Camping has come a long way; gone are the days of pitching your tent in a bare field and counting the minutes until you can head home again. As camping has become big business the facilities on offer at sites has grown and nowhere more so than with Canvas Holidays. You’ll find sites with poolside entertainment; activities from windsurfing, canoeing and jet skiing on the beaches or lakes, to football tournaments and films to sit back and enjoy in the evenings.  Keep the boredom at bay by choosing a site that has entertainment laid on in the high season (July and August), making use of the interactive holiday finder on their site to get you exactly what you’re looking for. Older kids will enjoy the extra activities laid on just for them as well as the chance to hang out with other like-minded teens. 

Whatever your budget you’ll find something that suits you with a wide choice of accommodation. Camping aficionados can choose from maxi tents to the luxury safari tents; plumbed in and offering shower, sink and toilet facilities, as well as a lounge and kitchen/dining area. The beds are made up for you when you arrive so you can all crack on with having fun. If you’re looking for something a little more like home from home you can opt for an apartment, a spacious mobile home or gorgeous wooden lodges. 

All accommodation is fully equipped so packing doesn’t need to be a chore and you’re even given a garden patio set and a charcoal barbecue (where rules allow them) so you can enjoy the al fresco living.
