The figures, compiled from Pitchup.com’s bookings for 2,600 camping and caravan sites across 36 countries worldwide, show Aqueduct Marina led the way for visitors to Cheshire last year, bringing an impressive 331 bookings to the region, a staggering 9% ahead of its nearest competitor in the area. As the booming post-Brexit staycation trend continues, early bookings for the New Year suggest Aqueduct Marina Caravan Park is set to maintain its momentum this year.
Dan Yates, founder of outdoor accommodation specialist Pitchup.com, commented, “The north west attracted 2.5 million searches by our customers in 2016, making it a popular choice for our client base of outdoor enthusiasts. Aqueduct Marina Caravan Park’s appeal is in its unique location, in the centre of the Cheshire canal network and surrounded by waterside walks.”
Commenting on the success, Bernie McCrae, Marketing Communications Co-ordinator at Aqueduct Marina Caravan Park, said, “We are thrilled to hear that we were the best-selling site in the county for 2016. Our profile on Pitchup.com helps give us the edge against our competitors, enabling us to reach a global audience of keen outdoor holidaymakers, with strong visibility across all digital platforms. This is increasingly important as more people use their mobile devices to research and book holidays.”
