With Easter approaching, it’s time to think of fun activities that will keep the kids entertained and their imagination flowing over the school holidays!
While most people thinking of holidaying in sunnier climes, many often forget that England is one of the worlds top holiday tourist destinations with countless day trips and activities on our doorstep. As such, the region offers attractions, events and resources to suit all kinds of holidaymakers. With campervan hire, you have your transport and accommodation in one, meaning that you can tour all of England’s best attractions, stopping, shopping and cooking along the way.
With your home on wheels, you don’t need to worry about tight schedules, finding family friendly restaurants, coming back to the hotel when the kids get tired or carrying heavy suitcases filled with videogames, toys or baby items. At Bunk Campers, we offer fully equipped campervans for all tastes and budgets with comfy beds, cooking facilities, bathrooms, heating and electricity. Pick up a campervan that suits your requirements from Bunk Campers’ London Heathrow depot and get on the open road. If you are looking for a luxury motorhome with extra comforts and facilities, the Vista Plus is your best choice. On the contrary, if you still want to enjoy a classic road trip without pushing the boat out, Bunk Campers’ VW Ranger is waiting for you.
If you are looking for some inspiration on where to visit this Easter, read our top 5 campervan trip ideas in England and Wales that will delight both children and adults:
1. The inspirational Lake District
Reaching England’s largest National Park from our London Gatwick depot won’t take you a long time. With a full range of beautiful campsites to leave your camper, the Lake District is a gem of a place to visit with your family. The park offers activities and free events suitable for all ages and interests. Enjoy a cycle or ride around the District’s soaring mountains –locally known as fells. Join a guided walk –specially planned for children– around its quiet, remote valleys. Get on the water on one of the park’s breathtaking lakes or take a stroll along its sandy coastline. If travelling with teenagers, jump into some of the high adrenaline experiences or attend one of the 500 festivals and country shows that the Lake District run every year.
2. Awe-inspiring views from the White Cliffs of Dover
Landmark of the English Channel, you will wonder at the White Cliffs’ beauty and unique flora and fauna. Park up your camper and walk along coastal paths. After admiring the picturesque South Foreland Lighthouse, drive back to Dover and visit the Castle, where your children will let their imagination run. At night, put kids to bed and enjoy a glass of wine in your camper, while gazing the Cliffs illuminated by the Lighthouse’s gleam.
3. Action-packed holidays in Snowdonia National Park
Located in Wales, Snowdonia National Park is the perfect destination for a short break from our London Gatwick depot. There’s a great deal to discover in the park for all the family: from outdoors activities to music festivals, vertiginous railways or adventure centres, all set to a backdrop of stunning scenery. This Easter, don’t miss the chance to drive to the tallest mountain in Wales and England, the Snowdon, and its spectacular surroundings, which along the Llŷn Peninsula is a protected ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.
4. Beach vibes at the Cornish Coast
Enjoy a 200-mile road trip around Cornwall, named one of the top 500 Drives of a Lifetime by National Geographic. Admire Cornwall’s whitewashed seaside villages, Celtic ruins, steep cliffs and green countryside on your way. When you get tired of driving, park up your campervan and explore the region’s tiny hamlets and remote coves by walking along the South West Coastal Path, the longest footpath in England. Before moving on, cook in your camper and have lunch by the beach, admiring the breath-taking coastline that cascades into the Atlantic.
5. The natural beauty of Brecon Beacons
This Welsh National Park covers around 520 square miles filled with moorland, mountains, vibrant waterfalls, exceptional wildlife, castles, standing stones and local legends. Whether you’re planning a peaceful break with nature, cultural tour or an action-packed holiday, The Park offers plenty for all the family. Camp out in the fresh air, at the foot of the Black Mountain, or enjoy the sound of running water if you stay beside the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal.
