Hard hat on but there was about a month last year when the sites began opening at the beginning of July before the tent brigade started turning up on mass (kids, noisy BBQs etc... you get the picture!).
It was actually a really nice period to be away and I think the 5 weeks from the 12th April will be very similar.
I’m raring to go as soon as possible.

I know, I’m a miserable old sod smile!

Totally agree with you, not the miserable old sod bit, never go to sites in school holidays.

Just been looking at booking for a week in April, CL offering money back or put it on hold, well at £11 a night that seems a no brainer smile!

Our little March trip obviously cancelled but still hopeful for our April & May ones.
We also try to avoid school holidays (we're not really grumpy old grouches but nowadays like a bit of peace and quiet rather than kids racing around our van, noisy BBQs etc) so opt for adult only sites at those times....

Warners Hotels and seaside resorts are very good Adult Only sites! (and on rare occasions even cheaper than parking a van on someone's grass up! )

Another statement  today following latest Welsh update...

Wales

[size=30]Following the Welsh Government's recent guidance, we are planning (subject to Welsh Government confirmation) to reopen all our Club campsites in Wales from 27 March 2021 for people who live in Wales only. We are however awaiting further clarification on the use of communal areas and shared facilities (including toilet blocks and showers) and will advise on this as soon as possible.

If you have a booking at one of our Club campsites in Wales for dates up to and including 26 March 2021 please cancel or amend your booking for free via our website or our UK Sites Booking App.
For any bookings with our Certificated Locations (CL) or Affiliated Sites (AS), please check directly with those campsites.
For further information about the current guidance in Wales including local and cross border travel restrictions, social distancing, rules on overnight stays and the use of shared facilities, please visit [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/size]






[size=30]And latest statement  from C&CC[/size]



Issued 12th March 2021

Our Club Site network is currently closed.


With the latest Coronavirus restrictions all our Club Sites in England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are closed. Any opening dates for these sites will be reviewed in-line with latest guidance. We are planning to open our full site network as soon as we are able and are currently working towards the following:

England: Our earliest opening date will be the 12th of April. We are currently clarifying guidance but it is likely that as part of this opening phase we will not be able to open facility blocks. Campers will need to have their own self-contained toilet facilities, until the 17th of May at the earliest.

If we are unable to open facilities until the 17th of May, then our Ready Camp Safari Tents and Pods will not open until this date, again at the earliest. Once we know more we will be in touch with those with affected bookings.

Scotland: Our earliest opening date will be the 26th of April, and we are awaiting confirmation of this date. There is likely to be further level 3 restrictions in place after this date and the next review is due on the 15th March.

Wales: Our earliest opening date will be the 1st April, this will be for campers from one household with self contained facilities and only for those visitors who live in Wales. Sites will not be able to take visitors from England, Scotland or Northern Ireland until travel restrictions have been lifted in those countries.

Northern Ireland: Restrictions have been extended until 1st of April and we are awaiting further details, which are due to be announced on the 18th of March.

Please note, all dates are still subject to official confirmation.


If you have a booking affected by our later opening this season or national travel restrictions you don’t need to do anything, our team will be in touch via email to automatically offer a full refund and ask you to re-book for later in the year.

Thanks Paul: have just booked Gowerton from 27 March, for a few nights' shake-down before a longer trip (to England, I hope) at the end of April. Can't wait to go - esp if the Kingsbridge Inn does takeaways!

I've just managed to move my April booking at Brecon because  I've just had my 2nd vaccination date brought forward (it was originally  on the May BH). Using the app I couldn't get 4 nights together, not even 3 so I was going to cancel but rang the booking centre and lovely  lady managed to get 3 nights together which will do. Looking at the monthly calendar  for Brecon there is hardly any availability  right through to October , only an odd night here and there , its going to be a busy season.

Gosh - who'd have thought that that large Brecon site would be so booked already!  Even Gwern y Bwlch already has some fully-booked nights.

By the way, in the unlikely event that you don't know, there's a superb site (commercial) about 2 miles out of Brecon, called Pencelli Castle. It's on the Brecs and Mon canal, and you can walk / cycle the towpath into Brecon. The canal-side Red Lion does good food - it's almost opposite the site.

