Camping and Caravanning Club confirms site opening dates

The Camping and Caravanning Club is opening two new campsites later in May.

Braithwaite Village Club Site in the Lake District National Park and Sherwood Pines Camping in the Forest site in Nottinghamshire are both due to open on 24 May (subject to Government restrictions).

Bookings are already open for both sites, which feature high-spec facilities that cater for everyone from families with their four-legged friends to backpackers and cycling enthusiasts.

“We are expecting a bumper year ahead and we’re looking forward to welcoming people back to our campsites when they reopen. Even in a really difficult year, we are especially proud to be opening two fantastic new campsites in tranquil locations that we know will be hugely popular for years to come,” said Sabina Voysey, Director General of The Camping and Caravanning Club.

“Despite reports that accommodation is selling fast, I can reassure people that there is still plenty of availability so there’s no need to panic. However, campers do need to think of locations away from the tourist honeypots and perhaps explore locations that are much closer to home – it’s amazing what gems you can discover on your own doorstep.”

Braithwaite Village Club Site is set in the village of the same name and is a few minutes’ drive from the market town of Keswick. The town can also be reached by bike within 20 minutes – there is a four-mile cycle route from the village centre heading east to Keswick that takes in Swinside Fell.

Plenty of walks can also be enjoyed locally too. The campsite, which was previously called Scotgate, was acquired by the Club in 2018 and has undergone an extensive refurbishment.

Meanwhile, Sherwood Pines is a brand-new campsite in partnership with Forestry England that joins 15 other sites in the Camping in the Forest network in England and Scotland.

The campsite is located within a large forest and is close to Forestry England's visitor centre, has a mix of standard grass and all-weather pitches plus electric hook-ups and a large amenity block. Campers can enjoy a range of walking trails and mountain bike routes direct from the site.

On Forestry England’s Sherwood Pines complex there is also a café, Go Ape centre, mountain bike hire and various other outdoor activities and events held over the year.
