Very limited availability most of year as small and so popular but Magic Cove in Mawgan Porth in Cornwall is very reasonably priced with fully serviced pitches from £18. 50 a night inc free WIfi aswell.

Very close to lovely beach, pub, shop

Lady heyes frodsham is probably the cheapest all service I've been too lovely site with access to some great walks

 

Plassy Wrexham ways is a bit more pricey but possibly one of the nicest sites I've been to

Harbury Fields Nr. Warwick (affiliated to the Caravan Club, but not a club site). We stayed here last October and I was surprised at the reasonable charges.

Depends on when & where you want to go.

 

There's here:https://issuu. com/vauxhallholidaypark/docs/2331_main2016

 

Page 21 of brochure

Use the slider, bottom left to zoom, left click. hold and drag to get to prices

 

Super pitches and Premier pitches are fully serviced for grey waste, water, electric & TV, free WiFi, no extras for the pitch.

 

If it shows fully booked, phone them.

We find that serviced pitches are like hens teeth.

We always ask whrn booking CC sites but very very rarely have any success.

If you look at the tranquility group of sites adult only most of them have fully serviced pitches and still much better value than the CC

Correction to previous post.

 

Give VHP a miss.  New owners, prices hiked, entertainment now poor, there has been problems with travelers on site.

 

poor reviews

UK Campsite allows you to include Serviced Pitches as part of the search criteria

Is it not somewhat perverse to expect an all serviced pitch to be “ cheap “.  The sites that install these facilities have to recover their investment and there is only one way to do that - in the pitch fee.

I understand that people ( retired or not ) want the best available deal, but asking for “ cheap “ on what are the top end of pitches is a little odd. 

BTW - I am well retired, have to watch the cash like most folks and prefer serviced pitches where I can afford them - if I can’t, I do something else.

Whilst "expecting" cheap serviced pitches is perverse, there are plenty of serviced pitches which are cheap - we're currently on a CL in Gloucestershire with fully serviced hardstanding pitches at £85/week

I spoke to one CL owner who had installed fully serviced pitches and as they were on water meters they had noticed they had started saving on costs as before installing, many campers would throw buckets of water down the drain or hedge when they were getting ready to leave. So  their are positives for site owners to actually install them

Providing, of course, that users of the serviced pitches are prepared to pay his asking price for them.
