Mr & Mrs Claus’ holiday bolthole is uncovered as festive holidaymakers flock to Argyll!
The Christmas spirit barometer is sky high in Argyll this December with staff at holiday park operator Argyll Holidays revealing the identity of two of its most popular yet elusive guests.
A festively decked out caravan in Lochgoilhead’s picturesque Drimsynie Estate, registered under the name of Mr & Mrs S Claus, was discovered during a routine inspection and will be – for the first time – open to children of holidaymakers during the month of December, while the couple are thought to be ‘away on business’.
News of the discovery comes as Argyll Holidays reports a record number of bookings for festive breaks with holidaymakers’ average spend also rising by £200 over the past four years.
Lisa Allan-Downie, head of marketing at Argyll Holidays, said: “Christmas in Argyll is magical at the best of times and, but the discovery of what appears to be Santa’s secret holiday hideout is a huge boost for local kids and families visiting the area over the festive season.
“We knew this caravan was occupied by a lovely older couple who always seemed to disappear during the month of December, but it all makes sense now we’ve seen inside!”
The caravan of Christmas love includes trees, tinsel, a desk scattered with toy making tools, sacks full of toys and even Santa’s back-up red suit.
To add to their guests’ Christmas experience, with Santa’s permission, Argyll Holidays will open the caravan for kids to explore and in return are asking parents to make a donation to SiMBA, a charity to support those affected by the loss of a baby.
