The Joy of Motorhoming Out of Season

Posted on: Thursday 22nd of September 2016



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 during the off-season? Stay with me and I’ll explain…

Really toasty warm

Warm & Cosy with a cup of tea in bedAll of our motorhomes come complete with central heating,  hot & cold running water, 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.

Off-peak rates

Our off-season goes from November through to March giving you the opportunity for some great winter bargains. 4 nights away in one of our smaller 2 berth motorhomes starts at just £280!
Not to mention the reduced rates of the campsite pitches!

Campsites open all year

Deers Glade Caravan & Camping ParkYou’ll find that many sites have extended their opening season, or even better, remain open all year round. (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

sitting by a lakeThere’s much to enjoy from a walking holiday in the UK, whatever the time of year, but the scenery in winter brings with it a certain magic and majesty unlike any other.

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.
