Setting up a Certificated Location

All you need to know about running a private, five pitch caravan and motorhome site

Decide what works for you

Running your own Certificated Location site can be a hugely gratifying experience and anyone with enough land can apply. Not only will you meet like-minded people from across the country looking for an enjoyable holiday at your site, your visitors will also bring welcome business, helping to support a local community.

For small businesses anywhere in the UK and Northern Ireland such as a pub, a farm or a golf course with an expanse of land that would fit up to five caravan or motorhomes, this is a great way to tempt new visitors to try your produce or facilities. Apply to be a part of the UK’s largest touring membership base via our online application form.
