Our Story

Once upon a time, builder and caravan enthusiast Joseph Stanley Jeavons and his wife Marion had a dream of opening a caravan site in Torbay.

In 1956, they brought 21 acres of farmland in Goodrington with beautiful views over the Bay, and moved from Womborne in Staffordshire with their three sons Peter, Alan and Michael. The dream officially begun when Beverley Park opened its doors to happy holiday makers in search of sun and sea air in 1959 with just 10 caravans, a few tents and a shop - with the famous Beverley Sisters as the inspiration for the name!

In 1975, the successful family run park was awarded five-star status, an accolade which at the time had only be bestowed upon four other parks in England. Then in 2008, the holiday park was proud to celebrate 50 years of award-winning holidays on the English Riviera – an achievement which can be traced back to its 'one big happy family feel' which sees many guests returning year after year.

Having expanded and evolved over the years, today Beverley Holidays has nearly 200 holiday caravans, 23 luxury lodges, 150 touring and camping pitches and 100 privately owned holiday homes. But one thing remains the same - our family of holidays parks are still very much a family business, with Beverley Holidays now in its third generation of the Jeavons family!

We wish you a wonderful stay at Beverley Holidays.
