Search Press Releases

Thursday 22 October 2009

The summer camping season may have drawn to a close, but it remains business as usual for a number of Club Sites.

And with the festive season also just around the corner, The Friendly Club has confirmed that 24 of its Sites will remain open over both the Christmas and New Year period.

The list includes: Blackmore, Boroughbridge, Canterbury, Chertsey, Conkers, Dartmouth, Delamere Forest, Derwentwater, Devizes, Eskdale, Hertford, Kingsbury Water Park, Leek, Moffat, Oswestry, Polstead, Ravenglass, Scone, Tavistock, Teversal, Thetford Forest, Winchcombe and Windermere.

Advanced booking rates for this period already look promising as the camping bug continues to grip the nation but The Club is encouraging both members and non-members alike to help celebrate a successful year with some Christmas camping.

Sites Director Bob Hill said: “There is something special about camping and caravanning under the stars at Christmas and our Holiday Site Managers and Assistants as well as Franchisees always enter into the spirit of the occasion and make the experience and adventure as festive as possible.

“We have something to offer in all areas of the country and our Sites offer campers a fantastic opportunity to escape this festive season and enjoy the peace, quiet and natural beauty.”

To book your pitch, telephone The Club’s Contact Centre on 0845 130 7633 or 024 7647 5426 or visit the Winter Camping page for a full list of sites with extended opening.
