We don’t wild camp to save money. We do it because although we use campsites we much prefer wild camping in remote locations next to the sea, or a lake in remote locations were there are no campsites. Also you can wild camp all year round, most campsites are only open from April to October.
This is the photo for Birchington Vale Park . It clearly shows caravans and motorhomes yet they will only take tents. That’s why I asked how you find out. Phoning them is almost impossible it takes forever to get through.
I booked a grass pitch with hook up for 9 days at Parkdeans Lizard Point, arrived today. It cost a mere £63, I don't think that can be beaten can it? Free wifi available but not at the pitch. Entertainment pass as well all for £7 a night.
You’re not alone. We are restricted to our local health board area but did manage one trip away as she who must be obeyed said that pre planned trips over half term should not be cancelled. Incidentally, most people do not know the boundaries of their local health board.
