campsites open winter england

England is an underrated destination for campervan holidays. With a range of incredible towns, mountain summits and lakes to discover, it’s a treasure trove of experiences to remember.

You may be surprised, but winter is a perfect time to hire a campervan in England. Think of the cheaper rates, wider choice, quieter destinations and unique natural wonders such as the Lake District that is best enjoyed when travelling to England in the winter season. Plus, the crisp, outdoor air and onboard heating in all our vehicles mean you get the best of both worlds.

To help you plan your winter motorhome hire in England we have compiled a few go-to websites showing campsites open all year round in England.


1. UK Camping and Caravanning Club

As part of your booking, we offer free temporary membership to The Camping & Caravanning Club Privilege Scheme. You can benefit from up to 30% off participating campsites.

In England, the Club suggests a number of campsites to pitch up during the winter including Braithwaite Fold (Lake District) and Kingsbury Water Park (West Midlands).

2. PitchUp

PitchUp is another website we recommend when looking for campsites. They have a really handy locator where you can filter your search by availability and region, among other features. When selecting England campsites open all year round, 313 campsites are displayed! A great choice for your winter campervan hire!

3. UK Campsites

This is another website that features campsites in the UK, Ireland and some European countries. It has a special section for winter camping and campsites are listed by region.


Wild Camping

For campervans and motorhomes, Wild Camping is illegal across the UK & Ireland although in many parts is tolerated, provided a common sense approach is taken and leave no trace principles are followed. There is always the risk of being moved on – especially if it is considered that you are causing an obstruction.

Remember, there is now a vast array of campsites with picturesque locations across the UK and Ireland, use these first before you consider Wild Camping in a campervan. These sites are geared up for motorhomes, have all the facilities as well as a warm welcome and great local advice to visitors. Not to mention that if you’re staying locally on a campsite you’re contributing much-needed income to the local economy!
