Cool British Sites For Campers

Outdoor adventure. Extreme sports. Great bonding. Exciting activities. Unforgettable summer. All these and more await campers from different walks of life. It is not just all about amusement but an experience that gives room for learning and growth, to prepare them in the real challenges to be encountered.

Here is a list of grounds in the United Kingdom that are conducive for campers to pitch their tents and stay for an overnight or two.

* Low Wray, Windermere, Lake District

Campers of all ages would love this place because the site has flat grassy areas for larger tents. If you get there early, you can pitch in the wooded corners on the lake shore. It is quiet and secluded with panoramic views of the fells and the sound of the water lapping gently against the shore, on a warm summer's evening. The Drunken Duck pub is within easy walking distance if you fancy a good meal, but you can't beat a barbecue and a few glasses of wine by the lake in the dusk on a balmy twilight.

According to Bolton Roz Kaufman, “I had never camped in my life until 13 years ago when at the age of 40 and sailing on Lake Windermere with my husband, we noticed a magical-looking wooded area with a small beach. It was a paradise to behold”. www.nationaltrust.org.uk

* Flamingo Land Holiday Village, North Yorkshire

This is fantastic for campers that arrive by family. The facilities are terrific with a luxury pool across from the pitch area. It is well organized and feels very safe especially for those who have toddlers with them. The play areas are great and within sight of the tents. The shower and laundry areas are well kept. Flamingo Land theme park has everything from fairground rides to a wonderful zoo, all set around a beautiful walk. www.flamingoland.co.uk

* Norman’s Bay, Pevensey, East Sussex

If you love the crystal blue waters with white sandy shorelines then this site is suited for you. It can be a bit windy though but nothing compares listening to the sound of the sea at night and seeing the sun rise above the water in the morning. The beach goes on for miles. The site has clean toilets and showers with a small shop. Behind it is a railway line which provides a friendly rumble when the trains pass. Cross at the level crossing and you'll find one of the best pubs in East Sussex, The Star, which has a fabulous menu and an amazing outdoor playground for children. www.ukcampsite.co.uk


* Tom’s Field, Langton Matravers, Dorset

A mature site which has plenty of shelter giving campers that utmost privacy and spectacular view of the sea. There are no fancy facilities and the shop has an air of days gone by, which all adds to the rustic charm of the place. The coastal path nearby offers excellent walking opportunities with good pubs in a walking distance. www.tomsfieldcamping.co.uk


* Glanllyn Lakeside, Bala, North Wales

Located on the shores of Lake Bala, in Snowdonia National Park, it offers a lot of watersport activities like parasailing, windsurf, canoeing and kayaking. Campers can even simply mess in and swim. There is a narrow-gauge railway runs beside the lake from Bala to Llanuwchllyn. The Tryweryn National Whitewater Centre, acclaimed for its rafting and canoeing, is five miles away. Great cycle rides can be started from the site. It is also well situated for hill walkers, as it isclose to the foot of mountains such as Aran Benllyn and Cader Idris. www.glanllyn.com
