Camping is swiftly becoming increasingly popular again, partly due to the credit crunch and people seeking to stay closer to home and enjoy the incredibly picturesque surroundings of the UK. The UK has some of the most remarkable landscapes, including the Highlands of Scotland, the Welsh peninsula and the Southern coast line, all providing fantastic campsites fully equipped for the modern day camper.
Most individuals or families on camping trips will travel with their own tent or caravan. Some stylish campers may opt for the more luxurious tipis, yurts, trailers or vans; either way, all provide comfortable living space for your outdoor camping holiday. Many camping sites now offer spacious pitches with more than enough room for your tent and vehicle, whilst still having outdoor space to have meals or set up picnics and BBQs. What you can expect from your campsite often depends on the location: family camping sites often have various activities to keep the kids amused; whilst remote sites will often provide you with the most incredible views and landscapes. Beachside camping sites are often great fun for all the family; simply the location and beachside activities often means that there is something for all the family to enjoy.
