All the sites in the Top 100 Sites guide are highly recommended by Practical Caravan readers, and this year is no different, so you shouldn’t be disappointed by any of the entries.

Overall winner

Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park in Somerset scooped the top slot for 2012. With just 45 pitches it’s not a large site, but the attention to detail, such as parking your caravan on the pitch for you, providing fresh herbs for caravan cooks to use, free Wi-Fi and a lending library, all won praise from its very satisfied guests.
