The sites in the AA Caravan and Camping Guide 2016 have all been visited by one of the AA’s qualified Campsite Inspectors to look at touring pitches, facilities and hospitality before grading the site from one to five Pennants, including the Gold Pennants awarded to the best parks. 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.
For those who like a little style while camping, the 2016 guide not only carries a ‘Glamping’ symbol for sites that offer the glamping experience, but also editorial features on Glamping and how it has evolved and A Beginners Guide to Camping, with some great tips and advice for people trying camping for the first time.
The AA Caravan and Camping Guide is available from The AA Shop for £12.99 and as a free app for iPhone, iPad and Android.
