Autumn has arrived which means campervan season is nearly over right? Wrong!
In fact, we think it might even be the best time of year to pack up your jumpers and your hot chocolate and head out of Devon to explore the UK in your campervan conversion.
Picture toasting marshmallows over an open campfire or dunking biscuits into steaming hot cups of tea. Heaven! Better yet, there’ll be fewer crowds around meaning more space to wander and explore.
With that image firmly in your mind, we’ve put together a list compiling some of the top autumn campervan sites to enjoy a late getaway in the UK.
Bath Chew Valley, Bath
This adult-only campsite is, quite simply, stunning. Enjoy five-star facilities nestled amongst a fishing lake, extensive lawns, flowerbeds and shrubs.
The park is open all year round, though booking is essential, and you can lose yourself in the surrounding Somerset countryside or head to a nearby pub to enjoy a pint in front of a roaring fire. Autumnal bliss.
Cheesewring Farm Campsite, Bodmin
Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of Bodmin Moor, Cheesewring is a family-run business boasting lots of perks you don’t often find at your average campsite.
There’ll be chickens clucking around at your feet (and you can even buy their super tasty eggs should you wish), metal fire pits available and logs for purchase plus, if you’re lucky, you may even get a cream tea on arrival.
Fear not if your campervan conversion is tight on space - there’s even a cabin where you can prepare food (complete with a microwave!) or take advantage of a home-cooked breakfast or dinner on request.
Ancient Briton, South Wales
The Ancient Briton, as you might have guessed, is a pub complete with its own camping meadow next door. Inside the pub, there’s a traditional log fire to warm chilly hands and feet which have spent too long out in the autumnal air, plus real ales and ciders to whet your whistle.
As well as the log fire, campervan guests can enjoy the heated shower block plus electric hook-up points. Ancient Briton is a great spot from which to explore the Brecon Beacons and there are also caves to discover in the nearby area.
Beech Croft Farm, Peak District
A shower block with underfloor heating? That’s what we call luxury camping. This dog-friendly campsite prides itself on being environmentally friendly and has won awards for its conservation efforts.
There are walking and cycling routes a-plenty surrounding Beech Croft Farm and two pubs offering food within a 30-minute walk.
You’ll enjoy peace and quiet in the heart of the Peak District, but there’s also WiFi if you want to download a movie to snuggle up with in your campervan.
The Quiet Site, Lake District
With a field located on the slopes of the Little Mell Fell, The Quiet Site enjoys great views in a fabulous location.
Perhaps its best selling point is The Quiet Bar complete with an enormous open fire for those truly autumnal vibes. It’s also open every night of the year and has been described (according to The Quiet Site’s website!) as the ‘best campsite bar in Britain”.
