    Following on from Captain pug wash (Stuart's) thread about what you don't like about a site, just wondering what makes you choose a site and return to it.

    For me

    1) Location

    2) Clean and Tidy.

    We like sites with really open views, rather than hemmed in woods.

    Free availability of wi-fi is always a bonus.

    Oh, and in summer we prefer to stay at naturist sites when we can... :Cool:

    Need to qualify that a bit - no feral kids...... I love kids but couldn't eat a whole one :Wink:

    Too many bad experiences of the badly behaved ones outweigh the well behaved ones, unfortunately

    Hot shower with endless water.

    Two come to mind. Grantown on Spey and Vila Sol, Benidorm.

    Constant supply of I candy with a swim up bar and a happy hour that starts at 12.00 till 01.00 :Rofl1:

    Or something that keeps my 3yo entertained until bedtime!

    Unless I'm looking in the wrong direction, Chris, they're nuns......... It's not a habit that I'd like to get into.

    Not being a lover of campsites there are only 3 which I return too on a regular basis, although I have used many. One in North Wales, one in Benidorm and one in Morocco. The one in North Wales for the scenery, the one in Benidorm for the company and because its traditional and the one in Morocco for the same reasons as above plus its cheap. Other than these 3 I have never been on a campsite I have wanted to return too.

    When on my own, in order to attract me to the possibility of maybe thinking about staying on a campsite it would need to have...

    A great location.

    Lots of space.

    Water.

    A drive over black water disposal place.

    Free and fast wifi.

    Great views.

    No fees.



    If I am with my Princess then it is simple.

    All the campsite needs is her approval... :thumb:


    JJ :Cool:
