We feel we are sadly, coming to the end of our touring life and are looking for smallish sites close enough for us to be able to walk into a village or small town, where we can have a seasonal or half season pitch. If there was a bus stop close by that would also work for us. Any site must be dog and child friendly. We live in the West Midlands so maybe no too far north or the far reaches of Cornwall. Any suggestions, advice?

The Camping & Caravan Club have a few sites that offer storage and will tow your caravan to a pitch for you. I've seen empty caravans on pitches at some of their sites too.
I think a cheaper alternative would be to ask a small site for a year long pitch. There are legal limits to how long you can live in a caravan on one site but as far as I know leaving an empty caravan is not a problem.

-------------
We camped for many years, in 2012 we bought a caravan. In November 2019 we changed it for a new Elddis Avante 454.
We had to cancel many holidays in 2021 but managed 59 nights away. 2022 should be better with 100 nights booked so far.

Ynys Faig Farm seems to have a few seasonal pitches, although only open March-October.
