    We have joined the CC and this weekend stayed for the first time on one of their sites. It was imaculate but totally soulless. All the vans were parked inline, a regulation distance from the next. No hedges divided the pitches and the site was totally without character.
    Are CC sites aways like this?

    I'm sorry to say.......yes they are. Due to rules and regulations all the sites have to have a certain distance between vans and hedges take too much looking after.

    Yes, 6 months in prison if you are more than 2 inches out of line. After 25 years of being a member did not renew this year.

    No, no, no and no again!

    Get yourself to the CC site at Kendal. In the grounds of an old gunpowder factory, the pitches are in small enclosures on different levels.

    CC Chirk is lovely and arranged in 3 circular tiers.

    I'll think of some more beauties in a bit :)

    Some commercial sites and CCC sites are as soulless as a gravel carpark.

    If you want chaos and less gaps in between Moho's your in the wrong country @Barge Safran, you need to be in France or Spain. Just had three weeks of "closeness" :eek::LOL::LOL:

    Great aren't they...! A standard you can rely on...(y)

    Not all the same....

    I paid for my 6m of comfort and security and love the peace and quiet and don't want anyone coming on my patch and quaffing some inaudible small talk....:cool:

    They are what they are. Very useful for an overnight stay when travelling in the UK but I've not really ever come many of their sites I would want to spend long at.

    Never mind that, were the showers hot and powerful, were they clean. Get you priorities right.

    Try here, not CC, lovely hedges.........

    Recently stayed on CC site at Whitewater at Stockton on Tees. Site was immaculate, wardens were very friendly and helpful.
    People around us were friendly and talkative.
    Showers and toilet faclities were superb.
    Overall a great stay

    the 6m/20ft rule is very important if you have ever seen a caravan go up in flames in 2 minutes

    I've never been to one of their sites that I would willingly visit again.

    We pretty much only use Britstops in the UK now and much prefer crossing the channel so we can use our MH without having loads of pointless rules and regulations imposed on us.

    Try Lower Wensleydale CC site at Leyburn, Yorkshire. You couldn't see a straight line anywhere. Very nice site!

    No not all CC sites are like that. As for the naysayers, it's like saying all Aires are like car parks.
