Good point, and well spotted, RTS5.

It does seem that they are more "holiday parks" than camp sites.

Definitely look at smaller sites, Trig. 10 to 30 pitches? Working (or non working) Farms. Little to no entertainment on site. (Certainly no club house, no pools, no water slides etc). Maybe the odd swing/slide for the kids. If this means driving 40 mins to the beach, so be it.

Many of these sites also tend to be a little more spacious, pitch-wise too. Maybe even a massive field where you can "pitch where you like" (No marked pitches immediately adjacent to each other).

Good luck.

Try Steadings Park in Newbourne , Suffolk. They have a 11pm Curfew and the wardens do a walkabout and enforce the rule

We do not always know whether a campsite is going to suit our needs or not, but we do try to do as much research as possible,
IE;- we check the distance and position on Microsoft AutoRoute.
Then we look up Google Earth and have a look at the site, relative distance from nearby towns, approach roads and lastly how big and laid out the site is.
If it passes muster on these, only then do we look at the site's website.
However we do read their blurb with a Pinch of Salt.

Whilst reviews by others are useful, what suits them may not suit us.
Often we have been caught out by "wonderful reviews" that failed to mention the motorway 70 yards away or the mainline railtrack that passes within 50 yards of my ear-drums.
Worst of all was the Borders site that was not only alongside the main London-Glasgow railway, but that there was an unmanned level crossing at the site entrance so every dammed train, day and night, be it coach or goods, blew their blasted horn as it approached the crossing.

HI Lobeydosser, I see you use the reviews to help research a site before a visit. Do you fancy submitting some reviews of the sites you have visited since 2009 please, this would be very helpful for others looking at visiting the sites you have stayed at.

I think that it would be helpful if there was a search criterion on here to allow a search for quiet campsites, or perhaps another for campsites where you can feel that you are pitched in relative isolation. I get completely that for some an enjoyable part of camping is the sociable aspect, but living in the suburbs, I sometimes want to camp without feeling that I have moved to a tented suburb for a week.

The reviews on here are very helpful, although it pays to read as many as possible to gain a complete flavour of the site. The difficulty is landing on the site review in the first place and Google seems to be the best way at the moment. I accept entirely that sometimes you just get lucky - or unlucky when a site is uncharacteristically noisy, or quiet.

We stay mostly on C &CC sites as you know what you are getting, clean facilities and quiet, may be a little more expensive but worth it in my opinion

I feel for the OP, I find other people's noise incredibly stressful, and selecting a suitable site where the noise will not be a problem takes an age!! We are also stuck to school holidays so i feel your pain.

However, don't dispair, you are guaranteed a perfect night's sleep here :) A truly wonderful small QUIET campsite with space and other considerate campers:

We tend to book either the small caravan club or c&cc sites, we have only ever been unlucky once and that was the site rather than rowdiness.

We make an exception for an exceptional site in Wales, it's not rowdy and has a lot of space.

We stayed at Woodhill Park near Cromer last summer for a week during school holidays. Night times were pretty quiet even though it was a busy site at the time. It's a fairly family oriented site......a bit too family oriented for us really because there were a lot of little kids, but that made it quiet in the mid-late evenings because they were mostly asleep.

I don't remember any really late night revellers - 11pm at the latest and very quiet from then until about 6am. Ask for a pitch away from the main drag and pay for a premium to get a bit more space between you and the next pitch (pitches up in the top field have a nicer view too).

We have just had the local Beer festival on in the Eskdale valley and our campsite is bang in the middle of all the pubs that took part....over 300 people on site with beer and still no noise at night....no sillyness no hassle to us the owners...no sick....its all about respect on a campsite when camping and treating people the same way as you would like to be treated.

Its our 8th year with the Boot Beer Festival and long may it continue,we are a CCC franchise site and we encourage all groups/birthdays/bikers/DoF groups/schools.
