Best UK Campsites…

We all love a bit of camping when the sun shines! Peter Byrd from Professional Camping has put together a few taster campsites from his popular post “20 of the Best UK Campsites”…

You may have your usual camping spot that you take friends and family to, but now, you’re thinking of changing it up. And you know, that’s a great idea. The UK is full of amazing areas that you need to check out whether they’re in the countryside or coastline.

But, understandably, it’s not easy choosing a campground for your holidays. There are hundreds of campgrounds to choose from and you either don’t have the time to go through all of them or are unsure if the photos of sites are actually real. And as much as you like exploring new areas, going to places which you know are fully functioning and equipped are always the safest options.

Here at Professional Camping, we decided to go through and select the 20 best UK Campsites, all equipped with the information you need in order to plan your camping trip. So, let’s take a look at what some of the best UK campgrounds have to offer.

The Park Farm campsite is a real back to basics campground which gives campers the opportunity to throw themselves into nature. They pride themselves on the fact that they provide you with the “proper way” to camp. What does this mean?

Keeping it simple. Spacious pitches, views, campfire, toilet and, of course, no cars. They wanted children to be able to run around freely, explore and fall in love with nature. On 38 acres of land, you’ll have amazing panoramic views of Thames Valley and Cotswold hills, and surround yourself with sheep and other farm animals.

You’ll be able to collect eggs from the chickens, pet barn animals, keep your watch for wild animals such as deer and walk through the wild fields. Now, you can’t get much better than that.
