Green-fingered campers can gaze at geraniums, purchase a palm and take home thyme at the new Certificated Site at Wolvercroft World of Plants, on the edge of the New Forest National Park.
Campers will find themselves nestled near to the garden centre and café, where they can enjoy a hearty cooked breakfast before enjoying the varied plants and shrubs available both on-site and in the store.
Henry Fookes, Site Owner, said: “This site is fantastic for nature lovers – not only can they relish the delights of the National Park, but they can also purchase the locally grown plants we stock.
“The site itself offers full facilities and a peaceful experience – as a Camping and Caravanning Club Hideaway Certificated Site we pride ourselves on giving people a real break from the pressures of everyday life.”
Certificated Sites (or CSs) are a member-only benefit for Camping and Caravanning Club members. With over 1,400 CSs dotted around the country, you can be sure there’s always a CS nearby, wherever you want to be.
