7 | Welsh Enterprise Awards 2020 Best Camping & Caravan Park - Pembrokeshire Enjoying its location in Pembrokeshire, home to Britain’s only coastal National Park, Celtic Holiday Parks’ three resorts - Croft Country Park, Meadow House, and Noble Court – provide the setting for holidays that appeal to all. Each with their own unique character and individual attributes, the family-owned resorts allow guests to relax in the tranquillity of a woodland oasis, be amazed by astonishing cliff top scenery and sea views, or enjoy the endless expanse of a sweeping valley. Established by the Pendleton family 22 years ago. Celtic has grown from a single holiday park managed by a team of six into a multidisciplined enterprise that employs more than 45. This growth has been remarkable in a predominantly rural area, but thanks to its exquisite surroundings and unparalleled customer service, Celtic has continuously welcomed thousands of guests from across the UK and the world to come and relax and explore. Unlike most holiday parks, Celtic epitomises luxury and indulgence. Whether a guest visits for a short weekend away or is seeking their dream holiday home, they are able to enjoy the boutique, ‘hotel-style’ facilities and choose their accommodation from a portfolio which includes luxury lodges, glamping pods and safari tents, which are complete with faux fur throws and chandeliers. The resorts also have swimming pools, hot tubs and the ultimate dining experience in Charlie’s, a high-end group of restaurants that is the peak of glamour and serves the best of local Welsh produce. Once guests have relaxed in their luxury accommodation, it is time to explore - and where better to do so than in the outstanding scenic landscapes of Pembrokeshire. Whether guests choose to venture along some of the 186 miles of coastal footpaths that explores Pembrokeshire, to catch sight of the UK’s largest population of puffins on the unique islands off the coast, or visit one of the other many heritage sites in the area, they are sure to discover something wonderful. Consistenty awarded Gold David Bellamy Conservation Awards across all of its Parks, Celtic is committed to enhancing and conserving the bountiful wildlife habitats that surround them. Not only does this boost the wellbeing and enjoyment of their guests’ stay in South Wales, but it ensures that the wonderful biodiversity that surrounds the parks will be able to be enjoyed for a long time to come. However their guests choose to relax and explore, the team at Celtic always go above and beyond in helping them to do so. Offering knowledgeable advice on places to visit and ensuring their stay is as comfortable as possible, the team is proactive and united, working together as a family unit to make Celtic the best it can be. As such, every member of the team takes great pride in the parks’ multi-award-winning status, which includes ‘Best Holiday Parks and Glamping’ in Wales and ‘Best Holiday Parks’ in Pembrokeshire. Celtic’s continued success has been unimpeded by the ongoing pandemic. Demand has remained high throughout 2020, as people have sought staycation options instead of overseas travel. With meticulous cleaning and safety protocols in place, business has continued as far as possible, as guests have been able to visit, confident in the knowledge that their safety and comfort is the priority of the Celtic team. With staycations set to be a popular choice in 2021 as well, Celtic is working hard to ensure their parks are always evolving to maintain a high standard. With the launch of additional restaurants, holiday and rental properties, another venue in the ‘Celtic Wellbeing’ brand, and two new holiday home ownership opportunities with the creation of almost 60 new pitches, 2021 will see a great deal of growth for the resort. Moreover, the Celtic team will also be using its two decades of successful experience even further this year, with the launch of Celtic Consulting, a consultancy service for the national and international hospitality industries. With its ambitions constantly set high, we have no doubt that Celtic will continue to reach new heights of success over the many years and decades to come.
