Caravan owners seeking a bargain trip this summer could be in for a treat after the Camping and Caravanning Club revealed it is set to reduce the price on standard grass pitches at its Camping in the Forest sites by a whopping 33 per cent.

Created in partnership with the Forestry Commission, the Camping in the Forest sites provide holidaymakers with some of the most idyllic camp settings seen across England, Scotland and Wales.

These sites also offer an impressive range of onsite activities including fishing, cycling, horse riding and forest walks, as well as the chance to see a variety of animals, birds and bugs in their woodland habitat.

Spencer Pettit, Camping in the Forest's business development manager said: "The school summer holidays are always a time of high expenditure but we hope our new promotion will give holidaymakers a chance to have fun with their family and friends in a woodland environment."

Available to all campers, the offer will run until Saturday September 1st and is available across 19 different sites.

The deal is welcome news to caravanners, who have so far faced a summer of unpredictable weather conditions, which has led to the closure of a number of popular sites.
