A NEW holiday park could soon open in the UK, with floating lodges, a water sports centre, and a restaurant.
Plans have been approved for Hollybush Lakes Holiday Park in Aldershot in Hampshire.
The original plans were put forward by Baca Architects on behalf of Drayparcs Developments Ltd in June 2020 but they were amended last year to reduce the number of proposed lodges on the site.
According to Hampshire Live, developers said the proposals give a "unique visitor experience with an emphasis on outdoor sports that harmonises with its lakeside setting".
The 16.5-acre site, which is situated near the A331,will feature nine floating holiday lodges with three to four bedrooms in each building.
There are already six man-made lakes on the site, which once formed part of the Blackwater Valley Footpath.

Meanwhile, the equestrian centre will provide schooling facilities for a local riding school as well as overnight guest accommodation.
