What do the star ratings mean?
July 19, 2009

Every country has its own star-rating scheme and although they are similar, they aren’t the same. The stars invariably relate to the number of facilities provided, so you might not get a swimming pool on a two-star site, but you should on a four-star site.

Where confusion often arises is in assuming that a four-star site will be run more efficiently than a two-star one. Management quality and facilities do often go together because nobody invests heavily in a state-of-the-art swimming pool, bar, restaurant and hot food take-away, only to allow the site to fail due to poor management. But equally I’ve seen fairly basic two-star sites that are cleaner and better run than a five-star hotel.

The best advice I can offer is to stick to sites that are members of a big marketing organisation like Castel Camping, Kawan or Camping Cheque. These sites have got to the size they are by taking visitor comfort seriously.

Gypsy Caravan Holiday
July 8, 2009

A Gypsy Caravan Holiday is kind of an adventure for the whole family!

You can escape every-day life and try something totally new: imagine you and your family living in a Gypsy caravan for a few days, handling a horse and driving through an unspoiled, idyllic countryside.

You can spend a holiday like this for example in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Denmark, Germany, France, Czech Republic, Switzerland or Hungary.

Especially in a rural, unspoiled environment you can experience this kind of authentic and mystical Gypsy feeling during a trip.

Gypsy Caravan Accommodation
July 8, 2009

Imagine this; it’s late 1960’s, you’ve travelled with horse and waggon to Mertons Farm, travelling at best 5mph.

You’ve been travelling most of the day. When you arrive another member of the family has arrived hours before you in his 18ft trailer pulled by his Bedford lorry.

Fire’s lit and kettle’s on, sit down and have a cup of tea, after unharnessing the horse.

English Gypsy Caravans
July 8, 2009

These highly decorated gypsy caravans are ideal for many uses. As an office away from the main house they’re cosy, warm, water-proof and away from the kids! As an extra bedroom to the house they are perfect. For the artist or writer, they offer peace and tranquility with warmth and light. last but not least, back a horse into one and take off for life on the open road. Nothing arouses that magical feeling that a gypsy caravan does.
