Book your pitch today and visit Devon with us in May at the 2015 Practical Motorhome Reader Rally at Stowford Farm Meadows – we'll see you there!

We’d love you to join us for the 2015 Practical Motorhome Reader Rally as we once more take over Stowford Farm Meadows in north Devon for four fabulous days.

In fact, you can already book your pitch! Our rally is happening across the early May bank holiday weekend (1 to 4 May 2015) and for only £48 per pitch for three nights you could be there. So, what are you waiting for? Call Stowford Farm Meadows today on 01271 882476. Want to stay a bit longer? Why not – and Stowford has a special rate for motorcaravanners attending the Reader Rally.

Our Reader Rally is always huge fun, and whether this will be the first time you’ve come or you’ve enjoyed coming for many years, we would love to see you there. It’s a lovely weekend away for you and your family, and you can meet many like-minded motorcaravanning enthusiasts.

As ever, we’ve planned a packed weekend of events to keep you busy. Test yourselves at our annual quiz night and be in with the chance of winning some prizes, plus there’s live entertainment and games.

Many of you who’ve come to the Practical Motorhome Reader Rally before will be delighted to know that our dog show is back this year. Always a highlight of the weekend, whatever size, age or breed your dog is, it will be more than welcome to join in and compete across a range of disciplines. Stowford Farm Meadows is a really dog friendly campsite, so you and your favourite four-legged friends will be assured of a very warm welcome.

But that’s not all. Two other very popular regular Reader Rally features are back for 2015, Saturday’s barbecue and afternoon tea on Sunday. Well, it would be rude to break with tradition! Similarly, once again you can meet the Practical Motorhome team all weekend, as they’ll be keeping you going with free teas and coffees.

Of course, we’re hoping for beautiful weather between 1 and 4 May, but come rain or shine, there’s much to do at Stowford. Enjoy a drink at the bar or a bite to eat at the restaurant. Let the kids run off some steam at the children’s play area, or take them for time at the petting farm or the horse riding centre. Take a dip in the heated indoor swimming pool, challenge yourself at the pitch and putt course, or wander around the woodland walk.

If you fancy heading off-site, there’s plenty to do in the local area. Visit Devon’s famous coastline. The seaside resort Ilfracombe is just a quarter of an hour’s drive away, while the town also has a golf club if you fancy a round. The enticing sands of Woolacombe are about a 20-minute drive from Stowford Farm Meadows, or you could explore the Exmoor National Park and Exmoor Zoo.

We’d love to see you in Devon this May. So book your pitch and get it in your diaries – you don’t want to miss the 2015 Practical Motorhome Reader Rally.
