With the continuing confusion with the traffic light system for overseas travel, there’s no better time to book a staycation and what better way is there to enjoy the amazing views in the UK than in a Campervan.
Escape to the outdoors and find a spot with a view. Here are just a few of PaulCamper’s favourites, and as you’ll see, South Wales makes it into the top five.
Here are fives reasons we recon you should give a campervan holiday a go……
- It’s always good to try new things!
- Get outside – Go on an adventure!
- No family left behind – Take the family pet!
- You can see so much of an area by touring
- Try it first for a few days to see if you like it!
Most of all though, we love the freedom it gives you. If you aren’t happy, or want a change of scenery, pack up the campervan and off you go.
So where are the places PaulCamper suggest we should visit…….
Ocean Pitch, Croyde, Devon
Ocean Pitch Campsite offers stunning views of one of the UK’s most unspoilt coastlines and has excellent facilities which should cater for all of your needs. It’s a great place to relax and unwind.
