Looking for a UK holiday park that offers luxury and service as standard? So were we – that’s why we’ve carefully developed the Love2Stay resort to offer you everything that you need to unwind and reconnect with the world around you. We’ve worked through everything to the last detail, from fully serviced touring caravan pitches to stunning safari lodges with their own, private hot tubs and large flat-screen televisions.
On a wintery December weekend, we headed off to Love2Stay in Shropshire.
This has to be the closest campsite to our house we've ever stayed in. We only live about a mile away. However, despite hearing great things about Love2Stay since it opened in the summer, this was our first chance to visit it.
Since our caravan is stored there, for a small fee (£10) they took the caravan out of storage and pitched it for us, and then took it back to storage once we'd finished our stay. Nice and simple trip this time :-)
Love2Stay is resetting the benchmark of what you expect of a campsite. It's much more like a luxury resort, it's just that you can stay there with your caravan or motorhome...or stay in the glamping village too, of course.
The toilet and shower block are like a high-end hotel.
No rummaging for 50 pence pieces to have a shower at this campsite; the shower price is included with your pitch fee, and they even provide the shower gel and shampoo too!
Other items included in the cost of your pitch - and this was a surprise - were the use of the on-site gym and hot tubs.
Outside the gym are the natural swimming pool and sun-loungers...though we didn't get any use of them in December!
Near the pool is the pizzeria and cafe, and we can vouch that they do very good fresh stonebaked pizzas.
Other activities and facilities on-site include an excellent kids' play park, a fire pit, BBQ huts, and a lake that they run canoeing sessions on. There's even a cinema in a giant canvas tent.
In terms of other site facilities, there's a nice long area to pull in when you check-in, which is great if you are towing, a motorhome service point, and this:
A machine that cleans out your toilet cassette!
Our 4-legged friends aren't left out either, as the campsite even has a dog path, complete with a dryer.
And how much was all this? Surely, a place with all these facilities is going to be a fortune?
Well, no. When we stayed, it was out of peak season, but it was only just over £20 for the family to stay. We've often had to pay a lot more than that at even basic campsites with a tent and no EHU.
Being December, there were also Christmas decorations and another addition to the campsite: an ice rink!
...and the next morning it was the Santa Run!
The entire campsite was filled with 100s of Santas, small and large, running 2.5K or 5K.
We only stayed one night but had a fantastic time. This is somewhere we will be going back to, despite our house being a short walk down the road!
Update 2022: Glamping in a TimeOut Tent
We'll we've stayed there again, this time in one of their Isabella TimeOut tents.
