The perfect holiday begins with a great
location. And it’s no different for holiday goers who enjoy seeing the scenic
routes traveling in a motorhome.
Once you’ve purchased the perfect motorhome, there are a number of things to take into consideration when choosing the best motorhome parking spot. Things like price, facilities, and accessibility are all important factors you should think about.
With that in mind, I have analyzed dozens of
parking spots for motorhomes in the UK. With the important factors which I
mentioned above taken into account, here are the top four parking spots for
motorhomes in the United Kingdom.
1. Bay View Farm, Cornwall
for: a scenic experience with reasonable prices
Situated in South-East Cornwall, Bay View Farm
is a charming site with wonderful views over the water to St Giles Island. This
small site is family run and extremely welcoming.
Large groups of people will benefit from the
sites “camping snugs”, in which “you bring everything except the tent”.
There are plenty of amenities including hot
showers, Wi-Fi, and electric hookups. And for the history lovers, the Eden
Project is just 10 miles away.
Where to eat: The fishing village of Polperro is just minutes away, where you can buy fresh fish and other ingredients. A short walk along the coastal path and you’ll find Black Rock Resort, a friendly beach cafe with outdoor seating.
Price: Pitches are £12 in the winter and £20 in June. Camping snugs sleep two
adults and two children and are £35 in the winter and £50 in June.
2. Concierge Camping, West Sussex
for: luxury pitches with excellent facilities

3. Treen Farm, Penzance
for: a cheap and spontaneous getaway
Treen Farm, Penzance is the ideal place for
activity lovers, as its just a short walk from Cornwall’s best beaches and the
most popular spots for surfing. But that’s not all, the Minack Theatre with its
open-aired auditorium is just one of the many attractions close by.
The site itself has easy access and is well
situated in the cliff tops. Holiday goers will benefit from its on-site shop
that sells all local produce. Showers, lavatories, laundry, and washing-up
facilities are also available.
It’s worth noting that no pre-bookings are
taken for Treen Farm, so if you’re thinking of visiting, I’d recommend having
other options in the area.
to eat: On-site shop
Price: From £6 per adult and from £3 per children
4. Slapton Sands Caravanning
for: coastal views and village access
Last but not least, it’s Devon.
Slapton Sands Caravanning Club with its
relaxed atmosphere is a match made in heaven for elderly holiday goers. Located
on the heritage coast and just a quatre mile bus ride to the medieval town of
Dartmouth, it’s perfect for sightseeing, too.
The site itself is in a rural setting and is
enclosed by countryside. In total, there are 105 pitches, with a select few
having views over the bay.
A unique selling point for Slapton Caravanning
club is the weekly farmer’s market. In addition to this, there is an on-site
shop, Wi-Fi, and a local public house. Dogs are also welcome.
to eat: The Village of Slapton is a 5-minute drive,
where you’ll find local food shops selling fresh produce and a public house.
Price: Pitches are priced at £25.25 per night.
So, Which of These Is the Best
Parking Spot for a Motorhome in the UK?
Well, that depends on a number of things,
including your budget and requirements. Although some of these places have a
number of features in common, if you look closely, there are a number of unique
differences that suit a specific type of person.
Having said that, Concierge Camping is one of
the best luxury pitches there is. And what’s more, it’s dog-friendly and full
of excellent facilities.
