Top 5 Christmas Breaks in Your Motorhome
Going away at Christmas is a popular idea, mostly because it can take a lot of the stress out of the big day! Escaping to a new destination with your nearest and dearest can add a new level of excitement to Christmas, as you spend a few days exploring somewhere new and making different memories. You might want to go away for Christmas Day itself, or you want to wait until Boxing Day; you could even go away for New Year’s Eve. Whenever you decide to go away in your motorhome over Christmas, you may find it difficult to find the perfect destination. So, let Premier Motorhomes give you some inspiration for Christmas breaks this year.
Where better to escape to at Christmas than Snowdonia? A rural retreat that offers rest and relaxation for the whole family, it’s the perfect destination to get cosy and enjoy the magical landscape.
Snowdonia is a mountainous region and a national park, perfect for those who love the outdoors. Wrap up warm and take a walk, go for a family bike ride or visit heritage sites and learn about the area’s history.
Whether you’re taking the kids or you fancy a quiet Christmas break to yourself, heading to Snowdonia in your motorhome will guarantee a festive feeling that’s hard to beat!
A medieval city, York is charming and really comes alive at Christmas. Lose yourself down its cobbled streets and have a nosey at the St Nicholas Fair. Bustling with activity and people going about their daily business, a weekend in York is a weekend well spent!
Home to castles, historic houses and the city’s gothic York Minster, coming here at Christmas will be incredibly memorable.
Isle of Wight
To feel like you’ve really gone away this Christmas, without having to leave the country, why not visit the Isle of Wight? Traditional Christmas fairs and crisp, wintery days, the Isle of Wight is home to both cosy pubs and beaches.
With quaint towns and villages, visit boutique shops for last minute Christmas shopping, or tie in your trip with the Brighstone Christmas Tree Festival, which is in its 21st year. The festival brings over 200 decorated Christmas trees to venues around the West Wight and kicks off the festive season perfectly.
Similar to Snowdonia, the Scottish Highlands is a winter wonderland at Christmas. With a beautiful landscape stretching for miles, the Highlands are home to the likes of Loch Ness, Ben Nevis and Cairngorms National Park.
Holidaying the Highlands gives you a wealth of things to do, from watching dolphins and waking along the coast to snow sports including skiing. There are even several castles to duck into to avoid the cold, giving you an insight into the history of the area.
This area of the UK is home to multiple different attractions. From picturesque villages and towns like Matlock and Ashbourne, to places like Chatsworth House and Buxton. With the Peak District on your doorstep, you can enjoy a relaxing few days in the serene countryside.
Explore heritage sites like Hardwick Hall and Bolsover Castle, or grab a hot chocolate in one of the many village cafes.
