Freshfields advises CVC Capital Partners VIII on its acquisition of Away Resorts

Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer (‘Freshfields’) is advising CVC Capital Partners VIII, part of one of the world’s leading private equity and investment advisory firms, on the acquisition of leading British holiday park operator, Away Resorts, from Freshstream.

Founded in 2008, Away Resorts operates nine parks in prime UK holiday destinations, including Tattershall Lakes in Lincolnshire and Sandy Balls in the New Forest, welcoming almost 200,000 holiday-makers each year. The business recently expanded through the acquisition of popular Cornwall holiday park St Ives Bay, and over the past few years has invested heavily into its existing estate, to expand parks and add state-of-the-art facilities and entertainment complexes. The outlook for Away Resorts continues to be strong, with record demand set for H2 2021.

The team is being led by Charles Hayes, Alex Mitchell, Andy Robinson and Denise Ryan.
