We live in Leicestershire and are the proud owners of Monty the motor home.
We don't want travel more the 150 miles each way.
A hard standing pitch with electrics, heated toilet and shower block and of course dog friendly.
We like walking and exploring old towns.
Our ideal site would be within 1/2 a mile of a town with pubs within walking distance of the site (dog friendly of course)

Devizes has a dog field but dogs have to be kept on leads, I understand. It's alongside the Kennet and Avon canal and you can walk into Devizes in one direction (about 40-50 minutes there are buses also) In the opposite direction 25-30 minutes will bring you to the Barge pub.

There is the 3 Magpies pub right next to the site, too.

This is a lovely site, around 100 miles from you, by the canal, very nice pub on the doorstep and within walking distance of Slimbridge Wetland Centre.

Oops sorry for the misleading info
Tbh @Silver-Fox with the recent installation of hardstandings and all weather pitches at Tewkesbury club site we expected it to go all year.
Can't understand the reason for installing them and still close Oct/Nov as they were always fully booked when it was just grass.

We were at Devizes site last week, great location. Pub just outside entrance dog friendly. (Three magpies) walk along the canal either way, nice flight of locks (cain flight) or the other way towards another pub (Barge inn). Happy travels. (y)

Cherry Hinton C&MC site near Cambridge. Walks in the old Quarry next door. Bus to Cambridge.
Broadway C&MC site, nice site with the village only a short walk away. Lots of footpaths and great views. Lots of dog friendly shops and nice shops anyway. We spent a fortune there! ( this is the one I would recommend)
Bath Chew Valley, affiliated C&MC site, dog walk on site and local footpaths, they were putting Christmas decs up last week when we were there. Car hire on site, bus to Bath.

You need to be booking very soon though, the good sites that are open over Christmas will get booked early.
