Hiring a motorhome from Easicampers can be a great way to spend Mother’s Day with your kids and visit your parents. With a motorhome, you’ll have the freedom to travel at your own pace and enjoy the comfort of a home on wheels. In this guide, we’ll take you through all the essential steps to plan a perfect motorhome trip with children to visit your parents.
- Choosing the right motorhome
Before setting off on your adventure, you need to choose the right motorhome that can accommodate your family comfortably. Easicampers offers a range of motorhomes that are perfect for families. You can choose from smaller models with two or three berths, or larger models with up to six berths. You should also check whether the motorhome has heating and air conditioning, as the weather can be unpredictable during March.
- Planning the route
The next step is to plan the route you’ll be taking during your trip to visit your parents. You should consider the distance, the time it will take to travel, and any attractions or landmarks you might want to see along the way. You should also check for any road closures or detours that may affect your journey.
If you’re travelling a long distance, you may want to plan to stop at some attractions or towns along the way. Some popular places to visit in the UK during March are the Lake District, Edinburgh, and the Cotswolds. You could also plan to stop at some National Trust properties, such as Stour head, Waddesdon Manor, or Chirk Castle.
- Packing essentials
As you’ll be travelling in a motorhome, it’s important to pack all the essentials for your trip. You should bring warm clothes, waterproof jackets, and comfortable shoes for your family. You can also bring some board games, books, and DVDs to keep your children entertained during the journey.
You should also pack a first aid kit, sunscreen, insect repellent, and any necessary medications. If you plan on cooking in the motorhome, you should bring cooking utensils, plates, cups, and cutlery. You should also pack some food and drinks for your journey and plan to stop at local stores for fresh produce.
- Visiting your parents
Mother’s Day is a great opportunity to visit your parents and spend time with them. You can plan some activities that your parents would enjoy, such as going for a walk, visiting a local museum or gallery, or having a meal together. You could also bring some homemade treats or flowers as a special gift for your mother.
If you have children, you could involve them in planning the visit and ask them to make some Mother’s Day cards or gifts for their grandmother. You could also plan some activities that your children would enjoy, such as playing games, going for a bike ride, or visiting a local playground.
- Camping with a motorhome
Camping with a motorhome is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and experience the freedom of travel. You can park your motorhome at a campsite or on private land with permission from the owner. Some popular campsites in the UK are:
- Lake District Camping: The Lake District has many campsites that are perfect for families, such as Eskdale Camping and Caravanning Club Site and Baysbrown Farm Campsite.
