AA Campsite of the Year Winners for 2013
Posted on August 8, 2013
The number of people taking caravan holidays in the UK is rising each year, as the economic climate makes the cost savings of a self-catering break in a caravan very attractive. As well as financial benefits, caravan holidays offer flexibility, freedom and a chance to explore at your own pace. Here at The Caravan Company we have hundreds of pre-owned caravans, many costing under £6000, offering the ideal opportunity to enjoy a caravan holiday at one of the many award-winning campsites around the UK. Every year the AA recognises campsites that have achieved exceptional standards, and these are some of the 2013 winners.
The Old Oaks Touring Park, Wick, Glastonbury, Somerset
The Old Oaks was judged the best campsite in England, and the overall winner from all the categories. This is an adults-only park, although pets are allowed and it provides hot showers especially for dogs, as well as dog sitting services. Winning facilities include grounds that are maintained to very high standards, larger than usual pitches with great landscaping and a shop providing local produce and home-cooked items. Extra touches include free maps, a fishing lake, Wi-Fi and a daily minibus to take guests into local towns. The Old Oaks is open from mid-February to mid-November.
Milton of Fonab Caravan Site, Pitlochry, Perth & Kinross
The best campsite in Scotland was judged to be Milton of Fonab. Lying on the outskirts of Pitlochry by the River Tummel, and surrounded by the countryside and hills of Perthshire, this campsite has beautiful views. It was commended for its high standard of toilet facilities and its grass maintenance in particular. The site has spacious pitches, and is within walking distance of local shops.
Caerfai Bay Caravan & Tent Park, St David’s, Pembrokeshire
The best campsite in Wales lies near the sea overlooking St Bride’s Bay. Only 300 yards from the beach, this campsite has great toilet facilities, with a solar-heated, wet-suit shower room as well as four family shower rooms.
