Owners of top quality caravan parks in the Welshpool and Newtown areas who have invested millions of pounds into making them some of the best in the UK have been congratulated for exceptional five-star grading results again this year.

Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure Ken Skates and Tony Bywater, chairman of leading caravan dealership Salop Leisure, both praised the parks for maintaining exceptional standards.

Their hard work has been recognised with five-star gradings from Visit Wales, the tourism arm of the Welsh Government, which runs the rule over the parks.

Mr Skates said: “We need high standard facilities in Wales in order to attract visitors to Wales and entice them back time and again. With their five star ratings, the quality of the caravan parks in Mid Wales can compete with anywhere in the UK.”

Salop Leisure supplies caravans to many of the five star parks in our area, which not only attract thousands of tourists but also promote a positive image of caravanning, says Mr Bywater.

“Mid Wales is renowned for having fantastic caravan parks that offer great value for money compared to other parts of the UK,” he added. “Great credit is due to the park owners and managers for continuing to raise their quality standard year after year.

“This year’s outstanding gradings in Mid Wales show that the industry is not resting on its laurels but continuing to invest in quality for the future.”

Val Hawkins, chief executive of MWT, the independent organisation representing tourism and hospitality businesses in Mid Wales, congratulated all the parks for consistently high standards, adding that their grading success was richly deserved.

“We are fortunate in Mid Wales to have some of the finest caravan parks in the UK and they account for one third of the visitor economy of the region,” she said.
