Campsites reopen for millions of Brits – but you may need your own toilet

Campsites in England and Wales have reopened as for Brits to begin planning their summer staycation breaks.

Lockdown in England has finally relaxed as Brits get to visit non-essential shops again, as well as visit pubs and restaurants which have outdoor seating areas.

As well as enjoying facilities on our doorstops once again, we can also go on a mini break in the UK to tons of different campsites.

However, you may find you need to bring your own toilet and cooking facilities.

Campsites and caravan parks can reopen now as long as the only shared facilities are washing areas, toilets, water points and waste disposal points.

However, some campsites have decided to only allow for self-sufficient campers to use their sites to remove any potential confusion.

Self-contained accommodation means that it comes with its own bathroom, kitchen and sleeping facilities that wouldn't be shared with anyone from another household.

A statement from The British Caravanners Club reads on its website: "12 April: This will be our earliest opening date for sites in England.

"It is likely that we will not be able to open facility blocks, so we will only be able to welcome self-sufficient campers."

This means that many are now on the hunt for camping toilets.

These are pop-up tents with potty-like commodes that sell for as little as £20.

Certain models are reportedly being viewed 66 times a day on eBay currently.

According to, 361 campsites are currently now open in England, with prices starting from just £5 per stay.

However, despite Brits in England and Wales being able to enjoy a camping trip, Scotland will remain closed until April 26 and travel to and from the country is still prohibited without a reasonable excuse.

Hotels and B&Bs are set to open for holidaymakers in England on May 17 at the earliest, however no more than six people or two households will be able to stay together indoors.

It's though June 21 is the earliest date that all restrictions on mixing could be lifted.

Another news headline recently revealed that pop-up campsites will open at stately homes, farms, ­racecourses and showgrounds to meet the soaring demand for staycations.

More than 500 locations that don't usually allow stays will become overnight destinations as hotel, B&B and cottage costs rocket.
