My top UK camping destinations

Okay, perhaps it’s a little early in the season to be thinking about camping but you know me, I’m always planning my next holiday destination. After along autumn/winter I literally can’t wait to dust off the camper and get going.

I’m currently planning our Whitsun break and whilst doing so I thought I’d share the top places that I like to head to with the family.

The Isle of Purbeck


Not an isle at all, the Isle of Purbeck is a peninsula in Dorset – possibly my favourite county of them all. It encompasses some of my favourite places to visit including Corfe Castle, Swanage, Studland and of course the Jurassic coast. It’s proper Enid Blyton country and for the main part is beautiful and unspoilt. For camping I would recommend Norden Farm or the Camping & Caravanning Club site at Corfe Castle (you don’t have to be a member to use the site.)

The New Forest


There is something for everyone in the New Forest, whether you just want to kick back and relax or go off exploring on big adventures. It’s a really outdoorsy kind of place that will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Just watch out for those horses getting too close to your picnic…. Sandy Balls always comes highly recommended or try Hollands Wood.

North Devon Heritage Coast

Wonderful Woolacombe, what else is there to say! So much to see and do in this region aside from the gorgeous beaches of the North Devon coast. Sit and enjoy a cream tea whilst looking out to see or do some surfing if it takes your fancy – be as active as you like but do visit. Good campsites are Little Roadway and Warcombe Farm.

The Gower Peninsula

Port Eynon Gower Peninsula Towns & Villages-South

Possibly the most beautiful part of Wales? Definitely somewhere to go if you’re for some peace, quiet and relaxation. So many gorgeous beaches to discover and explore. I visited the Gower once and totally fell in love. You will do too. Try Carreglywd at Port Eynon or Nicholaston Farm.

And there you have it, my favourite places to head off to when the weather is warm and we’re in need of a bit of downtime. If you have any camping favourites, I’d love to hear about them.
