Amazing! Although it’s Saffron, that made all the difference....!
Broad Lane Leisure’s exclusive special edition range, the Fairway, is honoured by judges in this years Caravan and Motorhome Club’s top Design Awards.
After almost 25-years of continuous production by The Swift Group, the Fairway Platinum 580, transverse island bed layout, took the top slot as the pinnacle of style, design and desirability for 2019, and the Fairway 460, took the runner up position in the 2-berth range.
Brother’s, and Joint Managing Directors, Darren and Steve Brown, dedicate the award to their late father Colin, who passed-away last year.
“The Fairway brand was christened by Dad on his first and favourite golf course, The Warwickshire, that wraps around our site at Leek Wootton. He loved golf and caravans, although it wasn’t always clear, which he loved more! Let’s safely assume, with this success, it will have been the Fairway caravan on this occasion!”.
Ironically, the highly valued luxury spice, Saffron, plays it’s part in this years’ range, although it very nearly didn’t make it into the mix! Every two-years, the brothers make their pilgrimage to choose the next desirable soft furnishings, on behalf of the discerning public. It is never easy, and it can be challenging, especially when something like saffron is thrown into the pot! After some light-hearted banter it was agreed saffron will stay, and it is now believed to play a huge part in its recipe of success! The colour scenes, specification and styles are sincerely our best ever and we are overjoyed to receive this recognition by the Club and it’s judges!
The transverse island bed layout is the most highly contested section of the caravan market, so to receive this accolade is immense. The next most sort after is the 2-berth.
Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman of the Caravan and Motorhome Club, who announced the results commented “The information and data gathered during the judging process is invaluable to our members - and the caravanning community as a whole. This unbiased information enables people to make informed choices when buying a caravan”.
