Top 7 campsites to visit this Summer

I don’t often accept guest posts as I like to make sure I bring you totally relevant material. However, when Trekwear approached me with this I was more than happy to accept it. These campsites look fabulous!

Not all these campsites allow campfires but are in such stunning locations I may have to bend my rules.

My favourite is number 5.  Very cool!

Our Friends Trekwear have been wondering around the UK to find the very best campsites to visit during the holidays.

With summer on its way and a heat wave set for June, it’s the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Why not extend your ventures into the countryside with a spot of camping? Whether you are looking for a coastal site, one with access to the hills or wooded areas, this list of the top 7 campsites in the UK should have something that takes your fancy.

1. Beadnell Bay, Northumberland

Located by the sea at Beadnell Bay, this campsite gives the feel of being tucked away, yet is within easy reach of Seahouses. Also close by are Bamburgh and Lindisfarne with their impressive castles, which are brilliant destinations for a cycle ride. Being by the sea means that fish and chips are both fresh and delicious at the end of a long day walking or cycling.
