Read How To Get Along With Your Neighbours
When experiencing a camping and caravanning holiday the last thing you want to do is fall out with your neighbours over noise, the kids, the dog or rubbish. So by following some simple etiquette tips everyone should be able to enjoy the holiday park and its facilities.
Being on holiday is really no different to being at home, being respectful to your neighbours is something we do every day without much thought and the same etiquette should be applied whilst on holiday. For example you wouldn’t walk through your neighbour’s garden to get to the shops quicker well the same applies when you are staying at a holiday park staying off other peoples pitches is common curtsy.
One of the main bug bares that people have when staying at a holiday park is noisy neighbours. The main objective for most people when they go to a holiday park is to get away from the noise of everyday life and enjoy the peace and quiet of the park.
Pitching by someone who insists on playing music/the tv loudly and thinks nothing of yelling “dinner time kids” at the top of their voices or letting the dog bark continuously isn’t going to go down well with the other campers who are looking for a restful holiday. Keep the noise down and think of others in the park.
Keeping your pitch clean and tidy is another must. You wouldn’t empty your dish water or scrap the left overs outside your back door or leave the rubbish there. So don’t do it on your pitch. This behaviour will attract a host of ants, wasps and rats and make you mighty unpopular with your holiday neighbours!
Finally whether you are camping in a caravan, motorhome or tent, leave the pitch just as you found it – unspoiled and as if you had never been there.
