Maguires Country Parks is a family run business. Billy Maguire Senior purchased the first country park at Low Carrs, County Durham in 1981. The park at Ord House followed in 2003, with Newbus Grange in 2004, Swainby in 2008 and Forget Me Not in 2013, and The Kaims Bamburgh in 2017.
The family aim is to create beautiful, peaceful and relaxing Country Parks, that appeal to people who are looking for a peaceful relaxing time, with a glass of wine, a book and a barbeque. If you prefer 10 pints of lager and a curry, our parks are not for you. From the outset we have been committed to improving and maintaining our parks, and we have invested heavily in order to do so.
There is nothing better than working as a family, shoulder to shoulder with our father. We see him as the Head Teacher at the University Of Life, and from the day we left school to start work in the family business, he has instilled his values into us.
Maguires Country Parks will be handed down from father to son. We regard the ownership of the Parks as a lifestyle, so whilst profitability is obviously important to us, because we have no intention of selling, we can look at the long term. This means we can continue to invest without worrying about whether we will see an immediate financial return.
We firmly believe that we have the best parks in the UK and we are sure that you will agree when you pay us a visit. We look forward to welcoming you.
