Ever fancied escaping the madness of the festive season and going camping at Christmas?
You’re not alone because, as it turns out, there are plenty of campsites open at Christmas.
We must put a disclaimer on this of course – while we are all hoping for the lockdown to end on 2 December, there is no guarantee that it will.
Therefore, we highly recommend checking the refund/cancellation policy of any campsite you book over the festive period.
For now, though, we’ve researched high and low to bring you a list of some campsites which are still currently taking bookings for Christmas Day.
All of the campsites here ask for a 15% non-refundable deposit, with the remainder due on arrival. The deposit is transferable during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to take a photo of your campervan conversion adorned in fairy lights and send it to us if you decide to go camping this December.
Devon campsite open at Christmas
Dartmoor Halfway Inn is on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, 10 minutes from Newton Abbott and 30 minutes from Torquay.
The campsite is set within the grounds of a pub/restaurant so you won’t have far to go for an evening meal and festive pint.
You can enjoy long walks, go cycling, canoeing or even climbing, and this campsite and pub are dogs friendly too.
Cornwall campsite open at Christmas
Mena Farm, located just four miles from Bodmin, is a quiet, family-friendly campsite making it perfect for a Christmas getaway.
Give this campsite a go if you fancy a festive cycle on one of the many bike routes running around the campsite, or if you love a spot of stargazing.
Nearby is the Eden Project and you’re just a 30-minute drive from the coast so you can blow the cobwebs out on Christmas Day.
Lincolnshire campsite open at Christmas
Alpacas, chickens and pigs will be your fellow residents at Homestead Fields Caravan and Camping, set on a two-acre smallholding.
Situated on the edge of Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are of course superb cycle trails and walks to be enjoyed once you leave the site.
Peace and quiet are what you can expect at this campsite, but the coast is nearby and it’s just a 40-minute walk (or five-minute drive) to the local pub for a change of scenery.
