Let’s be honest, with the COVID restrictions still being imposed by many countries, many of us are thinking it would simply be less stressful if we took a holiday in the UK this summer rather than take a gamble on a foreign vacation.
If you own a campervan, meanwhile, there are dozens of ideal destinations scattered up and down the country. To help you plan your perfect summer getaway, here are five of our favourites.
1. Scottish Highlands
Get lost in the mountains and surprisingly decadent beaches found in the Scottish Highlands. You can even board the Jacobite steam train which is also more commonly known amongst Harry Potter fans as the Hogwarts Express. It’s the kind of place that’s remote enough to offer genuine escape and scenic enough to rival any of the most gorgeous locations in Europe.
2. Isle of Wight
Far more than just an island that plays host to a very famous music festival, the Isle of Wight was a favourite destination of a certain Queen Victoria and is perfect for those wanting an island escape on a budget. The climate is warm and inviting all year and whether you’re after a quiet escape or a debauched pub crawl, there is something for you to fall in love with here.
3. Lake District
Spending a few days “in the lakes” is something that all UK holidaymakers should experience at least once. With dozens of quaint and idyllic villages and hamlets scattered throughout the region, it’s the kind of place it’s very easy to fall in love with. Given the name, you’re probably also expecting a fair among of water and there is more than enough to go around. So, if you’re into sailing, kayaking or wild swimming, there’s plenty here to sink your teeth into.
4. Jurassic Coast
Did you know that the UK was one of the most lucrative locations in the world when it came to fossil hunting? The ancient coast that stretches from Exmouth to Dorset is wealthy with fossils and is also one of the most scenic and sunny stretches of coastline in the country.
5. Yorkshire Dales
The views here are truly mesmerising and it’s perfect for those who love the outdoors. It’s also home to some of the most incredible railways in the UK and if you happen to be a fan of history, there is more to enjoy here than you could ever hope to experience in just one visit.
Before you start planning your UK campervan vacation of a lifetime, remember that you’ll only be able to fully relax on your holiday if you know you have every base covered. This means taking out complete campervan insurance that will cover everything from your personal effects to the generator and everything in between.
