Autumn deals! Pitches from £5.76pn and a week in Cornwall for £56
The sun, it still doth shine! We see no reason why the end of the school summer hols means the end of hols for the year – especially for those without kids who are likely to be gleefully frolicking on empty beaches in Cornwall as we type.
Continue to put real life off well into autumn, we say: the warm weather is set to hold, and over 630 of our sites are staying open until the end of October to help you forget about work and all those other annoying commitmenty-type things. And if, like us, you fell to the ground in a dead faint after checking your bank balance (lack thereof) post-summer holidays, we have autumn deals of up to 60% off, including a week in Cornwall for less than £60 (a week! Less than £60!) and three nights in Spain from £113.

It’s a green site with solar-heated (and free) hot water, new individual wetroom showers and designated disabled wetroom bathroom with walk-in bath – if you want to stay green and ditch the car, a bus goes to Kingsbridge a short stroll from the park, from whence you can journey on to Dartmouth, Totnes, Plymouth and Exeter.
