Family holidays are the highlight of every year for most families in the UK. In 2020-2021, we saw a sharp rise in the number of families who opted for staycations over jetting abroad, and with that, more and more people took the challenge and embarked on their very own family camper conversion.
Whether your van is now fully complete, or if you are still finalising those finishing touches, booking your next family holiday is a great way to celebrate your hard work and give your loved ones a staycation experience that they will never forget. If you are in need of a little holiday inspiration, this blog will guide you through the very best places to visit in your family camper conversion.
North York Moors National Park, Yorkshire
Also known as ‘God’s’ country, North York Moors National Park is a place of true beauty that makes for the perfect escape into the countryside. A holiday to the Moors will force you and your family to take a step back and appreciate nature, as you will find yourself hiking through beautiful countryside and living amongst spectacular wildlife. The Moors has several campsites which welcome family camper conversions of any size and will accommodate you with all of the facilities that you need for your trip.
If you fancy a bite to eat, there are plenty of local pubs and restaurants that serve delicious food for all of the family to enjoy. Nearby Yorkshire also has a host of attractions for kids, including Go Ape Dalby, Lightwater Valley and The Web Adventure Park. There is also a great range of museums, shops and art for all to see.
The Cornish Riviera, Cornwall
While Italy may be off the table for your next campervan trip, there is no reason why you can’t find yourself lounging beside a beautiful Rivera. The Cornish Rivera is one of the most stunning locations in the country and is a popular spot for campervan holidaymakers. Unlike the Italian counterpart, the Cornish Rivera consists mainly of large oceans that are great for water sports, swimming and boat trips.
Cornwall is the surfer’s capital of the UK and has plenty to offer families. You can never go wrong with a family trip to a sandy beach, or you could venture into one of the county’s seaside villages and enjoy local crafts, food and goods. Cornwall is also home to the Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, which are the perfect places for your kids to get stuck into nature.
Keswick, The Lake District
Another idyllic location that will leave you and your family in awe of the views is Keswick. Located in the Lake District, Keswick has a population of just 5000, but it has plenty to offer when it comes to the jaw-dropping countryside and spectacular views.
A campervan trip to Keswick is the perfect holiday for families who love the outdoors. The area is great for cycling, climbing, hiking, fishing, and water sports. If you are fairly new to outdoor living, there are a number of teaching centres around Keswick for you to learn something new during your stay! You will also find a delightful spread of restaurants and cafes to choose from which will leave you feeling satisfied at every meal.
If you and your family would prefer a city break, Cardiff (the Capital of Wales) may just be the perfect campervan conversion location for you. Cardiff is a lively city with an array of bars, shops, restaurants and activities to choose from. The city is also rich in history with a number of astonishing castles to visit.
There truly is something for everyone in Cardiff. If you do decide to bring your family camper conversion holiday to this city, you will find some excellent campsites that accommodate all types of tourists. Pontcanna Fields campsite is a popular option that puts you in the heart of the city and will provide you with all the facilities that you may need.
