Southern England

For those who don’t want to be too far off the beaten track, Brighton Beach could be the perfect spot! The pebbly beach might not be the best for long days lazing by the sea, but this seaside town, a favourite since the late 18th century boasts a huge variety of activities. Visit the famous Brighton Pier and Royal Pavilion, ride the world’s oldest electric railway, shop in the Laines or go for a night on the town! Even better – Brighton Caravan Site is just a stone’s throw away.


Whitesands Beach in Pembrokeshire is one of the most popular beaches in the UK for surfing, and is popular for holidaymakers looking for a break full of activities. It’s also a magnificent stretch of fine white sand lasting for three miles, providing ample room for visitors, as well as long beach walks. Nearby St David’s Lleithyr Meadow Club Site is the closest spot to pitch up.

South West England

Devon and Cornwall are well known hotspots for both caravanners and non-caravanners alike! Slapton Sands in Devon, however, is our pick for a great beach getaway. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this three mile beach lies upon a narrow strip of land, with the sea on one side and a large lake and nature reserve on the other. Also, if you wanted to bring the pooch, it’s also dog friendly all year round! For a nearby place to keep your ‘van, you might try Start Bay Club Site.


Yellowcraig is a natural cove beach, looks out to Fidra Island and its lighthouse, and was the inspiration for the novel Treasure Island! A popular beach for families, it offers a nature trail and barbecue site, as well as a great network of footpaths throughout woodlands and grassland. If you want to stay close by, Yellowcraig Caravan Site could be ideally located.

North East England

Whilst the seaside towns of northern England don’t perhaps attract the same crowds they once did, recent regenerations have seen them back on the rise! Whitley Bay, in Tyne & Wear, is just one such location. Aside from the golden sand Blue Flag award-winning beach, there’s plenty to do, including walks and a visit to Spanish City pleasure beach. You could choose to stay at Old Hartley Club Site, which offers wonderful views out to St Mary’s Lighthouse!
