Activity Idea: Accommodation: Caravan campsites, cabins

Holidays or short breaks in caravans, cabins or on campsites are proving increasingly popular, and woodland provides an ideal setting.

The most basic level of provision would entail some space set aside for tents, with access to drinking water and provision made for toilet facilities. At the other end of the scale are the large, purpose-built cabin developments that cover hundreds of acres.