Thanks, thats good to know, we like Brecon. Have also used the other CAMC Brecon site called Aberbran, a bit further out, no toilet block and run by volunteers, much cheaper than Brecon Beacons but a trade off for location and facilities.

During the brief exeat (quick getaway) we were allowed last year we went round South Wales. Stayed in a superb, free, virtually empty car park in Swansea and got the buss pass bus into town and looked round. Free water and toilet disposal there. Then we went on to RSPB sites and because we are members it cost us nothing to stay overnight there.
I was wondering if I should take the plunge and join one of the camping clubs but I am afraid it will be a waste of money if they are all going to be full up. Looks as if the only places I will be able to stay this year will be free ones. allthumbz I somehow doubt the French will allow us over there, as we aren't one of them any more. They'll find a Covid excuse of course.
Imagine if you had used your savings / taken out a loan to buy a new motorhome last year. You were thinking of going away in it and joined one of the camping clubs thinking that's what you do, join, plan a trip, book sites . . . . . oops they are all full. What do we do now? Go to France? no, they have a covid excuse for not allowing us to go . . . oops . . . .errr . . .  well it's a driveway holiday outside our house then . . . . censored!

Hi - Did the RSPB site let you park up and stay overnight in their car park?  I was under the impression they didn’t allow that, even for members. I know when I contacted Bempton about it they said absolutely not!

Ah, you might have me there Paul. To be 100% honest, I can't remember. We might have walked. I would have to zoom in on Google Maps . . . ah, there it is but I don't know how to capture a google maps page and post it on a forum.

We stopped in the Recreation Ground car park on the A4067 and I seem to recall that we walked into town and went round the museum which was fascinating. They had all sorts of things that were made in Wales when I think the Government paid subsidies to Welsh manufacturing. I was very surprised to be reminded of all the things I knew when I was young that were made in Wales. One of the exhibits was a 'cast your own metal object' kit for boys, from the 1950's or 60's. Yes, you had to melt the metal and cast it, in the lounge fire I guess. Just imagine all the H&S people nowadays having a field day if that was available now.
I just include 'use the bus pass' occasionally in posts as a reminder to myself that as most of us have bus passes, we can park just outside a town and bus in. Thus I see no need to get a Euro6 camper. confused3

I have just been looking at club sites for further bookings and found hardly any sites showing fully booked dates as I found for Brecon on the CAMC app, so I've checked again for Brecon and the app shows almost fully booked through to October but  if you check through  the website and not the app, Brecon shows very few fully booked dates. So I would advise anyone wanting to book any site to use either the website or call-centre rather than the app.

A couple of their sites car parks were just open to the road so we just stopped there. If we are challenged I will just say that when we joined the person doing the joining forms said we could. No doubt they will say "what was their name?" in a typical 'I've got you there' manner as if I am supposed to take not of every name of every person I encounter. How am I supposed to know what their name was? And then this person will say 'well you're not staying here so buzz orff'. I will then drive out the gate and park there.

Tony,
If you scroll down that page to the heading "Latest Government Information" there are then four tabs, one each for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - clicking on those gives the relevant dates in each case, apart from NI where they are waiting for an update.

A further update for England and shared facilities.?.

England

We will be reopening all our Club campsites in England from 12 April 2021. Based on the latest Government guidance issued 8 April, we are pleased to be able to open toilets and shared washing and cleaning facilities excluding showers at Club campsites in England which have them, when we reopen on 12 April. 
We are working really hard to ensure as many campsites as possible can reopen these facilities on 12 April, however due to time constraints and operational issues not all campsites will have toilets and shared washing and cleaning facilities open on 12 April. Please continue to check our list of campsites below, where we will publish details very soon.  
Should this guidance change, we will advise members accordingly. The current provisional date for reopening showers is 17 May 2021, however, this will be dependent on further Government guidance. For the latest updates about our on-site social areas, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Sites may be open on 26th April, but Scottish Regulations prohibit entry into Scotland from the Common Travel area. ie England and Wales plus others. (Scots cannot travel outside Scotland either).
