Caravanning is a great holiday option – it’s cheap, fun, and most importantly it’s an adventure. A lot of people feel the need to escape the typical rainy British weather and trade it in for a week in the Spanish sun. If you’re one of these people you might think twice after reading this. There are hundreds of destinations in the United Kingdom that accommodate caravans and motor homes but only a few stand out and are – as Tina would say – ‘simply the best’.
The Scottish Highlands, known for its haggis and bagpipes, is bursting with natural beauty. With all the lochs, hills, mountains and coastline that this glorious country offers, it is ideal for those who love the great outdoors. There are lots of historic sites that would intrigue even the most sceptical, ranging from Nessie, the loch ness monster, to more realistic lures such as Edinburgh Castle and the Royal Yacht Britannia, there’s something for everyone.
Another popular destination for the Brits is The Lake District. The home of well known writer Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, this is also a must-see destination for caravanning enthusiasts. The Lake District’s unique charm attracts thousands of walkers each year. A few ideas of the many activities you can pursue include hill walking, rock climbing, mountain biking and quad biking. If you’re one of the many people in the UK who love fresh air then the Lake District is just the place for you.
Now at the very bottom of the British Isles, there is a place which is also home to stunning landscapes. Its name is Devon. Housing English delicacies such as Devonshire cream teas, Cornish pasties, and it’s very own local brandy – Devon is a typically British county. A busy place, full of families and caravan parks, it’s becoming more and more popular – especially suited to people who aren’t too keen on the distances you might need to travel to visit the Lakes or the Scottish Highlands.
A different, more diverse, caravan destination is Wales, otherwise known to the natives as Cymru. This country provides a vast range of landscapes making it suitable for people of all ages. This proud country has a wealth of natural beauty to explore. From the north which is also known as the Welsh Riviera to the south with its big cities and stunning scenery, Wales is the caravanner’s dream.
Caravanning in the UK is definitely going to turn your trip into an enjoyable adventure.
