The UK is a beautiful place to go camping and there are plenty of travel destinations for campers to enjoy.
One of my personal favourites is the Lake District, in particular the area around Windermere which oozes beauty. With its rolling hills, enchanting green and brown colours and focal lake it will be a demanding camper or backpacker who isn’t impressed.
Bowness makes a fantastic base with a huge variety of B&Bs and other charming accommodation to choose from. For campers though there are no reasons to feel left out. Campgrounds are aplenty and it’s easy to find a great spot that is hidden away from the crowds. Visit the land of Beatrix Potter, sail around the Lake or wander across the tumbling hills and soak up the brisk British air that inspired countless authors.
If the country walks take it out of you and you’re ready for a break then head out to Kendal and grab some of its famous mint cake. If you continue to buzz with energy long into your stay then maybe you should tackle the Old Man of Coniston – one of the most challenging hill walks around.
The Lake District is famous for a reason – it is a fantastic destination which continues to please every camper and backpacker that crosses its path.
