Gulliver’s World has revealed plans for a Centre Parcs-style holiday village next to its theme park near Warrington.
Advised by County Planning, the theme park operator is drawing up plans for the woodland-themed development, which will include 79 holiday lodges, group accommodation, caravan and camping pitches, a spa and treatment centre, a pet resort, and a welcome suite. The development is pitched at families to take advantage of the growing market for UK-based short breaks.
The development will also include adventures activities and a sports pitch, which will be open to community use. An outdoor activities area will incorporate children’s playgrounds, clip-and-climb, den building, and woodland crafts.
The plans, covering a plot bordering Sankey Valley Park, will also include a staff headquarters which can double as a training and development building. County Planning said the development is estimated to create 40 jobs.
