Teversal go green with new amenity block

Thursday 02 April 2009

Teversal is setting the standard ahead of what is set to be a busy summer season at the Nottinghamshire-based Site.

Franchisees Chris and Jayne Woods have worked around the clock, whilst keeping the 126-pitch Site open, and as a result completely rebuilt the now environmentally-friendly amenity block.

The block has five shower rooms each for men and women, a family room, turbo hand-dryers and shaver sockets as well as a disabled access room, washing up, chemical disposal point, and laundry area.

And the couple, who project-managed the design themselves, are delighted with the luxury facility.

Chris said: “Rather than refurbish our facilities, we decided to take the plunge and rebuild the block to get just what we wanted and needed.

“We used our own camping experience, and our aim was to create a block that customers would find more akin to their home bathroom rather than the swimming baths and would significantly reduce our carbon emissions at the same time.

“We are shattered but chuffed with the outcome and can’t wait for a long, hot summer.”

Eco-friendly features of the block include rainwater harvesting, roof lights, light sensors, and under-floor heating.

Teversal is set in six acres of glorious countryside with the Silverhill Wood Country Park, with eight miles of walks, immediately opposite the Site, making it the perfect place for walkers and cyclists.
