Discover a different kind of vacation; discover a different kind of you!



Discovering the great outdoors in a Motorhome is so rewarding in many ways. Whatever your destination or type of vacation, using campsites during your journey is a must and comes with so many advantages.

Generally most sites allow you to check in from 8am to 10pm, if you are arriving out of hours be sure to arrange this beforehand so see if they can accommodate. On arrival, park up and head to reception where you will need to produce some identification. Here you will be given a map to select your pitch, we advise you to have a quick walk around before you decide as you will get a better feel for where the toilet, showers and facilities are.

Don’t forget to take into consideration the size of your Motorhome when choosing your pitch, look for how accessible it is; are there low hanging tree branches or tight corners to manoeuvre around? These are all important things to take into consideration, accessibility even more so especially if your itinerary includes days out in the Motorhome.

So you’ve found the perfect pitch, notify the reception of the number but before driving in to park up and remember to take into account the time of year and where the sun will be. This will determine which way round is best to park and once parked a member of staff will shortly arrive to connect your electricity.

Now remember you’re not the only person wanting to enjoy the campground and its facilities! If you follow these Campsite etiquette tips not only will you get the most out of your stay, you will also become the perfect neighbour!

The do and the dont's when it comes to Campsite Etiquette!
  • No one wants to arrive at a campsite covered in litter, so if it’s your rubbish therefore it’s up to you to discard of it responsibly.
  • Before firing up the BBQ don’t forget to check with reception that this is allowed. This generally is permitted at most sites but there may be rules that apply, for example, designated areas. If you’re cooking outside with gas, no problem as this is always permitted.
  • Be respectful of space, most people using campsites enjoy the open road, the ability to be self-contained and like their own space so keep your distance when parking next to them.
  • Be friendly, just because you’re being respectful of their space doesn’t mean you can’t get to know your neighbours. Say hello, you never know you might strike up some lifelong friendships.
  • Noise restrictions normally apply after midnight at most campsites but this doesn’t mean you have a free pass to have a loud party or wake everybody up in the early hours of the morning with the morning radio.
  • Don’t cut corners so to speak and walk through neighbours pitches to get to the amenities; this is their outdoor living space so respect that. Make sure that children do not ride their bikes of play in these areas unless they have been invited to do so.
  • Never empty the toilet cassette or grey water tank on the pitch or any other place other than the designated areas. These will be clearly signposted and most highlighted on the campsite map.

The important thing to remember is that you are on someone else’s property and that the rules in place are there to enhance your stay and not inhibit it. It’s not just about the quality of your stay but to ensure that you and your family remain safe.

Atmospheres in campsites are friendly and relaxed so why not embrace this and enjoy the experience, make new friends and have a vacation within a vacation.
