Camping options

Travelling in a motorhome is an excellent way to explore the UK, and it’s a very popular choice for people who want the freedom to travel at their own pace. However, finding the right places to park your motorhome can be a challenge, especially if you’re new to motorhome travel. In this blog, we’ll explore some of the best places to park a motorhome while travelling in the UK with your motorhome from the team at Easicampers Wolverhampton

  1. Campsites

Campsites are probably the most common place to park a motorhome while travelling in the UK. There are thousands of campsites across the country, ranging from basic sites with minimal facilities to luxury sites with swimming pools, restaurants, and entertainment. Many campsites offer designated areas for motorhomes, with facilities such as electric hook-ups, water, and waste disposal points. Some campsites also offer additional services such as laundry facilities, Wi-Fi, and on-site shops.

Campsites are generally a convenient option for motorhome parking, as they are located in popular tourist areas and offer a range of facilities to make your stay more comfortable. However, campsites can also be expensive, especially during peak season, and some sites may be fully booked during busy periods. It’s important to book your pitch in advance, especially if you plan to visit popular tourist destinations or travel during school holidays.

  • Motorhome parks

Motorhome parks are similar to campsites, but they are specifically designed for motorhomes and often offer additional facilities such as showers, toilets, and laundry facilities. Motorhome parks are generally smaller and more intimate than campsites, with a focus on providing a peaceful and relaxing environment for guests. Many motorhome parks are located in rural or coastal areas, making them ideal for travellers who want to explore the UK’s natural beauty.

Motorhome parks can be a good option for parking your motorhome, especially if you want a quieter and more relaxed atmosphere than a busy campsite. However, motorhome parks can also be more expensive than campsites, and they may not offer the same range of facilities and activities. Additionally, motorhome parks can be more difficult to find than campsites, as they are less common and may not be well signposted.

  • Aires

Aires are designated areas for motorhomes that are often found in France and other parts of Europe, but they are becoming more popular in the UK. Aires are usually located in car parks or other public areas, and they offer basic facilities such as waste disposal points and toilets. Aires are often free or very cheap, making them a popular option for budget travellers.

Aires can be a good option for parking your motorhome, especially if you are travelling on a budget or want to explore areas that are not well served by campsites or motorhome parks. However, Aires may not offer the same level of facilities and services as campsites or motorhome parks, and they can be difficult to find in some areas of the UK. Additionally, Aires may not be legal in all areas of the UK, and some local authorities may have restrictions on overnight parking in public areas.

  • Wild camping

Wild camping, or free camping, is the practice of parking your motorhome in a remote or secluded area and camping without facilities or services. Wild camping is legal in some parts of the UK, but it is generally not recommended in built-up areas or popular tourist destinations. In Scotland, wild camping is legal in most areas, but there are strict guidelines on where and how you can camp.
