The Best Caravanning Hotspots in the UK
Are you considering a trip to the UK, and want to avoid heading to the usual spots? Anyone visiting Great Britain should consider a caravanning holiday as a way to see the best of the countryside, while also enjoying peace and quiet; renting static caravans can be a good option, as can taking a mobile home around the country. There are a wide range of different caravanning hotspots around the UK, which can feature excellent facilities, and that are close to key attractions. With this in mind, what are some of the best caravanning hotspots to be found in the UK?
This campsite is part of Yorkshire in the North of England, and borders the Yorkshire Moors and National Park. An ideal place to take kids, Rosedale Abbey benefits from the beauty of its surrounding countryside, as well as by its relative closeness to nearby cathedral cities like York, as well as to small villages and towns. In the park itself, you can find electric connections and charging points, showers, play areas and disabled facilities.

If you want to try something a bit different with your caravanning, then the Glenbrittle site on the Isle of Skye comes recommended; located in the Scottish Highlands, this remote area has all the amenities of a mainland campsite, but gives you more peace and quiet. Consistently popular with caravanners and campers, Glenbrittle is open from April to September every year, and benefits from being booked in advance. Nearby attractions include the Black Cuillin mountains and Loch Brittle.
Three Cliffs Bay
Head to the Gower Peninsula in South Wales for this campsite, which is near to clifftops and the beach, and provides unbeatable views. A good place to take families if you want to find a lot of different activities, watersports are available off the beach, while a nearby golf course is also available – the nearest city is Swansea. The four star campsite has toilet blocks, shops, and spaces for recharging cell phones and laptops, as well as laundry facilities.

Bay View Farm
Located in North Devon, Bay View Farm is an ideal place to visit with a caravan if you want to enjoy English beaches and surfing; while the county of Devon doesn’t quite have the same quality of surfing as its more Westerly neighbour Cornwall, you can still get some great waves along the beaches. The Bay View Farm campsite includes a children’s play area, laundry facilities, and free hot showers, and is near to the small English village of Croyde.
This Kent campsite is close to London, but is tucked away in the countryside – fishing and sailing are available nearby, as is Bedgebury Forest and the towns of Tunbridge Wells and Hastings if you need supplies. Cedar Gables comes with all the facilities you need for a caravanning stay, as well as a visitor lounge and phone charging points. Other nearby sights include Hop Farm for animal petting, and Bodiam Castle.
