A popular Shropshire campsite has won the Loo of the Year Award for Holiday Parks in England. 

Ludlow Touring Park, part of the Morris Leisure group, earned a Platinum grading, while its cleaning staff took the Washroom Cleaner of the Year accolade. 

The Loo of the Year Awards, now in their 34th year, recognises the very best ‘away from home washrooms’ throughout the UK and Ireland. Any type of non-residential washroom can be entered, and all entries receive a grading following an unannounced visit by an inspector.

The awards are a recognition of the efforts campsites have gone to, to make touring a safe pastime during the pandemic.

Park managers Paul and Tracy Barrett said: “Keeping the facilities in pristine condition for our customers has been a labour of love, and we have been rewarded for our hard work. The awards have lifted everybody.”

Morris Leisure has five touring campsites, the other four are Oxon Hall in Shrewsbury, Riverside in Betws Y Coed, Stanmore Hall in Bridgnorth and Llanberis in Gwynedd, northwest Wales. Ludlow Touring Park is within walking distance of the historic town of Ludlow famous as a foodie haven as well as its medieval architecture. The 20-acre site has 115 pitches and in normal circumstances is open all year.
