Background

Green Pastures Farm Caravan Park is one of the few privately owned touring parks in the New Forest National Park and benefits from an outstanding location just 2 miles from the M27.
Having carried a number of improvements in recent years including a consolidation of the planning use of the site, our clients are looking to retire, giving an incoming purchaser the opportunity to build on the work carried out to date. The park includes the significant added benefit of living accommodation which makes Green Pastures an ideal investment and business opportunity in a prime tourist location.
