The UK is home to an array of exciting, fascinating and historical places to visit, making it hard for many to decide where to go in a motorhome.
From the lush and picturesque countryside to the incredible mix of vibrant cities and villages, embarking on motorhome adventures offers you the opportunity to tour the UK and discover fascinating things most homeowners wouldn’t.
We have researched and compiled some of the popular places to visit with your motorhome, and we hope you will enjoy the scenery.
Lower Micklin Touring Park, Denstone, Staffordshire
One of the many reasons why you should park your motorhome here is that you will be close to the Alton Towers theme park which is just two miles away, just in case you want to go and test your ability to keep your lunch down.
There are only 15 pitches, but they have made some decent renovations recently including a family bathroom with a toilet. Apart from the parking slot, you will also get access to washing basins and changing units for kids.
Wing Hall, Wing, Rutland
Located in the middle of rolling countryside, this campsite has four grassy fields and is popular with families. It is just a mile down the watersports haven Rutland Water and is one of the best places to consider if you’re looking to enjoy the spectacular scenery or spend quality time. On-site bike hire is also available so you can ride through the three, eight or 25-mile cycle routes.
Treveague Farm. St Austell, Cornwall
The South-west peninsula sea has always been a favourite for families, making it one of the best places you can take your motorhome to enjoy the breathtaking views. There are coastal footpaths within this area which will lead you to the Goraan Haven village, a location with local amenities and a scenic beach. The local fishermen won’t mind making new friends and will welcome you with warmth.
Beechwood Grange Caravan Club Site, York
Set in the open countryside just outside York, this site offers well-spaced pitches and a beautiful landscape consisting of trees and hedges. It provides you with an easy reach of local transport by providing a weekend shuttle bus service so you can access all of York’s facilities. Once you get here, you can check out the National Railway Museum, the Jorvik Viking Centre and the archaeological experience DIG York which are all nearby.
Setley Ridge Vineyard, Brockenhurst, Hampshire
Situated right in the heart of the beautiful New Forest National Park, this family business revolves around growing grapes, producing wine and bottling it whilst it also welcomes motorhomes to its campsite. It also offers plenty to see such as the National Motor Museum and Buckler’s Hard (where Nelson’s ships were built for the Battle of Trafalgar) – all of which are some minutes drive away.
Hawkshead Hall Campsite, Hawkshead, Cumbria
The site looks like a scene from the “Lord of the Rings” – serene, majestic and picturesque. Situated within walking distance from the popular Lake District village, this is one of the incredible places to visit with your campervan. You can walk up some of the hills for an adventure or settle for activities like bicycle hire, tree-topping, horse-riding and boating.
The Secret Garden Touring Park, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire
Still wondering where to go in a campervan? Head to this 11-acre campsite but with 45 pitches for a relaxing family experience. Its low occupation allows for a genuine, laid-back ‘back to nature’ experience so you can enjoy the serenity and space. There’s an on-site bike hire which gives visitors an opportunity to explore the flat the Fenland landscape.
Ardnamurchan Campsite, Kilchoan Highlands
Admittedly, this campsite is not the easiest to get to because you may have to manoeuvre your motorhome through treacherous terrains, but it’s well worth the effort. It is located in the most western part of the UK, close to the tip of a rocky land 60 miles from Fort William. It offers an iconic view of the coastline as well as music of golden eagles and otters.
Hopefully this short list has given you some inspiration. There is an abundance of places to go in the UK and we really have just scratched the surface. For even more choices, consider using a camping site like Alan Rogers to explore further options.
