Our campsites win top honours regionally and in UK.
A NORTH YORKSHIRE campsite has been named the best in the UK.
The Vale of Pickering Caravan Park in Allerston, near Pickering, has been named AA Campsite of the Year 2017.
Meanwhile Cote Ghyll Caravan and Camping Park in Osmotherley has also been recognised as AA Campsite of the Year for the North-east 2017.
The Vale of Pickering Caravan Park was a previous AA regional award winner in 2013.
Since then its owners, Tony and Dianne Stockdale, have continued to invest at their family park.
This year the AA inspector was "stunned by the quality and design of the new state-of-the-art facilities block" which has six fully-equipped wet rooms, and a "very smart" dishwashing room.
Elsewhere, the touring areas are landscaped, there is a woodland walk and a children's play area, and a ball games field.
New electric posts and a dog wash, with shower, were also added this year.
Cote Ghyll Caravan and Camping Park is a "quiet, peaceful site secluded in a pleasant valley within walking distance of pretty Osmotherley village".
It features an amenity block, with underfloor heating", two play areas, and of course Cod Beck, which flows through the park.
All the winners will appear in the new AA Caravan and Camping Guide 2017.
