Best Beach Campsites in the UK
Parents who want to take their kids on a camping holiday will do well to head for the coast. The coastal resorts of the UK are a paradise for camping lovers.
Speaking from a mother’s perspective, a camping holiday is filled with lots of fun and games. It is one way to give your children an experience that will entertain, educate and interest them at the same time. The UK has hundreds of miles of coastline with campsites while most of these campsites are finished to a high standard many families head south due to the milder climate. As someone who has actually enjoyed many camping experiences throughout the UK, the campsites listed below are some of the best coastal campsites in the UK:
Bryher Campsite (Isles of Scilly)
This campsite is located between two hills and this means it is a relatively sheltered location. The points in favour of this site are a sandy beach at Green Bay and a beautiful cove at Rushy Bay where family members can simply have lots of fun swimming and building sand castles. Food at this location can be campfire cooking. This is a huge treat for the kids because they can try out some of their own culinary inventions. In the likely event that the kids burn the dinner, the family can try local seafood in the vicinity of the site. This site is a great place for running around on the beach, swimming or just relaxing with the family without a care in the world.
The Treen Farm Campsite (Penzance)
It is just three miles from Land’s End and it is a short drive away from some great beaches in this area. If the kids have the skills, this is a great place to surf. If they cannot cope with the intricacies of surfing, they can have fun in the open air auditorium called the Minack Theater. On the days the weather decides to exhibit a bad mood, the Porthcurno Telegraph museum can grab the attention of the kids for a while until the rain stops.
Ayr Holiday Park
St Ives has been described by campers as the “Ah” Holiday Park which is not too far off the mark. This place is simply wonderful for kids. It has a special children’s play area and there is always a supply of hot water for kids who have spent the day out on the beaches. It’s also a perfect destination for sand and surfing.
The Slapton Sands Camping and Caravanning Club
Devon is perfect for energetic kids who love to play and have fun. This site can boast of a children’s playground and offers good food with a local flavour. More to the point, there is huge beach nearby and facilities for boat trips as well.
Hooks House Farm
North Yorkshire is a great destination for crabbing and fossil-hunting. These are activities the kids will love. The family can also take in a bit of walking and cycling on days the weather is in a great mood.
For a busy mother with lots of kids, a successful camping vacation is not easy to organize. Kids are choosy and difficult to satisfy. The good thing is that the sites above are great destinations and will satisfy even the most discriminatory kids in the UK.
