Troutbeck Site: updated and refreshed

Search Press Releases

Monday 16 April 2007

Visitors to the stunning Camping and Caravanning Club Site at Troutbeck can expect state-of-the-art facilities and first-class pitches following a major re-vamp by Franchisees Fraser and Suzanne Smith.

Fraser and Suzanne have made dramatic changes since they bought the site in December 2005.  Work to update the touring pitch area has been completed, and the dishwashing area and restroom facilities have been modernised. An on-site shop has just opened, selling local produce and camping essentials as well as a variety of wines and local beers, plus local fare. The Smiths have been successful in extending their opening season, and are looking to re-open over Christmas and New Year.   

The Troutbeck Site welcomes all types of campers, including those looking for a holiday home.  Alongside the plentiful touring pitches, there are opportunities to have your very own caravan holiday-home pitched on this beautiful site, with spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.  There are only a small number of plots remaining, offering a choice of new or previously owned units.

Fraser Smith, Club Franchisee, says: “We are really excited to see everything coming together at Troutbeck, as it has been a life-long dream to live and work in this stunning area.  To reap the rewards of our hard work is fantastic, not just for us but for the visitors to the site  who can look forward to a truly relaxing break.

“It has been great being involved with The Camping and Caravanning Club to guide us on our journey. We are really enjoying being the franchisees at Troutbeck, and have lots more plans for the future!”

Mel Hill, Chairman of the Sites Committee at the Club, says: “Franchising is a great opportunity for people who are committed and want to be involved in creating a friendly atmosphere for campers through the Club.  We are delighted with the success of our franchising scheme, both for the Franchisees and those campers who choose to experience our Club Sites.”
