Robin Hood Bay

With the colder months and dark nights finally coming to an end, many of us have been dreaming of a summer holiday in the sun. When it comes to choosing a destination, a massive 90% of Brits opt to holiday in the UK at least once a year according to studies. So, why are so many of us choosing to holiday closer to home?

We think the answer is clear – the UK is a camping holiday hotspot. With beautiful countryside, a range of scenic routes for walkers and even a beach or two, you could find yourself spoilt for choice!

Motorparks, who specialise in a range of practical used cars, have assembled this handy guide to the best camping destinations in the UK to get you started!

1. North Yorkshire: Hooks House Farm, Robin Hoods Bay

The first spot on our list is perfect for those of you looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the working week. Hooks House Farm boasts a high hill location looking over sloping grassy fields that lead to a breath-taking sea view. Located in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire, this campsite is the perfect starting point for those looking to take on the coast-to-coast walk across the Yorkshire Dales, North York Moors and the Lake District before finishing on the Cumbrian coast. You can even find a small beach onsite, where children will enjoy a spot of rock pool fishing. Of course, you can also enjoy the sea waves in the summer months by taking a swim, or a little paddle.

2. Cornwall: Bay View Farm

Cornwall is already a frim favourite with UK holidaymakers. Home to a selection of sandy beaches and sheltered coves, you’ll feel like you’ve travelled to a whole different continent! The beautiful Bay View Farm campsite overlooks the sandy Looe Bay, making it an ideal place to visit with your
partner. Try an outdoor picnic for two with a view! The small fishing village of Polperro is close by with its selection of fudge shops, tea rooms and art galleries. You can even go shopping for a fresh catch of the day to cook on your BBQ that evening.

3. Argyll: Caolasnacon, Kinlochleven

Located in the Scottish Highlands, Caolasnacon Caravan and Camping Park is set amidst breath-taking scenery. Offering the opportunity to pitch your tent right by the water makes it a perfect spot for water activities, such as canoeing and kayaking, and of course, provides a constant soundtrack of lapping waves.
There is an amazing variety of wildlife here. Otters find habitat in the Loch, whilst golden eagles fly above. The site provides a unique opportunity for campers to get away from bustling life and enjoy the natural scenery that the Highlands offer.

This peaceful site lies below the rocks of Crinkle Crags, Bowfell and the Langdale pikes – a site that boasts some of the stunning views that the Lake District is known for. Visit the lake-free valley of Great Langdale for some escapism away from the mayhem of everyday life.
