Potters Resort acquired the Five Lakes Resort for an undisclosed sum. Located near Tiptree, Essex, it is anticipated that Five Lakes will be transformed into another leisure, travel and tourism resort designed to capture the imagination of locals and tourists.

Founded in 1920, Potters Resort is a family-owned business providing short breaks in its impressive 65-acre resort, located in Hopton-on-Sea in Norfolk. Situated on the coastal border between Norfolk and Suffolk, the resort (the UK’s only all-inclusive resort) is one of the oldest of its kind in the UK and was quick to adapt at the height of the pandemic to create an exclusive space for guests to dine and relax. Now managed by the fourth generation of the Potter family, the resort has offered all-inclusive short breaks to adults and families, for over a century.
