A caravan park is celebrating after receiving high praise from the AA.

St Helen’s in the Park, Wykeham, is part of the Dawnay Estates, owned by the Viscount Downe.

Following its latest inspection, the AA declared it the best in the region.

Manager of the caravan park Chris Tedman said: “We are delighted to have been selected as the AA’s best caravan site in the whole of North East England.

“In addition to facilities such as play areas and Wi-Fi , we’ve also installed ‘super-pitches’, which offer a state of the art area for each caravan, with all the services on tap.

“I’m pleased for all the team that the AA has rated us as one of the very best places to stay.”

Lord Downe, who takes an active part in the management of the site, said: “I congratulate Chris and all his staff on winning this award. This recognition by the AA is a great endorsement of all the hard work that they do, making sure that St Helen’s Caravan Park provides the best possible holiday destination in the region.”
