More than 40 jobs are expected to be created at the site which will be transformed and redeveloped into a high end holiday park featuring 150 luxury holiday homes.

The park, along with the fully matured 30-year-old golf course, will reopen in spring 2018.

Park Leisure said the development has already attracted significant interest with all 150 homes expected to sell quickly.

Park Leisure Allerthorpe will operate 12 months a year and the company said it will deliver a luxury experience at the site.

“Allerthorpe is ideally situated in an idyllic rural setting within easy reach of York, and provides us with a fantastic opportunity to contribute to Yorkshire’s growing popularity as one of the most desirable holiday locations in the UK.”
