The Shingler family welcome you to Lower Lacon Caravan Park, situated just one mile from the attractive market town of Wem, North Shropshire with train and bus services and convenient for many local attractions. For example the historic towns of Shrewsbury, Ellesmere and Whitchurch, all within 10 miles.
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 hardcore up to a depth of 3 feet, brought from local foundries, (which makes pegging in most places quite difficult). In 1971 Clive’s parents bought the ground back and decided to develop a caravan site.
Things have moved on a lot since those early days we now have 47 acres of land, and accommodate caravans, tents, motor caravans and static holiday homes.
210 electric points, 2 Toilet and shower blocks, a new shop with off licence, café and take away meals. An outdoor heated swimming pool, an adult only Club with a marquee for the children there is also a Barn, with a licensed bar where we hold family discos during the summer. Also for the children (or young at heart) we have a crazy golf course, a play area and some animals including, alpacas, sheep, goats, a pony, ducks and chickens.
