Rose Farm Caravan Park Unveils Expansion Plan to Boost Local Tourism & Accommodate Hinkley Point Workers

Berrow’s Rose Farm Caravan Park in the United Kingdom has recently unveiled an ambitious expansion plan that is set to transform the local tourism landscape. 

The proposal, which is currently pending approval from Somerset Council, includes the creation of 96 static caravan pitches. These new accommodations are intended to cater to both tourists and workers at the nearby Hinkley Point, marking a significant investment in the local tourism industry.

The expansion plan is not just about increasing accommodation capacity. It also includes the development of a recreational square and paths for dog walking and jogging. These amenities are designed to enhance the overall visitor experience, making the park a more attractive destination for tourists. 

The project also promises to bring benefits to the local economy, contractors, and employment in the tourism industry, according to a report by Burnham-On-Sea.com.

The towns of Highbridge, Burnham, and Brean are expected to reap the benefits of this expansion. Increased use of local rail and bus services is anticipated, along with a boost in demand for local services. This could provide a much-needed lift for local shops and restaurants, contributing to the overall economic health of these towns.

The expansion plan comes in response to the increasing demand for both static and tourism pitches in the area. There is also a growing need for worker accommodation at Hinkley Point. The new pitches at Rose Farm Caravan Park are expected to help meet this demand, providing comfortable and convenient accommodations for workers.

In addition to the Rose Farm Caravan Park expansion, there are other developments in the area that are worth noting. The Sandy Glade Holiday Park in Berrow, for example, has been granted permission to construct 31-holiday cottages. 

This development, along with the proposed expansion at Rose Farm, indicates a growing interest in the area as a holiday destination.

A local group of tourism businesses in Brean and Berrow has also proposed a plan to re-open Berrow Beach to vehicles over the winter months. 

This move could further enhance the attractiveness of the area for tourists, providing additional recreational opportunities. These developments, along with the proposed expansion at Rose Farm, are set to transform Berrow into a bustling tourist hub.

Workers at Hinkley Point C have a range of accommodation options to choose from. EDF, the company behind the Hinkley Point C project, provides campuses with a range of facilities including ensuite rooms, free Wi-Fi, gym and sports facilities, and restaurant and café facilities. 

These campuses offer a welcoming base for all guests, providing easy access to the construction site.

HOST Somerset is another provider of campus accommodation and facilities for the teams working on the construction of the Hinkley Point C project. There are also plans to house Hinkley Point C workers at a Pontins holiday camp in Somerset. 

These accommodation options, along with the proposed expansion at Rose Farm, are set to provide a range of choices for Hinkley workers.

The Hinkley Tourism Strategy 2020 – 2023 sets out the strategy for tourism activity across Somerset and Exmoor. The focus is on marketing and promoting the area, supporting tourism businesses, and improving the visitor experience. 

The strategy, developed by the Hinkley Tourism Action Partnership (HTAP), is expected to play a key role in enhancing the tourism experience in Berrow.
