WINNER – TRAVEL GUIDE BOOK OF THE YEAR 2023 (British Guild of Travel Writers)Camping Road Trips: UK showcases a personal selection of 30 road trips throughout the UK and Jersey (Channel Islands), all suitable for campervans, motorhomes, long-distance cyclists and any other road user who likes camping. All have been handpicked by experienced travel writer Caroline Mills, who has over 20 years’ experience of camping, caravanning and motorcaravanning.Whether a novice camper or experienced road-tripper, a solo adventurer or family group, these self-guided tours provide inspiration to explore a region of the UK slowly and intensively. There are routes of all distances, from weekends covering no more than 20 miles to routes of 500 miles and more for those enjoying a longer holiday – all while overnighting in some of Britain’s most beautiful locations.Collectively the routes explore some of the UK’s very best scenery – from coastal views and mountains, forests and national parks, vineyards, lakesides and riverbanks, to pastoral idylls, wilderness and vibrant cities brimming with architectural heritage. They follow rural lanes, mountain roads with cautiously exciting hairpin bends, national A-roads of historic note and the odd official touring route such as Scotland’s famous North Coast 500. Routes allow time to explore unexpected destinations, while well-known places are here visited out-of-season to avoid congestion and encourage year-round camping.Many routes are themed, helping readers enjoy a region’s food and drink, discover its gardens, or visit historic and cultural sites such as Lincolnshire’s aviation history. Many encourage ‘slow travel’ activities like walking or cycling. You can explore Teesdale’s traditional hay meadows and wildflowers on foot, let your tastebuds roam around England’s increasingly influential sparkling-wine industry, discover the beauty of Northern Ireland’s ancient Kingdom of Mourne, stay at a tea plantation on Dartmoor, or view Dover’s famous White Cliffs from a rib.Camping Road Trips: Britain is written in a highly personal style, based upon the author’s own travels – typically as a solo female or with her three children – and is designed to entice readers to explore a region further at their own pace, taking in their own interests to produce a relaxing and rewarding holiday.
