Which campsites are open at Christmas in 2020?

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 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 dog 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 is 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.

Scotland campsite open at Christmas

At South Whittlieburn Farm, as the name suggests, you’ll be surrounded by sheep, horses, ponies and free-range hens who lay eggs for guests to purchase.

There are restaurants and shops in nearby Largs which is two miles away plus lovely winter walks through the surrounding countryside.

TripAdvisor guests say the site is in a beautiful location with clean facilities including a brand-new shower block area.

Somerset campsite open at Christmas

For a truly no-frills camping experience head to Ebborways Farm

In their own words, Ebborways offers an ‘authentic camping experience’ with no set pitches, showers or electricity.

Facilities are limited to a water supply and compostable loos, so either avoid this campsite if you want luxury Christmas camping or make sure your campervan conversion has everything you need in advance.

Wiltshire campsite open at Christmas

Pop off to see the Westbury White Horse on Salisbury Plain or head to one of Blackland Lakes’ two fishing lakes.

The site is family-friendly, and you can also bring your four-legged friends along to explore the Wiltshire countryside with you.

There are a mix of paddocks and larger open areas, making the campsite suitable for all parties from small tents up to large campervans.
