Dwyfor Meirionnydd’s MP and Assembly Member were impressed by the start of £2 million investment in a caravan holiday home park in a prime location in the historic Welsh seaside resort of Harlech.
On Friday, MP Liz Saville-Roberts Liz and AM Lord Dafydd Elis Thomas viewed the first phase of work at Castle View Holiday Home Park – previously known as Beach Road Caravan Park – which was completed at the weekend.
The park is being totally redeveloped by the new owners at the cost of around £2 million, with the aim of making it one of the best in the UK.
Nestling between the town and its beautiful, sandy beach, with Harlech Castle as a majestic backdrop, the park will have 60 caravan holiday homes and is being redeveloped in two phases. The first phase comprises 30 pitches, while the second will be completed by the end of the year.
The plans, which were approved by Snowdonia National Park planners, aim to upgrade the small park to five stars. Situated alongside the multi-award winning Min-y-Don Holiday Park, Castle View is perfectly located close to Harlech Railway Station and Royal St David’s Golf Club.
In a joint statement following their visit, Mrs Saville-Roberts and Lord Elis Thomas said: “We were very impressed with the high quality facilities Castle View Holiday Home Park has to offer and it’s clear to see why visitors flock here to stay.
“Set in such an idyllic location, with Harlech castle overlooking the site, the park makes the most of the beautiful countryside and attractions that we have here in this corner of Wales.
“We would like to congratulate the owners on investing in this new park and for ensuring the best possible experience to their visitors. Holiday parks are vitally important to the tourism industry in this area and therefore it’s vital that visitors keep on returning to Dwyfor Meirionnydd to help support the local economy.”
