Top spots for camping

PETER CUE – founder and director of campervan, caravan, and motorhome insurance provider, – reveals some of the best hidden camping gems in Britain.


Little Trethvas Camping & Touring Site, Cornwall: An intimate and friendly campsite, Little Trethvas is on the unspoilt Lizard Peninsular – the perfect location from which to explore this corner of Cornwall. There are fantastic beaches, superb walks, and scenic drives through sleepy villages and wooded valleys, plus Iron Age settlements, barrows, and tin mines. Activities include fishing, sailing, off-road biking, and horseback riding.

Moss Side Farm Campsite, Cumbria: A hiker’s dream, this campsite is in a woodland valley, and has many footpaths leading from the farm. The main path runs along a disused railway line, going straight into Broughton, a village steeped in history. Other paths lead into the valleys of Seathwaite and Ulpha. Breathtaking walks will take you over streams, bridges, and open fields. The site is a ten minute drive from Coniston Lake, where sailing, canoeing, and kayaking are available. This warm, family-friendly campsite is also a working farm, where well-behaved dogs are welcome.

Narborough Fisheries, Norfolk: One for the fishing enthusiast, this campsite has five fishing lakes. Anglers can fish for carp and trout. Pitch up alongside a lake and enjoy the tranquil views or go wildlife spotting with a trip to Norkfolk’s Wildlife Trust’s chalk grassland of Narborough Railway Line.


Port Bàn Holiday Park: Port Bàn is a secluded haven on the unspoilt coast of the Knapdale Peninsula, where there are panoramic views across the sea to Islay and Jura. The sheer beauty of the landscape and the diversity of wildflowers and wildlife makes Port Bàn an interesting and peaceful retreat. There’s plenty to see and do: swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing, cycling, walking, or exploring the rockpools.

Queensberry Bay Park: On the windswept northern shores of the Solway Firth, this family-run caravan park is recommended for get-away-from-it-all breaks by the sea. The park only knows one way of life; the slow one! Maintaining the soothing atmosphere includes attention to detail, such as cutting the grass only on weekdays at specific times. Visitors can go bird-watching, walking, or cycling. There is a golf course close by, and a spa. Accommodation comprises pitches for tents, tourers and motorhomes, glamping S-pods, and fully-equipped caravans.


Sunnysands Caravan Park
: This site offers both laidback holidays and action-packed breaks. In the Snowdonia National Park and close to the seaside town of Barmouth, the park is fronted by miles of sandy beach and Cardigan Bay. Facilities include a bar, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a restaurant, and a play area.

Gwaun Vale Touring Park: A mile-and-a-half from Fishguard in the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, this site serves up a slice of the Welsh countryside with impressive views. Off-site, activities include tennis, sailing, horse riding, and canoeing.
