Carrying the Adventure into Winter

 If you’re feeling like you’ve missed out on a whole lot of adventures this year due to the lockdown restrictions, maybe this is the year for you to consider going on some wonderful winter adventures. Plenty of great campsites in stunning destinations stay open all year round, so there is no reason to limit your trips to the summertime. 


This winter, you could try a different kind of break to your usual one, visiting parts of the UK that seem to be even more attractive during the winter. If you usually plan more of a beach/coastal holiday trip, you could discover new ways of having fun adventures, maybe incorporating some winter sports. Here are our top picks for sites and locations for your winter adventures:  


Linnhe Lochside Holiday Park 


If you want to head somewhere picturesque and maybe combine some skiing or snowboarding in the Nevis Range (if the conditions are right), the Linnhe Lochside Holiday Park welcomes tourers and motorhomes. As the name suggests, the site is in a beautiful loch side setting, providing breathtaking views all year round. As well as the mountains to explore, you can take a boat across the loch, or visit some of the lovely little local villages. Hardstanding pitches with electric are available and there is a private beach on the site. 


Delamere Forest Club Site 


Delamere Forest is situated in Cheshire, close to Chester and is the perfect winter destination for anyone who loves walking through forests and there are also many different cycling trails with a range of difficulty levels. The facilities on the campsite are of great quality with hardstanding pitches with electric available. Many of the walks and bike trails can begin from the site itself, so it is an ideal location for all kinds of activities throughout the winter. There is a Go Ape site nearby and if you fancy a day out, the historical city of Chester is good for shopping, restaurants, or a scenic walk along the River Dee. 


Keswick Camping and Caravanning Club Site 


The Lake District is another excellent option for in the winter, with plenty to do and see. The Keswick Camping and Caravanning Club Site is close to the beautiful Derwentwater and is surrounded by mountains. It is also a good place to access other lakes such as Windermere and Ullswater and there are endless opportunities for walks of all difficulty levels. The site offers hardstanding pitches with electric and even the hardstanding pitch super service. 


Canterbury Camping and Caravanning Club Site 


A winter stay at this campsite gives you the option to explore both the coast and the countryside. The famous Canterbury Cathedral and other historical buildings are close by and you can easily get to London by train in around an hour. Howletts Wild Animal Park is a great day out and is open all year round apart from Christmas Day. The campsite has a number of pitch options including hardstanding with electric. 


Your adventures don’t need to be put on hold just because it is getting a bit colder, simply wrap up warm, get some waterproofs and you’re ready for winter adventures. You also need to make sure your vehicle is ready for winter too, so now is the perfect time to buy your high-quality waterproof cover from Pro-Tec to keep your vehicle protected through all weathers.
