Company’s parks named in Britain’s Top 100 Sites Guide for the seventh time

All five of a leisure company’s touring caravan and motorhome parks across Shropshire and North Wales have been named in a Top 100 Sites Guide for the seventh consecutive year.

The news comes as a boost to Shrewsbury-based Morris Leisure and its staff as they prepare for what is expected to be another busy staycationing year on their five-star parks.

Morris Leisure owns Stanmore Hall Touring Park at Bridgnorth, Ludlow Touring Park at Ludlow, Oxon Hall Touring Park at Shrewsbury, Llanberis Touring Park at Llanberis and Riverside Touring and Holiday Park at Betws-y-coed.

Ludlow Touring Park also won the Heart of England regional awards for touring caravans and motorhomes.

The Top 100 Sites Guide is published by Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome annually to recognise the best sites in the UK voted for by the public. More than 8,000 caravan and motorhome owners cast their vote this year to ensure their favourite site made the final list.

Paul Critcher, Top 100  Sites Guide editor, said: “It’s a fantastic achievement to be listed among the best, especially when year-on-year standards and guest expectations continue to rise.

“Demand for UK holidays has grown significantly over the past couple of years, mainly fuelled by travel restrictions as a result of the pandemic.

“Growing demand and higher expectations bring their own unique challenges but, overall, that increased interest has resulted in improvements and innovation across the whole industry. Improved facilities, better choice and more amenities have meant that touring holidays have become super-fashionable.”

Edward Goddard, Morris Leisure’s managing director, said: “We are absolutely delighted that all five of our touring parks are listed in Top 100 Sites Guide again and particularly excited that Ludlow Touring Park won theHeart of England regional awards for touring caravans and motorhomes.

“We are very proud of the high standards set at all our parks and delighted that caravanners and motorhome owners have supported them again in the annual survey.

“Inclusion in the Top 100 Sites Guide acknowledges the hard work and enthusiasm of all our staff who maintain the high standards and ensure a warm welcome to every customer.

“It should also be noted that the parks make an important contribution to the communities and local economy, where they are located.”
