Holidaymakers arriving at a family-run campsite and caravan park in Cornwall will now be greeted by Gripsure decking. Our Premier boards have been installed around the reception area and shop at Gwithian Farm campsite in West Cornwall, near St Ives.
The popular place, recently named one of the best campsites in the UK, is owned and run by Mike and Clair Hancock, who live on site in a thatched farmhouse. They have also chosen Gripsure’s non-slip, durable decking to be installed at their home, to help create a safe outside space for their disabled daughter. Mike, who has owned Gwithian Farm for more than 18 years, says the site’s decking was long overdue an upgrade.
“The decking we had down before was dangerous and slippery,” he said. “We’d tried to refurbish it and sand it, but it was going rotten and the time had definitely come to replace it.”
Mike had heard about Gripsure through our co-founder and Managing Director Mike Nicholson and he started researching the product in detail. Gripsure’s Premier non-slip decking offers a traditional deck profile with deeper grooves to aid drainage. It has excellent slip resistance and an expected service life of 15-20 years. Our boards also come with a 15-year non-slip performance warranty and can be stained, painted or oiled.
Mike said Gripsure suited the needs of his decking area at home for his daughter, plus it would ensure the safety of the thousands of campers who stay at the picturesque campsite every year.
“It’s all done and finished now and it looks great,” said Mike, busy preparing for the start of another packed holiday season. “We’re really pleased with it, both at our home and on the campsite,” he added.
Gwithian Farm campsite – named one of the best in the UK by leading motorhome rental firm Camptoo and frequently include in national top ten guides - provides many facilities, such as a high-end shower block, free-charging block, large pitches and child-friendly features. It’s also just a ten-minute walk through the dunes to the beach. To find out more, see gwithianfarm.co.uk
