Best UK Caravan and Camping Sites

If you work in the city and live near the city, it’s easy to forget that the UK has some natural beauty; many of us never think to visit the dramatic landscapes of Scotland, picturesque seaside towns around our coast but instead go on holidays to other countries. Travelling abroad can be very expensive so ‘staycations’, holidays within the UK are becoming more popular.  If you’re new to the Touring Caravan business, a first time caravaner or if you’ve had a caravan for years and are looking for a new campsite to visit; take a look at our guide to some of the best caravan friendly campsites across the UK. 

Newton Mill Campsite, Bath, Somerset

Another site that combines tranquil countryside with being close enough to get to the attractions of a city is Newton Mill Touring Caravan and Camping Park which is close to Bath (i.e. great historic architecture, baths spas, restaurants etc). There is a cycle route that follows the Kennet & Avon canal and other attractions within driving distance are: Longleat House and Safari Park, Cheddar Gorge, Bristol Zoo and Stonehenge. It’s open all year round for die hard caravan enthusiasts and there’s clearly plenty to do

Pleasant Streams, Cornwall

This peaceful campsite in Cornwall is remote but with miniature pigs, miniature goats, chickens and ducks, as well as the local wildlife: ‘owls, hawks, buzzards, herons, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, field mice’, Pleasant Streams is great site for children yet is also a relaxing retreat for adults. You can also hire the campsites kayak to explore the coast of the local area. 

Fisherground Campsite, Lake District

Fisherground Campsite is situated on the other side of the Lake District, the quieter part without the Beatrix Potter crowd. The area is more peaceful than the tourist destinations of Windermere, but still boasts the same Cumbrian landscapes and fantastic walking trails. The campsite is great for families and the nearby Eskdale Steam Train great for kids. 

Mortonhall Caravan and Camping Park, East Lothian

Located near Edinburgh (perfect for cheaper accommodation over the Edinburgh Festival) and with a relaxing setting and great onsite atmosphere, Mortonhall is great for kids and adults alike. The camp facilities and helpful site staff will ensure you have a comfortable stay. 

Bush Farm Woodland Campsite, Wiltshire

Bush Farm in Wiltshire is a great escape; surrounded by beautiful Wiltshire Countryside Bush Farm has the perfect balance of being a hideaway but there still being enough to keep you entertained. With the kind of animals you’d expect to find in Yellowstone National Park and other parts of American Wilderness (Bison, Elk, Raccoons etc) in the nearby Bush Farm Bison Centre, and an onsite café and playground; there’s plenty in the area to entertain.
