Luxury Caravan Park Design Opens in Llanberis
A five-star standard touring caravan park design has been brought to life in North Wales, in the latest project to be completed by HPA. The practice’s leisure and hotels team designed the 54-pitch park in Llanberis on behalf of Morris Leisure, the touring caravan and luxury holiday home park operator.
Work started in April 2015 on the project. The site was completely revitalised from where it was used as a slate quarry until 1930, later becoming an Air Ministry bomb store during World War II.
Richard Wooldridge, director at HPA, said: “We’ve built up significant expertise in caravan park design thanks to our longstanding work with the Caravan Club. It was an honour to be invited to design another caravan park for Morris Leisure, particularly in such a breath-taking location as Snowdonia.”
The practice has designed five schemes across the UK on behalf of Morris Leisure. It has worked on over 50 caravan park projects on behalf of the Caravan Club since the practice was formed in 1979.
The development site in Llanberis lies within the Glyn Rhonwy complex in an area of land adjacent to Llyn Tomos Lewis. The land was formerly used as offices and storage space by the former Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) during the development of the Dinorwig Power Station, in the early 1980’s.
Edward Goddard, a director of Morris Leisure, said: “Our mission is to provide touring parks that set the highest standards for our visiting touring caravanners, motorhome and RV owners and campers. We’re very proud of our new facility at Llanberis which is now providing our customers with unrivalled facilities in this area of North Wales.”
Llanberis is a national tourist destination with a number of important tourist attractions located locally, including the Snowdon Mountain Railway, Llanberis Lake Railway, Electric Mountain, Dinorwig Power Station, and the Welsh National Slate Museum.
