Multi-million pound site investments for Club
The Caravan and Motorhome Club is investing over £5 million in its sites network.
As part of the investment plan, upgrades include bringing 100Mb broadband to 70% of its campsite network, facility block upgrades, new pitches and resurfaced roads among other things. Much of the work has been completed but some work is ongoing and visitors may be affected.
The Club's Brighton site is getting new pitches, while Coniston Park Coppice sees upgrades to services across the site. River Breamish is getting extra pitches as well as the conversion of some grass pitches to hardstanding. Teesdale Barnard Castle will be getting extra pitches and improvements to the dog walking area, while pitches at Moreton-in Marsh are being upgraded and new serviced pitches will be installed. Finally, grass pitches at Wharfedale will be upgraded to hardstanding.
Affected areas will be fenced off to prevent disruption to visitors and we’ve also been told that over 40 other campsites will see a range of upgrades and maintenance projects.
Harvey Alexander, Director of Marketing and Membership Services at the Caravan and Motorhome Club, said: “When scheduling the developments, we listen to feedback from members to make sure we’re investing in the right campsites at the right time. I am confident that this latest programme of upgrades will mean the campsites are in top condition for what will undoubtedly be a busy season.”
The Club has also partnered with BT to upgrade the WiFi on many of its campsites. Currently 149 of its sites have WiFi and 107 of these will see the provision upgraded to 100Mb during 2021, with prices frozen for this year.
