"It's a mixture of existing owners, first time buyers and local families who come to enjoy the activities on offer while also experiencing the lifestyle which owning a caravan brings.

"A free activity programme designed to promote the Heart of England, Mid Wales Inland and Mid Wales Coastal as holiday destinations allows visitors to experience holiday home and leisure vehicle ownership.
