While self-contained holiday accommodation can open from April 12, most campsites will open no later than May 17, as many have shared facilities such as toilets.

The demand for stays in the UK has led to price increases in all types of accommodation, especially in popular holiday destination types.

Ed Bassett of Camptoo recommends that those struggling to get a campsite “look at areas that are not typically as busy, to help alleviate pressures on the environment and local resources.”

“Destinations such as Norfolk, Yorkshire and the South Coast all offer incredible countryside views and great campsites.”
