Harvey Alexander, director of marketing at the Caravan and Motorhome Club said:  “As a Club our priority is to ensure that we are offering our members the best possible amenities so they can enjoy their adventures safe in the knowledge they are staying in top quality Club sites.  Many of our ongoing upgrades are done as a result of listening to members and refining our product offering to ensure we are giving them the facilities that they want and need.”

The £14 million upgrade programme includes:


Buxton is undergoing many exciting redevelopments. Seven new all-weather pitches are being installed and 22 existing pitches are being converted to fully-serviced pitches, the toilet and shower block are being completely replaced and new family and disabled facilities are being added.


An additional 81 hardstanding pitches are being added to this Yorkshire site; ten will be fully serviced and seven can accommodate vehicles up to 12m long. The site will also boast brand new toilet and shower facilities, two new service points and a new motorhome waste point.


York Beechwood Grange will undergo extensive renovations during the next six months. When it reopens in September 2018 there will be a brand new amenity block with modern toilet and shower facilities (including a family room), as well as a new motorhome waste point and two new service points.


With its views of Tewkesbury Abbey and its proximity to the town centre, this is a popular site. When it reopens next summer, members will be able to enjoy new toilet and shower facilities (including a family room) and take advantage of 50 new all-weather pitches.


In 2018 the final phase of development at this Surrey Hills site – to refurbish the upper amenity block – will be underway. New serviced pitches and a new motorhome waste point are now available, and this site is also home to three fantastic glamping pods (above) – ideal for friends and family, and Club members get a 10% discount.
