Notes to editors:

  • Away Resorts operates holiday parks in three fantastic UK locations.
  • Managing director Carl Castledine, finance director Neill Ryder and operations director Greg Lashley set up Away Resorts early in 2008 when they purchased Whitecliff Bay Holiday Park on the Isle of Wight.
  • The company also acquired Tattershall Lakes Country Park in Lincolnshire in November 2009 and more recently Mill Rythe Holiday Village on Hayling Island in September 2010.
  • They have years of experience in the holiday park sector and previously worked together as senior managers at Park Resorts. Carl and Greg have also been general managers on various UK holiday parks for
  • Haven and Bourne Leisure.
  • Away Resorts has improved each park greatly:
  • At Tattershall Lakes Country Park – an investment of £1.2m on a new leisure complex and spa, which comes on top of £500k already spent on improving facilities and refurbishments.
  • At Whitecliff Bay – the addition of brand new holiday caravan accommodation, and the refurbishment of the restaurant and public spaces.
  • At Mill Rythe Holiday Village –  a large refurbishment programme is underway, improving all bedrooms and public spaces. The holiday village was awarded TripAdvisor's Excellence award earlier this year and was a finalist in the 2012 Group Travel Awards category for Best All-Inclusive Group Holiday 
  • At all parks, an improved day-time and evening entertainment programme provides plenty to do at any time of the day.
