1. Pitch with a view
Touring pitches don't get better than this sea view pitch at Highlands End Holiday Park in Dorset. Wake up to stunning vistas over the world-renowned Jurassic Coast! Many of the coastal holiday parks within the Best of British group have sea view pitches available (you may need to request these at the time of booking). Watch the sun set on the horizon as you sit back and reminisce on a day spent exploring the local area.
Spectacular views are not restricted to our holiday parks by the sea. Some of our countryside caravan and camping parks have stunning pitches overlooking rollings hills, and picturesque farmland.
2. Quirky glamping accommodation
Glamping has grown increasingly popular in recent years and we expect this trend to continue into 2021. There is a wide range of quirky accommodation available to choose from at Best of British, so there are plenty of options if you're looking fo a unique place to stay. We love this picture of the brightly coloured Romany Caravans at South Lytchett Manor Caravan and Camping Park. Each of the wagons was hand built by local craftsman and painted using traditional techniques. Other glamping accommodation includes camping pods, shepherds huts, glamping lodges and safari tents.
3. Wonderful wildlife
The Best of British Parks are set in secluded locations, which makes them a haven for wildlife. Indulge in a spot of nature watching during your holiday - you never know what you might be lucky enough to see! Some of our previous guests have caught a glimpse of unusual butterflies, red squirrles, deer and many species of birds. This fantastic picture was snapped at Waterrow Touring Park near Taunton in Somerset and is a perfect example of the magical sights on offer at our caravan and camping parks. Waterrow is an adults only touring park is situated on the banks of the River Tone. There's a fantastic country park affording guests further opportunities for wildlife watching just a short walk away.
4. Fun-filled adventures
A Best of British site is the perfect base from which to explore the local area and embark on new adventures together. This picture of a family returning from a trip on their dinghy at the beach next to Brighouse Bay Holiday Park in Dumfries and Galloway immediately caught our eye. You can see the joy on their faces and we're sure this is a memory they will cherish for years to come. A selection of our award-winning parks have family-friendly activities available on-site. For instance, Brighouse Bay offers an a variety of outdoor pursuits, including include golf, pony trekking and fishing
5. Quality family time
Holidays are about spending quality time as a family - something we've all missed dearly this year. A break at a Best of British park offers an escape from the hustle of daily life and the opportunity to slow down, relax and enjoy each others company. With such beautiful grounds on offer, you won't need to venture far. Simply spending time together as you prepare the BBQ or play board games late into the evening will feel like a welcome relief after months apart. For us, this photo of a family holidaying at Wooda Farm Park perfectly demonstrates what camping holidays are about - indulging in the hobbies you love, in the place you love, with the people you love.
6. Spectacular facilities
You don't have to venture to far flung foreign destinations to enjoy a day lounging by the pool. A number of the Best of British Parks have indoor and outdoor pools, providing hours of entertainment for guests young and old. We're sure you'll agree the water looks incredibly inviting in this snap of the leisure facilities at Polmanter Touring Park. Lay back on one of the sun loungers with a good book in hand and enjoy the best of the Great British summer. We think there's no better feeling! Some of the BoB parks even have waterslides, splash parks and inflatables to play with!

As you will see from this arial photo of Home Farm Caravan Park in Wales, touring pitches and the surrounding lawns and hedge rows are kept in immaculate condition.
