Get Outdoors: Top UK Family Campsites

If you’re looking to get active in the great outdoors this summer then there’s nothing better than a great camping holiday – it’s a UK tradition and with more Britons than ever enjoying a ‘staycation’ there’s plenty to take advantage of.

If you’ve never been or need some extra supplies make sure to visit the camping shop to make sure you and your family are happy campers!

Here’s five of the best!

Ilfracombe, Devon

Head to the ‘Hidden Valley’ and explore this massive 27 acre site which has tent pitches, lodges and caravan parking. There’s plenty for the younger kids with adventure playgrounds, swings, slides and zip wires and for the adults in need of some ‘me’ time you can take advantage of a massage or spa treatment.

Little Dewchurch, Herefordshire

Camp out in a wooden tipi for a unique camping experience that kids will love. According to the website the resort is 100% child friendly and there are plenty of activities to keep the kids busy, a wall fenced wood, bike tracks and sandpits. See for more details.

Bosworth Water Trust, Warwickshire

Camp near the shores of this beachy lake for some water filled adventures. Little ones can paddle or swim in the shallower waters, while older ones can enjoy kayaking, windsurfing, sailing, taking out a pedalo or fishing. As well as watersports there’s also crazy golf, dodgems, bungee trampolining and a pirate ship playground. Something for families looking for plenty of action. Visit the Trust site for more information.

Watertop Farm, Ballycastle

Right next to a working farm this is a great option for animal lovers and you might even get to see some sheep being sheared! There are also pony treks, an assault course, play area and pedal go-karts to keep the kids busy. The Giants Causeway is only half an hour drive away too. Visit the website for more details.

Tan Troed, Brecon Beacons

This Acorn Family Holidays site has pre-erected tents which have solid floors and spring beds and has plenty of things to do. The site is just a mile from the Llangorse Lake and there’s abseiling, kayaking, zip-wiring and archery. Tuition is free and meals are included in the price.
