THE popularity of a Budleigh Salterton caravan and camping park has resulted in expansion.

To meet escalating demand by holidaymakers, the owners of the Ladram Centre, at Ladram Bay, have taken over the Castle Brake Holiday Park, in Woodbury.

The new park will be run by the children of Ladram Holiday Centre owner, 90-year-old Frank Carter and his wife, Margaret.

Robin, Frances, Rowan Carter and Zoe House will all oversee the day-to-day running of the holiday homes, pitches for touring caravans and a host of visitor activities.

Said Frank, who still plays an active part in running the family business: "Despite one of the wettest summers on record in 2007, the holiday park enjoyed a successful year.

"Advance bookings for this season were already looking very optimistic."

Ladram Holiday Centre began life 70 years ago and was a former farm run by the Carters.

Castle Brake also opened around 70 years ago and has been owned by the Walker family for the past 19 years.
