The Darwin Leisure Property Fund invests in a portfolio of UK Holiday Parks. Our investment approach is to acquire parks that are operationally sound and cash generative and improve these through our model of operational excellence, exploiting economies of scale.  In some cases there may also be substantial gains to be made through changes in planning consent and park redevelopment, however this is not the primary reason for acquisition.

Over the last 10 years, Darwin has changed the face of the UK holiday park industry, utilising strong management and implementing operational efficiencies to increase profits at established holiday parks and transforming low-revenue tenting and touring sites into luxury lodge resorts.

Our philosophy is to create holiday parks which are best in class, where we are setting new standards for the industry.  This approach has so far proved successful, and the popularity of our holiday parks means that we have been able to increase both the tariff for holiday rentals, and the site fees we charge to owners, all whilst increasing occupancy rates.  For investors, this means higher and more stable levels of income into the Fund.
