On Location: The Springs
The UK offers many hidden gems as far as luxury caravan holidays
are concerned. Though the focus is predominantly on coastal parks, there is an abundance of adventure and beauty to be had in the heart of England. The Springs holiday park near the market town of Pershore, Worcestershire is a prime example of what the West Midlands has to offer to those in search of tranquillity and idyllic surroundings. The area’s link to some of the country’s most interesting history also makes it a hotspot for historically and culturally inclined holidaymakers.
Pershore itself is still a working market town and home to a range of quaint boutiques for visitors to explore but for those who are more comfortable in cosmopolitan retail settings, the town is conveniently located midway between Worcester and Evesham. The town’s official status as a place of architectural interest is thanks to its selection of Georgian architecture and its renowned medieval abbey which features subtle castellation and offers stunning views from the top of its tower. The abbey was founded by King Oswald in 689AD and is a community hub for Pershore, hosting events throughout the year. In fact, the town is quite a fan of community events and heritage like Morris dancing and the annual Pershore Plum Festival, held every August.
For those wanting to get closer to nature, the grand Tyddesley Wood which dates from the Ice Age and made an appearance in the Doomsday Book offers 185 acres of ancient woodland to be explored. Additionally, the proximity to the river Avon means there are plenty of water based leisure activities to get involved with, from fishing and longboat cruises to raft and dragon races.
After you have finished exploring the surrounding area, you can enjoy all that The Springs’ environmentally-friendly holiday park has to offer to its residents. The onsite amenities include a Members’ Lakeside Clubhouse, an indoor heated swimming pool and a stunning setting comprised of landscaped grounds and six lakes. The homes at The Springs are well designed and benefit from facilities such as free Wi-Fi, full underground services and year-round residential staff.
Whether you are interested in exploring the hidden historical gems and natural landmarks or if you are looking for a bit of idyllic peace and quiet, The Springs at Pershore can cater for you, so why not go and see it for yourself?
