Part of the fun of camping in a tent is its inherent inconvenience. Those less hardened to roughing it may find the cold, wind, and rain often associated with camping to be entirely unpalatable and seek a campsite with top facilities. The true adventurer, on the other hand, may look for a location that offers the wildest and most rugged experience. Campers can couple their time away with a great pop-up tent and other camping equipment to help turn their camping holiday into a memorable success.
Authentic tent camping is quite different from glamping (glamour camping), and lacks the hotel-like experience that one can find in camping pods. Campers looking for a simple no-fuss break in a pop-up tent can choose campsites along with the right camping accessories to facilitate the simplicity they crave in some of the most beautiful locations in Britain.
Set among breathtaking scenery in the Scottish Highlands, Glenmore offers an exhilarating stay for adventure lovers to pitch their pop-up tent. Basic, but quality, facilities accommodate a comfortable stay. Its location makes it the ideal base from where to see Britain's deepest water hole, Loch Ness and highest peak, Ben Nevis. The campsite especially suits walkers fit enough to revel in the rough trails of the near-by Caledonian pinewood forest. It also offers one of the finest opportunities for wildlife spotting in the UK. The 15-minute drive to Aviemore compensates the apparent remoteness of Glenmore with ample shopping and eateries.
The Little Wild Campsite
The Little Wild Campsite pops up for 28 days each year within a UNESCO world heritage site. Situated high on the slopes of Tregonning Hill, the electricity-free site offers superb views overlooking a picturesque countryside and the Cornish coastline of Mounts Bay. Campers can take advantage of pre-erected tents or bring their own. They can explore the surrounding scrubland on foot, or take a five minute journey by car to the nearby coves and beaches. A communal fire pit facilitates a social atmosphere, and the site offers a composting lavatory with a separately-housed shower. Regularly organised events and courses also characterise this camping ground, making it the ideal weekend escape in summer with plenty to do.
Seathwaite Farm Camping
Tucked away in one of England's most scenic landscapes and close to its highest peak, Scafell Pike, this camping ground offers a truly peaceful get-away. Hikers visiting the camp ground should bring along some good hiking boots to enjoy the many different trails. Some offer a serious challenge for experienced trekkers whilst others suit novice walkers looking for a recreational wander. The facilities provided here reflect the rustic charm of the environment, but offer visitors every essential comfort. Campers can turn a stay at this site into a quiet rest or a challenging workout.
