Fairybumpkin's Top tips for the perfect Camping or Caravan holiday








A good British camping or caravan holiday really can be the best kind of holiday, if you prepare for it properly. If you’re lucky enough you will get a lovely weekend with boiling sunshine, BBQs and Pimms, but who are we kidding? This is the UK after all. So here are my top tips on how to make the most of your UK holiday…

Wrap up
Ok, so it’s not good to be pessimistic, but if it does rain at least you had some waterproofs and appropriate clothing! Plus even when its warm a tent can get VERY cold at night, you may even need some bed socks!

Take disposable plates, cups etc
If you’re lazy like me, grab some paper plates, cups and cutlery. Bad for the environment I know, but washing up your soggy baked bean soaked plates at a campsite is NO fun!

BBQ
Disposable or portable, making a BBQ with a campfire going is the perfect way to end your day. Add a few beers and a woolly blanket and your evening is perfect.

Take games

If your camping, perhaps not so practical, but if you are in a caravan, why not play some card games or grab the monopoly board! Perhaps, if you really are Glamping, grab some DVDs and popcorn!

Alcohol
Rain or shine, a good tipple always makes things better. On a warm toasty evening, make some home made Pimms or fruit cider, for the colder nights, something stronger to take the edge off the chilly tent.

Bedtime
Screw air beds, get camping mats, a good one will roll out and blow up itself, its super comfy and you don't have to worry about it blowing down all night! 

Are you going camping this year!?
