The best places to go camping in the UK

Camping in the UK

There are dozens of campsites in the UK, and while many are little more than a field, others have swimming pools, activities, brilliant views and other facilities that make them stand out from the crowd. The following campsites are the latter kind, and are some of the best places to go camping in the UK.

The Quantock Orchard Caravan Park is nestled in the Quantock hills in Taunton, Somerset. It includes both a caravan park and campsite, and has won several awards. Deep in the countryside and surrounded by trees and hills, it is a beautiful place to stay, but still manages to be convenient to get to as it is near the Crowcombe Heathfield railway station. It includes a swimming pool, a gym, bike hire, water points, a pay phone and a shop as well as an adventure playground for the children. It also has wheelchair access to the facilities. Not only is a the park itself exemplary, but the nearby area includes beaches, villages and lots of outdoor activities. You can take a closer look by visiting their website at quantock-orchard.co.uk.

Trevella Park in Newquay is another notable campsite. The site includes free fishing, a nature reserve, a heated swimming pool, shops, a games room, crazy golf and a launderette, as well of course as shower facilities. The campsite is famous for its beautiful array of flowers, often leading it to win the 'Newquay in Bloom' award, and being in Newquay it's a prime location for a beach or surfing holiday, as Newquay has seven miles of sandy beaches, many of which are among the best surfing spots in the UK. You can book with Trevella from trevella.co.uk.

Both of these campsites come highly recommended and have tons to do for people of all ages, both on and off site.
