Every year, people who own touring caravans and motorhomes will rent seasonal pitches, enabling them to spend lots of time in the great outdoors. There are so many benefits to having a seasonal pitch and this can become a home away from home for the vast majority of the year. Whether you’re wanting a family holiday or a romantic getaway, your seasonal pitch will be your go-to place to visit whenever you want a break from day-to-day life. 


There are so many different campsites to choose from these days when you’re wanting to rent a seasonal pitch and due to the amount of time you’re going to spend here, it is essential to make sure that you’re booking the very best campsite. To help you make the best decision for your seasonal pitch, below are some essential factors to take into consideration. 


The location of the campsite 


Ideally, you want to choose a campsite that is fairly straightforward to get to, preventing any hassle with towing your caravan, but that is also set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Having a seasonal pitch in the middle of the stunning countryside is ideal when you’re going to be staying here multiple times throughout the year, and it will provide you with the relaxing escape that you need. 


The attractions in the surrounding area


Finding a campsite with seasonal pitches that is only a few minutes away from towns and cities is also useful, and this can help you to fill your days with fun activities. Having plenty of tourist attractions in the local area and also a range of different restaurants and cafes to visit will ensure that your seasonal pitch is the perfect holiday destination to create lasting memories. 


The facilities on-site 


Not all campsites offer the same facilities and it goes without saying that having certain facilities on-site is really convenient when you’re going to be spending a lot of time in your caravan or motorhome. Having access to things such as toilet/shower blocks and laundry facilities will be particularly useful, but you may also want to look for facilities like WiFi and play parks that will make your visits more enjoyable too. 


The cost of the seasonal pitch 


Depending on the budget you have in mind for your seasonal pitch, some campsites will be more suitable than others. However, don’t forget to look at how many months you have the pitch for as some may seem more expensive but they’re actually available for a longer period of time. Always double check any special offers too, some campsites will offer one month free.


The type of pitches available


Commonly, there will be a range of different pitches available on campsites, including both hard standing and grass pitches, and different people have different preferences in this regard. No matter which type of pitch you would like to stay on, always look for a campsite with seasonal pitches that have electric hook-up. You can guarantee that electricity will be useful to have when you plan on spending a lot of time here. 


The level of security on-site 


It can be easy to overlook, but when you’re going to be keeping your caravan or motorhome on a seasonal pitch for several months, the campsite’s security needs to be suitable. To prevent any worry when leaving your caravan or motorhome unattended, look for a campsite that has 24/7 CCTV security. Any other additional security systems will be an added bonus too.
