COVID-19 Update

23/3/20 Due to the impact of coronavirus ( COVID-19 ) the caravan park is closed from 2pm.

However we are still running the shop between 10am and 4pm daily. This is only to supply food and gas to the local community.


24/3/20, all non-residential caravan parks have been ordered to close by the government. As this is non-essential travel. In line with the government rules no one will be allowed to visit the caravan park during this period. As we have a responsibility to consider not just ourselves but the wider community.



Transfer and refund policy during COVID-19 shutdown.

If you do have an existing booking that you would like to transfer it to a future date please email us (info@llcp.co.uk) with your.

date of booking,
and the dates you would like the booking move to.

We will give a refund to camping and caravan bookings that are within closure dates. But as we’ve now been forced to close reception we are very sorry but the refund will be after reopening.

Please bear with us as you can imagine we are now extremely short staffed and this is a massive loss to the business.
At this point we are unsure if we are insured for this but we feel is the fairest thing for our customers to have a refund or move there booking at no cost to themselves as we have had to close.
Also let’s be honest a lot more than a lot of the bigger companies are doing.

We are very sorry for any confusion, as originally we thought we would be able to have reception open but after we looking at the guidance we realise this is against the rules.

As we do not know how long the closure will be for. We feel this is the best and fairest way to go forward.

Obviously we will not be able to take any new bookings until reception is reopened and we can’t take calls.

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.
