Johnsons Whixley, one of the UK’s leading commercial nurseries, will help people enjoy even happier holidays after supplying plants to a £1m transformation scheme at a holiday park.
North-Yorkshire based Johnsons supplied more than 4,000 plants worth a total of £22,000 to the Hoburne Naish Holiday Park in Hampshire. Included in the delivery were more than 2,000 shrubs and 21 varieties of grasses. In partnership with renowned holiday park operator and developer Hoburne Limited, Johnsons provided stock including a wide variety of grasses, shrubs, hedging and herbaceous plants.
Situated on the clifftop with breath-taking sea views, the site combines the very best of coastline and countryside, from sandy beaches to picnics in the nearby New Forest. The holiday park has recently undergone a significant refurbishment of its leisure and entertainment complex, with its family-friendly dining area and improved public spaces, and the design-led regions with comfortable seating options. Attractions also include indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a sauna and on-site brasserie, along with adventure golf, a multi-sports games arena and play areas for children of all ages.
The park includes a new development of luxurious holiday homes, set in design-led landscaped areas and offering sea views across to the isle of Wight. In total, Hoburne has spent £6m on giving each of its seven-holiday parks in the South West a facelift.
Ellie Richardson, marketingco-ordinator for Johnsons, said: “We are delighted to have contributed a substantial number of plants to help revamp the Hoburne Naish holiday park. Holidays are a very special time for people, full of relaxation, and we hope we can play our part in ensuring visitors have a happy and memorable time amid glorious surroundings.”
Mark Preston, Director of Hoburne Properties added “we have been delighted by both the quality of the stock and the level of service we have received from Johnsons, and the feedback from our holidaymakers and owners regarding their first impressions of the recently developed areas has been nothing but complimentary. We look forward to working with Johnsons on some exciting projects we have lined up for this coming winter across our parks”.
