Winners of Sites in Bloom awards announced by Caravan and Motorhome Club

Black Knowl Club Site in Hampshire and Englethwaite Hall Club Site in Cumbria have been announced as the winners of the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s ‘Sites in Bloom’ 2018 Awards. 

The campsite's floral displays were evaluated using criteria including layout and creative use of space, variety, innovation, flair and colour coordination, with particular attention being paid to economy and low maintenance. The geographical location of the site is also taken into account by the judges and the fact that plant species are chosen to suit the local environment.

Located within walking distance of the village of Brockenhurst in the New Forest National Park, the recently-redeveloped Black Knowl site is one of the Caravan and Motorhome Club’s most popular. The Hampshire site took the prestigious Sites in Bloom award in the ‘multi-couple’ category (a set of site wardens and a set of assistant site wardens). 

First place in the ‘single couple’ category (one set of site staff), the Englethwaite Hall site is a tranquil oasis scattered with rhododendrons from the garden of the former Old Hall. Located in the Eden Valley, the site is set against the backdrop of the High Stand Forest and is also a great place to spot red squirrels – the site even has its own viewing hide.

The Sites in Bloom Awards were introduced in 2003 by Caravan Club Life Member, the late Alan Payne OBE, who wished to recognise the creative and horticultural skills of site staff and volunteers, and to showcase their success in making their sites colourful and welcoming.
