Camping is incredibly popular all over Britain’s green and pleasant lands and for good reason. With the nation covered in rural countryside settings, those who wish to get away for a weekend or short break can pick up a few necessities and live out in the wild for a period of time, becoming one with nature.

Here a just a few of the best camping sites available:

Overstrand, Norfolk

Perched beautifully on the coast, this camping site features some of Norfolk’s flat and gorgeous terrain, making it an ideal camping spot overlooking the water. The beach is just a short walk away which will appease children and their parents and the area consists of many trails which lead into the seaside town of Cromer.

Eweleaze Farm, Dorset

Another site set high in the countryside hills; Eweleaze sits above the Jurassic Coast of Dorset where families can band together to go fossil-hunting or enjoy a day relaxed on the beach. There’s an organic farm nearby which usually sets up stalls offering delicious fresh food for campers and the private beach close-by makes it quite a privileged stay.

Vintage Vacation, Isle of Wight

This rather unique site works in a strange way; the campers rent out the entire field and are provided with an Airstream and some decoration kits. Very retro and a perfect little spot close to the coast, this area is very attractive to tourists on holiday for the annual music festival and there are many services in the area which cater to guests such as boating, bowling and ice-rinks.

Cae Du, Wales

This peaceful little camp is perfect due to how it’s set-apart from the rest of Wales. It’s a great spot to get away from the urban and built-up areas and enjoy some peace and quiet whilst surrounded by beautiful ocean views. For those staying, it’s almost common sense to have a bonfire lit up and to watch the sun sink slowly over the luminous mountains on the far side of the water.

Thistledown Farm, Gloucestershire

Become one with nature in this quaint little spot enveloped by shades of wild flowers and foliage; this 70-acre site is vast and spacious, allowing for a lot of flexibility in terms of setting up camp. It’s ideal for an older generation who care little for the seaside-offerings and perfect for nature-lovers.

Wherever you decide to go, ensure that you’re well prepared with a good tent and camping equipment.
