    Hello,
    We are planning a month-long camping trip through England, Wales, and Scotland this summer, and were wondering how necessary it is to reserve camping sites in advance.
    We’ll be in the UK from June 20th – July 15th, travelling in our VW camper bus, with a dog. Ideally, I’d like to make no reservations so that we can dawdle in a location of it suits us, or move on to the next location as we wish.
    Any advice regarding the necessity to book campsites during this time of year? Are we likely to have luck just pulling into a campground and finding available sites?
    Thanks so much!

    Hi Kris

    As you are outside of the school holidays, you should not have any problem finding campsites with space.
    Some of the most popular campsites may be fully booked, but almost all will have space.
    That’s how I tend to travel.

    Hi
    Do you know about ‘Britstops’ for one night stop-overs? There’s a book you can buy online, it’ll give you an ‘authentic taste of Britain’. You don’t get facilities such as showers but you can use the pub/farm shop facilities whilst open as long as you’ve introduced yourselves and bought a beer or a meal. There are some really lovely stop-overs next to canals, rivers, in villages, on farms, vineyards! It includes Ireland too : )

    Kris,
    PS. As well as ‘Britstops’
    Have you thought about joining The Camping and Caravan Club? It’s not expensive and you have a list of all the sites, big, small, hideaways, sites for just 5 vans all over the UK and reduced camping fees for members.
    Have fun.
