The judges whittled down thousands of nominations to present 2016's top ten holiday parks in Britain. Here are our top ten, in alphabetical order...
2. Concierge Camping, West Sussex
Located on the grounds of the Ratham Estate, Concierge Camping offers 15 fully serviced hardstanding pitches, each separated by hedging and with satellite TV sockets and superfast broadband. With luxury toilets and a shower block - plus electric car and electric bicycle hire, as well as regular bicycle hire, you’d be forgiven for mistaking this caravan park for a boutique hotel!

8. The Old Oaks, Somerset
Relax, recharge and unwind at this adult’s only touring park and campsite. Offering larger-than-average, beautifully landscaped and spotlessly clean pitches as well as a fishing lake, Old Oaks touring park is an ideal location for couples and families (with adult children). Themed nights, activities and organised trips are available for those who wish to mingle. Plus an on-site farm shop offers home made cakes and freshly baked artisan bread.

10. Wooda Farm Holiday Park, Cornwall
Situated on the border between Devon and Cornwall and just a mile away from the seaside resort town of Bude, Wooda Farm Holiday Park offers a plethora of on-site activities and a range of local attractions - although the perfectly manicured, individual screened pitches may make you reluctant to leave! If you’re still not raring to go: there’s a golf course, tractor and trailer rides, a fitness suite and tennis court (and much more) – and with private bathrooms available for hire, it’s the perfect site for families with young children.
