Camping in the UK
So often, when families are considering where to go on holiday, they forget about our own beautiful country! The UK has so much to offer as a holiday destination, and is a perfect location for a great camping holiday. And it’s not just camping that’s on offer here – there are also fantastic holiday parks and self-catering cottages to consider.
Travel round the UK is easy, with our fantastic motorway and rail network. And there are also plenty of internal flights on offer, with most budget airlines such as Easyjet and Ryanair flying to a variety of locations.
There are so many stunning parts of the UK that families are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a holiday location. One of the most popular regions of the UK is the South West, with the counties of Devon and Cornwall being ever-popular holiday spots. The North Atlantic coast is full of mile upon mile of glorious sandy surfing beaches, with the popular resorts of Newquay and St Ives in Cornwall and Woolacombe and Ilfracombe in Devon. The South coast of both counties provides gentler waters, with sailing being a popular pastime. Don’t forget to make a trip to the fantastic Eden Project if you’re in Cornwall! And in Devon, the historic city of Exeter contains stunning architecture and an unmissable cathedral.
At the other end of England are the Lake District and Yorkshire. The Lake District is a unique place, with a landscape that is covered with lakes and steep hills. Lake Windermere is a great spot for a camping holiday, with plenty of facilities to keep the kids entertained. Yorkshire’s stunning Dales and North Yorkshire Moors offer endless exploring and the beautiful city of York is well worth a visit.

The highlands of Scotland have some of the most dramatic landscapes in the whole of the UK, whilst Edinburgh is sure to delight younger members of the family with its castle and fantastic zoo. Wales is a country of sharp contrasts – from the mountains of Snowdonia in the North down to the sweeping coastlines of the Gower Peninsula in the South.
