The Caravan and Motorhome Club have announced the winner of its Certificated Location of the Year Award. This year's winner is Low Moor Head Farm situated in the picturesque Cumbrian countryside. The two runners up are the Meadow Bank Farm on the edge of the New Forest and Welltrough Hall Farm in the Cheshire Countryside.
Certificated Locations (CLs) are privately owned sites that have a maximum five van capacity, which are located across the UK. These sites are open exclusively to Caravan and Motorhome Club members. The CLs are situated in remote locations such as farms, country estates and beside inns.
The CL of the Year Awards are voted for by Club members, something the Club is very good at is interacting and listening to its member. By getting members involved the Club always gets the best of the best because the public vote in their masses, which means you always get a great impartial opinion. The best part about these awards is that they recognise the hard work the owners put into their sites to ensure guests have the best experience possible.
The awards are presented at the House of Commons in recognition of the Caravan Sites and Control of Development Act (1960) which enables the Caravan and Motorhome Club to grant certificates to landowners to operate CLs.
Grenville Chamberlain, Caravan and Motorhome Club Chairman said: "We are proud to recognise the important part CLs play in both our members' experiences and as a sustainable form of tourism. Visitors to CLs across the country help contribute towards the local economy by bringing income to the area; many owners have diversified into operating CLs as a means of generating additional revenue. The awards recognise those owners who really go the extra mile for members and provide them with a truly memorable experience. My congratulations go out to all this year's winners."
