Haulfryn's history

The history of the Haulfryn Group begins with the Minoprio Family, originally from Pavia in northern Italy. In the late 18th Century the family established a branch in Frankfurt and it was from there that Franz Carl Anton Minoprio left for Liverpool.

Introduction

The history of the Haulfryn Group begins with the Minoprio Family, originally from Pavia in northern Italy.

The Beginning

In 1908, in Abersoch on the Llyn Peninsula in North Wales, Frank Minoprio bought a strip of land on which he built a fine granite house which he called Haulfryn.

The 1930s

In 1935 The Haulfryn Estate Company was founded, with Frank’s wife and 9 children being shareholders.

The 1940s

Anthony, the eldest became Chairman of Haulfryn in 1944 and always had a keen eye for the visual importance and attention to detail of anything Haulfryn did.

The 1950s

By the start of the 1960’s The Warren was a model park, extremely popular and turning a profit. Haulfryn had survived its start-up years.

The 1960s

The business had increased but there was a heavy expenditure programme and a need to borrow more. The closing years of the 1960’s were not happy ones for Haulfryn.

The 1970s

The 1970’s were years of further expansion and Hilary Minoprio retired the same year after 30 years as Managing Director, remaining Chairman.

The 1980s

New homes began to appear, designed and manufactured exclusively for Haulfryn. The company was on the move and in 1986 was recognised as one of the leaders in the industry.

The 1990s

In 1990 Haulfryn was able to buy 7 residential parks in the South of England that traded as Surrey Park Homes, starting Haulfryn’s Residential Parks Division.

The 2000s

A period of expansion followed with strategic moves into the South West and South East. In total the company’s estate had doubled over the past 10 years.

The 2010s and now

Significant investment was made into improving facilities for our guests/owners across several parks. Today, Haulfryn remains one of the UK’s most experienced and trusted owners of prestigious holiday and residential parks.

The Future

Haulfryn are committed to driving the business forward and continuing the success seen to date as one of the leading UK park owners. By making continued investment into both the parks and team development, the business is focussed on what matters most – the aim of bringing joy.
