Camping – something about it conjures up misty evenings fireside with all your favourite people, struggling to stay warm and dry against an increasingly damp and chilly night. While some may think of the concept of camping as something unbearable, nothing could be further from the truth. While traditional nylon tent on the ground kind of camping is still popular, glamping has increased in popularity and is gaining momentum. If you want to plan a camping trip for this summer, here are the top counties in the UK where camping is popular.
If you’re looking for the best campsites in Cornwall, you have to look at Perran Springs. The location is ideal for those who want to do more in Cornwall than just visiting the southern coastal areas like the Lizard, St Ives and Land’s End. If you’re aiming to visit more inland areas of Cornwall such as Perranporth, Bodmin Moor or coastal areas like Tintagel and Boscastle, Perran Springs is for you. Check them out:

Like Cornwall, Devon is a coastal part of the UK with a number of idyllic beaches and gorgeous inland areas to explore. With coastal towns such as Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Torquay and Paignton to choose from, you can see why a lot of people choose to explore Devon. Inland is the beautiful town of Okehampton with its old ruins and quaint pubs lining its backstreets.
Snowdonia may not be coastal – although it is close to the north coast of Wales as well as the Isle of Anglesey, but it’s got some of the most beautiful natural areas you could wish for. From lakes and forests, towering mountains and lush green valleys, camping in Snowdonia is a great family experience you’ll want to repeat time and again.
The south coast of Wales is just as beautiful as Snowdonia, with rugged cliffs and rough seas crashing against the rocks, giving way to sheltered harbour towns where you can explore pubs and museums about the region’s history. Visit the beautiful town of St David’s and be sure to hit up Whitesands Bay, a glorious long stretch of beach that will have you coming back for more sun, sea and sand.
So if you’re looking for the ultimate camping experience for this summer, consider one of these great counties for your summer holidays! Where will you choose? We’d love to hear from you!
