In case you managed to avoid television and shop windows for the past month, this week is Valentine’s Day. We’ve compiled our recommendations for you to have a romantic weekend away in your caravan or motorhome. If you haven’t got a caravan or motorhome handy, don’t panic – these sites also offer their own accommodation.
Camping Bois De Boulogne, Paris
Where better to have a romantic weekend than in the City of Love itself? Set right in the middle of Paris’ 16th arrondissement, it is the perfect place to explore the city. The site offers a shuttle bus to the top of Ave Charles De Galle, to make it even easier to experience all Paris has to offer.
Cheddar Petruth Paddocks, Somerset
This laid back campsite is ideal base to explore the nearby caves and lovely Cheddar Village. In the evenings, you can have firewood delivered to your caravan or motorhome, so you can roast marshmallows, cook dinner or just huddle up round an open fire.
Loch Ness Holiday Park, Loch Ness
For something a little different, you can spend the weekend by the shores of the famous Loch Ness. Tours and cruises across the water operate year-round – and even if monster-hunting isn’t your thing, the surrounding scenery is sure to please.
Kelham Hall and Country Park, Nottinghamshire
Set in the grounds of the stunning Kelham Hall, this campsite is ideal for couples who want scenic country walks, through the nearby woodland and by the River Trent. Also within visiting distance are Newark Castle, Lincoln Castle and Lincoln Cathedral.
Yapham Holds Farmhouse, York
This campsite has plenty to offer for couples that like to be busy. Horse riding, fishing, golf and water sports are all available nearby, and with the stunning city of York only a short distance away, there’s plenty to fill your Valentine’s weekend. For the more unconventional, it’s also Viking Weekend at the famous Jorvik centre in York – nothing says “I love you” like invading and pillaging!
True Lovers Knot, Dorset
As the name suggests, this friendly campsite is a lovely setting for a romantic getaway. Close to two National Trust parks, and with stunning views of the Tarrant Valley, cyclists and walkers will love spending time here. When you’ve worked up an appetite, their on-site pub specialises in recipes made with only locally sourced ingredients.
