de4358a4-cb7f-4168-ad7d-8dd22d512c10

For the perfect coastal escape we've selected our essential seaside sites below. Combining a close-to-the-beach location with top-class facilities means we can guarantee the sand and the sea, just not necessarily the sunshine!

Sands Caravan & Camping, Highland
01445 712152
sandscaravanandcamping.co.uk
Open 31 March - 30 October

Sands is an informal affair, giving you the freedom to choose your own spot - a sheltered space among the sand dunes or a pitch with a view across the Minch. Wherever you set up, the award-winning beach is a stone’s throw away. The site is sheltered by sand dunes and you can watch some unforgettable sunsets over the Hebrides. Facilities on site include three heated toilet/shower blocks, a motorhome service point, a licensed shop serving freshly baked bread, a laundry and cafe. For recreation the site has a games room, play area, slipway, fishing, bikes and kayaks for hire, and a dog walking area.

Bagwell Farm Touring Park, Dorset
01305 782575
bagwellfarm.co.uk
Open all year

This family-run park is set in a quiet valley yet within five miles of Weymouth's sandy beach and bustling harbour. A short walk to the South West Coast Path and the Fleet Lagoon on Dorset’s Jurassic Coastline. Super pitches have a double-width hardstanding and are fully serviced. The modern, heated facilities include bathrooms and a wet room. The Red Barn bar and takeaway is open at weekends during mid-season and nightly in high season. There is also a pub within half a mile of the site. The X53 bus stops at the pub and is a perfect way of exploring the many attractions along the coastline.

Waren Caravan & Camping Park, Northumberland
01668 214366
meadowhead.co.uk
Open 8 March - 2 November

Set within acres of woodland on the headland above Budle Bay Nature Reserve. With stunning coastal views of Holy Island and Bamburgh Castle, the site offers four pitch types – grass, standard, premium and fully serviced, with or without electric. There’s also a dedicated adults only section, a nature trail and
a barbecue hut that can be hired. St Oswald’s Way walking route passes through the site and one of the must-do things of the region is to drive across the tidal causeway to the special and quite unique Holy Island of Lindisfarne.
