Over the last few months the Caravan and Motorhome Club has seen a giant rise in new memberships. Due to such high demand for the staycation holiday, the Club will be introducing a new pop-up style campsite in the wonderful grounds of Blenheim Palace.
The campsite has been created as a result of the Club's nearby and very popular Bladon Chains site running at capacity for much of the summer.
The new pop-up campsite is open for 50 days from Friday September 11th to Sunday November 1st inclusive. All visitors will receive 30 per cent off Blenheim Palace admission tickets for the palace, park and gardens and 20 per cent off at the Blenheim Palace Gift Shop.
Harvey Alexander, director of marketing and membership services at the Caravan and Motorhome Club said: "All of our UK sites have been incredibly popular this summer and Bladon Chains, (always a busy site) has been in particular demand. We are constantly looking to offer our members new experiences and we are delighted to work with Blenheim Palace to offer something unique, the chance to stay in such close proximity to the palace in its beautiful grounds".
The campsite is located just outside the wall of the palace garden, a dedicated UNESCO World Heritage Site. As well as being treated to stunning garden views, visitors can tour Blenheim Palace, home to the Dukes of Marlborough since the eighteenth century and birthplace of Winston Churchill. The nearby Bladon Church is also in walking distance with Churchill's modest but memorable grave.
Whilst in the area, a visit to Oxford is also a must and one of the easiest and most pleasant ways to see this historic university town is by open-topped bus. For those interested in art and archaeology, the Ashmolean Museum houses intriguing exhibitions spanning five floors.
If more shopping is the order of the day, nearby Bicester Village with its designer outlets is also a great day out. In complete contrast, the site is also within easy reach of the lovely Cotswolds with its picture postcard villages of Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Northleach.
All pitches on the site measure 11 metres x ten metres and include space for either one caravan, motorhome, tent or trailer tent and one car only, with a maximum occupancy of eight people. Pitches are allocated on arrival on a first come first served basis. As a pop-up campsite, there are temporary shower and toilet facilities, freshwater and all pitches have an electrical hook up. For those wanting to make the most of the end of summer, bbqs are allowed.
Each pitch for two adults costs £23.10 per night; additional adult guests are charged £7.40 per night, while children aged from five to 17 are charged £2.20 each night, plus a booking fee of £1.
Under fives go free and dogs are welcome. All prices include five per cent VAT. Minimum booking of one night and two adults applies. There is no single supplement.
