Chances are that fresh air and open space are at the top of your holiday wish list this year. A stay at one of our campsites guarantees both. In beautiful locations from coast to country, you can set your own agenda and move at your own pace. Explore while you exhale in the calming surrounds of nature. Activities? Help yourself to as much or as little as you please. It’s the freedom we’ve all been longing for.

If an escape to the fresh air sounds perfect, but camping isn’t something you’ve considered before or it’s been a few years since your last stay on a campsite, The Camping and Caravanning Club is on hand to help demystify camping.

We’ve put together all the information you could need before your first foray in to camping, to help you get started. Our ‘Camping for Beginners’ guides are packed full of handy hints around the different unit types, equipment you may need, holiday ideas and a guide to different types of campsites. With help from our guides in hand, you’ll be a pro in no time!
