Camping spots to take your campervan in autumn

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 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 it’s 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”.


Red Squirrel Campsite, Scottish Highlands

Escape the rat race for a few days with a stay at Red Squirrel Campsite in the Scottish Highlands. With free WiFi on site you’ll still be able to check your emails should you wish.

There are lots of facilities on site including a £1-per-go battery charging point and 25 acres of countryside to camp in. Enjoy an autumnal campfire under the stars and pretend you’re anywhere else in the world.

Great Kellow Farm, Cornwall

Explore the quaint village of Polperro from this laid-back site complete with electric hook ups for campervan conversions.

It’s about a two hour drive in your campervan from North Devon and, when you arrive, there’s a downhill walk into the centre of Polperro which has cosy pubs with live entertainment, fish and chip shops to fuel your walk back up the hill and a lovely beach complete with a small cave.

The campsite itself boasts large shower/toilet rooms which are spotlessly clean, plus the most incredible views out over Polperro bay.

Slapton Sands, South Devon

A lovely site to take your campervan conversion on the South Devon Heritage Coast with wonderful views of the sea. Walk in one direction and end up in Slapton Sands where you’ll find The Tower pub, or head in the opposite direction for a walk on the beach.

Dogs are welcome and you’ll find electric hook ups, WiFi and showers. The site is lined with trees so, time your visit right, and you’ll enjoy views of orange autumn leaves during your stay.

Mablethorpe, Lincolnshire

Situated just a mile from the Lincolnshire seaside coast, you’ll enjoy some beautiful autumnal walks and, if you’re super lucky, you might even spot seals who come to the beach at Donna Nook to give birth at this time of year!

Nearby Mablethorpe has shops, traditional pubs, fish and chip shops and even crazy golf to entertain the kids.

Kingsmead Centre, Mid Devon

No autumn campervan trip would be complete without a walk where you can kick up some crispy golden leaves as you go.  

Part of the campsite boasts a beautiful woodland area where you can enjoy a true slice of wilderness. Campers are invited to literally pitch their tents wherever they find a natural clearing, so be careful not to disturb them!

Sectioned off into a top and bottom field, there are electric hook ups for campervans and you’ll even find two fishing lakes built exclusively for Kingsmead Centre.


Hopefully you’re feeling inspired and ready to pack up, head off in your campervan conversion and escape the world for a few days or more this autumn.
