about Salop Leisure
Salop Leisure started life as Salop Caravans in 1966. For over forty years, as the company grew, our showroom and offices were at Meole Brace in Shrewsbury. In 2006 we built a brand new, state-of-the-art caravan showroom and service centre at Emstrey, just outside Shrewsbury on the A5.
There is plenty of free parking and visitors can also enjoy our on-site garden centre and café restaurant. A fun time out for the whole family! To reflect the wider range of products and services we offer, we changed our name to Salop Leisure.
Working with top UK leisure manufacturers such as ABI, Atlas, Carnaby, Regal, Swift and Willerby, we are now the premier caravan, campervan, holiday home and motorhome dealer in the Midlands and Mid Wales.
"Our £5 million showroom will ensure that Salop Leisure continues to be the Midlands premier caravan dealership for another 40 years.” – Tony Bywater, Chairman
