We also go to a couple locally, one is called Carlton Meres Caravan Park and its fab, very cheap with everything you need and in the heart of Suffolk.

We love this one http://www.cwmcadnantvalley.co.uk/

Stayed there when Harvey was 17 months old and it was very clean, good toilet/shower facilities, close to Canarfon Wales and Snowdonia.

So many to choose from! But I'm supposed to be sleeping after a nightshift, so I'll start with this one which is a bit special to us. Many happy memories - good times with good friends, it's the area where my Mum grew up so reminds me of her, and we think MJ may have been conceived there!

I've linked these two many times before and I'll do it again :) A couple of east Scotland ones that boast woodland setting and the option of having a campfire - bliss!

I've never stayed but my brother has several times. I love the look of it, and it's an area I know really well and is absolutely stunning scenery. Bro has stayed there and been the only person there.

DH and I stayed at a lovely one in Cornwall about a hundred years ago but I can't remember what it was called. Will have a think and come back.

Norfolk and Suffolk recommendations are useful, thanks!

This one is good (in the lakes) for families and they allow campfires, but is very much in the middle of nowhere in one of the coldest rainy-est valleys!

This one can be nice, but depends which pitch you are given and who else is there.

well hopefully we will... we're practically a group ourselves, actually. seven adults, four kids, one dog.

if you think of any tips, do tell me, won't you? or Great Things To Do? the farking activities offered by the site are so expensive...

We're off down south camping in July and I wondered if anyone could recommend campsites in Northumberland or the bottom end of the borders, basically somewhere halfwayish between Edinburgh and Sheffield!

Sorry, my head does a bit of a spin when someone refers to Northumberland as "down south" (I grew up in the Westcountry)!

Anyone know anywhere good in Wiltshire?

I have another Scottish campsite suggestion-


My dad was there the other month. He said it was lovely. They don't tend to fill up the campsite in the interests of giving everyone a bit of space :) and they have fire pits :D Always a winner in my books.
