Introduction - Editor's picks for open-all-year sites

Campsites and touring parks that are open all year offer the perfect opportunity to enjoy a break away in the autumn and winter months, when places and attractions are generally quieter, but the scenery is just as beautiful.

Imagine the stunning colours of the countryside in autumn, or taking a wintry morning walk along a deserted beach - sounds like holiday bliss to us!

  Stroud Hill, Cambridgeshire

Stroud Hill Park is a family owned, award-winning, adults-only caravan touring campsite set in a rural location only 10 minutes from the historic town of St Ives. The tranquil, attractive, dog-friendly campsite provides a central Cambridgeshire location for touring caravans, motorhomes and tents.

There are 60 generously sized pitches (44 hardstanding & 16 grass) all with 16-amp electric, drinking water and grey water drain. Private fishing is available and the tennis court is also available exclusively to guests. At the heart of the campsite is the timber-framed barn accommodating the Barn Bar & Restaurant.

The facility also includes the luxury, award-winning toilets and showers with underfloor heating, indoor laundry and wash-up area. National Trust and English Heritage sites are in an abundance in the area, along with many countryside walks and the Pathfinder Way.

This wonderful site nestled beside the Gloucester-Sharpness Canal is one of our favourites for visiting the Cotswolds and stunning scenery of the Severn Vale. With 16-amp hook-ups available on hardstandings and grass pitches, the environmental, award-winning David Bellamy campsite is ideal for motorhomes, caravans and tents.

Adjacent is the dog-friendly Tudor Arms pub/restaurant, well known for its CAMRA awards, or you could sit beside the canal and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat from the Black Shed Café. There's lots to do within walking distance of this quiet countryside campsite, making it the ideal choice for those who prefer to pitch up and not drive.

Whilst on site, keep an eye out overhead for migratory birds making their way to the popular visitor's attraction, Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. Just a short walk from the campsite, the nature reserve is home to a vast array of birds.

Tucked away in a wooded valley, close to the picturesque Ilfracombe Harbour and Woolacombe beach. The site is a secluded retreat perfect for rest and relaxation. The valley is flanked on both sides by mature trees, with plenty of walks through the wooded areas. A bus stop can be found at the campsite entrance.

On the campsite you’ll find a shop, bar and restaurant area serving hot food, cream teas and drinks. The elevated position of the bar and restaurant gives great views over the ornamental lake. Hidden Valley has 100 pitches, most of which are hardstanding, all have hook-up and Premium pitches come complete with full services.

The amenities are underfloor heated with showers, a laundry and facilities for the disabled.
