    More travellers than ever are dusting off their tents ready for a summer of staycationing. So where are the most stunning spots to pitch up in the UK?

    It’s no surprise that, compared to this time last year, there has been a 156 per cent increase in the search term “UK staycation”. Though lockdown is easing and hotels are reopening, one of the most popular ways to make the most of the warmer weather on its way will be the more old-fashioned, outdoors option: camping or caravan parking. 

    High on many staycation-seekers’ wish list is natural beauty; something lots of people have missed over the past few months, but that Britain has in spades. From Devon and Dorset in the south of England to the Peak and Lake District in the north, and Scotland’s wild Highlands if you keep on driving, how do you choose where to set up camp this summer?

    Leading caravan insurance provider Safeguard has done some of the hard work for you. Their analysis of Instagram’s location hashtags reveal the nation’s favourite UK staycation hotspots. Coming out on top was charming Devon, where you can stay at Langstone Manor Holiday Park near the vibrant market town of Tavistock. Within the Dartmoor National Park not far from the beautiful Tamar Valley AONB, there are even glamping pods for those who crave the outdoors without discomfort.

    Although all of the below campsites and caravan parks reopened on 4th July 2020, it’s important holidaymakers get in touch to check opening arrangements, any safety precautions in place and book in advance to avoid disappointment. Happy camping!
