Haven has invested in excess of £3m in the pool at Craig Tara

Post by Keith » 3 years ago

Haven has invested in excess of £3 million in re-styling their pool complex at Craig Tara Holiday Park in Ayr, Scotland.

It is the largest pool area in the Haven portfolio and features include three pools, a children’s paddling area with mini slide and water play features, nearly 200 metres of giant flumes, a 90 metre rapid ride and a 30 metre three lane slide the pool.

Haven has worked closely with A&M Architects, Leisure Concepts Ltd and NCF Systems Ltd to ensure that the project was finished to the highest standard.

Paul Nicol, Operations Director from Haven, commented:

“This is first phase of a multi-million pound development on the park. Over the last seven years the park has seen an investment of £20 million and the feedback we have received from our guests has been really positive; we look forward to further developments on the holiday park in the future.”

Craig Tara Holiday Park welcomes 130,000 holidaymakers each year and nearly 1000 families enjoy the park so much they own a holiday home on site. The park has access to a wide range of facilities and activities including segways, climbing wall, nine hole golf course and, newly introduced this year; Nature Rockz activities that get the whole family back to the great outdoors.

Park operators Haven holidays currently have 35 family holiday parks in the UK and are part of the Bourne Leisure Group.

Craig Tara Caravan Holiday Park is located in Ayr, one mile from Alloway, the birthplace of famous Scottish Poet Robert Burns and is situated close to the beach and boasts beautiful views over the Firth of Clyde. The park includes an indoor sports complex, a restaurant and bar and 9-hole golf course, alongside a range of touring and camping facilities.

Judging by the large percentage of "terrible" 1* reviews on trip advisor, they need to be investing in a lot more than the pool. For a start, it sounds as if the chalets need demolishing, I haven't read a good review about them yet!

I don't believe all, far from it! There are over 350 5* reviews, so obviously a lot of people have had lovely holidays there. What I am saying is there is a much higher ratio of bad to good reviews for there than any other park I have read about, but it mainly reflects the bad state of the chalets.

At our park (Doniford) there were loads of 1* reviews, nearly all from guests staying in rotting chalets. Since they were knocked down to paying guests a couple of years ago it's hard to find a 1* review these days!
