After a long, dreary winter banished indoors, the arrival of March heralds the hopes for a bit of sunshine and warmth. What better way to get reacquainted with nature and its new lease of life than a Spring camping trip? From good old traditional tents to 'yurts' and pods, there's never been more choice for your accommodation preferences. Whether you're a camping enthusiast or a newbie looking to try something new, we've got a bit of Spring camping inspiration that will fit both bills!
Tucked away just outside the market town of Wimbourne, Farrs Meadow is a delightfully rural spot despite being just a convenient 15 min walk from Wimbourne. You'll have the choice of pitching your own tent, staying in a gypsy caravan, a unique stable/shack or a yurt. Farrs Meadow is a brilliant location if you want a relaxing trip away filled with lazy days lounging by the scenic pond, strolling through the woods or exploring the secret garden. And if you fancy venturing beyond the campsite parameters there’s the beautiful church Minister of St Cuthburga and the River Stour to pay a visit to.
With relaxed, bohemian festival vibes Faerie-Thyme, situated in Crwbin Wales is a wonderful choice to escape the humdrum of everyday life and access rejuvenation from the surrounding woodland. This is a choice suitable for a couples retreat as children and pets aren't allowed. So if your designated baby-sitter is free for the weekend then why not get away for a couple of days? With two vintage caravans available for hire and plenty of space for tents, campervans and caravans, there’s plenty of accommodation choices to suit your preferences at Faerie-Thyme.
Situated in Cumbria, The Quiet Side campsite looks down upon scenic Ullswater. With lots of varied walking routes and a hand-crafted walking guide upon arrival, The Quiet Side is a great choice if you plan on doing some exploring of the surrounding picturesque landscape whilst away. There’s also the option of hiring a rowing or motor boat and taking to the water for a more chilled out day of sailing. Family friendly, you’ll have the choice of a tent, a pod, or, intriguingly, 'a hobbit hole' to return to after a day's exploring.
Although we were intrigued by simply its name, Tea Pot Lane was recommended by The Observer in 'Glamping in Europe's Top 10 Luxury Campsites.' With lots of accommodation choices to boast of including cute country cottages and adorable tree houses you’ll have a hard time choosing what to sleep in during your stay at Tea Pot Lane. With cutesy vintage and festival vibes combined, Tea Pot Lane has a storybook feel to it (if its name didn't already give that away!) There's plenty to get up to from relaxing in the spa to trying something new such as surfing. There's also a hen house and a cute fairie garden to explore, perfect for kids. It's also pet friendly meaning no one needs to get left behind on your trip away.
