Camp Katur, North Yorkshire


UK's luxury campsites unveiled as AA Caravan and Camping Award winners announced

9 November 2022

The leading campsites and caravan parks in the UK have been revealed today, as featured in the AA Caravan and Camping Guide 2023, out now from AA Publishing.

Award winners - the best sites

Amongst those celebrating is Silverdale Caravan Park in Lancashire, the AA Campsite of the Year for England and Overall winner.

A rise in eco-friendly camping has shown holidaymakers are looking for environmentally friendly destinations. Camp Katur, winners of the AA Glamping Site of the Year, focuses on upcycling materials with fire pits created from washing machine drums and galvanised bucket washbasins.

Among the regional winners is Beaconsfield Holiday Park, winner of AA Campsite of the Year Heart of England, a purpose-built, family-run park on farmland in open countryside which offers quality in every area.

Brand new guide

All winners will feature in the 55th edition of the AA Caravan & Camping Guide. All the destinations featured in the guide have been inspected and rated by AA professional inspectors, grading sites from one to five Pennants, based on their facilities and hospitality. Each entry within the guide includes location, ratings, contact details, directions, prices, opening times, facilities, and a description to help holidaymakers select the right site for their needs.

Mirroring the increasing popularity of luxury camping, this year’s winners include glamping facilities, including yurts, shepherd’s huts, and vintage caravans. The winners include a focus on family friendliness, eco-friendliness, fishing, best views and sites for lake lovers.
