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."

Winner - Low Moor Head

Low Moor Head Farm Certificated Location was opened in October 2005, a tranquil site, set on a working beef and sheep farm with land running from the Duddon Estuary to Kirkby Moor just six miles from the city of Carlisle. The site is exclusively for adults and offers the perfect location for visiting many historic attractions both in England and Scotland, being between two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Northumbria 'Hadrian's Wall & the Lake District National park. Guests come from as far afield as New Zealand, South Africa, Spain and Holland.

The Site offers five hard standing spacious pitches, set within one acre. It is open all year round and encourages visitors to get out and visit surrounding areas, helping sustain the local economy. There is very good vehicular access with a parking area for both guests and visitors; excellent digital TV reception and free organic free range eggs. Facilities also include heated toilet/ shower and disabled facilities, cycle racks and recycling point.

Low Moor Head Farm also has available an adult only 'Pheasant Lodge' luxurious '5 star, self-catering accommodation complete with hot tub, for friends! No stranger to winning awards, Low Moor Head was voted second place in the National Award in 2013 and winner of the Regional Awards in 2009, 2010, 2015.

Chamberlain continued: "Low Moor Head Farm consistently goes that extra mile for visitors with the provision of free range eggs, lots of local information and faultless facilities. Owners Owen and Adele have really strived to provide everything guests could possibly want and that includes a very warm welcome - this is a very well deserved win for an incredibly well run site."
