Ask any seasoned tourer and they’ll tell you, hands down, the best thing about caravanning is the freedom. Freedom from cramped aeroplanes, stuffed suitcases, and stuffy hotel rooms. Freedom from the cacophony of everyday life, which for many Britons, includes freedom from kids or grandkids.

We’ve compiled a list of the best adults-only caravan sites in Britain, for those in search of a romantic getaway, a fun weekend away with friends, or just a tranquil touring holiday, without having to worry about your own or anyone else’s children disturbing the peace.
