Motorhome Holiday Guide to the North of England
When we think of holidaying in the UK, our thoughts automatically turn to the south coast and the likes of Cornwall or Devon. Often described as the perfect UK destination for staycations, the south west of England in particular attracts countless visitors every summer. This popularity can sometimes mean that other parts of the UK are overlooked and forgotten about.
Here at Premier Motorhomes we don’t want to just make sure you have the perfect motorhome; we want to make sure your holidays in it are great too. With that in mind, we want to help you realise that the whole of the UK is ideal for a motorhome holiday, not just the south coastal areas! So, if you fancy choosing somewhere different for this year’s motorhome trip, let us give you a guide to the north of England.
One of the most beautiful spots in the whole country is the Lake District. Spanning over miles of stunning landscape, it’s an area that’s just as suitable for the whole family as it is for couple getaways. Perfect for the motorhome, there are plenty of pitches for you to take advantage of.
Relax in the heart of the Lake District and take in the scenery, complete with lakes and mountains. Whether you decide to visit for a retreat, or for some adventure, you’ll find it all right here. Take a boat out on one of the many lakes or throw on your walking boots and walk to the top of a fell. Offering spectacular views, it’s a breath-taking part of the country.
One of the top destinations in the UK, it is steeped in history. The Lake District was the home and inspiration for the likes of William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. With numerous castles and ruins to take in, there are also some Neolithic stone circles to visit too.
We may all have a preconception of Blackpool with its flashing lights and heaps of tourists, but it’s one of the most famous seaside resorts in the country. Particularly great if you’re taking the kids or grandkids away for the summer, Blackpool is home to the Pleasure Beach and Sandcastle Waterpark. There are also multiple shows on in the evenings to keep everyone entertained.
However, if you’re looking for a getaway in the north of England, Blackpool is also home to stunning venues and landmarks. Blackpool Tower has been open since 1894 and holds the famous ballroom. Immerse yourself in Lancashire’s history in a truly authentic setting.
On the opposite side of the UK, you have a similar seaside destination. Scarborough is home to two sandy beaches and castle ruins; much more than your average Brit holiday! The Rotunda Museum helps you learn more about the coast; this part of the UK has actually yielded a lot of the country’s important dinosaur fossils.
Peasholm Park is a great way to spend a sunny afternoon, with a lake, traditional bandstand and events throughout the year. Voted one of the top 10 parks in the UK, the design of Peasholm Island was actually inspired by the scene you can see on willow pattern plates.
The Yorkshire Dales are full of character, with stone-built villages amongst the stunning landscape. Spend your getaway in the great outdoors and uncover some of the hidden gems this area has to offer.
Fountains Abbey is a National Trust site with a Georgian water garden in its grounds. The Abbey has been around since 1132, and have since become the largest monastic ruins in the country.
