Lancashire Campervan Trail
Now that you have your LeisureDrive Campervan, why not go on a road trip? LeisureDrive have laid out an enticing Lancashire Campervan Trail so you can get out there in your new campervan. A few days travel will make for a lovely getaway, no matter if it’s a long weekend or an extended stay.
Ultimately, the choice is yours; however, every route is a scenic route!
Our recommendation is starting in Wrexham, Wales a beautiful market town that is located between the Welsh mountains and the lower Dee Valley, where it borders with the county of Cheshire in England.
A night in Wrexham in your new Campervan
Start your break off in style at Plassey – Holiday Park, Retail Village & Golf Course, in Wrexham. As you ease your way into your campvan holiday with a stay at Plassey, having everything you could ever need on-site.
Pitches come in different styles and prices, everything from a quick stay to luxurious retreat. North Wales is a beautiful place to explore, and Wrexham is a place surrounded by gorgeous countryside.
If you want beaches, we recommend checking out either the North Wales coastline. Or for countryside, visit several nearby nature trails surrounding Wrexham, like Marford Quarry or Alyn Waters. There are loads of campervan pitches throughout the Wrexham area
Campervan touring in Lancashire
After that you will be making your way through Merseyside and Lancashire towards Lancaster, from Wrexham. Here you will find Glen Tarn Caravan Park, just a short drive from Lancaster city centre.
You can expect the drive to be just over an hour long, however you can see many different locations on the way up or when you’ve set up camp. The reason this is an amazing place to stay is due to there being a bit of everything. Basically, in immediate vicinity you can explore woodlands, fish, coastal areas, city centre and even the mountainous landscape.
Obviously, you can take your campervan tour at your own pace. Perhaps you want to have a quick look round. Or perhaps you want to take on Hawthornwaite Fell.
Touring the Lake District in a campervan
Heading up into The Lake District, you will need to find a place amid the region. Therefore, our suggestion is Little Acre Holiday Park, surrounded by the Lakes and hilly regions. Here, you can surround yourself with nature, get the wellies out and explore the beautiful Northern landscape.
It’s good to choose a campervan touring park that is on the foot of the Lake District, with the closest lake being Windermere and the bustling Town of Bowness-on-Windermere. Which is now the Lake District’s most popular visitor destination being busy for much of the year.
Towns & villages of the Lake District & Cumbria
Thus, from this central position in The Lakes you can formulate a plant to cover the Towns & Villages of the Lake District and Cumbria that you would like to see. Additionally, there are loads planned events and festivals taking place in 2022 and you can find what’s on in the Lake District in 2022 and more about its Towns and villages here.
Let’s take our campervan tour towards Yorkshire and journey to the Yorkshire Dales,
The final step of the journey is a drive down to Skipton, specifically to Niffany Farm Caravan and Camping. Which is a small family run caravan and camping site only moments from the market town of Skipton and offers accommodation for tents, caravans, and motorhomes.
Skipton is a quaint market town to enjoy the last day of your camping trip. Spend your last day admiring the views of Aire Valley. Here you can do everything from a peaceful afternoon of golf to trekking up to Rylstone Cross.
Most importantly, you’re in charge of this campervan tour and there’s plenty to see in the Yorkshire Dales. So, why not extend the stay and take in some popular places like Ingleton Waterfalls, Malham Cover and White Scar Caves.
