Wyldecrest Parks, one of the largest park home operators in the UK, has opened its first site – Bush Pastures Park - in Fordham, Cambridgeshire.
The small and friendly park, especially designed for retired and semi-retired people, features 46 residential and holiday mobile home parks. It is worth around £200 million and is owned by multimillionaire Romany Gypsy entrepreneur Alfie Best.
Having brought his first mobile home park – Lakeview Residential Park, Essex - in 2001, Mr Best continued investing in caravans.
By the end of the year, the company aims to own 53 parks in the country.
Mr Best said: “I’m really looking forward to the year ahead.
