Extend your camping season with the Club

The Camping and Caravanning Club will be opening a number of campsites for longer this winter including two that will enable campers to pitch-up any time of year.

In total, 30 Club Sites will be open beyond the traditional camping season, meaning people can still enjoy a much-needed break well into the autumn and winter, and over the Christmas period.

Two Club Sites – Derwentwater in the Lake District and Salisbury in Wiltshire – will now join 15 others that are open to campers all year round. In addition, four sites that would normally close by the beginning of November are having their season extended. These sites are Barnard Castle in County Durham, Cannock Chase in Staffordshire, Kendal just outside the Lake District National Park, and Horsley in Surrey. Meanwhile Lynton in Devon is having its season extended until 31 October.

The Club’s Simon McGrath said: “Autumn and winter can be a fantastic time to enjoy your caravan, motorhome or even tent and we believe many people will be keen to continue to enjoy the fresh air on a camping break, even as the nights draw in.

“Given the huge popularity of pitching up on a campsite, we wanted to offer campers more choice of locations later in the year by extending the season of a number of our sites.”

Pitches are available this autumn and winter from as little as £15.10 per night, based on two adults sharing a pitch.
