Significant Caravan Park In Highly Desirable Location On The Market

Galbraith is pleased to bring to the market an extensive and well-established holiday caravan park, for sale as a going concern. 

Doonpark Holiday Park is in a prime location outside Kippford in Dumfries & Galloway, offering wonderful views over the Urr Water and surrounding countryside. The village of Kippford is a very popular tourist destination with an established sailing community and an annual regatta organised by Solway Yacht Club.

The caravan park extends to about 10.75 acres (4.35 hectares) and is licenced for 154 units. The park is well established and has been developed over a number of years with a network of internal roads providing access to the static pitches. The park currently has 123 static pitches and 6 touring pitches, accordingly, there is scope for additional pitches within the site. The park has been immaculately maintained and is very well presented. The three-year average turnover is in the order of £205,000; further details of the trading accounts are available to interested parties from the agents. 

The sale also includes a well-appointed four-bedroom house which would be ideally suited as accommodation for the owner or manager of the park.

Harry Stott, handling the sale of the holiday park for Galbraith, said:

Doonpark is in an idyllic location in one of Dumfries & Galloway’s most popular tourist areas, very close to Kippford and the Solway coast and surrounded by beautiful, unspoilt scenery. The East Stewartry coastline is designated as a National Scenic Area with sandy beaches, lovely walks and varied countryside. 

The business was established in 1969, is family-owned and its residents return year after year. The excellent relations between residents at the caravan park and the current owner is one of the features which will be of considerable benefit to a purchaser. There is significant scope to increase the caravan park’s marketing profile together with development of the site. 

The holiday park has generated consistent turnover for the current owner over a number of years and it would be expected that a purchaser could continue and potentially further expand the business.

The manager’s house provides the following accommodation: hall, sitting room, kitchen, utility room, W.C., four bedrooms and bathroom. The house extends to approximately 1,800 sq/ft. To the front of the house there is an attractive decking area and lawn. To the rear of the house there are a range of outbuildings used for garaging and storage for gardening machinery and equipment.

Doonpark Holiday Park is for sale for offers over £1,200,000.
