The Joy of Motorhoming Out of Season

Posted on: Friday 25th of October 2019

As you may expect, most people choose to escape in a motorhome during the summer months when the sun is shining and the weather is warm. Whilst the upside of this is obvious there are some down sides; premium prices, overcrowding, campsites being fully booked.

Have you considered going away and motorhoming out of season? Stay with me and I’ll explain…

Really toasty warm

Warm & Cosy with a cup of tea in bed. motorhoming out of seasonAll of our motorhomes come complete with central heating,  hot & cold running water (no hot water in our VW campervans), and are very well insulated. So even after a long and tiring day you can arrive back at your warm and snug motorhome, have a lovely hot shower, dry off, make a brew (or a glass of wine!) and unwind.

No matter what the conditions you find yourself in, you’ll be able to keep dry and toasty warm throughout the day and night.

Campsites open all year

(Here are just a few that our customers have recommended.) Some, but not all, even offer guest’s heated toilet and shower blocks, laundry rooms, mains electric hook ups and often have hard standing pitches, so you don’t have to worry about getting stuck in the mud!

Visiting family and friends

So why not do the festive rounds in a motorhome? Hook up to their mains, and you can stop over the night without having to impose. It also negates the need to designate one unfortunate soul to go without their festive tipple in order to taxi everyone back!

Walking holidays

Bright and crisp mornings are perfect for walking, and there’s not a lot better after a long walk than to relax with a drink and some warm food in a nearby cosy pub.

We’re fortunate in this country to have such an abundance of varying and dramatic landscapes, from Norfolk to the New Forest, and the South Downs to Snowdonia.

As well as being in such beautiful surroundings, many of the campsites in these locations are ideal bases from which to start your treks.

Chasing the sun into Europe

Holidaying in the cold not your thing? Then chase the sun down to southern Europe. Two of the most popular destinations for full time motorhomers are Spain and Portugal where winter temperatures average 19 degrees.
