Investment for growth

As the UK’s largest holiday co-operative, all the cash raised from the shares you buy benefits all members as well as future generations who have an interest in the great outdoors. The cash is invested into expanding and improving our country house estate. For more information please see our annual report below. 

In 2019 we invested over £2m in refurbishing Newfield Hall and extending Derwent Bank, and in 2020 we also refurbished Chy Morvah benefiting all our guests with:

Members raised their investment levels to £1000 of shares, we're on the way to improving Abingworth Hall in the South Downs.

Investment Members bought an extra £5,000 of shares we would begin to build a substantial fund to buy The Peveril of the Peak.
