Escape it All in a Campervan
Remote camping or solo camping trips can be enjoyable and a great way to escape it all and have some quiet time to relax and unwind away from city life, or your usual day to day. To give you some inspiration we’ve put together a few ideas for some places to visit where you can take some quiet time out and slow down.
The North-West Scottish Highlands
This remote part of Scotland is the most north westerly village in the British mainland and has a spectacular coastal village with pristine beaches, vast open spaces, and plenty of wildlife. Perfect for those solo camping trips.
Durness is a great spot to catch the Northern Lights with one of the clearest views towards Alaska, USA.
It was even a holiday spot for a young John Lennon!
Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire & Worcestershire
The Cotswolds covers a huge 800 square miles and is full of stunning rolling hills for quiet walks along the Cotswold Way, impressive history, rolling hills and thatched cottages.
There are some beautiful classic country villages in the Cotswolds. Be sure to visit the villages of Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Tetbury among others.
You might also be lucky enough to visit the world-famous Coopers Hill Cheese Rolling contest in Gloucester if you visit during the Spring Bank Holiday.
BRECON BEACONS NATIONAL PARK
Brecon Beacons National Park, South Wales
Wales is full of impressive scenery and beautiful places to walk, cycle and explore. The Brecon Beacons National Park is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors, even on solo camping trips.
You can lose yourself in nature and visit stunning waterfalls as well as star gaze and see the Milky Way, meteor showers, and major constellations on a clear night.
The peaceful nature of the Brecon Beacons is not to be missed so put it on your list.
THE PEAK DISTRICT NATIONAL PARK
In central England, the Peak District National Park is committed to improving the quality of lives by using sustainable methods rather than using natural resources which destroy the beautiful surroundings and can’t be replaces.
It’s a truly stunning place to explore with lovely villages and scenery to lose yourself in. It really can feel like stepping back in time.
The Scottish Highlands
Step back in time and visit the cosy pubs of Inverness, explore the 19th Century Cathedral and castle or go wild swimming one of the many safe spots.
And of course, no trip to Inverness is complete without visiting the mysterious Loch Ness to discover the history, people, and surroundings… and see if you can spot the infamous Loch Ness Monster!
