Oxon caravan park named best in the Heart of England by AA

A popular five-star Shrewsbury touring caravan and motorhome park has been named the AA Heart of England Campsite of the Year for 2019.

Oxon Hall Touring Park was informed of the award as the 2019 edition of the AA Caravan & Camping Guide was published. The guide features the very best spots for caravanning and camping in Britain.

It’s not the first time the park, which is owned by Shrewsbury-based Morris Leisure, has been successful in the awards, having been named AA Campsite of the Year for England in 2006.

The winning team from Oxon Hall will receive the award at the AA 2019 Camping Awards presentation lunch in Stratford Upon Avon in February.

AA declares Searles Norfolk holiday park the best in Britain

Searles Park

Judges in the annual AA holiday awards have told the family owners of Norfolk's Searles Leisure Resort that they are the UK's champion holiday providers.

The Hunstanton park was named this autumn as the overall winner in the "Holiday Centre of the Year" category of the honours, beating thousands of other parks in Britain to the title.

Awards given by the AA – based on guest reviews and a "secret shopper" visit by inspectors - are regarded as the Oscars of the holiday parks industry.

The park first began welcoming campers over 60 years ago onto what was then a farm, and it has since grown to become one of Eastern England's largest and best-loved holiday centres.

Skelwith Fold caravan park in Ambleside has been named by the AA as North West England's top destination for touring caravan and motorhome owners, as well as glampers.

The family business beat hundreds of other eligible parks to take the overall NW Campsite of the Year title in the recent AA Caravan and Camping Awards.

Skelwith Fold's accolade was presented to business owner Henry Wild at a special ceremony at the NEC Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in February.

The 130-acre park achieved its honour following a "secret shopper" visit from an AA inspector who declared in his report that "this is one of the best campsites I have ever stayed on".
