BOSSES of a popular tourist attraction are hoping to use their land to create a 120-lodge holiday park.

A planning application for the site at Puxton Park in Cowslip Lane, Hewish, has been submitted to North Somerset Council.

The park would be built on what is currently agricultural land, alongside the adventure park, farm shop and cheese factory.

“The proposal will enhance the available facilities and increase employment and rural economic enterprise opportunities.”
