UK’s First Campsite operating as a winter Aire opens in Lincolnshire

The community run Jubilee Park In Woodhall Spa have taken this decision to help with their recovery from covid and respond to the growing need for year round sites for the UK Motorcaravan market.

CAMpRA has been recommending that campsites are able to remain open during the winter months by operating as an Aire for self contained motorcaravans using hardstanding pitches during the closed season. The toilet blocks, reception and other facilities will be closed, and as no awnings etc are allowed on an Aire there is no requirement to maintain grass areas ETC.

If possible it would preferable if Water and and Waste Points were also available .

Butley Village Hall Aire in Suffolk

Extract from the report on Butley village hall Aire:

Benefits:

  • Additional income raised from the £7 per night, per vehicle, fee.  
  • Outlay is very small and there are no ongoing annual costs associated with having an aire attached to the hall’s grounds.
  • It is minimal work for the return as there is no cleaning involved for the hall. Everything else already existed in terms of chemical treatment and water supply. 
  • Increased security and reduction in anti social behaviour with motorcaravans onsite.

Source: Dave McGinity, Parish Councillor

“Embrace it – village halls need to find different income streams and it’s a great way to support our community and the camping community.”

Nook Farm Shop & Cafe

I see this as an additional arm to my business and a great service to those people taking the opportunity to explore this beautiful part of the world! I am quite envious and it’s lovely hearing where everyone has been and are heading for! And even better to hear stories of “first timers” to the North Pennines. 

We started this venture when lockdown lifted in April 2021 and so far have had 25 camper vans and more in the pipeline.

It’s been problem free so far and I am already thinking of extending services and parking to account for the need 

I applied for an exemption licence and can host up to 5 self-contained vans per night. 

We wave off our campers confident that they have parked up somewhere with a great view and a warm welcome.
