Posted on September 28th 2017 by Towbar2U
If you are still grasping on to the last days of summer, you may be wanting to fit in a last minute getaway. Packing up a caravan for a UK staycation break could be the perfect solution, and with so many great destinations across the country, you are spoilt for choice. Let’s take a look at some of the best places Great Britain has to offer for taking your caravan on holiday.
Vale of Pickering Caravan Park – North Yorkshire
This large park is the worthy winner of the 2017 AA Campsite of the Year. With excellent, modern facilities and a beautifully kept site, this caravan park makes for a great destination. Pitches offer plenty of space and with the generous amount of trees and greenery, many offer good levels of privacy too. The site is situated amongst gorgeous countryside and has many places to explore and attractions to visit nearby; Dalby Forest, the many closeby market towns, Scarborough and the North Yorkshire Moors all make terrific days out.
Braemar Caravan Park – Aberdeenshire
Braemar Caravan Park is set in the heart of Scotland in the breath-taking Cairngorms National Park. This park is open all year round so whether you want to partake in winter sports or summer hikes, the choice is yours. Braemar Caravan Park is ideal for nature lovers with an impressive amount of wildlife calling the Cairngorms home. Look out for red deer, hares, red squirrels, capercaillie, golden eagles and owls, amongst others. The park is also well situated for the renowned annual Highland Gathering in Braemar, attended by royals and visitors from around the world.
Trevalgan Touring Park – Cornwall
Trevalgan Touring Park is an impressive 5* family friendly site with great facilities. The idyllic location of this park on the north Cornish coastline is fantastic, leaving you well-placed for the coast or countryside. There are day trips and attractions to please anyone and everyone; pick from the ever-popular St Ives just a stone’s throw away, a choice of beautiful beaches, St Michael’s Mount castle, The Minack Theatre, and walks across the South West Coast Path.
Three Cliffs Bay – Gower, South Wales
Located in the first area designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), Three Cliffs Bay park on the Gower Peninsula offers a setting second to none. The varied site – which also houses glamping yurts and cottages – offers space for caravans with either sea or countryside views and has a convenient on site shop selling lots of local produce. Make the most of the picturesque coastal location by visiting the unspoilt beaches and caves or, for those who want something more active, go surfing or trek along the rugged coastline.
Burford Caravan Site – Oxfordshire
On the doorstep of the Cotswolds, the Burford Caravan Site is an attractive location which is perfect for families. With the beautiful Cotswolds so closeby, this is a site ideal for those who enjoy rambling and tranquil countryside. Burford Caravan Site is situated right next to the Cotswold Wildlife Park, a family attraction which is home to a whole host of exotic animals which are sure to delight the kids.
