Work has begun on a £3.5m glamping, caravanning and camping village on the edge of Shrewsbury. Caravan dealership Salop Leisure is building the park, which has room for 120 touring caravans, beside its headquarters at Emstrey reported the Shropshire Star, and will create eight jobs.
“We are keen to develop a park that is a new concept, at one with nature, and will instil a feeling of wellbeing and tranquillity in our visitors,” says Mark Bebb, Salop Leisure’s managing director. “Our lives have become dominated by technology, with our children glued to iPads and the Internet. We want to get them experiencing the grass between their toes and enjoying the glamping experience.”
The local paper goes on to detail the new facility, which will include a natural swimming pool, spa, pilates and yoga studio, gym, play area, fire pit, fishing pool, walking and cycling paths, and a cafe.
