates, a family holiday park company which has been in the same family for more than 60 years, has expanded into the Ribble Valley; with the purchase of Rimington Leisure Park in January 2019.

Our peaceful countryside park, which sits in the shadow of the atmospheric Pendle Hill, is the latest park to join the Holgates Holiday Parks collection across North Lancashire and South Cumbria.

New owner, Michael Holgate is planning a period of investment in the park, which is open to holiday home owners all year round. Intending to spend around half a million pounds over the next 12-18 months. Rimington Leisure Park is hoped to soon be in line with Holgates’ prestigious and trusted collection of parks, which have been providing great holidays for over 60 years.

Since the purchase of Rimington Leisure Park in January, thousands of pounds of hedging has been planted; with other investment going towards improving sewage and wiring. A new security system has also been installed, giving our owners peace of mind knowing that their holiday home will always be safe and secure; even when they are not on site. Future investment will see roads being resurfaced, new street lighting on the park, and the completion of a brand new lodge development.

“Like all of our other parks, Rimington is a beautiful park in a stunning location and has great potential. We thought it was a perfect fit for Holgates and it offered us the opportunity to further expand our family business deeper into Lancashire. […] Hopefully existing owners will start to see the benefits of the work we’ve been putting in to tidy up the park and potential new owners can be assured that the park will deliver the same standards that have come to be expected at other Holgates parks. It really is an exciting time to be an owner on Rimington.”
