Who’s Who

Below are details about our friendly staff.

I first founded the business over 25 years ago, by buying the neighbouring land to my property which consisted of just two lakes and a few ‘falling down’ static caravans. Over the years, we grew the business into what is now the very successful Lowfields Country Holiday Fishing Retreat. It was always our intention to develop a second holiday park along similar lines and in 2006 the planning permission was granted and Highfields was born. For me, there really is no other park or retreat in the UK that comes close. We are the specialists in offering holiday homes with fishing – there’s nowhere else quite like us. We are totally unique. It is true to say that once our customers have found us, at first they can’t quite believe the superb location and then they never want to leave. Doesn’t that just say it all!

It doesn’t seem so long ago that Highfields was just a series of plans and ideas. To see it today is a dream come true. Transforming bare agricultural land into a quality holiday park and fishery within such as short space of time has certainly been challenging but well worth the effort and investment. We have a great team at Highfields and it’s always fantastic to hear how much our customers enjoy their time on the park. I have been a keen fisherman since the age of 5 and love fishing the lakes at Highfields – I just wish I had more time to do it! The future is very bright. Whilst Highfields is already incredible, every year it will grow and grow to become even more amazing. There simply is no better park/fishery in the country offering a lifestyle package as good as this and I’m very proud to be at the helm of it.

As Paul’s daughter, I have worked in the business from a very young age. Although I work from home a lot nowadays raising our family, I still have a very active role in the business at both parks managing the administration, holiday lets and clerical employees. I’m very proud of the beautiful parks we’ve developed and love nothing more than coming in with the children to see all the wildlife and improvements that are always going on. For me, Highfields is very special and quite simply ‘perfect’. As I’m the one who opens all the customer satisfaction questionnaires, it’s great to know that our customers all feel the same!

Gez and I have worked at Highfields for over six years now. I cannot tell you how much we love working in such a peaceful environment. Previously we were managers of a Holiday Park in York, so we have lots of experience in looking after our customers and making sure everyone has a wonderful and relaxing time. Whether you are joining us for a holiday or are one of our satisfied Caravan Holiday Home Owners, you can be assured of a friendly welcome and the very best service at all times from our team at Highfields.

Sue and I love working at Highfields, and so do our 2 dogs Millie and Monty (2 cheeky little Schnauzers). Well who wouldn't! With such lovely peaceful surroundings, there is nothing nicer after work than to take the dogs for a long walk through the woods, stopping to chat with our holiday makers or Holiday Home owners. Everyone here is really friendly and meeting different people every week and making sure they have a truly relaxing holiday gives us all such a buzz. It's great to finish work and relax fishing for a couple of hours, although Sue would rather let me take her out to one of our excellent local pubs for a meal and a glass of wine.

Carl and I have been at Highfields for three years now. We have both worked at other Holiday parks, but they have never provided us with such a friendly and peaceful environment to work in. It is a complete change of lifestyle for us both and the best decision we have ever made. I love the peace and quiet and all the open space and love to sit in the hide in the woodlands and watch any passing wildlife. I do love to chat to our holiday makers and home owners and often get carried away when asked about the park.

I have always loved the outdoors and to become a park warden in such fantastic surroundings working with my wife is a dream job for me. The park has a real friendly relaxed atmosphere and it gives me job satisfaction to see our customers having a good time. What I look forward to most is the summer evenings when we can both walk around the woodlands and then sit on our patio with a glass of wine and just enjoy the peace and quiet of Highfields.

Upon joining I was given a very warm welcome into the Highfields family They really are a great bunch of characters to work with!

Previously I had spent 7 years selling new & used motor homes to customers from all over the country so have a good understanding of needs & requirements of people who are looking to enhance their lifestyle.

For me, I now have the best job in Lincolnshire, with great prospects & working in a truly fantastic environment, with the calmest of ambience and I can be seen most days tip toeing through the woods with my camera, wondering which animal will be around the next corner.

Not having fished for about 20 odd years, I have now bought the tackle and enjoy the odd evening or even a day off fishing with my son Ben.
