It’s the time of year we’ve all been waiting for! The sun is shining and that annual family camping holiday you booked back in the dreary winter months has finally come around. Whether you’re a seasoned camper or new to the party, it’s easy to forget something. We’re sure you’ve got the essentials covered but don’t forget those little things that make nights under canvas at your favourite caravan park so fun and memorable…
There’s nothing like the smell of bacon to entice even the sleepiest of people out of the tent in the morning. Dust of the stove and mini frying pan and cook up a storm for your friends and family.
If you have one or more canine members of your family then you’ll know that going on holiday without your best buddy just doesn’t’ feel right. Best of British has loads of dog friendly campsites to choose from so don’t forget to pack the dog bed, food and Frisbee.
Once the sun goes down, the summer evenings can be a little nippy. Make sure everyone is kept happy and in high spirits by keeping warm. Have a good supply of blankets, thick socks and jumpers on hand to keep cosy. Sit back, catch the sunset and enjoy a spot of stargazing.
Let’s face it; outdoor pursuits in England are at the mercy of the great British weather. But that doesn’t put us holidaymakers off! Whether you’re at a coastal campsite or countryside touring park, as long as you’ve got an emergency pair of wellies and the odd umbrella stashed away in the boot nothing is going to stop the summer fun.
Camping lights and torches are essential bits of kit. Head torches are great for those middle of the night trips to the toilet block. Give each member of your family their own torch to cut out nighttime disturbances. Childhood memories are bound to include huddling down in a sleeping bag and reading by torchlight. You can even use them to play a version of tag!
Camping holidays are a great opportunity to switch off from the telly, disconnect from the Internet and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun! Our child friendly holiday parks have a fantastic range of facilities for the kids – from adventure playgrounds to mini golf. Don’t forget to pack a football and the playing cards and you’ve got holiday entertainment covered.
Who doesn’t love sitting around the campfire and toasting marshmallows over the flames? Pack some skewers or improvise with sticks if needed. Get the perfect colour and indulge!
