Leading Campsites in Our Strong and United Kingdom

With the Rio Olympics finished, we can all feel proud to be British; and we can all experience that long lost emotion of being a United Kingdom, once again. There’s no need to attack your ‘opposition’ in Brexit – the vote is complete and we must now focus on our future as a United Kingdom, which will be leaving the European Union.


People can finally stop with their fact dropping of the pros and cons of Brexit, and focus on the amazing achievements of our British team. We can take this moment to forget the Brexit results, put our political differences aside and simply enjoy our home-grown talent on one of the biggest stages of the world – the Rio Olympics of 2016.


Not only can us Brits be proud of our Olympic achievements– with 27 gold medals so far, 67 medals overall – we can also be proud of our sporting achievements this summer, especially with the Welsh in the Euros; ignoring England’s participation of course.


With our new and reignited United Nation, where are the best campsites in our beautiful country?


The Mo Farah of Campsites in England

Because England is such a large proportion of the UK, we will look at some of the leading campsites across England. Even though the English are considered around the globe to be tea drinking maniacs who are always hiding under cover from the constant and never ending rain, us Brits are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful country – which is surrounded by nature and perfect for avid campers.


Camping in Surrey
Surrey is a beautiful location for campers, simply because of the wide variety of wooded areas, activities and quality campsites across Surrey. In Surrey, we especially recommend Farnham as a great location to experience typical Surrey camping; and in particular, Tilford Woods (Darwin Holiday Parks). At this campsite, you are able to hire a static caravan, lodge, cabin and hut, and tents are also welcome. There are also a number of campsite activities for the family, including fishing, sailing, indoor swimming, archery, climbing, a fitness club, outdoor living skills and tennis.


Camping in Shropshire
There are many camping activities available in Shropshire, as well as attractive and pretty campsites across the striking county. Lady Willington Camping and Caravan Park is a particular camping site we admire in Shropshire – due to its embrace of the local nature and its great location for exciting activities; including canoeing, cycling, fishing, golf, indoor swimming pool, sailing, surfing and water sports. Being a small site, you can make the most of the site – whether you want time alone or to make some new friends, you will be able to make the most of your stay in Shropshire. And with dogs allowed, the whole family can come along.


The Andy Murray of Campsites in Scotland

Scotland is a gorgeous part of the UK and with that natural magnificence it has to offer, you can expect to experience many of Scotland’s iconic locations for your camping adventures. There are many campsites across Scotland, with campsites in Aberdeenshire, Borders, Fife, Highlands, Inverness-shire, Isle of Skye and Perthshire to name just a few locations. One of our favourite locations in Scotland is the Scottish Borders.


Camping in the Borders will give you a number of options for activities, which will suit couples, friends or families. At Head Outside, we highly recommend Tibbie Shiels Inn Campsite in Selkirk. If you’re someone who loves listening to the sound of a lake and worship the appearance of glowing green grass and trees, this is the perfect campsite in Scotland for you. We guarantee that once you see the images on our Tibbie Shiels Head Outside page, you will be drawn in – they’re truly breathtaking, so make sure to check out the pictures.
