UK Camping Guide

Camping in the UK has never been more popular.

Camping in the UK has never been more popular. With the rise of the `staycation` and the recession still hitting home, more families than ever are discovering the joys of camping. Camping holidays make so much sense in today`s climate and they really offer the best of all worlds when it comes to home-style holidays. Hotels can be prohibitively expensive and by camping a week`s holiday can easily become a fortnight for the same price – or even less.

Camping doesn`t just mean tents and hitting the road in a tiny caravan. Despite the rise of `glamping`, it`s not for everyone. Converted caravans are a great option, with what can only be compared to apartments finished to a surprisingly high standard. There are different grades on offer, with Prestige and Platinum options for those who want more luxury. Family friendly options are extremely well appointed too. Things have changed since the days of the chilly caravan. These days they have luxury fittings, heating, proper fitted bathrooms and kitchens, flat screen TV and even towels provided. It`s just like a home from home. If you forget anything there is an onsite mini-supermarket so you can stock up, or just buy food for your evening meal.

If you like the great outdoors then a camping holiday is really worth considering. With outdoor leisure activities on site, you can send the children off to play tennis, go swimming or pony trekking whilst you enjoy a round of golf, or a peaceful afternoon fishing. Fishing often takes a back seat for those with busy, stressful lives and having fishing facilities on site is an ideal way to enjoy the sport and relax, without being too far away from the family. You can rest in the knowledge that the family is well catered for whilst you make the most of the river. You`ll need a rod licence – available from the Post Office – and your kit but then, for a small charge, you`ll be free to fish to your heart`s content at our Allhallows Holiday Park. You`ll find tench, carp, bream and rudd, as well as being able to beach cast onto the Thames Estuary during high tides. It`s a fisherman`s paradise.

After a hard day`s fishing you can eat on site at Allhallows, or take a trip into nearby Rochester for dinner. If you prefer, you can cook for yourselves as all caravans have full self-catering facilities. Camping sites tend to offer entertainment for children and adults, so there`s no need to venture too far.

If all this sounds up your street and you fancy a `staycation` for a change, then have a look at how much camping has improved in recent years. You`ll be amazed at how much things have changed. So banish your old ideas about camping and take a look at Haven Allhallows Holiday Park for the shape of things to come. They even give you a list of things to bring, but just don`t forget to pack your fishing rods. They`re just as important as packing the armbands and beach balls. It`s meant to be a holiday for everyone, after all and with Haven sites that simply couldn’t be easier.
