About Verdant Leisure

Verdant Leisure operate across the North East of England and Scotland, providing self-catering lodge and caravan holidays, and holiday-home ownership.

The business is location-driven, providing families with the chance to be together in stunning places on the coast or in the hills of Northern Britain.

Holidaymakers can expect great on-site facilities, outstanding customer service, excellent accommodation and a fine range of homes for sale. The parks provide everyone with the chance to try out new activities or explore the local area.

Last year, the company were finalists in the Customer-Centric Organisation category in the UK Business Awards, while CEO Graham Hodgson was shortlisted for the Inspirational Leader Award.
