I planned to have at least a 4-nighter over the Easter weekend well in advance, and booked my annual leave from work accordingly.

I shall go to the site straight after I finish work on Thu, and have taken Tue off.

The site I am going to is within 1.5h from work, and I do not mind having to pitch the tent up in the evening at dusk, as I shall have EHU and good light to help me.

Easter is normally the start of the camping season and coincide with school holidays, and a lot of sites have a minimum stay requirement to make the most of it, which is understandable IMHO.

If I have the choice, I would avoid Easter and other BHs, however, I now have less annual leave than I used to, cut from 30d to only 21d. In order to camp as often as I can, I would need to camp over BHs, hey ho!

A lot of sites have a minimum stay over bank holiday, but i have normally found it to be 3 nights.  Where abouts did you want to go? and what sort of site?

We'd be pleased to have you, we don't have a minimum stay at any time during the year and you can arrive and leave any day of the week all year

I've been considering going away during the Jubilee weekend but some of the sites have a minimum 5 night stay!

My husband works shifts and won't finish on the Friday until 10pm so we'd have to travel on the Saturday and come back on the Tuesday as neither of us can get the Weds off. So we'd only be able to do 3 nights as well.

Many sites seem to require 3 or 4 nights for a BH stay and one site I looked at wanted 5 nights as a minimum!!

A BH only gives you 1 extra day off so not quite sure how they can justify a 4 or 5 night minimum requirement?!
