Ues the British winter is well and truly upon us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t think about plans for the summer. For those of us having already retired, the summer represents a chance to really explore different parts of the UK. To relax in stunning rural spots or near fantastic beaches.
If you’re already thinking about your summer away in your caravan, it’s time to get researching the UK’s best spots. Start with our guide.
Low Wray, Cumbria
It’s difficult to beat the Lake District when it comes to revelling in the beauty of the great outdoors in Britain, with Lake Windermere one of the many jewels in this particular crown. This National Trust run site gives you the opportunity to witness the sun rising over the famous lake, and is the ideal spot to really get out and enjoy the many walks found in the area. The site also has its little quirks, with yurts and tipis also available to stay in.
Southland Camping Park, Sandown, Isle of Wight
This camping park is an award winner, and on arrival it’s easy to see why. Located in a wonderfully quiet setting you’ll find a number of great flat pitches. It’s also the ideal spot to explore the Isle-of-Wight. Just make sure you get your pitch and your ferry booked in plenty of time in the summer months, as well as researching cheap caravan insurance quotes well before travelling.
Wooda Farm Park, Bude, Cornwall
If you’re heading off with all the family, or the children and grandkids are coming down to spend a few weeks with you, this is the ideal spot as there are so many features and facilities for all the family to enjoy. Best of all, you’re just five minutes walk from Bude’s stunning sandy beaches. Perfect.
Beddgelert Caravan Park, Snowdonia
This offers the perfect forest retreat and is within walking distance from Snowdon, which guarantees two things; stunning scenery and an abundance of great walks and treks. It’s also an ideal site for all the family.
