King’s Lynn Caravan and Camping Park in Norfolk has been named by Pitchup.com as its top-selling site in East Anglia for 2014.

The figures, compiled from Pitchup.com’s bookings for 1,050 camping and caravan sites throughout the UK and Europe, show that the park took 473 bookings in 2014 making it the top-selling site in East Anglia. King’s Lynn ranks first out of 53 East Anglia sites available to book on Pitchup.com, outshining its nearest competitor by 73%.

Dan Yates, founder of outdoor accommodation specialist Pitchup.com, commented: “East Anglia had 1m searches on Pitchup.com in 2014 proving it’s an area that is in demand. King’s Lynn Caravan and Camping Park consistently performs well with both users of the site and officials rating it highly.  They were one of the early adopters in the region, joining us in  2011 and it’s this longevity combined with their immaculate style and service that has made them so popular.”

King’s Lynn Caravan and Camping Park is a five-star site set within 10 acres of stunning Norfolk countryside.  The site benefits from a central location meaning that the facilities, shops and eateries of King’s Lynn are just a few minutes away, yet when visitors are on the site, its size offers a sense of peace and tranquility.  The site offers high quality communal facilities for guests and with staff speaking multiple foreign languages it appeals to visitors both in and beyond the UK.

Commenting on their success, Daniel Yallop, Site Manager at King’s Lynn Caravan and Camping Park, said: “A quality product, our guest’s enjoyment and efficient and friendly staff are our total priorities at the park and we believe it’s these qualities that have led us to be the top-selling site in our region on Pitchup.com.  We’ve really enjoyed working with Pitchup.com and are delighted that we have achieved this status.  Everything about the Pitchup.com site really works well for us, including the guest reviews which I’m sure have further assisted in driving bookings.  A huge thanks to the team at Pitchup.com.  We look forward to another successful year.”
