'Huge number' of bookings for Shrewsbury glamping resort as tourism bounces back
A county glamping resort has received a “huge number” of bookings after the leisure and hospitality industry was given the green light when Covid-19 restrictions were eased on April 12.
Bosses at Salop Leisure, which owns the Love2Stay touring and glamping resort in Shrewsbury, said to meet the added demand, the tourist venue has added 11 luxury woodland lodges to the existing 122 touring pitches and 11 glamping safari lodges.
Each lodge features a hot tub, fire pit and access to a sauna.
“We have been mindful when developing the resort that we needed to create an offering which appeals to a younger audience,” explained Mark Bebb, managing director of Salop Leisure.
The company recently bought a 30-acre fishing pools site near Hanwood. The six pools are stocked with carp, bream, tench and roach.
“The aim is to create one of Shropshire’s best fisheries as well as providing high quality accommodation with a back to basic feel,” said marketing manager Ed Glover.
“Attracting anglers and guests from across the UK will increase tourism in the town centre as our guests look for something to do.”
