AA Caravan & Camping Awards 2018

The very best spots for British caravanning and camping were celebrated last night at the AA Caravan and Camping Awards 2018.

 Honoured with their coveted awards at a sparkling ceremony at the Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show in Birmingham, the winners across 12 categories included: Overall Winner and Campsite of the Year England: Old Oaks Touring Park, Glastonbury, Somerset; Campsite of the Year Scotland: Trossachs Holiday Park, Aberfoyle, Stirling; Campsite of the Year Wales: Red Kite Touring Park, Llanidloes, Powys.

Meanwhile, Woodside Bay Lodge Retreat, Isle of White, was awarded Holiday Centre of the Year, while Glamping Site of the Year went to Runach Arainn Glamping, Kilmory, Isle of Arran. Other categories included: Most Improved Campsite of the Year; Small Campsite of the Year; plus five AA Regional Campsite winners.

With Brexit and the fall in the value of the pound helping to contribute to the rise of glamping and luxury options available, camping and caravanning sites remain firm family favourites for holiday destinations. More and more sites now provide the likes of luxury yurts and huts in addition to the more traditional family holiday options.

Simon Numphud, Managing Director at AA Hotel & Hospitality Services said: “The winning caravan sites have all stood out for demonstrating an extremely high standard of customer service and experience combined with hard work and dedication, making them worthy winners of the AA’s prestigious Caravan & Camping Awards. Caravanning and camping are key to the British hospitality industry, and it’s important that we continue to support the sites located throughout the UK.”
