Hi

Can anyone recommend a seasonal pitch for 2018 either in Lancashire, North Wales or Anglesey that they have been on this year. Preferably one near the coast and the likely prices for 2018. Need to make more use of my van but going to the storage yard, hooking up, towing etc is getting a bit of a chore so am looking at siting it. Plus on a more general non geographic basis for those of you that do have a seasonal pitch can you give me some indication of how far you travel from your home to the site would be useful plus how often you get to use it. Many thanks. Gerry

We are on a seasonal pitch at Bala. We pay 1700 (including electricity) from mid-March to end of October. Thats a pretty average sort of cost. And they store it over winter for 150 - the Snowdonia National Park won't let tourers be sited all year.
Its just under 90 minutes from home. Because we are retired we use it lots - at least a couple of nights a week. We think it is pretty decent value for the amount of time we are in it.

We are on a site in Carlisle, takes us about 1 hr 40 mins to get there, but we don't go fast, helps with fuel! but once there nothing to do, except plug in and put the kettle on. We pay 950 a year, electric is extra, they also have storage for the winter which is 160.
We got to the point in our last storage place, that it was such a pain to get to down a real pot holey track that it took ages to get up n down it and we're paying over 400 for that, we weren't using the van much.
So we figured to get away from that, seasonal was the way to go, but we can a,so go off site for main holidays too!
This was our first year and we hope to get pitch for next year too, the travelling hasn't put us off, as we aren't hitching and unhitching and taking an hour before you even get going anywhere, it's been great for us!

Hi
we were 5 years on a seasonal at Lowther Holiday Park, Penrith. When I was working we managed every other weekend, holidays and Bank Holidays. Once I retired we used to do a week about - one in the van, one at home.
Our journey was 104 miles and took anything from 1hr 40 to over 3 hours on a BH weekend!
We used to put the awning up in March and take it down in November and had sofa, table and chairs, TV and fridge freezer (this all went in our little shed at the end of the season). Seasonal pitches are about 2k from March until mid Nov and electric is extra - it is a lovely site though! Your van can stay on the pitch through the winter if you wish at no extra cost.
We sold up last season and bought a static there.
Good luck with your search.
