Established in 1977 by Richard Dee and his father-in-law Bert Miles, Golden Castle started out on a small trading site at Stratford Bridge, near Tewkesbury

The dealers then moved to Cheltenham Road East near Staverton Airport, where it has been based for over 30 years.

Now in new premises, the dealership boasts floor space of 50,000 sq ft, which allows them to display their touring caravans, both outside and inside, with two modern showrooms.

The new dealership also includes a well-stocked accessories shop with awning display area.

Current managing director Craig Dee, had recognised an opportunity to expand its workshop and servicing offering as well as increasing the number of caravan models and accessories on display.

Mr Dee said: "This is the perfect start to our 40th anniversary celebrations and to the launch of the new 2017 caravanning season.

"We have got more space than ever before to offer the most comprehensive range of products from the leading manufacturers and brands.

"We're the largest caravan retailer in the region and should be the first port of call for anyone considering getting into caravanning, changing their tourer or stocking up on essential equipment. They will not be disappointed."

As part of the redevelopment work, the Golden Castle NCC approved caravan service centre has also been expanded to offer more service bays in the workshops, all of which have been fully approved by the National Caravan Council, The Caravan Club and The Camping and Caravanning Club.
