Bay View Farm, Cornwall
The purpose built caravan site is the perfect place to start your Cornwall expedition. The West Country is one of Britain’s crowning jewels and ripe for exploring. It boasts the best beaches in the country, and you’ll find the warmest weather too. Indulge in cornish ice creams and take a trip up into Dartmoor. Wherever you go, you’ll hear the sea crashing and feel the fresh ocean breeze.
If you’ve never immersed yourself in the lush Scottish scenery, you’re missing out. The wide, expansive lochs and the backdrop of mountains are quite stunning. Here in Invercauld, you’ll find some of the tallest mountains in the country. You’ll take rambling trips through the Cairngorms national park and see wildlife in their natural habitat.
Glenbrittle, Isle of Skye
It’s a long trek up north to reach the magical Isle of Skye, but it’s worth every minute. Watching the sun come up over the magnificent scenery is a real treat, and you’ll feel incredibly close to nature. Glenbrittle is the most secluded site on this list, well off the beaten track and deep in the heart of Scotland. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, this is a fine choice.
Snowdonia is nestled away in the upper corner of Wales, and home to the famous Mount Snowdon. The tallest mountain in the country acts as a backdrop to this magnificent countryside. Here you can explore at your own pace, and indulge in rustic Welsh food and drink. The caravan site itself is set within the forest, making a fantastic playground for the kids. For the true adventurers, Snowdon is within walking distance too.
Low Ray, Cumbria
We’ll complete our list with our favourite caravan site of all, Low Ray in Cumbria. The Lake District is Britain’s finest nature spot and Low Ray is deep in its heart. You’ll wake to a shimmering sunrise over Lake Windermere and explore the wonderful Lake District. There’s no better way to spend a week in solitude and quiet!
