Favourite Campsites UK

This is a list of campsites we have stayed on and enjoyed. There is quite a variety from big brash campsites complete with pubs, clubs and swimming pools to small very quiet sites.
We have found over the years the best thing to do is just try a site, sometimes it's great for a few years and things change, sometimes the second visit is not as good as the first.

Sadly or not,  we are creatures of habit and tend to go to the same places many times. The one factor influencing our choices is the ease of getting in and out, faciilties, (or lack of them!) friendliness.

We used to keep a big file with all our favourite sites in, but the internet is so much easier so we have just given the link and an odd comment, as finding a good site is such a matter of personal preference.

The list will gradually expand as I get around to posting the information, so if you are interested.......keep looking! I have not included prices, just follow the links.

1. Unity Resort at Brean http://www.hru.co.uk/home

This site is everything we thought we would hate, but in a perverse way is completely the opposite. Brilliant access and plenty of room, near a beach, with shopping, take aways and entertainment to hand. A massive site with a small  friendly ambience, we love it!! Great for the tow car or large van, book on the Yellow Field.

2. The Old Oaks at Glastonbury http://www.theoldoaks.co.uk/

This site is brilliant for peace and tranquility. Lovely toilet block with a new one being built. Very near Glastonbury Tor with great walks nearby. Again ,super large pitches with all services for a bit extra.

3. Cornish Farm Taunton http://www.cornishfarm.com/

We stayed here when we went to Van Bitz to have the alarm fitted. Easy to book and if you follow their careful directions, easy to find. While we waited for our alarm to be fitted we went into Taunton and caught the bus back, very easy. Shame about the motorway noise but, great warm toilet block, large flat pitches and some nice walking near by. Could be a really handy stop off point on your way South. Remember to take some food as no nearby eateries, although I guess you could bus into Taunton and the taxi back. Personally, we prefer the BBQ.

4. Well Touring Holiday Park. http://www.wellsholidaypark.co.uk/

In a beautiful setting in the Mendip Hills a short stroll from Wells and Wookey Hole. An adult only site, that is very well kept with lovely lawns and tidy hedges. A brand new toilet block with underfloor heating and very hot showers. Loads of space and hardstandings if needed. A local "Take Away" delivers to the site , which could be handy. A very easy walk into Wells. Open all year round. 

5. Mayfield Park. http://www.mayfieldpark.co.uk

Just north of Cirencester. A very handy campsite with a bus stop outside and an easy walk into the town of Cirencester, two miles away.Very near to the Cirencester Golf Club, if that's your thing! Good toilet facilities with hot water and excellent washing up sinks. The campsite also does reasonably priced take aways. Some gravel hard standings and we managed OK with our 25 foot motorhome although it could be tricky in the busy season. The site is on a slope although the pitches are terraced. Only slight drawback is the noise from the nearby dual carriageway which could be intrusive!

6. Cirencester Park. http://www.caravanclub.co.uk/caravanclubapps/applications/uk-caravan-sites-and-parks/SiteDetails.aspx?csid=21855

A 20 minute stroll through the park brings you right into Cirencester. A great site with all the facilities you would expect. Very popular so you would need to book. Loads of hard standings and open all year. Fish & Chips on site Wednesday and Fridays. The park is beautiful for a stroll. An easy drive although access could be tricky between 3 & 4 pm when the college turns out.

7 The Apple Tree http://www.appletreepark.co.uk/

Just of the A38. Good for a night halt. Very good toilet facilities some hardstandings. Quite a lot of road noise.
