New Covid alert level tier system update, 15th of October

Although as you can imagine this is very bad for business these are the rules that we have now enforced on the caravan park under the new government system. If you live in an area that has been rated as,

Very high, Tier 3

You can’t stay overnight or use any facilities (toilets, bars, play parks, etc) on site. You can still visit if deemed essential by your local authority, but this must be booked with reception in advance and done in office hours. Also while on site you can’t socialise with any other customers/household and spend the shortest time possible on site, We would not recommend bringing children and if you do they must remain in the car.

High, Tier 2

You can stay overnight and use the facilities. But you may not socialise with any other customers/household at any time on site unless you live in the same house.

Medium, Tier 1

You can stay overnight and use the facilities. You can socialise with other customers in the bars and while walking round the caravan park outside and inside in line with the rule of six.

Currently the caravan park itself is rated as medium, tier 1. This obviously may change but the area you live is the tier rules that you have to abide by, Even if you travel into an area with a lower tier. These rules are in addition to the government rules and guidance and you must also abide by any new or additional government rules as they are put in place. The Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish governments also have additional rules.

Brief History of Lower Lacon Caravan Park Shropshire

  Lower Lacon Caravan Park started life as the back entrance of the Aston Park American Army Camp (which was a munitions and distribution depot) built in the 2nd World War, on land compulsory purchased from Clive's paternal grandfather. When they were developing the area they lost a D8 Bulldozer (it sank in the soil) so the Americans covered most of the Park with hard-core up to a depth of 3 feet, brought from local foundries, (which makes pegging in most places quite difficult) but this means we have never had to turn any customers away due to bad weather as our pitches stay hard all the time. Our hardstanding pitches were originally large Nissen huts in the Army Camp, so they are the original concrete floor bases (some are now tarmac topped) which makes them perfect for a Motorhome, American RV or Caravaners who don't like the grass.

  In 1971 Clive's parents bought the ground back and decided to develop a caravan site in Shropshire. We opened in 1974 with permission for 60 Touring caravans, motorhomes & tents / camping pitches. In those days, there was 30 acres, no electric and only a small shop and one toilet block, which was smaller than it is today and we charged 66p per night. Clive, Judy and Clive's Dad continued to Market Garden, on land across the road, to fund the development of the Caravan Park. Clive, Judy and their two sons Richard and Robert now own the Caravan Park following the retirement of Clive's mother and later the death of his father.

  Things have moved on a lot since those early days. We now have 57 acres of land, and accommodate caravans, tents, motor homes, seasonal pitches and static holiday homes, making Lower Lacon one of the largest caravan and camping sites in the Midlands.
We have 230 electric points, 2 toilet and shower blocks, 2 laundries, an outdoor heated swimming pool and a fully stocked shop with an off licence.

  J.A.K.K.S Barn, which is a family bar holding discos & live entertainment during the summer months and the Windmill Lounge Bar a adult only bar with a marquee for the children, also has live entertainment throughout the season (Check Events Tab).

  For the children we have two play areas one by the Orange Area (G units) & Top Field Area (A units) and the other play area by Family Area (F units) & Tent Field (A+ units). Also for young at heart we have a crazy golf course. Finally, why don’t you come and meet our wide variety of animals, such as our Alpacas, Sheep, Kune Kune Pigs, Ducks, Chickens, Plus lots of Wild Life.

Spacious 57 acre site in the heart of the North Shropshire countryside.
