Sorry to be a bit late responding here but I'm just catching up after a
week away, spent camping in our caravan! :-)

The camping / caravan ground we went to is 60 acres / 24 hectares in area.
Most of it is available for set-up-anywhere-you-like camping in tent /
camper-trailer /  caravan / whatever, with no provision for power or water
to the individual site (pitch).

Over in one corner, there are also 30 powered sites (pitches). Of these, 2
are reserved for tents, 2 for motorhomes / 5th-wheel (very large!)
caravans, & the other 26 for normal caravans / camper trailers. All of
these powered sites have an allowed capacity of 6 people only, which means
one "caravan", plus possibly a tent, on each site.

The park overall also has a max. capacity of 1000 people.

So how do we tag it?
