Motorhome Camp Site Reviews

One of the most wonderful things about modern motorhomes is that you don’t need to stay on camp sites if you don’t want to. Indeed a self contained motorhome can survive quite merrily without needing an electric ‘hook up’. But for many of us, the real joy of a motorhome holiday is staying on a camp site. Camp sites have all the facilities you want and larger ones have bars, restaurants, childrens play areas and swimming pools.

This section also includes motorhome stopovers. Many pubs now allow motorhomes to stay overnight, some for a small fee and some for free in return for your custom.

We would love readers to contribute to this section, so please get in contact with us if you would like to write a review of any camp site you have been to.

La Garangeoire, Vendée, France thumbnail

This is a beautiful camp site situated in 200 hectares of nature reserve but only 15 minutes drive to the nearest beach. The site runs a shuttle service to the beach at a cost of 4€ return, for those not wanting to move their motor home, which we thought was a great idea! There are [...]

I had another look at the website that I mentioned the other day. I think the website itself needs a bit more sorting out to be able to get to the information you need quickly. The app, well at least the iPhone app, seems to a better job as it uses your phone’s GPS [...]

If you intend to travel around the UK quite a lot with a motorhome, caravan or even a tent, you may be able to save money by joining one of the camping clubs. There are really only two choices and these are: ‘The Caravan Club‘and ‘The Camping and Caravanning Club‘. There isn’t really much to [...] Review Review thumbnail is a clever little website that does two things: it provides you with somewhere to stop with your motorhome for absolutely nothing and at the same time helps bring business to pubs that they would otherwise not have. The basic idea behind the website is to encourage you to become a member for £30 [...] Review Review thumbnail

The website is a site developed by three French guys to help people find somewhere to park their motorhome either for free, or very cheaply. The website is very clever in the way that it is being created by its users. What they have done is produced a smart phone application so that people [...]

The Camping and Caravanning Club

The Camping and Caravanning Club thumbnail

The Camping and Caravanning Club is an alternative to The Caravan Club. As you would guess by the title they are not quite so caravan-centric as The Caravan Club. Indeed if you have a tent, you are more than welcome too. However if you are on this motorhome site we hope you are thinking about [...]

The Caravan Club

The Caravan Club is well worth joining if you intend on spending more than 1 week a year in a motorhome or a caravan. The real advantage is their network of small Certified Location campsites or CLs as they are usually referred to. These CL sites are just for 5 motorhomes and/or caravans and have [...]
