Ssh! Pitches For Lovers Of Peace and Quiet
One of Devon’s most beautifully located holiday parks is wooing holiday home buyers with a list of all the attractions which they won’t be able to enjoy. But rather than putting people off, Nichols Nymett Holiday Park owner Angela Stupiak believes her unusual pitch will be well received by the right type of customers. They are being told that the park doesn’t have a disco for late-night revelries, or the chance to win a fortune on bingo, or sing-alongs in the clubhouse, nor a children’s talent contest. In fact the only live entertainment on her park near Okehampton, Angela cheerfully admits, is a constant chorus of birdsong - plus delightful views of the peaceful Devon countryside. In other words, she says, it’s the perfect bolt-hole for those seeking escapes to total tranquillity. Angela and her husband Michael took on the business almost 25 years ago after being ‘smitten’ by its picture postcard location near Dartmoor in the village of North Tawton.
