Hello, my name is Mark and I’m the Park Manager here at Hawthorns. I’ve been in the caravan park business now for 15 years, having managed holiday parks in and around Windermere followed by three years as a Park Assessor for VisitEngland, assessing and grading parks all over the country. I joined Hawthorns in the summer of 2016, the lure of running a Five Star Gold Park so close to home simply too good an opportunity to resist.

I live in Kendal and am married with two grown up daughters. My hobbies and interests include watching sport of any type, travel and keeping fit by walking our rough collie dog in the beautiful countryside we are so lucky to have in this glorious part of the country.

I am David, the Park Landscape Gardener/Handyman. I joined the team in 2015 and I am very proud of my contribution to helping Hawthorns gain the Five Star Gold Award. My wife and I relocated to the area after holidaying here for many years.

I have over 30 years’ experience of landscape gardening and maintenance. Before joining Hawthorns, I ran my own landscape and nursery business, after gaining my horticultural qualifications at college.

My interests include home renovations and finding new and interesting walks with my wife and our King Charles Cavalier, Louie.

My name is Karen and I work one day in the office dealing with aftersales amongst other general duties. I joined Hawthorns in November 2012 and live in a village near Milnthorpe.

Hello, we are the Wright family; Deryck, Monika and Ashley. We have owned and managed Hawthorns since 1991 and are extremely proud of the park, it is also our family home. We are dedicated to the continuous improvements of Hawthorns, our commitment to conservation and the natural environment always at the heart of everything we do.
