UK Camping Guide

With the rise in popularity of ecotourism, camping has become one of the coolest types of holiday in recent years. Whether you enjoy getting back to nature in the most basic surroundings or prefer to live in luxury, there`s a camping holiday for you. Well equipped campsites with enormous tents, yurts and vans are perfect for those who require all mod-cons when they go away, while basic tents suit adventuring types who are happy to sleep in more spartan conditions. Let`s take a look at some of the UK`s top camping holidays to help you find the perfect destination for you.

Also known as “glamping”, more glamorous camping holidays are a great way to enjoy a stylish break on a budget. The South-West of England is a particularly popular destination with “glampers.” Choose from luxury campsites in Somerset, where you can enjoy the stunning landscapes of Cheddar Gorge and Stonehenge, or head down to Cornwall where you`ll be able to catch some waves and visit trendy seaside towns such as Padstow and St Ives. Dorset is also a popular destination for campers; with plenty of stunning beaches such as Studland and Weymouth and amazing natural features such as Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door. The many camping options available in South-West England prove that you don`t have to spend a fortune on expensive hotels to enjoy a relaxing and luxurious break in the UK!

Northern England and Scotland may not be the first places you think of when planning a camping holiday, but camping and caravanning facilities in these areas are surprisingly good. Cumbria is a vast region in North West England with beautiful countryside and some delightful tourist attractions. Home of the Lake District, camping in Cumbria is the ideal way to get back to nature and make the most of the walks and activities in North West England.

If you head even further North, you`ll find yourself in Scotland where there are some well-equipped campsites which are perfect for a family break. While the climate in Scotland can be a little unpredictable, you`ll enjoy cosy nights round the fire at one of the country`s fabulous campsites and holiday parks.

Wales is a popular destination with British and foreign holiday makers and you can find some excellent campsites across the country. Wales has a varied range of landscapes from stunning scenery in Snowdonia, to beautiful beaches in Pembrokeshire. If you like exploring the countryside, you`ll love the rolling landscapes of Powys in Mid-Wales. Here, you can try some of the many outdoor activities available in the Welsh border-countries from walks in the Brecon Beacons to canoeing on the river Wye.

The UK has many varied options for fans of camping holidays. However, if you want to be sure of the weather, you might like to head further afield. Europe boasts many campsites, where you`re guaranteed warm nights in a Mediterranean climate. Favourite regions for a summer camping break include Provence in the South of France and Eurocamp San Vito / Cisano Holiday Park near Lake Gaarda in Italy. Wherever you`re heading, camping is a fun and affordable way to enjoy a refreshing break, so why not book your holiday today?
