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 Harrison Pitt Architects.
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 which has completely revitalised the site which was used as a slate quarry until 1930 and later became an Air Ministry bomb store during the Second World War.
Richard Wooldridge, director at Harrison Pitt Architects, 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.”
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.”
The team of caravan park architects at Harrison Pitt Architects has built up vast experience in caravan park design.
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 1980s.
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.
