The rising cost of holidays abroad during the summer months means that many of us are opting to stay at home and take holidays later in the year. We all love a good summer holiday to Spain or Greece but with an array of options right on our doorstep; it’s worth considering a local holiday this September. Maybe you’ve been working too hard and need a little get-a-way break or you saved the day trips for July and August ready to take a short weekend break now summer is drawing to an end.
A short break in late summer is the perfect opportunity for you to rejuvenate and relax in the South West sun before fall begins, the temperature drops and the nights get longer.

Everyone is a bit more cautious about spending at the moment and when it comes to saving money, a camping trip is one of the most economical choices for a family getaway. Once you’ve invested in a tent and the essentials, you can use them as often as you like without spending any more money. That means years of holidays on a minimal outlay.

On the other hand, a camping trip allows you to sit back, relax and do nothing at all! Once your tent is set-up, you don’t have to rush to be somewhere or do something. Just sit back, chill and watch the world go by. For a few days at least, you don’t need to worry about cleaning, laundry, shopping or any of the other tiresome tasks that consume our everyday lives.
Family time is at a premium these days, with long working hours, technology and the demands of everyday life. How often do you actually get the chance to sit with family and/or friends without everyone having their eyes fixed on phones or glued to a flickering box in the corner of the room? Camping brings people together without the distractions of the modern world, meaning you can actually chat and laugh and interact like a proper, family.
