The Caravan Club has announced three new additions to its sites network in 2012.

The beautiful Strathclyde Country Park Club Site, situated in the breathtaking Strathclyde Country Park only 12 miles from Glasgow, will be an open-all-year site.

Renovation work on the site, which was an existing touring park acquired by The Club, started at the beginning of January and should be completed by the end of October meaning the site will join the network towards the end 2012. The new site will have 107 all-weather touring pitches – including 12 service, 10 enlarged and 50 tent pitches, providing nearly 135,000 extra bed nights per year for members and non-members alike. Conveniently located near the M74, the site also boasts 296 storage bays.

Strathclyde Country Park is one of Scotland’s most popular visitor attractions and will be hosting the Common Wealth Games in 2014. There is loads to see and do at the park, including sailing, kayaking, water skiing, rowing, country walks, plus bike and boat hire. Visitors can partake in every outdoor activity imaginable from kite flying to bird watching, geocaching to sunbathing, it really is a beautiful outdoor space for all to enjoy. The new site will also be near to Scotland’s largest family theme park.

Once development work is complete, Strathclyde Country Park Club site will have first-rate facilities including, two toilet and shower blocks, an information room, a dog walk, cycle racks and a children’s play area plus a popular family restaurant just a few minutes’ walk away.

There will also be two new Affiliated Sites joining The Club network during 2012. Royal Vale Caravan Park, situated in the small village of Allostock, in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire countryside, just 9 miles from junction 19 of the M6 Knutsford.

The site opened on 7 February and facilities at this site include all weather pitches, electric hook up at 16 amps to all pitches (additional daily fee), water hook up and grey waste up to all pitches, centrally heated toilet and shower block, laundry facilities, chemical toilet and waste water disposal points, high speed internet access, disabled facilities for wheelchair and walking disabled and dogs are welcome.

Wagtail Caravan Park, situated within a beautiful country park in the Lincolnshire countryside, six miles from Grantham, 12 miles from Newark and one a half miles from the A1. This Open-All-Year site is perfectly placed for many local tourist attractions such as Belton House and the historical market town of Newark. The park is also proud to have been awarded a David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award that recognises holiday parks for their efforts in protecting and enhancing Britain’s environments.

Facilities at this site include 16 amps electric hook up, a mix of hard standing and grass pitches, new centrally heated utility block, disabled facilities for wheelchair and walking disabled, laundry room, an adult only area on site and dogs are welcome. Electric motorcycles are available for hire on site and two private well stocked fishing lakes (permits available for hire by members).

Lawrence Bate, The Club’s Director of Marketing, says, “The addition of these sites to the network is very exciting for The Club which is continually striving to provide more pitches in more locations for its members and British tourers.”
