Not long till the discount for UKCampsite members runs out, so can I suggest have a look at the form (link in thread above) and see if we are an event that you and your family will enjoy. Many families, many visitors certainly do. Any questions ring Geoff and Pauline who look after all caravan/camping bookings on 07887 812106
