Luxury Pembrokeshire holiday park group adds 54 new holiday homes with HSBC UK funding
The HSBC UK funding was secured as part of the government-backed Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme (CBILS).
Huw Pendleton, Managing Director at Celtic Holiday Parks, said:
“This season has been a very challenging time for holiday parks across the UK, made even more challenging with additional localised and Wales lockdowns, when restrictions were eased, we did see a huge rise in demand for staycations. In order to meet this demand, we knew we needed to invest in the expansion of our holiday parks now more than ever. HSBC UK, in particular our relationship director Alex Loxton, has done a fantastic job in supporting us during this period and enabling us to re-open our doors to our wonderful guests who couldn’t wait to come back to their ‘happy place’. We also wanted to thank our new Finance Director Chris Thomas of SME Finance Partners, who was instrumental in supporting us to produce forecasts and information needed to secure the HSBC UK funding.”
Warren Lewis, Head of Corporate Banking, Wales, HSBC UK, added:
“Celtic Holiday Parks is one of the most well-known holiday park groups in Wales, with luxury facilities available in Pembrokeshire for everyone. After many critical months closed to the public, and subsequent localised lockdowns followed by the Wales ‘Firebreak’ closure we look forward to seeing the parks open again very soon, the three parks are looking better than ever, giving hundreds of people the chance to get away whilst some restrictions are still in place. We are delighted we were able to support Huw and his hard-working team through these challenging times and look forward to continue seeing the business flourish.”
Celtic Holiday Parks was awarded the ‘Best Caravan and Glamping in Wales’ National Tourism Awards in 2018.
Nice friendly environment at Noble park and the staff are brilliant! We will definitely be staying here next year!

Nice site, lovely location, very close to Folly Farm, convenient 15 min drive to Oakwood and Bluestone, great swimming pool, relaxed attitude, professional and very polite staff.
Safari Tent Review: Staff are very welcoming. Lovely secluded spot with stunning views. Short drive to the beach and loads of beautiful sight seeing places.
Just returned home for a fabulous 2 nights in a luxury safari tent. The tent was very well equipped and spotlessly clean with lovely comfortable beds.

A fantastic weekend at the Classic Car Rally, staying in the Glamping Pods. Would recommend very highly, stunning, clean & so comfy! Next thing to try is the Bluebells.

We were very impressed by the site itself, the staff, the food, everything, but mostly Ollie! From the first chat on the phone he was not pushy at any time (which would have made us walk away), so helpful, extremely informative & nothing was too much trouble.
