Lakes Gems

The Lake District in the UK is a stunningly beautiful region with plenty of popular attractions, but if you’re looking to explore some hidden gems off the beaten track in a campervan, there are several lesser-known places worth visiting. Here are some recommendations:

  1. Buttermere: While it’s not exactly unknown, Buttermere is a quieter alternative to the more popular lakes like Windermere and Derwentwater. It offers serene waters, scenic walks, and a more peaceful atmosphere.
  2. Ennerdale Water: This is one of the least developed and quietest of the lakes in the region. It’s a great place for wild camping and offers excellent opportunities for hiking and stargazing.

  7. Ullswater’s Northern Shores: While Ullswater itself is popular, its northern shores tend to be quieter. Explore places like Martindale and Howtown for a more secluded experience.
  8. High Sweden Bridge: This is a hidden gem for those who enjoy short hikes with rewarding views. The bridge itself offers panoramic vistas of the surrounding countryside.

Motorhome Ideas

Better than going abroad

Motorhome holidays in the UK have several advantages that can make them a compelling option compared to going abroad. Here are some of the key advantages:

Cost Savings: Motorhome holidays can be more budget-friendly than international travel. You can save on airfare, expensive hotels, and dining out by cooking your own meals in the motorhome and staying in campsites or free parking areas.

Flexibility: With a motorhome, you have the freedom to change your plans on a whim. You’re not tied to hotel reservations or fixed itineraries, allowing you to explore the UK at your own pace.

Scenic Beauty: The UK is home to stunning natural landscapes, from rolling countryside to rugged coastlines. You can enjoy the beauty of the Lake District, the Scottish Highlands, the Welsh valleys, and more, all within a relatively small geographic area.

Cultural Diversity: The UK offers a rich tapestry of cultures and history. You can explore ancient castles, visit charming villages, and experience diverse traditions and languages without leaving the country.

Convenience: You don’t have to deal with the hassles of international travel, such as passports, visas, currency exchange, and language barriers. The UK uses the same currency and language as you, making communication and navigation easier.

Pet-Friendly: If you’re traveling with pets, motorhome holidays in the UK are a great choice. Many campsites and areas are pet-friendly, allowing your furry friends to join in on the adventure.

Home Comforts: Modern motorhomes come equipped with many of the comforts of home, including a kitchen, bathroom, and sleeping facilities. You have the convenience of a mini-home on wheels, which can make traveling with family or a group more comfortable.

Avoiding Crowds: Some travellers prefer to avoid crowded airports and busy tourist destinations, especially in the current climate. A motorhome allows you to maintain social distancing and choose less crowded spots to explore.

Environmental Impact: Traveling within the UK by motorhome can be a more environmentally friendly option compared to international flights, as it reduces your carbon footprint.

Exploring Off-the-Beaten-Path: Motorhomes give you the flexibility to explore hidden gems and lesser-known destinations that might not be on the typical tourist trail.

Local Cuisine: You can sample local foods and products in different regions of the UK, supporting local businesses and farmers along the way.

While motorhome holidays in the UK offer many advantages, it’s essential to consider your preferences, budget, and travel goals when deciding. Whether you explore the UK or venture abroad, both options have their unique appeal, and the best choice ultimately depends on your preferences and circumstances.
