Newly refurbished Camping and Caravanning Club sites to reopen

Bowness on Windermere site

Two Camping and Caravanning Club sites that have been closed due to refurbishment are now taking bookings for later in the summer.

More than £2.5 million has been spent on the sites at Bowness on Windermere in the Lake District National Park and Chertsey in Surrey.

Nicola Simpson, director of marketing and insight at the Club, said: “We’re really looking forward to welcoming campers to both our Chertsey and Bowness on Windermere sites, which have received a lot of care and attention in recent months.

“The sites boast high-quality facilities, making them perfect for much-needed holidays in lovely locations.”

Bowness on Windermere is the ideal location to explore the Lake District, situated as it is on the shore of the large body of water.

Families may wish to take advantage of its proximity to the World of Beatrix Potter while enjoying a caravan or motorhome holiday at the site.

It was previously known as Braithwaite Fold and has been under Club management since 2013.

The Chertsey Club Site has handy access to London and the Thames, offering entertainment for city lovers and those who enjoy activities based around the river.

It is one of the oldest sites in the Club’s network, having been acquired in 1927, but its facilities are now up to modern standards.

Visitors will be able to enjoy newly refurbished amenity blocks, a dog washing station, a children’s play area and brand new hardstandings.

Both of the sites will be open year round, allowing caravanners and motorhomers to visit during high and low seasons.

Stays at the Chertsey Club Site are available to book from August 22nd, while the Bowness on Windermere Club Site will open to the public a week later on August 29th.

The Camping and Caravanning Club was established in 1901 and has grown to include nearly 100 sites across the UK, encouraging members to take advantage of all the country has to offer.
