Darwin Leisure Property Fund adds to North Wales hub with acquisition of Aberconwy Resort & Spa

The Darwin Leisure Property Fund (the Fund), the only investment fund in the UK investing in the lucrative £6 billion UK holiday park industry, has recently completed the acquisition of its 19th holiday park, Aberconwy Resort and Spa in North Wales, the Fund’s fourth holiday park in this area.

Aberconwy is a 31 acre, 300 pitch static caravan and lodge park set along a beautiful stretch of beach in Conwy Bay.  Aberconwy offers premium leisure facilities including an indoor leisure complex with spa, hair salon and gym and ‘Signatures’ restaurant, which offers fine dining and entertainment.   The restaurant is open to the public and the leisure facilities are accessible through a membership scheme.

Aberconwy is situated just a short distance from the A55, giving excellent access towards Liverpool and Manchester as well as being on the doorstep of the Snowdonia National Park and the Isle of Anglesey. 

Aberconwy will join the Fund’s ‘Darwin Escapes’ collection of luxury UK holiday resorts and retreats. The park was purchased from private owners for an undisclosed sum.

Anthony Esse, CEO of Darwin Property Investment Management, which is the Investment Adviser to the Fund, commented “Aberconwy is a perfect fit with our Darwin Escapes collection of UK holiday resorts. Darwin are investing heavily in these resorts to ensure we set new standards for holiday home owners and holiday makers and look forward to carrying on the work started by its previous owners to make Aberconwy one of the UK’s leading resorts”.
