    Welcome to the FUN Peter and Jacky.

    What part of the midlands are you collecting from? East or West Midlands? I've not camped in or near Blackpool so can't help with sites there.

    Hi and welcome to fun a brilliant motorhome forum, any questions you have ask away I am sure someone will help with the answers.
    One sight which is good is Kingsbury Water Park near Birmingham, it is a Camping & Caravan Club Site. It could be worth looking into Joining either CCC or CC. Happy travels.

    Welcome to the forum :welcomefunster:

    There must be about 12 Caravan Club CLs in the immediate Blackpool area.

    Welcome from us. We live in Plymouth (Currently in soggy Spain) & enjoy the experience.
    Where are you collecting the van from as that will narrow down the campsites etc.:Eeek:

    Hi and welcome, if you go to Blackpool try Hampton Road caravan park its up behind the pleasure beach in a social club car park it has all the facilities except a dump point for the waste tank so you need a waste hog or similar Cheers Rob W
