We have stayed on a variety of sites since we started touring; big, small, expensive and cheap!

Initially we thought we needed sites with full facilities, such as hard standings and toilets, however experience has taught us that we actually prefer small, quiet basic sites to relax on, as far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life as possible; not that we are subject to too much bustle since retirement, but it also doesn’t seem too sensible to pay for site facilities that we neither use or need. So, for us, it has to be small CL or CS sites as far from the madding crowds as possible. 

By way of a memorandum for us, as well as providing information for you, I list a selection of sites that we have used. We have given each a subjective rating, on a 1 to 10 scale based only on our personal satisfaction feelings, the higher the number, the more we enjoyed the site and the area. Those I have reviewed are shown in bold type, and are hyper-linked to a review page:
