Preferably with a pub within 15 minutes walk. I do prefer a fully serviced pitch as with inclement weather, dragging aqua rolls and waste water around, in not great fun.

We use a CL south of Gloucester which has fully serviced pitches. Probably spend Christmas there this year instead of being at the hospital like last year.

Bracelands in the Forest of Dean is beautiful when the trees are turning. We’ve spent two New Years there too.

Plas Farm Betws yn Rhos North Wales. (Not far from Abergele and Gwyrch Castle where I’m a celebrity was done. )
Big fully serviced hard standing pitches. Lovely heated toilet blocks. Friendly family owners. Pub and shop in Betws yn Rhos village, about 15 min walk away.
Open all year.

Our favourite site is Channel View,Brean.(in the paddock area).
Toilets,showers,potwash and thats it.
Oh......the view across 3 miles of beach whilst sat in our van😊
25 miles from us.
Perfect for a long weekend.

Problem is that afterwards the caravan requires a good wash to get rid of salt. A nice site although we have never used it. Have used Warren Farm and Northam Farm.
BTW the ice cream at the National Trust cafe down the road is excellent!

We went to Bracelands a few years ago when we had the dogs.
A really nice site and there was a rally of old vintage cars at the bottom of the field.20130610_200421.jpg

Just had a look at this site it looks fantastic :)
We enjoyed it for the spacious site and the easy access to good walking trails. There’s the Forest Holidays visitor reception that does pretty good food, and two nice pubs nearby. My family have one of the large Forest lodges booked for next May. Really nice surrounding area for trips out.

We had paid for a seasonal commencing April 2020. And we know what happened to that initiative.👎

I really cannot understand why people are booking 6 months ahead for pitches or sites, unless you only have those times for children or Grand kids, I only think about a week ahead, for going away.
Or as BB says , each. !!!

It was actually better when I was working a 6 x 6 roster, every 12 weeks we would go to France for a month. Winters were mostly Montreuil Sur Mer. A great town . Lovey pitch near the river with some great French and Dutch friends. All on seasonal pitches. ( not us)

Ditto, seemed to go awry when we bought a new Pageant and Disco for my third our retirement in 2005/6.

We had no choice other than to book our pitch in Cornwall for June 2022 when we were there last July.
There are 8 fully serviced grass pitches on our favourite site with sea views, good facilities, far enough away from the kiddy winks playground but close enough to the shower block and bar.
There are plenty of other pitches available on that particular site, but we prefer to book one of the aforementioned 8 FSPs.
Not unnaturally competition for these sought after pitches can be fierce, so we book on the first available booking date for the following year and some of the 8 are already booked when we get through.
The early bird and all that.....
