As the winter months come rolling in, the idea of going campervanning might seem ludicrous. When you can fly away to a warmer country, why would you want to travel around the UK in a campervan during the coldest months of the year? Because we would argue that it’s one of the best holidays you will ever have.
Here at 365 Campers, we know just how much fun there is to be had on the chilly winter days and our quality campervans are the perfect vehicle to go on an adventure in. Not convinced yet? That’s okay, here are three reasons why winter is the perfect time for you to go campervanning.
Enjoy the peace and quiet
It’s safe to say that if you’re looking for a holiday without lots of other people, winter is the best time to go. If you want to avoid queues, traffic and overcrowded spaces, then you should go on holiday when everyone else is curled up at home. Road trips are really popular in the summer, so the winter will allow you to enjoy your trip in the peace of relatively empty campsites and attractions. Trust us, it’s an almost unique experience.
Don’t worry about being cold on these trips either. All modern campers are well kitted out with electric heaters, so you’ll be able to enjoy your evenings in a warm campervan. There’s nothing else quite like watching the early sunset through your window from the best spot on the campsite. Or, you can take blankets with you and watch the sunset from the top of a hill before going to warm up with a traditional pub dinner. With no crowds to drive you crazy, you’ll be able to enjoy all of these things at your pace and on your terms.
Beat the winter blues
The descent into winter is always an exciting experience. With the beauty of autumn leading straight into the festive season, it’s easy to get swept away with the sheer joy of it all. Then, January rolls around and there’s still months of cold, wet and miserable weather ahead of you, along with dark mornings and short days, which aren’t so enjoyable. Seasonal Affective Disorder can really take hold at this point in the year and you will feel yourself needing a holiday.
You can easily beat these winter blues by planning the best winter campervan trip possible. A total change of scenery can help to reinvigorate you and the winter blues will be a thing of the past. You can take long brisk walks through the countryside, visit homely independent coffee shops in postcard villages and roast marshmallows over roaring fires to make the winter months much more fun. A winter holiday is a great way to give yourself something to look forward to as well and something that is a little closer than those elusive summer days.
Winter comes with its perks
You might not expect it, but going on holiday in the winter does come with some perks that the summer months just can’t compete with. The first and foremost being that you don’t have to worry about annoying insects encroaching on your space. Think about it, you can spend time in the countryside without worrying about wasps and mosquitoes. Spending quiet winter evenings playing board games and reading books in the back of your campervan really is idyllic too, and it’s the perfect way for you to end a brilliant day of travelling and exploring.
You can also incorporate so many different daytime activities into your trip, so you won’t be missing out on excitement and adventure. You will finally be able to do the things you’ve always wanted to do and visit the places you’ve always wanted to go but never had the time or the patience for crowds of tourists. The world really is your oyster when you choose to make the most of the winter season.
