Bourne Leisure was established in 1964. Since then, the original founders added further caravan parks to their portfolio and then in 2000 purchased Rank therefore acquiring the Warner, Butlins and Haven brands. Our brands are amongst the most recognised within the UK market and we are proud of our assets on 6,500 acres of the best real estate in the country.
At Haven we offer award winning caravan parks around the coast of the UK with a focus of providing Breath of Fresh Air for people in towns and cities. To help achieve this we have created five values that form the heart of everything we do which we continually strive to bring to life through the decisions we make and the facilities and service we offer to our guests.
Billy Butlin opened his first resort in 1936. Right from the start, his aim was to bring a little sparkle and happiness into the lives of hardworking families. And to this day, while a lot has changed, we still believe in his mission to delight and we've focused on developing our facilities and team at each of our existing resorts; Bognor Regis, Skegness and Minehead. Developments in our facilities now mean that each of our resorts since 1999 features a skyline pavilion; we have opened hotels in Bognor Regis in 2005, 2009 and 2012. But it’s not just our facilities that aim to delight; our big hearted team plays are the key to bringing our values to life with everything they do.
Harry Warner opened his first holiday camp in 1932 and over the years provided millions of holiday-makers with traditional family holidays by the sea. Over time Warner set about creating a new and different holiday experience and in 1994 Warner rebranded to its present offering of providing adults only UK short break holidays at Hotels and Coastal Resorts. This inclusive product provides our guests with great food, excellent accommodation, a whole host of indoor and outdoor activities, together with the quality nightly entertainment.
