Campsites we recommend for Summer 2021
So this year is officially the year of the staycation! With Pop Up RV its luxury glamping all the way.
We all need a break this year and a change of scenery.
We’ve taken the stress out of it with these campsite gems below, all in beautiful spots, giving you the escape you need. All within easy reach of London.
We can’t guarantee availability but we do know that many campsites are preferring to take self contained vehicles, with their own toilets and showers on board this summer.
Also, flexibility is key and a mid week break might offer more availability. It is always worth phoning the campsite to check even if its looking booked out!
Most of these campsites have electric hook ups and some have water and grey waste hook ups too. We will deliver the vehicle with fresh water, gas, and full battery charge to make your break start in the best way possible.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
