Camping and Caravanning in UK:

We frequently travel around the UK meeting our dealers. The most economical way we have found is using our caravan. Here are some sites that we can thoroughly recommend.

Higher Elms Farm, Cross Lane, Church Minshull, Crewe CW1 4RG. Mr B A Charlesworth. Tel: 01270 522252.

This is a Caravan Club Certified Location, limited to 5 caravans at a time.

If you like peace and quiet and stunning views of the surrounding countryside, you will never want to leave! Basic amenities: fresh water point and sewage/waste disposal points, but no toilet/bath blockhouse so you will need to be self-contained.
