Taking a vacation in the great British outdoors is a great experience and there are many great places to pitch up your tent for a camping holiday. It is a cheap and easy way to have an enjoyable holiday in the British countryside and experience nature at first hand.
Holidaymakers choose many different ways to spend their camping trips with a wide range of tent sizes from a single occupancy to family size tents. Of course for a little more luxury there is also the option of taking a caravan to one of the many sites situated in the UK.
The UK has some terrific scenic locations for camping with excellent facilities to accommodate visitors bringing tents and trailer tents. It all depends upon how basic campers want their holiday to be. There are sites with just a water tap through to the most luxurious where campers will find showers, electrical hook-ups, barbecue grills, laundry facilities and even TV rooms.
Northern Ireland has many campsites in scenic locations with Sperrin Mountains in County Tyrone offering great facilities. It is also features mountain bike trails on site and other nearby places of interest. Many farm owners open up some of their land to campers and Watertop Open Farm is a good example located in Ballycastle.
For some the ideal camping holiday involves a pub somewhere along the line as sampling the local brews is a fine way to spend an evening before retiring to the tent for the night. In fact some pubs in the UK run their own campsites. Buxton in Derbyshire has more than one public house offering this service as does the Norfolk city of Norwich.
Camping is not just fields and tents as we have already established, but if you really can’t bear to be away from a computer then there are sites with wireless internet access. Some people prefer to have the bare minimum not just in terms of facilities. The UK offers a number of naturist camp or caravan sites.
In the summer time it is nice to take a camping trip near the seaside in order for the family to have fun on the sand and swim in the sea. There are several campsites in the seaside towns of Whitby and Scarborough in North Yorkshire as well as Weymouth in Dorset to name but a few. Wherever you decide to take a camping holiday in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales you are sure to have great fun and perhaps meet new friends.
