How it all began?

People often ask us about how we started in the tourism business or do we just manage Alpine Park.  Back in 1979 Curtis’s parents and grandparents bought their first holiday park in Cornwall and moved down from the Midlands. Curtis worked with his parents from a young age and decided to go full time into the family business after his A Levels.  In 1992 I stayed at the holiday park whilst on a family holiday, as they say the rest is history!  After a long distance romance Curtis and I were married in 1995.  In 1999 the arrival of Helen made our family complete.  In February 2006 we sold the family holiday park in Cornwall after Curtis’s parents retired.

We purchased Alpine Park Cottages in May 2006; back then we just had 6 cottages, over the last 11 years we have built a further five cottages (Premier 4 & 6 person) upgraded the existing cottages and installed a play area for our younger guests.

During the week Curtis spends most of his time outside keeping the grounds looking good, where as my time is spent mainly in the office taking the bookings and dealing with the enquiries. Helen our daughter attends the local secondary school and helps with changeovers on Saturday's.   

As we are open all year; the summer months are hectic with changeovers and maintaining the grounds, it is during the winter months we get the opportunity to do maintenance work inside the cottages. All the cottages are spring cleaned; which includes washing all the duvets, pillows etc. Curtains, carpets are cleaned. All cottages are redecorated every two years and in 2016 we replaced the children's play area.  This year 2017 we have replaced nearly all of the beds to ensure you get a great nights sleep.. 

 We look forward to welcoming you to Alpine Park Cottages.
