Red Kite began as an idea almost 20 years ago, when Richard first started drawing out plans for how he foresaw the touring park to be – we’ll not mention how he was blissfully ignoring his teachers and schoolwork whilst he did this, there were grander plans after all!
The first planning application for Red Kite Touring Park went in all the way back in 2006, and from there an uphill battle of 9 years commenced, with permission finally being granted in January 2015. From that point onwards, it was all hands on deck to turn a big muddy hill, in to a fully functional touring park ready for the 2016 season. June 2016 rolled around and we were finally ready, the gates were opened, and we welcomed our first ever touring guests on to site.
Since that moment we have not rested, and each year we work to improve our park and to create the optimal guest experience. From creating and stocking our fishing pond, to expanding our on-site shop to provide more goodies, we keenly listen to all customer feedback and try our best to improve from it.
Will see us introduce our new Luxury Lodges here at Red Kite, with works having already begun on the top hill behind our Premium Pitches. These will be terraced like the touring area, to offer optimal views down the Clywedog Valley.
Was the year we re-landscaped our top tier of pitches to create our Premium Pitches – offering guests more space, both on pitch and between pitches, native hedgerows planted between pitches for more privacy, individual WiFi connection points and more freedom to pitch up how you like.
Saw us add patios to the ‘garden’ areas of Pitches 53 – 59, to provide our guests with somewhere solid to sit out and relax, enjoying the beautiful Welsh countryside.
We created the ‘garden’ areas of Pitches 32 – 38, and 53 – 59, and planted native hedgerows between these areas to provide more privacy for our guests to sit out and relax.
