Posted on July 30th 2019 by Towbar2U
If you’re lucky enough to own a caravan that you can bring with you on your travels, then you’ll likely be a fan of visiting some of the fine caravan parks and campsites that the UK has to offer. But what are the best places to visit for a caravan holiday? Here, the team at Towbar2U are going to look at the best caravan parks in the UK for a summer trip.
1) Polmanter Touring Park, St. Ives, Cornwall
For fans of coastal beauty, you won’t find many better caravan parks than Cornwall’s Polmanter Touring Park. From your spot, you’ll be able to take in 40 stunning miles of coastline, from St. Ives Bay to Trevose Head. A short walk away is the beautiful fishing port, from which you can also explore St. Ives’ trendy boutiques, restaurants and cafes.
2) Burnbake Campsite, Dorset
With 130 pitches, there’s ample space for you to set up at beautiful Burnbake, with its picturesque woodland surroundings and all the features you need for a comfortable relaxing caravan holiday. With showers, washing machines and baby-changing facilities and a small shop for your camping and cooking equipment, you’re well catered for here. Away from the site, there’s Poole Harbour, with its plentiful seafood restaurants and waterfront attractions to keep you busy.
3) Treen Farm Campsite, Penzance
Treen Farm’s proximity to some of the most fantastic beaches Cornwall has to offer is one of its main selling points. Pedn Vounder is nearby, with Whitesands Bay’s perfect surfing conditions not far for those who fancy a bit of watersports. There’s also the Minack Theatre – an auditorium cut into the rocks by the water – within a short distance.
4) Hooks House Farm, North Yorkshire
One of North Yorkshire’s finest camping and caravanning locations, Hooks House Farm is situated in Robin Hood’s Bay, between Whitby and Scarborough. The area offers the perfect combination of coastal beauty and countryside tranquility, with plenty of history to dig into and attractions to enjoy. The family-run campsite provides absolutely stunning panoramic views of the bay, and green space for you to relax in.
5) Dunnet Bay Caravan and Camping Site, Scotland
Situated a stone’s throw from Dunnet Head, mainland Britain’s most northerly point, Dunnet Bay Caravan and Camping Site should be top of the list for caravanners who value privacy and tranquility above all else. The site’s remote nature means the beach is empty more often than not, so you can experience having your own private beach for a little while. The site has a small shop selling milk, eggs and local produce, with the nearest supermarket being three miles away in Castletown. For a water-based adventure, take a ferry trip around the Stacks of Duncansby or try your hand at sea fishing from Scrabster or the nearby beach.
6) Shepherds View Holidays, The Lake District, Cumbria
One of the most beautiful parts of the country, if not the world, The Lake District offers plenty for those who want a perfect caravan holiday. Shepherds View, near Wastwater has everything you need for your caravan holiday, whether you want to put your feet up, lace up your walking boots or ride your bike. There are plenty of trails nearby for the active ones, with beautiful views right on your doorstep for a more tranquil experience.
