Manor Farm Camping near Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire has been voted The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Best Certificated Site for 2018.

The awards are split into five categories and the winning sites are crowned based on the number of nominations they have received from Club members who camp on Certificated Sites.

A smallholding of ten acres, site owner Catherine Barker opened the site in 2014 to help others enjoy the surroundings she and her young family themselves enjoy. Catherine, a long-time motorhomer herself who has spent time touring France and enjoying rallies in Spain with the Club, said: “Since we opened we’ve worked hard to improve our site facilities.

“I have a young family and it’s been nice to get them involved in opening up our home for others to enjoy. We have a herd of pigs and dexter cows that campers are welcome to come and say hello to.”

Wi-Fi is now available at more than 85% of Club Sites and coverage and range has been extended at 29 Club Sites over the winter season.

The average Wi-Fi speed at the majority of Club Sites should, under usual circumstances, be perfect to shop online, search and book campsites or check emails and social media.

Bob Hill, Sites Director at The Camping and Caravanning Club, said: “We’ve invested in our on-site Wi-Fi over the winter in response to feedback from our members, who increasingly want to stay connected during their stay. 

“While we’re big advocates for disconnecting from technology when enjoying the great outdoors, we understand that sometimes a quick check of the emails or the ability to plan an onward journey can help make life a little easier.”

The Club has invested more than £500,000 in extending Wi-Fi coverage in recent months. Campers staying at Club Sites open year round, including Oxford and Canterbury will be able to enjoy free Wi-Fi from today and free Wi-Fi will be available at other Sites as they open in the coming weeks.
