I first began working with Miles way back in 1999. As that is twenty years ago you would be forgiven for thinking his energy may have reduced - well that’s not the case as his energy levels are as high as ever. However these energy levels can be applied with in excess of 20 years’ experience making him a truly valuable member of any team or group operating in the holiday caravan or lodge sector. I have worked with Miles as a client on various Planning Applications , Rent Reviews, Valuations, Acquisitions and Sales of holiday parks. I have always found him be straight forward and to the point. Waffle and procrastination are not adjectives you will find in the same sentence as one describing Miles Dewhurst. He takes an absolute commercial approach to everything he does but he is not without a creative or sympathetic side to his character and this is clearly visible when looking at the parks he has had a major hand in designing or laying out for the next generation of caravan and lodge owners
Over the last 15 years I have advised upon several holiday parks that Miles has developed and operated. The quality of these holiday parks is consistently impressive and one in particular, which was a complete brownfield redevelopment, is one of the finest holiday parks I have witnessed.
I have worked with Miles on many projects over the last 20 years, both acting for him and conducting business with him on behalf of private clients. Miles has brought his unique blend of personability, professionalism and decisiveness to all projects we have worked on together and his relentless pursuit of service excellence and high quality offerings is a real credit to him.
A huge part of Park Leisure’s success, was the continued pursuit and delivery of it’s promises, to the guests and to the holiday home owners. Miles set out from the very start to create a unique 5 Star holiday business, that would stand out from the competition, where quality was never compromised and excellence came as standard. This was a strong promise to uphold but Miles is a true visionary and his experience and ‘blue sky’ thinking, continued to push the boundaries on park design, Innovation and overall quality and standards – as well as identifying great new business opportunities. The parks looked absolutely stunning and I felt incredibly proud to work for a company that had integrity and valued its team, its guests and owners so highly.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Park Leisure and Miles played a huge part in this. Miles has become a good friend, a true gentlemen both in and out of the work place and it gives me great pleasure to support Miles in his new venture. I could not recommend Miles highly enough and I am certain it will be equally as successful.
