The best guide was the Big Pitch Guide but unfortunately that's no longer being produced which is a pity but there you go. Like a lot of RV owners we've a few favorite sites and I've found the forum to be very helpful in personal recommendations when I've asked. We're also members of the C&CC and have used a number of their sites. Just ring the site and ask their advice. Some will turn you down flat but we've been pleasantly surprised at the response from most.
Regards Doug

I keep pressing escape but I'm still here

Hi Rossini, there appears to be a couple of UK RV forums BOTH have RV friendly site maps or data bases, unfortunately one sites map system appears to be broken :( the other site as just changed its website software / layout and appears to be having a few technical problems with its RV friendly sites map. :(

Thank you for your reply, I will continue to search and ask around. Our Country Coach is the same length
as yours so we have the same requirements. I am looking for a site along the Coast from Brighton to
Chichester that is open all year, Any Ideas ?
Best Regards
Pete

Hi Pete, what length are you and will you be towing? Just checked my American RV magazine link and they have a large list of both UK & other ( European) site but they are ONLY a link to the sites no information is given as to the maximum size the site can accomodate :( Have you any area / location in mind?

Hello Mick,
Firstly thanks for your reply, Need to visit Ma in Law at Worthing so will start with the suggested site in Brighton if available.
Really just need to have some idea what is available for when we head off. For example is there anything around the O2 Arena
in Greenwich ? If you can give me the link to the site I will have a look.
Our Country Coach is 38ft and we will not be planning to tow at this stage, Maybe after Xmas when we head off to Europe.
Cheers
Pete

Hi.Pete
Re booking at Brighton, sooner rather than later, once the pantomime and ice shows kick in a lot of performers and cast members

plus visitors stay on that site.

Cheers.

Roy :D
