For an adventure that you can re-visit throughout the year, The Camping and Caravanning Club now has six award-winning sites with caravan holiday-home plots available – choose your perfect pitch today!  

Whether you want to relax in a wildlife paradise in Scotland or enjoy the mountainous views at Troutbeck, a vast array of beautiful sites could be yours to visit over and over again. As for the price – you will be surprised at just how reasonable your perfect accommodation can be.

Caravan holiday-homes are an ideal getaway from it all.  People fall in love with a particular Club Site and like the idea of having a permanent base there; others appreciate the freedom to leave work behind for the weekend without needing to pack everything before a trip. For many, caravan holiday-homes are a natural progression from the comfort of towing to a home from home for all seasons. 

Offering all the advantages of a second home, caravan holiday-homes come fully furnished to a high specification, with large kitchens and luxurious lounges as standard.  Owners also have the peace of mind that the Club offers adventure in a safe and caring environment.  You can be sure that your investment and enjoyment are of huge importance to the Club.  A “no sub-letting” clause means owners will always know their neighbours, but can still allow friends and family to enjoy their holiday-home.

Sites with caravan holiday-homes include Tarland by Deeside(close to the Royal Estate at Balmoral), Nairn(on Scotland’s sunshine coast) and Scone(in the grounds of Scone Palace), all in Scotland. Keswick(at the peaceful shores of Derwentwater), Windermere(in the National Park) and Troutbeck(in the centre of walking country) are all situated in the Lake District.

Trevor Woodward, Chairman of The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Sites Committee, says: “Caravan holiday-homes are becoming more popular with our members. They offer the comfort of your own home from home in the Club’s superb locations.  How else, for example, would you be able to have a new holiday home in the heart of the Lake District National Park?”
