Top sites for summer sun and family fun
When you head off on holiday, there’s nothing like a little sunshine to really top off a great break away. While we can’t guarantee you the British weather, we can assure you of a top-quality campsite in the perfect location for when the sun does make an appearance.
Whether you’re looking for sunny days at the beach, or want to bask in the sunshine on a relaxing, rural site, we’ve detailed some ideal Premier Parks for summer sun below. After all, it doesn’t get much better than a barbecue back at your pitch at the end of a warm day, does it?
