Away Resorts is a private equity-backed UK holiday park operator, with a head office in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
Away Resorts was founded in 2008 by third-generation holiday park entrepreneur Carl Castledine when he purchased Whitecliff Bay on the Isle of Wight. Carl's grandfather ran Britain's first holiday camp, at Caister in Norfolk, which opened in 1905, more than 30 years before Billy Butlin's first park.
The UK holiday park operator Away Resorts now owns six parks across England and Wales, all of which are very different in personality.
Whitecliff Bay on the Isle of Wight is the operator's coastal escape, Tattershall Lakes is the lakeside retreat, Mill Rythe Holiday Village is the entertainment-focused resort, Barmouth Bay is located on the north Wales coast with easy access to Snowdonia, Mersea Island, is Away Resorts' island escape just off the Essex coast and its newest acquisition is the luxury Sandy Balls Holiday Village in the New Forest.
