Motorhome Owners Would Rather Fish than Watch the Olympics

Visitors to the five star Oxon Hall Touring Park in Shrewsbury will now be able to enjoy a spot of fishing during their stay. The caravan holiday home and touring park is owned by Morris Leisure and sits in some of the most glorious parkland on the edge of the county town of Shropshire.

Shropshire Anglers Federation (SAF) has taken over the fishing rights for Oxon Pool, which adjoins Oxon Hall Touring Park. The pool is packed full of carp, perch, bream roach and pike and motorhome owners are already booking up places for the duration of the London Olympics as they look to get away and have a relaxing break. The pool has been designated to suit both walkers and anglers who are both welcome to visit. Anyone staying at the park, either in a caravan or motorhome who are interested in fishing can purchase a day ticket, which includes SAF day membership, from the park reception for £7.

Edward Goddard, managing director of Morris Leisure, said “Holiday home owners as well as visiting touring caravan and motorhome owners will be delighted to have the opportunity to fish in the improved Oxon Pool. It’s another good reason to own a holiday home here or to visit the touring park in a mobile home. Apart from being on the edge of the town, the park is also well placed for those wishing to explore the rural delights of Shropshire and the Welsh Marches. Our existing holiday home owners tell us they enjoy the tranquil views across the lake with its abundant wildlife, bird watching from our own bird hide and relaxing walks in the grounds.”

The countryside park is conveniently located close to Shrewsbury town centre, with a Park and Ride bus service available to transport caravan visitors to the town centre. This is a great idea for anyone not acquainted with the town, which has a wonderful range of shops, pubs and restaurants but very narrow streets where a no claims bonus on motorhome insurance policies could easily be compromised! Motorhome owners can just sit back on a bus and keep their motorhome for exploring the countryside around the park.
