GUIDE TO AA PENNANT RATINGS:
How we rate caravan parks and campsites.
One pennant parks: These parks offer a fairly simple standard of facilities. You can expect to find no more than 30 pitches per acre, with at least 6 pitches or 10% of the total area allocated to tourers. There will be an adequate drinking water supply and reasonable drainage, plus a washroom with flush toilets (if there are no toilet facilities this should be clearly stated). Chemical disposal arrangements are provided, ideally with running water and clearly signed refuse disposal arrangements. The ground will be well-drained with some level pitches and entrance and access roads will be of an adequate width and surface.
Two pennant parks: These parks offer a better level of facilities, services, customer care, security and ground maintenance. At a two pennant park you should find separate wash rooms, including at least two WCs and two washbasins, with hot and cold water, per sex for every 30 pitches. Toilet blocks will be externally lit and a warden will be available, at times indicated, during the day. Covered dish-washing facilities are provided and you can expect to find a park reception area.
Three pennant parks: Many parks come within this rating, and the range of facilities on offer is quite wide. Parks are of a very good standard with well-maintained facilities and grounds. You can expect to find modernised toilet blocks plus a reasonable number of modern shower cubicles. Three pennant parks offer electric-hook-ups, some hardstandings and wheel runs on firm and level ground. A laundry with automatic washing and drying facilities will be available and you can expect to find a children's playground.
Four-Pennant parks: These parks have achieved an extremely high standard in all areas. You can expect fully tiled shower cubicles and some combined toilet-washing cubicles. A warden is available at all times, and there is a good level of security and supervision. At least half of the pitches will have an electric hook-up and there will be a maximum of 25 pitches per camping acre. There will also be a shop on site or nearby, and the park will have a reception area and a late-arrivals enclosure.
