In 1946 Albert and Marie House bought Unity Farm, and for the next 30 years operated it primarily as a dairy farm with a herd of 140 cows. They supplied milk that was bottled on the farm to people in the local area. Two years later, permission was granted to change the use of a small section of the farmland to a caravan and campsite. In the 1950s and 1960s caravan and camping became a bigger part of Unity Farm and slowly the number of cows, pigs and sheep decreased.
During the 1970s and the 1980s, the beginnings of Brean Leisure Park were created along with the Mid Somerset Golf Centre which included Target Golf, driving range, pitch and putt and an 8-hole golf course. Throughout the year's additional recreational activities were created which included greyhound racing, a swimming pool, donkey derby's and open-air markets.
The Greyhound track was closed in 1984 and a significant landscaping project was undertaken across both Brean Leisure Park and Unity Farm (presently known as Holiday Resort Unity) to improve the look of the park.
