Hazelwood Caravan Park first opened in 1960 when Mr Hazelwood opened a camping and caravaning field. Mr Arthur Chenery soon followed and since then the Chenery family have run the park for nearly 55 years. Things have changed a bit since then. There were tiny caravans with gas lighting and communal stand pipes for water. The park was very much smaller and featured a grass tennis court and restaurant (pictured above).
