You wouldn’t know it, but it’s actually summer! Yes! Summer! When the ever elusive sun decides to make an appearance, it can transform the mood of even the grumpiest of souls, and also signal a flurry of activity – with families keen to make the most of the weather and get out and about.
For some, there’s nothing better than getting back to nature and living amongst it all. Going to sleep under the canopy of stars, and waking to hear the birds sing. But gone are the days of backwater campsites with grubby showers and toilets, and a basic hall, which doubles up as a bar-cum-social club-cum activity centre.
The UK has several award-winning sites with state-of-the-art facilities and activities to exhaust the whole family including Gwithian Farm in Cornwall which has been described by visitors as: ‘The perfect place to stay with children.’ Not only is close to the beach at St Ives Bay, but there are luxury showers as well as children’s bathrooms, free wi-fi and a village pub opposite.
If, however, you’re looking for a more woodland experience, Kelling Heath in Norfolk could be pitch perfect. Imagine Center Parcs at the fraction of the price, Kelling Heath is surrounded by miles of woodland and heathland trails, with outdoor and indoor swimming pools, and bars and restaurants on site. There’s also a huge programme of kids’ events including den-making workshops and storytelling walks.
Or imagine unzipping your canvas home and looking out onto a stunning lake, or listening to the trickle of a mountain stream? Fforest Fields in Powys, Wales lets you really get away from it all in 10 acres of unspoilt open spaces that not only serviced by an award-winning toilet block that’s so clean it sparkles, but miles of bicycle and walking routes, fishing, horse-riding and an honesty shop selling essentials from eggs to bacon.
If some of these camping locations have whet your appetite and you fancy packing up the car and heading into the wilderness with your family, why not do it in style and with spanking new camping equipment.
