Favourite campsites

Campers, festi-heads, hikers, even spelunkers... all welcome here. No fresh air activity too hearty, no fold-up product too desirable.

I can't wait! MJ is asking if he can have the day off school to go early. I'm hoping for driftwood and shell collecting on empty beaches, sea kayaking, story-reading, whale and dolphin watching, campfire barbecues and cider-drinking under an endlessly starry sky. Squeeeee!

We're here! MJ is wrapped in his special camping blanket after a bit of torchlit possum-spotting, the campfire is roaring, DH and I have cider in hand, the stars are A.ma.zing. I'm now putting my phone away and off to engage with real life :D

Oooh - Foo is booking some random weeks off work today so we can start thinking about holidays :D

Anyone got any recommendations for campsites halfway between Birmingham & Malvern? We need a toilet/tap but otherwise anything goes (Easter holidays time).

Sorry Morlyte, not sure about there but We are planning a trip to this one


It's in frodsham - has anyone been? Our friend has chosen the campsite although I must admit it looks like a good one. I like the idea of heated floors in the showers.

Any other good campsites in Scotland other than the ones already recommended? We are hoping to go to Comrie Croft for a couple of nights while we go to visit Auchingarrich Animal park. Then we want to go to a few other places on weekend breaks so all ideas welcome!
