On a Holiday Budget? Try Camping!

Wed 30 May, 2018

According to the Holiday Habits Report, more people than ever are planning to take a holiday this year, despite the economic downturn. Holidays are proven to be good for your health, providing a break from work and everyday stress. They are also a good way to get outdoors and spend quality time with partners and family, doing fun things together and making lasting memories. 

If you’re on a tight budget, a holiday may seem like a luxury you really can’t afford. But what if you could find a place to stay for as little as £10 a night? What if you could book at short notice without complicated planning and insurance, and what if you could just take off when the weather looks promising? Camping could be the perfect answer. 

It’s no coincidence that camping is growing in popularity, whether you are a family on a budget, a solo outdoor adventurer or a couple wanting a romantic getaway. With no costly flights and airport delays to worry about, your laidback camping holiday starts the moment you leave home and you don’t have to go far. 
Camping in a tent is not for everyone, but Campstead.com has a range of different options that take camping to a whole new level. You’ll find campsites, caravan parks and glamping sites near the beach, on working farms, close to city attractions, beside lakes and rivers, in forests and Dark Sky Parks, near waterparks and theme parks and in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. See which of these camping options suits you best.

Modern Camping 

Campstead has the best choice of top campsites across the UK. Modern showers, camp kitchens and private plots are often complemented by swimming pools, shops, restaurants, kids’ activities and play areas. Opt for a pitch with electricity and you can have power to make camping super-easy. If you fancy arriving to a tent that is erected and fully equipped, checkout glamping!

Caravans and Motorhomes

If you don’t have your own tent and equipment, consider touring with a caravan or fully equipped Motorhome. Many campsites have pitches for touring caravans so you can bring your own bed, kitchen, clothing and even bicycles if you wish. Electric hook-ups allow you to enjoy a fridge, heating and TV with gorgeous scenery on the doorstep.

Luxury Glamping 

Glamping is posh camping, often in quirky or unusual glamping pods, converted shepherd’s huts, tree houses and glamping domes. Arrive to find everything clean and ready for you, from proper beds, kitchenettes and bathrooms to wood burners and perhaps a hot tub on your private deck. We have luxury lodges, spacious tipis, glamping yurts and safari tents across the UK. It really isn’t camping at all!
