The 21 Best UK Campsites With Ensuite Facilities

As April 12th approaches, many of us are itching to get away camping but with public facilities on campsites only opening up on 17th May, the options are to look at campsites with ensuite facilities or to use your own sanitary equipment.

If you just go camping once a year and don’t already have the necessary equipment, buying what you need to be ‘self-sufficient’ may end up costing more than the camping pitch itself.

We don’t have toilet and shower facilities in our VW Campervan so the idea of being able to book campsites with ensuite facilities is very appealing.

Even when the restrictions are lifted, you may feel more comfortable with booking campsites with showers and toilets for your own use – so this guide is not just for those few weeks between April 12th and May 17th.

There is a good mix of campsites with ensuite facilities including back to basics, natural campsites as well as holiday parks in popular UK staycation destinations and campsites on the beach.
