Camping is a great way to travel and to see the world, and especially so when you are somewhere like the UK, where there is so much natural world to explore. The great thing about the UK countryside is that you can go and spend time in it and be very safe, because there are very few natural things that will harm you there. That is obviously a wonderful thing and something that you will really enjoy. So where are the best camping spots in the UK? Here are some that you may want to consider.
This is a beautiful little spot in Somerset that is almost wild camping, though it is actually a designated camping site. However, it’s a small one, which is a big part of its charm: you are only talking about something in the region of 15 pitches here. It’s located very close to the Western edge of the funky market town of Frome, so it’s got a little of everything if you want to go exploring in some towns as well as out in the country. All in all, it’s a perfect little spot, and definitely one you should check out.
The Lake District is probably pretty much the first place that people think of when it comes to camping in the UK, and with good reason – after all, there are a lot of open spaces here to camp on, so wild camping is a definite option where legal. And if you want to make camping just a part of your holiday, as is common, you could also take a look at a Lake District hotel, of which there are plenty of amazing options. So all in all, this is the kind of place you should certainly look into.
It’s not all about England, of course: the other nations all have amazing places for camping too, and you don’t have to look beyond Wales to find some truly incredible pitches. A great example would be the Three Cliffs Bay in Gower, near Swansea. You have woodland and open vales, all looking over a sheltered lagoon and sand dunes. The views are genuinely incredible, and you will find that you don’t want to leave once you get settled in. What’s more, the prices at this spot are really something to envy.
Not far away from that is the Wye Valley, which also has a lot of fantastic camping options for you to consider checking out. A good example would be this one located near the lovely touristy town of Ross-on-Wye. Doward Park has great facilities, and a lot of amazing woodland to walk through. It’s definitely somewhere you might want to check out if you love to walk and you want an easy camping experience, perhaps if you are camping with your family for instance.
Those are easily some of the UK’s best camping spots, so they are all worth checking out.
