Date Posted: 14/08/2014

These six top campsites all accept group bookings, providing cost-effective, straightforward accommodation for your next trip.

1. Dreamy Hollow
Norfolk

Dreamy Hollow is set in seven and a half acres of woodland, located a ten minute drive from the north Norfolk coast.

Able to accommodate large groups, the site allows barbecues and campfires to gather your party together.

Anyone with an interest in military history will be interested in the site’s original three and a half acres of World War One trench network; while bird watchers can discover a ‘twitchers’ paradise as Dreamy Hollow offers easy access to national heritage coastline, RSPB Titchwell.

2. Chy Carne Holiday Park
Cornwall

Chy Carne Holiday Park offers free accommodation for the group organiser depending on the size of your party.

Onsite features include a marquee with a fully licensed bar, pizza takeaway, WiFi and electric hook ups for those looking for a bit of glam in their camping holiday. Campfires are also permitted in certain areas of the site.

3. Ruthern Valley
Cornwall

Located ten miles from the coast, Ruthern Valley is particularly good for groups looking to catch a wave or two.

There’s also lots of great fishing lakes and golf courses for all abilities nearby.

Ruthern Valley doesn’t have a pub onsite, however it does have a shop which sells alcohol, and for those seeking lively nightlife, Newquay is just 15 miles away.

4. North Lodge
Pembrokeshire

North Lodge campsite is set within the Welsh countryside overlooking the Presili mountains.

As well as being group friendly, this eco-campsite site is run organically and sustainably. There’s also an archery area plus short courses can be arranged with themes such as ‘how to live off the grid’. 

You can bring your own camping gear or stay in one of the site’s pre-erected tents, which are laid out with long glass and hedge areas for minimum overcrowding and maximum privacy.

5. Beech Estate Woodland Campsite
East Sussex

Open from April to October, Beech Estate Woodland Campsite allows open campfires, while its woodland location offers limitless walks and forest rises for mountain bikers.

The campsite is located within the 2,000 acre private Beech Estate, classified an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Campers have exclusive use of the woodland as there is no access for the general public.

6. Knaveswell Farm
Dorset

Whether you want to relax on the beach or enjoy some sightseeing, Knaveswell is located close to two beaches as well as the ruins of Corfe Castle.

Used to hosting large parties, groups can make campfires together and gather round to toast marshmallows or enjoy a pizza evening round the wood fired bread oven.

The site’s tents have three ‘bedrooms’ therefore maintaining a level of privacy, with proper beds for those who want to avoid roughing it on the floor.
