Where to take your caravan this festive season

Dec 22, 2015

What could be better than spending the Christmas and New Year period, surrounded by friends and family in some of the loveliest countryside in the UK? Many people have not even considered a holiday over the festive period, but for many people the highlight of their year is taking their caravan away for the Christmas holidays. We explore the sites that are open during the festive season, some even have their own Christmas parties to help you get into the swing of the festivities.


Windermere Campsite

This beautiful site is perfect for the avid caravan owner, set in the National Park, this site is highly recommended for couples. The Windermere campsite has a 4* pub onsite, the Whistling Pig, for those who want to get away from cooking as well as the house and the site has many environmentally friendly features.

Boroughbridge campsite

If you wish to be near the lively city of York, and within easy reach of Yorkshire Caravans, then this little campsite may be a great choice for the holiday season. For those who enjoy walking, especially with the frosty mornings and snowfall, the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Park are all within easy reach.


Moffat Camping and Carvanning

Situated in the beautiful Scottish lowlands, this site is perfect for the avid walker. Open over the Christmas and New Year period, this site is perfect for those wanting a quiet and calm way to relax during the festive period. The beautiful Victorian town of Moffat is a five minute walk from the campsite and there are several pubs and restaurants offering discounts to people staying at the site.

Wild camping

If you want to really get back to the roots of camping, then maybe a spot of wild camping is the way to go! Wild camping is just as it sounds, it is literally finding a spot (but not on private land) and camping there for the night. Many people heading North in Scotland will often pull over and camp by the side of the road. When thinking about where you want to camp over the Christmas and New Year period, be aware that there is the possibility of snow and ice and to pick your camping spot sensibly.


Black Mountain Caravan and Camping Park

Set below the beautiful Black Mountains, this caravan park is perfect for those looking for year round activities, with breath-taking views. This site is perfect if you are looking for peace, relaxation and calm. Located only fifty metres from the Red Kite feeding station, if you get the chance to see these lovely birds this will make your Christmas. What more could you want for Christmas? Tranquil settings in your own home away from home, stunning scenery and red kites on your doorstep?
