About Away Resorts Limited

Away Resorts are a UK holiday park operator, with six parks in Lincolnshire, Isle of Wight, North Wales, Hampshire, Hayling Island and Essex.

The operator aims to take advantage of the unique and beautiful surroundings of each park - so that every single one has its own individual appeal.

They love seeing people have fun, and they are proud of their friendly and capable attitude, which is all part of the unique Away Resorts atmosphere.

Their ultimate aim is to craft a brilliant holiday experience that their customers will value and never forget, by developing brilliant facilities and inspiring experiences in amazing locations for, and by, amazing people.

Every member of their team, whether they are based on one of the six holiday parks or at the central support office in Hemel Hempstead, shares a common goal: to delight their guests.

The company is led by Chief Executive Officer Carl Castledine, who is the third generation in his family to run a holiday park.
