Hi all

I wonder if any of you good people can help. My husband and I have left it extremely late to decide we want to camp for the Bank Holiday weekend. We've used UKCampsite many times, and have used on this occasion as a scatter-gun approach, emailing campsites for availability to house us and our tent. So far, our success rate has been poor, with all sites saying they are full.

We are not too fussy on which part of England we go to, as we like visiting new towns/sites, but are looking for journey of no more than approx 2.5 hours from our home in Hertfordshire.

Can anyone recommend a website that will make our search easier in terms of "late availability searches"?

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Here's hoping!

Don't forget to leave a review of the campsites you have visited this year or last!

Thanks for the reply, but EHU is a necessity.

Were in the same boat. So if you don't mind I'll be following this thread too. I've noticed some hefty prices though, so might go the following weekend and take a day off instead!

Hope you find somewhere to go.

Likewise, I've had some massive inflated quotes on those sites that still have availability.

I used the link that AdminBob posted and literally emailed 60/70 sites, the scattergun approach. Unsurprisingly many were full, but a good 15/20 sites could still accommodate our requirements.

And I'm pleased to say we've just booked a 2 night stay.

Thank you UKCampsite, we had pleasure in mentioning you when we booked.

Good luck kaffee.
