Many of the sites in the Club’s network have top-quality pubs on their doorstep. Two of my favourite Club Sites are Hayfield, in the Derbyshire Peak District, and Dingwall, in the Scottish Highlands. Coincidentally, both are less than half a mile from great pubs.
The Club exhibits at around 25 shows per year, including big indoor caravan and motorhome shows at Birmingham NEC and outdoor shows at major showgrounds such as East of England and the Three Counties.
