Campsites reopen: The five best UK camping spots to visit when lockdown is over

Camping may well become the latest holiday trend to sweep the nation this summer. Currently, the Foreign Office and Commonwealth (FCO) is saying that Britons cannot travel abroad unless it is “essential”. The organisation is also saying that people can only stay the night at their primary residence, so camping and holiday parks are off-limits.

But many are now looking at camping holidays as the answer to their future holiday prayers.

Cool Camping marketing manager James Warner Smith said that there is a higher demand for camping now due to travel restrictions and the coronavirus.

He said: “The demand for camping is clearly there, and with foreign holidays on the backburner for the time being, people appear to be looking closer to home for their holidays this year.

“We also expect to see a lot more first-time campers in 2020.

“City breaks may look very different if galleries, museums and leisure facilities face restrictions, and consumers are, naturally, looking to the countryside when they plan their breaks.

“With the usual holidays for some people seeming less accessible or appealing, we expect many will try camping for the very first time.”

Here’s a list of five camping hotspots to test out once lockdown rules have been lifted.

Farrs Meadow, Wimborne, Dorset

On the outskirts of the gorgeous market town of Wimborne lies Farrs Meadow, a rural, relaxed and unique camping hotspot just 20 miles away from the south coast.

The campsite is car-free and has up-cycled horse boxes, compost loos and disused cattle troughs for washing up.

There is the option to bring your own tent, stay in a yurt or a converted stable.

The campsite is just 15 minutes outside of the delightful town of Wimborne and 20 miles away from the stunning beaches of the south coast which include the millionaire’s haven of Sandbanks.
