A caravan park owner has been caught out launching a snobby rant against some of his customers.

The holiday boss railed against ‘riff raff’ families swigging Fosters, made a cruel barb about overweight children and even had a pop at ‘nana in her paper-thin leggings’.

Aaron Scantlebur, who runs Sunnyvale Caravan Park in Kinmel Bay, Wales, made the comments on Facebook.

He criticised some owners of sub-letting their homes to families he deems undesirable, accusing them of ‘minor anti-social behaviour’.

Writing on a private account, he said: ‘We are seeing increasing numbers of sublet guests who have never seen hills, beaches, a job, or a bath for that matter, in some time. 

‘The last time they graced our shores was probably their last holiday when staying in one of the parks in Towyn or similar.

‘You will have no doubt seen them on the way to the market or Tir Prince pushing their buggies with a 2-stone child of 10 sat in it, being pushed by nana in her paper-thin leggings with at least three of the 10 children walking in the road while the adults are busy concentrating on not spilling a drop of Fosters from the can in hand.

‘They usually speak in (un)intelligible tongues and very loudly, making sure their parenting skills can be heard, with comments like, “shut up Chantelle or you won’t get an effing ice cream”.’

He warned tenants that the park is neither ‘Towyn or Benidorm’ and likened some guests to the ‘Adams family’.

Mr Scantlebur said the comments last month were ‘tongue in cheek’ and intended only for caravan owners on a page not open to the public.

A screenshot was shared on a national holiday park forum, prompting some to label the rant ‘condescending’, ‘absolutely disgusting’ and ‘extremely unprofessional’.

One wrote: ‘Not everyone has the same advantages in their lives it doesn’t make them any less deserving of respect.’

Mr Scantlebury told North Wales Live: ‘We are a quiet park with no nightclubs or arcades and residents want to keep it that way. 

‘It’s very rare that we get that type of visitor here. When they do come, they cause minor anti-social behaviour and require intervention by our on-site security.

‘We have a great community here, one that’s socially aware too, as residents often join Keep Wales 

‘Tidy litter picks. They spend a lot of money locally, in pubs, restaurants and theatres, and contribute enormously to the local economy.’
