Now’s the perfect time to plan your escape to the country for rest and relaxation or go full steam ahead with activities on holiday.
Where should I go in the UK?
Get your camera ready and retreat to the countryside for these motorhome country escapes all over the UK.
There are few places better suited to quintessential countryside motorhome escapism than Warwickshire. Binton village is home to glorious gardens surrounded by greenery as far as the eye can see. About a mile north of the river Avon, you'll find plenty of spots to relax and wander along the waterside, watching narrowboats chug along under postcard-worthy scenery.
2. Peak District
Stanage Edge in the Peak District is a massive draw for walkers, runners and climbers, so there's always something going on. What's more, it was deemed impressive enough for Keira Knightley overlooking Hope Valley in Pride & Prejudice, and you can take a guided walk to see the filming location for yourself, as well as other treats for literary lovers such as the setting of Thornfield Hall in Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre.
South of the North Yorkshire Moors and north of the Humber, you'll find the winding Yorkshire Wolds Way. It's 79 miles long, officially from Hessle to Filey, with chalk topography folding in on itself followed by chequerboard fields and greenery to the horizon.
With 18,730 hectares of pines, heathland and broadleaves, Thetford is home to the UK’s largest man-made lowland forest. As well as exploring the woodland walks and picnic spots here, you can try your hand at archery, or even climb high into the trees on a Go Ape course.
5. New Forest
Just over a mile from Woolsbridge Manor Farm Caravan Park on the edge of the New Forest, Moors Valley makes for a great Dorset destination as another motorhome country escape. If you're looking for the quiet life, there are Roach, Rudd, Tench, Perch and Dace fishing opportunities between 16 June and 14 March from 8.30am (day tickets are needed and can be purchased from the visitor centre beforehand). Golfing and lessons are available on site, or you can ride the steam train along the banks of the Moors Lake.
