*Staycation Ideas: Five Berth Caravan

If you've been following me on Instagram (@ofbeautyand) then you'll know that I went to Glasgow for the first time last week as part of a hotel stay review (my review will be live very soon) and it has made me remember how much I love travelling and exploring new places. We had an amazing but very brief time in Scotland; however we were able to visit quite a few incredible locations such as Stirling Castle, Loch Lomond and more.

We both agreed that we'd love to go back to Scotland in the future and I would specifically love to go back to the Trossachs National Park again as the scenery was utterly beautiful, especially at this time of the year. While I adored the hotel, I think I would like my own little space while exploring and I think camping and caravanning are great staycation options.

Location 
The first thing you need to think about when it comes to a holiday or staycation is the location and Scotland is just perfect, especially at this time of the year when the leaves are turning and the landscape is even more breathtaking than usual. Caravanning would be ideal for that landscape as hotels in more remote areas might not be the cheapest option and with a caravan you would be able to visit various caravan sites and explore the surrounding area much more than if you stayed within a hotel.

Activities 
There are so many wonderful sites to visit across the UK and some of my favourites have to include: Tatton Park and Dunham Massey in Cheshire, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Edinburgh Castle and Holyrood Palace in Edinburgh, The Tower of London and Buckingham Palace in London and many more such as the incredible national parks in the Yorkshire Dales and the Trossachs National Park near Glasgow.

Five Berth Caravans
Staycations, in my opinion, are so much easier, more convenient and often cheaper alternatives for a weekend break or a few days away with friends. They also offer the opportunity to visit more sites compared to travelling abroad (unless you're planning on a cruise) and staycations are more flexible in terms of the locations you can visit and the activities you can plan, especially if you have your own transport such as a car and caravan.

A five berth caravan would be the perfect weekend staycation for family or friends as not only would you have everything you need in one place but it combines your transport, kitchen, living space, facilities and bedrooms all in one which should cut the costs down when compared to a hotel stay, restaurant costs and transport.

I have been on camping holidays for most of my life and while I loved camping as a child including visiting some of the most beautiful places in the UK (including Fort William, Oban, Devon and Cornwall), it isn't something I'd want to do as an adult. I think a caravan, particularly a large option such as a five berth caravan, would be ideal.

If caravanning also sounds great to you and you would like more information, check out Bailey of Bristol which is one of the UK's leading caravan manufacturers. They have a fantastic range to choose from of various sizes and brands with a variety of specifications. Visit their website for images, prices or to download their brochure.

Have you been on a staycation or caravan holiday?
