We all know that staying at a good campsite can make a holiday brilliant and memorable – and that time at a site we're not happy with can have the opposite effect – which is why we need your help!
Once again, we want to find the best campsites in the UK, but we can only do this with your help. In association with Practical Motorhome and our sister website Caravan Sitefinder, we're now launching the voting for our Top 100 Sites Guide 2015, celebrating the best campsites in the UK. And if you vote – by filling in the form below – you'll be put into a draw and be in with the chance of winning an iPad! All you need to do is fill in the form below.
This is your opportunity to recognise the greatest campsites in the UK, to give a little back to the site owners and thank them for making your caravan holidays brilliant, plus it will help guide fellow caravanners to the best campsites and caravan parks so that they have the best caravan holidays.
We recently published the results of our 2014 survey and declared Whitefield Forest Touring Park, near Ryde on the Isle of Wight, our overall winner. This site's success was down to your sparkling reviews, backed up by great reports from our sites reviews team.
The number one for caravans in the UK in our 2014 survey was Bath Chew Valley Caravan Park, a top place to pitch your van when on caravan holidays in Somerset. A peaceful site set in beautiful countryside and with good facilities, it was in fact a triple winner when the votes were counted for our 2014 Top 100 Sites Guide, as it also scooped the prizes for being the best adults only campsite and the number one site in the Somerset, Avon & Wiltshire region.
Other top sites in the UK for caravans, according to the results of our 2014 survey, included Ross Park near Newton Abbot in Devon that sat in the silver medal position and the year's overall winner, Whitefield Forest Touring Park, which was rated third overall.
Your votes for our 2014 survey put The Plassey Leisure Park near Wrexham in fourth place in our list of top sites for caravans and it was also crowned the best campsite in Wales – quite an accolade. Elsewhere, Holgates Silverdale Holiday Park in Lancashire was another double winner, voted by you as the best site in North West England and the best campsite for families, while Run Cottage Touring Park, a site in the pretty village of Hollesley near Woodbridge and not far from the Suffolk coast, took the award for the best site in Eastern England.
Did your favourite site not get a nod in the 2014 survey? Have you discovered a new campsite that you just have to rave about and spread the word? Then we want to hear from you! Recognise the efforts of campsite owners across the UK and vote in our 2015 survey.
Voting is open now and closes on 31 October 2014. This is your chance to let your voice be heard and to put your favourite campsite on the map. Cast your vote using the form below and help us make our Top 100 Sites Guide 2015 the biggest and the best yet!
