Krispies, overall winner of the 2019 Fish and Chips Awards, shares recipes on its website; but if you’d rather they did the cooking, it’s just a 10-minute drive from Exmouth Country Lodge and Prattshayes Campsite, in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
2. French’s Fish and Chips
The north Norfolk coast is a real magnet for wildlife watchers and families, who come for its legendary beaches. Wells-next-the-Sea is particularly beautiful, with an array of beach huts on stilts. Among the cafés and shops on the quay is French’s, where you can enjoy some of the best fish and chips in the country. It’s just a two-minute drive from Pinewoods Holiday Park, and a short walk from the glorious beach.
3. Harbour Lights
Visit the deep-water harbour of Falmouth, Cornwall, and fishing boats are a common sight – so you know the fish at top Cornish chippie Harbour Lights is super-fresh. If you want to earn your supper with a walk, it’s 40 minutes from Menehay Farm Touring Park to the harbour – or a 10-minute drive.
4. Fish ‘n’ Fritz, Weymouth
With acres of sandy beach, Weymouth has long been a very popular holiday spot, and there are plenty of eating places to tempt the tourist. For top-quality fish and chips, head to Fish ‘n’ Fritz in Market Street. Eat in, or buy a takeaway after exploring Nothe Fort and Gardens and before heading back to your pitch at nearby East Fleet Farm Touring Park.
5. Mister C’s
You can find the award-winning Mr C’s in York and Selby, and both are just a bus ride from Approach Farm Caravan Site. Visit on a Tuesday and you can ask for gluten-free fish and chips. If you prefer to eat in your ‘van, it’s a 15-minute drive to either of the branches.
6. Malt and Anchor
Stunning architecture is one reason to visit the Cotswolds, but the ancient market town of Cirencester also boasts a rather fine chippie, Malt and Anchor. Perfect for supper at Cirencester Park Caravan and Motorhome Club Site.
7. The Dolphin
Just 20 minutes’ drive west of Maghery, on the shores of Lough Neagh, is Dungannon Park, a 70-acre site with a fishing lake. If you fancy the best fish supper in Northern Ireland, a scenic 30-minute stroll will bring you to the Dolphin Takeaway in Dungannon.
8. No1 Cromer
Staying on the north Norfolk coast, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to fish and chips. The Caravan and Motorhome Club’s Seacroft site has its own restaurant and bar, or you can stroll the mile or so into Cromer to enjoy award-winning fish and chips (and great views) at No1 Cromer.
9. Angel Lane Chippie
Angel Lane Chippie is tucked away in a pedestrianised area of the historic market town of Penrith, just off Great Dockray, where you will find plenty of parking. After a day out, you can eat in, or take away some of Cumbria’s finest fish and chips to your pitch at Thacka Lea Caravan Park, which is a six-minute drive away.
10. Quayside Gourdon
Quayside Gourdon is an award-winning chippie overlooking the harbour at Gourdon and further out across the North Sea. The fish could not be fresher. Pick up a takeaway to eat on the quayside or back on your pitch at Miltonhaven Seaside Caravan Park, the ideal base for exploring the eastern coast of Aberdeenshire.
