Methodology

  • COVID-19 infection data for all English UTLAs (Upper tier local authorities) was sourced via https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/
  • Population estimates for England were sourced from the Office of National Statistics
  • Googles listings of campgrounds/ lodging /RV parks within the postcodes of the least infected areas were exported programmatically
  • Sites with 0-5 reviews we’re excluded unless the area had less than 10 sites in the area postcode
  • Sites were manually reviewed to identify the top 10 sites opening after July 4th 
  • Distances were calculated programmatically using Google My Business API

Disclaimers

  • We are not encouraging travellers to travel to remote areas of the country. This data aims to provide a transparent overview of where the infection rates have been well managed, and which campsites are the highest rated in these areas. 
  • Although we have manually reviewed campgrounds, some may be fully booked or closed. Most sites require pre-booking as part of their COVID-19 risk management so we recommend you always call/ book in advance. 
  • Things change on a day to day basis and will continue to do so over the coming months with locations likely to go in and out of lockdown to protect at-risk areas. Always double-check that the location you are travelling to is open and welcoming of holidayers.   
  • The data in the table is for England only, if you are travelling from other places in the United Kingdom or from abroad always check that the area is open for visitors from your home.
