The perfect site for all your needs
A guide to the ideal sites to book for 2023 for everything from shopping to seaside fun and sightseeing to relaxation
We all enjoy planning trips... and one of the best things about touring is deciding where you are going to go during the year ahead. Why not give yourself something to look forward to by booking a stay at a favourite site in 2023 – or perhaps one that you have never been to before?

Troutbeck Head Club Campsite in the Lake District is surrounded by some of the best scenery England has to offer. How about a trail that takes in magnificent Aira Force Waterfall and the banks of Ullswater, or a scramble to the summit of 868m-high Blencathra, which commands majestic views of the northern lakes on a clear day. (Alternatively, how about Coed-y-Llwyn Club Campsite for all that Snowdonia has to offer, Morvich for stunning Highlands scenery or Castleton to experience Peak District perfection?)
Many of our sites are situated by bodies of water, but try Cornwall’s Carnon Downs Club Campsite this year – local rental companies based on the Carrick Roads or in bustling Falmouth offer equipment for hire and chances to have a go at kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, boating and surfing. (You could also try Norfolk Broads Club Campsite for boating and more or North Yorkshire Moors Club Campsite for fishing trips and cruises departing from Whitby.)
For seaside fun...
With its iconic tower, miles of sand and rides and amusements, Blackpool has something for everyone. Blackpool South Club Campsite gives you access to as much fun as you can handle but is situated in the town’s quieter suburbs, so you can have a relaxing break as well. (Other choices for a break by the sea could include Scarborough West Ayton Club Campsite and Hurn Lane, which is in-between the resorts of Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare.)
Puffins on Farne Island (photo by member David Tonge)
Stay at Berwick Seaview Club Campsite and head to nearby Seahouses, the departure point for boat trips to the Farne Islands. Here – depending on the time of year – you might see puffins, grey seals, kittiwakes, shags, guillemots and more. (Another option could be Skegness Sands AS; a few miles away, Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve includes a three-mile stretch of unspoilt dunes, marshes and lagoons, plus a visitor centre.)
Treamble Valley Club Campsite is situated near some of Cornwall’s best beaches – Perranporth and Newquay have lots of space, but there are also smaller secluded coves to choose from. (Alternative picks might include Wooda Farm AS for Lyme Regis, Penrhos and Cae Mawr for Anglesey’s golden sands or Gowerton for magnificent Rhossili Bay.)
The sights of London are easily accessible from Wyatts Covert Club Campsite
A cost-effective way to enjoy the sights of London is by staying at Wyatts Covert Club Campsite – one of four sites handy for day trips to the capital’s centre – enabling you to take in a show, a major sporting event or an exhibition at one of the top galleries or museums without the attendant cost of a hotel. (In England’s south-west, consider Bath Chew Valley AS and a day out to see Bath’s historic abbey, Georgian architecture and Roman baths.)
Why not stay at Brighton Club Campsite if you’re looking to shop for something quirky or alternative? There are boutiques, street markets and more in the trendy Lanes area of Brighton & Hove (nearby Lewes is also great for antique hunters), while the high street is packed and thriving. (Or how about Chapel Lane Club Campsite for Birmingham’s city centre, where the likes of Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and the Jewellery Quarter provide retail therapy?)
Would you like to treat yourself at a spa? Culloden Moor Club Campsite near Inverness could be a good base, with several local hotels and resorts offering pampering packages during the daytime. Imagine a back, neck and shoulder massage before you switch off for the night... bliss! (Drumaheglis AS in County Antrim would also fit the bill, with day spas and resorts aplenty around Ballymoney and Coleraine.)
