Savills, on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council Pension Fund, has sold Rosetta Holiday Park in Peebles in the Scottish Borders to Darwin Alternative Investment Management Limited. The site was sold with a guide price of offers in excess of £3 million.
Set across circa 48 acres (19.4 hectares), the mixed holiday park comprises 252 lodges, static caravans, touring caravans and tents. The site sits within the grounds of the Grade II listed Rosetta House, a historic mansion dating back to 1802 alongside an attractive walled garden and a listed gate house known as Rosetta Lodge. Holiday makers to the park can also enjoy the converted stable buildings, which accommodates a bar with enclosed beer garden, restaurant, laundrette, toilet block and games room.
Richard Prestwich, director in the leisure and trade related team at Savills Chester, comments: “Situated on the edge of the picturesque market town of Peebles, Rosetta Holiday Park benefits from beautiful rural surroundings, as well as strong nearby amenity. Already a popular tourist location, this was an excellent opportunity for the purchaser to acquire a successful and well-established business. This latest sale proves that appetite remains for good quality product that is likely to attract a significant number of visitors once the market returns, as British holiday makers look set to favour domestic destinations due to ongoing restrictions on international travel.”
