Awards winners – the best sites
Amongst those celebrating is The Old Oaks Touring Park in Glastonbury, Somerset, winners of AA Campsite of the Year for England 2018 and Overall winner.
Brexit and the fall in the value of the pound has helped contribute to the rise of glamping and luxury options available, helping to ensure these 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.
Brand new guide
All winners will feature in the 50th anniversary edition of the AA Caravan & Camping Guide. Each of the 800 sites included in the guide have been visited by one of the AA’s experienced Campsite Inspectors, grading sites from one to five Pennants, based on their facilities and hospitality. Only the parks of the very highest standard are awarded the coveted Gold Pennant award. Each entry within the guide includes location, ratings, contact details, directions, prices, opening times, facilities and a description to help select the right site for your needs.
