IF the British weather is getting you down, then ditch the UK for a sunny Spanish campsite instead.

With Spain still hitting temperatures up to 21C, and campsites for as little as £9, a holiday abroad during the half-term won't break the bank.

With travel restrictions also easing, families will only need to have one test when back in the UK, if fully vaccinated, with Spain having zero entry restrictions.

And dozens of campsites still have availability in October, with cheap pitches costing less than a tenner each, and you won't have to pack the wellies.

With many also have kids activities and swimming pools, here are some of the best best pitches to book now with your loved ones or friends for a last-minute holiday.
