So where will your half term staycation take you this year?
First up we have Bournemouth.
180 miles from Depot
One for all the family, Bournemouth has everything you need and more! Why not take a boat trip around the harbour? Or take the kids to Science Zone and enjoy the planetarium? Or even head on over to nearby Durley Chine for some crazy adventures in nature? There’s something for everyone and after a long day of exploring, you can stop off at St Leonards Farm Caravan and Camping park for a wind down and relax before another day of exploring.
Next up we have the Isle of Wight
200 miles from Depot
Once you’ve finished off your Bournemouth adventure, why not hop on the ferry to the sunny Isle of Wight? You could follow the coastline and stop off at Freshwater Bay, Robin Hill Adventure Park, Quarr Abbey and the zoo! After taking in the beautiful sites of the White Cliffs and enjoying the waves (remember your wetsuits!), you can enjoy some evening entertainment at Nodes Point Holiday Park. If the action all gets a bit much, you can explore the local area and even try your hand at some pottery painting at Chessell Pottery Barns – what’s not to love?
How about a Scottish adventure in Edinburgh?
300 miles from Depot
If the South Coast doesn’t sound like your thing, why not head north and explore Scotland’s majestic capital Edinburgh? This beautiful city maintains the feel of a small town and will leave you in awe as you wander through the stone building lined narrow streets of this medieval old town. Traditional pubs seem more like living rooms than tourist traps, and with the Camera Obscura and Arthur’s Seat all close by you’ll never be short of choice. Escape the buzz of the city with a stop at Drummohr Camping and Glamping Site before doing it all again tomorrow!
Fancy somewhere closer, The Peak District National Park could be for you!
45 miles from Depot
Your staycation should be the stress free half term break you deserve, so travel slightly closer to the depot and you could explore England’s spectacular countryside. Home to limestone ravines, romantic lakes, and rolling hills, it’s a young explorer’s paradise. If your idea of a dream holiday is long walks interspersed with some den building and mountain biking, then this could be the staycation for you. It doesn’t have to all be adventure – with a luxury motorhome holiday everything is taken care of. Cook up a storm in one of our luxury kitchens and stay the night at Whitehouse farm campsite before setting off on your next adventure in the morning.
Need to breath the fresh sea air? Why not venture to the Cornish Coast?
300 miles from depot
Arguably the UK’s most popular staycation destination this summer, it’s unsurprising that the beautiful Cornish views (not to mention the delicious pasties!) draw tourists year after year. But did you know that it’s the ideal spot to take a luxury, stress free, October Half term holiday? If it’s too cold for a dip in the sea why not try some silent disco Yoga in Newquay? Or a trip to the World famous Eden Project? Or just take a scenic walk and enjoy the breathtaking views? With Summit Camping for as little as £15 a night, the world (or shall I say, Cornwall) really is your oyster!
Did you know you could take a motorhome holiday in London?
122 miles from depot
We know! Motorhome holidays don’t normally seem to fit with the hustle and bustle of the big city. However, with Lee Valley Camping and Caravan park in Greater London, you could have the best of both worlds with the countryside and capital all wrapped up in one. Fancy a loop on the London Eye? A Visit to the Natural History Museum? Or perhaps even a boat trip along the Thames? It’s the perfect pick for a family with varied tastes.
In need of an adventure packed week in the Lake District?
155 miles from depot
If the countryside really is your thing, take a trip to the Lake District and remember to pack your walking boots! Stop off at Skelwith Fold and cook up a hearty breakfast in one of our luxury campers, before setting off on the day’s adventures. Fancy ticking Scafell Pike off your list? Or maybe you’ll hire some bikes and admire Lake Windemere? The Lake District is the perfect fit for the outdoorsy family wanting to take a break from the online world this half term. (The Kids will be fine without the iPad… trust us!)
Thrillseekers in the family, why not venture to Alton Towers Resort!
42 miles from depot
For the thrillseekers amongst you did you know a motorhome holiday could include a fun filled day at Alton Towers? With Rue Hill campsite just 3 miles down the road, you could enjoy the UK’s countryside and scream at the top of the Loop-the-Loop all within the same day! Whether it’s the log floom, the Wickerman or maybe something calmer that’s your cup of tea, you’re sure to be entertained (and maybe slightly petrified) with this half term adventure.
Fancy some peace and quiet in the Yorkshire Dales?
155 miles from depot
If a quiet getaway sounds more up your street, a quiet getaway to the Dales with a stop at the family friendly Ash Keys caravan park could be the one for you. Wake up with the sounds of nature and explore Malcolm Cove and Aysgarth Falls after a sound night sleep on one of our luxury mattresses. Take a ride on the Embsay & Bolton Steam Railway and take in the picturesque views that Northern England has to offer.
What about a no fuss trip to the Norfolk Broads?
160 miles from depot
If you’re after a half term staycation with everything all in one place, a trip to the Norfolk Broads and Breydon water holiday park is the one for you. As the name suggests, you can enjoy swimming pools and family activities right on your doorstep – you’d never even have to leave the site. If you do fancy venturing further out, take a look at some boating excursions or see what the wildlife has to offer (Did you know it’s the Wildlife capital of the UK?).
Last but certainly not least, the beautiful city of Bath
145 miles from depot
Our last top destination is the World Heritage site Bath, home to beautiful Roman heritage and Jane Austen history that any literary buff would die to see. Bond Valley Lake provides the perfect in between location to allow you to explore the street art of the infamous Banksy in his home of Bristol and the Roman Baths all in one staycation. Whether it’s 3,5 or 7+ days you’re after, you’ll surely be entertained in Somerset’s largest city Bath.
