Love2Stay is a £4 million project by Salop Leisure, who wish to raise the bar for glamping holidays in the UK. No expenses have been spared to make the site ooze luxury - from rolled top baths and the most outlandish furnishings to private chefs and hot tubs - Love2Stay is setting up the standards for luxury glamping.
The 22-acre site currently holds 124 pitches and soon it will also include 22 luxury glamping lodges, which will open to the public on the 21st of July. News about the development have spread quickly and Salop Leisure has already seen spaces fill up for the next half-term holiday break.
Salop Leisure’s head of marketing, Ed Glover, said: "The response has been absolutely phenomenal. We were recently featured on a caravanning Facebook page and within two days we had attracted 710 comments and 15,000 likes.”
"The phone hasn't stopped ringing. People are visiting from far and wide, and about 70 to 80 per cent of those have rebooked. Many people have come from the Midlands – even here in Shrewsbury – and they all say it's great to have something like this on their doorstep.”
"We are confident there is nothing like this in the whole of the UK. And we are getting feedback from seasoned caravanners they have seen nothing like it in Europe either."
Before being turned into a holiday park - the site was merely a farmer’s field. Salop Leisure bought the land 10 years ago, and its managing director Mark Bebb had the goal in his mind to eventually create a unique holiday park at the site.
"Here at Love2Stay we have developed a resort that is at one with nature and will instil a feeling of well-being and tranquillity for visitors,” said Bebb. As daily lives become dominated by technology, and children are easily glued to iPads and the Internet, we aim to create an environment which is in harmony with nature and where guests can experience the grass between their toes."
