Palé Wood Holiday Park Plans to Expand Henstent Holiday Park Amid Staycation Boom

A four-star caravan park located in Powys has put forward plans to expand the park to take advantage of the recent boom in “staycation” holidays.

Sam De Gregory of Pale Wood Holiday Park Ltd. has requested seven new static caravans located in the Henstent Holiday Park (United Kingdom) in the Tanat Valley close to the village of Llangynog.

The park has 42 static vacation caravans, which operate by private owners, as well as 25 touring caravan sites.

Agent Philippa Davey of Savills Ltd said the proposal in a planning statement.

“Henstent Holiday Park is located in a picturesque riverside location in the Tanat Valley, ideally placed for exploring the area, being within close proximity to Snowdonia National Park and various towns such as Bala, Welshpool, and Oswestry,” Davey said.

“It is one of two parks operated by Palé Wood Holiday Park Ltd and was acquired by the applicant in 2017.”

The caravan park was established in the 1970s.

“The proposed development for seven static caravans is being put forward to meet current demand for static caravan accommodation from holidaymakers,” Davey said.

“It responds to the strong demand for domestic holidays as a result of the post-Brexit economic landscape and the coronavirus pandemic, which has created a boom in UK domestic tourism; a trend which is expected to continue over the next few years.

“The park has experienced higher demand and has seen an increased number of caravan sales since opening after lockdown restrictions were eased.”

She added that the “landscaping scheme” would help the caravans blend in with the rest of the holiday park.

The proposal comes hot on the heels of a previous planning application which was only pulled in April.

“The original application proposed eight static holiday caravans in total; comprising seven pitches on the extension area and one ‘infill’ pitch within the main site,” Davey said.

“The proposed connection of the ‘infill’ pitch to the existing foul drainage arrangements on the existing park was not considered by Powys County Council’s environmental protection team to be acceptable, and so this element has been removed from the proposals.”

Powys planners have until July 8 to decide the application.
