Do UK campsites usually have cabins?

Hi - I'm sure a lot of you are keen campers and I was wondering if, as a rule, campsites have cabins in addition to tents and pitches for motorhomes?

I don't do tents, unless they have an en suite and a plug for my hairdryer and we don't have a van. I spent a couple of weeks last year in the Outback in Australia and stayed in a variety of cabins while my friends stayed in their caravan and it was great, sitting on a verandah, glass in hand, watching the sun go down.

If anyone does think cabins are a regular feature, I can then explore further.

Thanks.

Thanks, one and all. I see Woolwell doesn't remember seeing many. Cabins do away with the need to empty/fill various waste receptacles, so they would be my first choice.

Once the forthcoming holiday is over, I'll have a look for something in the Spring, perhaps.

Thanks again.

There are sites which have more or less permanent chalets. I think they are lived in for most of the year. Others are rent-able. I've seen them in Shropshire, North Wales and the Lake District. So I imagine they are common. I'm also pretty certain that they are available in Germany so probably are in most continental countries.

Hello I've just registered - this is my first reply.

Just a note that locally (in the English lakes) one man lost his life in a cabin by taking the bbq indoors on a cool evening in April. CO Poisoning. His wife was very very lucky. When I find the article I will post a link. Cheers Phil
