Lincolnshire holiday park sold to investor in £2m deal

Caistor Lakes, a holiday park near Grimsby in the Lincolnshire Wolds, has been sold to Sheffield-based investment company Evogo Group for £1.9m.

The £1m turnover, seven-acre leisure park includes five holiday lodges, pitches for 28 caravans, a 110-cover restaurant and three fishing lakes, along with planning consent for the development of a further 10 lodges.

Caistor Lakes is currently undergoing a third phase of development which will see six of the new luxury lakeside lodges completed by April this year.

Established by owner Drew Thompson in 2013, the site has been sold by Leeds-based commercial property estate agent Ernest Wilson.

Michael Peel, sales manager at Ernest Wilson, said: “We are really pleased to have completed the sale of Caistor Lakes, especially in the current economic climate and with the coronavirus restrictions in place.

“For Mr Thompson, this was an excellent time to sell the tourism business that he had worked so hard to build up. With British holidays looking like the most likely option for all of us this summer, and with further lodges in the pipeline, Caistor Lakes is a very strong business.”
