Lancaster architects complete luxury caravan park

A five-star standard touring caravan park in Snowdonia National Park is the latest project to be completed by Lancaster-based Harrison Pitt Architects.

The practice’s hotels and leisure team designed the 54-pitch park in Llanberis on behalf of Morris Leisure, the touring caravan and luxury holiday home park operator.

Work started in April 2015 on the project which has completely revitalised the site which was formerly used as a slate quarry until 1930 and later became an Air Ministry bomb store during the Second World War.

Richard Wooldridge, director at Harrison Pitt Architects, based in Castle Hill, said: “We’ve built up significant expertise in caravan park design thanks to our longstanding work with the Caravan Club. It was an honour to be invited to design another caravan park for Morris Leisure, particularly in such a breath-taking location as Snowdonia.”

Edward Goddard, a director of Morris Leisure, said: “Our mission is to provide touring parks that set the highest standards for our visiting touring caravanners, motorhome and RV owners and campers. We’re very proud of our new facility at Llanberis which is now providing our customers with unrivalled facilities in this area of North Wales.”

The development site in Llanberis lies within the Glyn Rhonwy complex in an area of land adjacent to Llyn Tomos Lewis. The land was formerly used as offices and storage space by the former Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) during the development of the Dinorwig Power Station in the early 1980s. Harrison Pitt Architects has designed five schemes across the UK on behalf of Morris Leisure. It has worked on over 50 caravan park projects on behalf of the Caravan Club since the practice was formed in 1979.
