Boom in adult only motorhome/caravan sites

More and more campsites are operating an adults-only policy due to a  rise in the number of couples who are seeking a child-free break

The Best of British (BoB) holiday parks group has reported that 11 of its 50-strong members are now enforcing the policy.

BoB says its main customer base consists of teachers and childcare professionals who’d prefer not to be reminded of their jobs while on holiday.
 
One such adults-only campsite is Chew Valley Caravan Park in Bishop Sutton in Somerset, which has been a child-free environment for almost 25 years.
 
Site owner, Keith Betton, says its appeal covers all age groups saying: “Being adults-only is a perfect complement to the peace and quiet which people come here to enjoy.
 
"Many of our guests work in occupations which involve children, and they tell us that parks like ours are the one way they can guarantee a total switch-off when they escape for a holiday."
