The original camping company

Founded in 1964 by the Cuthbert family, Canvas Holidays is the original and longest running overseas camping tour operator in the UK. The Cuthberts were regular campers to France each year and realised how useful it would be to have pre-erected tents, with equipment already provided.

Canvas Holidays started out as a very small operation offering tent accommodation on only one campsite in Brittany in France.

Fifty years on and we now operate on around 90 sites in France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland and offer 9 varieties of mobile home, chalets, lodges and tents on our sites throughout Europe.

Our aim is to provide our customers with the best possible holiday experience. We do this by offering our customers a variety of campsites, accommodation, travel options and also onsite extras such as linen, insurance and on certain sites, free kid’s clubs.

Most importantly we offer our customers a friendly and knowledgeable onsite courier service.

You can look forward to joining a team that is passionate and determined to be the best camping tour operator in the business. So, congratulations on choosing to work with Canvas Holidays.
