One of my favourite holidays with my family isn’t what most people would call a holiday. We’re not staying in a 5 star villa, there is no pool, and we don’t spend all day drinking, okay, maybe we do the last one sometimes. If you haven’t figured it out already, I’m talking about camping. I love taking weekend trips away with the family to go camping. I’ve been camping all over the world, but there are plenty of amazing spots in the UK that I visit again and again. Here are my top 3 favourites:
The Secret Campsite
The Secret Campsite isn’t as secretive as its name. I went there for the first time with my high school buddies and we were so awed with how the owner of the place have come up with such an idea of a campsite. The moment we’ve arrived on the parking area where the reception was also located at, we were instructed to follow a pathway that leads to a railway bridge where the campsite can be found. It was a great experience especially because all of us really wanted to have another unique adventure that time. From what I’ve read on their website, they are really building a campsite not a theme park that’s why our stay on that wonderful secret campsite ended up very relaxing and satisfying.
Next on my list is the Bloomfield Camping. The moment I’ve stepped my feet on this site made be so pretty since there were so many blossoming and colourful wild flowers around me. Every time I wake up on that camp, I feel as if I was living in a very fresh place. Not only that, I really enjoyed there as well because they offer different kinds of activities that even my kids have enjoyed.
Eco Camp UK at Wild Boar Wood
Have you ever heard of Eco Camp UK? Well for me, it’s a really great place to wander off and reconnect with nature since I’ve witnessed that my children themselves have let go of their gadgets. I know, I bet it was the most successful thing that I have achieved. I really wanted my children to let go of their gadget sometimes but most of my attempt failed. This is the first and finally, it worked. We sat around the campfire at night, talked a lot and had s’mores that we really loved! During the night, the air was so fresh that makes me cuddle with my wife. Oh I wish I can come back there anytime sooner because I know, my children would love it too.
There goes my list but I hope I can still visit more campsites soon. Aside from these places, there are absolutely more wonderful ones. I may have not yet visited those places but I would love too. You should also try to visit other ones and enjoy having your camping trip whether it is with your family and friends. Hit the road and camp now. Have another fantastic holidays!
