Find the perfect Certificated Location or Certificated Site with

Looking to get away at short notice? Want to find a late availability touring pitch at a delightful small site, away from the crowds, in a wonderful location? Looking for a campsite or caravan park with vacancies for Easter, May Day, Spring Bank Holiday or peak summer weeks? Why not give Certificated Sites or Certificated Locations - CLs and CSs - a try?

These sites often have vacant touring pitches when larger sites are full, and with’s unique pitch finding service, you can quickly find and book your perfect site.

CL’s and CS’s are small sites for up to 5 caravans or motorhomes, and are licensed by the Caravan Club or Camping and Caravanning Club. CS’s also accept tents whereas the Caravan Club accepts caravans and motor homes (although pup tents are often allowed at the discretion of the site owner).

You need to be a member of the relevant Club to stay on one of these sites, however, their annual membership fees are so reasonable, and give access to such a huge range of benefits, that you will quickly re-coup the fee.

Some have only basic facilities – a minimum is fresh water and waste disposal, whilst others have hook-ups, toilets and showers and other facilities usually associated with larger sites.

These wonderful sites remind us what camping is all about, and can be found in a host of unusual places - on the coast, tucked away in a farmer’s field, behind a pub, in the grounds of a stately home, or on the edge of a town or city. On farm-based sites you can often see the animals, buy produce from the farm and unfailingly, all owners offer invaluable information about the area.

Dozens of CL’s and CS’s are featured on, and using our "Search Availability" tool, you can instantly find 5 van sites with vacant pitches for this weekend, next month or your summer holidays.

In the future we will continue to visit many of these sites, and featuring them on our Blog!

I'm a member of both the Clubs but have not stayed on one of these small sites yet. Still got to find somewhere for Easter, so will give it a go! Thanks for such a useful web site and good luck with the new blog. I look forward to reading your site reviews.

I'm ashamed to say that I'd never actually come across the Available Pitch site - much to my embarrassment.

I'll happily recommend your site to visitors to my own - the service that you provide is clearly of use.

Best of luck with your ongoing online progress.
