Welcome to December at Salop Leisure! These last few months have just flown by. With not long to go until Christmas, we thought it would be a good time to pause and reflect on what 2017 has brought us.

It’s proved another fantastic year for Salop Leisure. More of you than ever before have joined the touring lifestyle and bought a caravan or motorhome, and thanks to our busy calendar of events we’ve welcomed tens of thousands of visitors through our doors.

Join us as we look back at some of the highlights of 2017…

The West Midlands Caravan and Motorhome Show

West Midlands Caravan & Motorhome Show

Our annual autumn show is always a huge event in the Salop Leisure calendar, attracting thousands over just ten days. First time buyers and existing owners got to preview the latest innovations in the touring industry. Over 70 new holiday homes and luxury lodges were on display, including some models made exclusively for us.

This year we welcomed 12 percent more visitors than we did in 2016, with over 6,500 people passing through in just one weekend! Sales in the touring and motorhome division were up 38 per cent from last year’s show, too. From the response we got from you, it was a resounding success.

The arrival of the Airstream

Airstream Caravan at Christmas

2017 also saw Salop Leisure become an official dealer of Airstream caravans in the UK. We are delighted, as Airstream is an absolute icon of the touring industry.

If you’ve never come across one before, owners can expect high-end leisure and unmatched quality from the brand. Trailers in the range include the Airstream Yukon, Airstream Colorado and Airstream Missouri, which is currently on display in our showroom. We seriously recommend stopping by for a tour!

Love2Stay

Christmas Glamping

We can’t think back on 2017 without mentioning Love2Stay. We launched the £5.5 million touring and glamping resort back in August. The dream was to open a premium UK holiday park; a glamorous outdoor retreat for those who wanted to relax and unwind in comfort.

In just a few months we’ve had such positive feedback from our guests.

“Absolutely brilliant site, friendly staff, spotlessly clean facilitates, large touring pitches, plenty of things to keep the little ones entertained... thoroughly enjoyed our stay.” – Peter Morris

“We have been here for a week and can honestly say it is our favourite site we have ever stayed at. Staff are so friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The facilities are second to none.” – Zoe Carmichael

Love2Stay boasts 22 acres of exciting facilities, including a luxurious spa, restaurant, children’s natural play adventure zone and a natural swimming pool. Whether it’s a family getaway, a couples’ retreat or a fun weekend with friends, we hope to be the destination for many more holidays to come.

Christmas at Salop Leisure

Ice Skating at Salop Leisure

It’s been one incredible year for us and our visitors, but we’re not finished yet! Salop Leisure is playing host to lots of magical events throughout December right up to Christmas Eve and beyond.

Love ice skating? Practise your skills on Shrewsbury’s largest outdoor ice rink at Love2Stay, able to accommodate up to 60 skaters on the ice at any one time. Then embark on a journey down Toyshop Lane to Santa’s hidden woodland grotto. Children can meet Santa Claus, get a souvenir picture taken and even get an early gift.

You can buy your real Christmas tree from us, too. Prices for an authentic fir start from £18, and we will deliver it for FREE if you live within 8 miles of us.
