One of the many great benefits of caravan holidays in the UK is the gorgeous scenery just outside your window. Bryony Symes picks 10 scenic sites.

1. Welsh luxury

In the rolling countryside of west Wales, with the beautiful landscapes of Cardigan Bay on its doorstep, Bargoed Farm Caravan, Camping and Glamping Park has more than a touch of luxury - it even has pitches with private hot tubs, where you can relax and take in the rural landscape.

2. Pristine sands on Isle of Mull

The landscapes on the Isle of Mull are stunning incdeed, from the rugged slopes of Ben More to the beautiful sands of Calgary Bay and Langamull Beach. You can pitch up at Tobermory Caravan Site, a short walk from the pretty port with its painted houses; but really, wherever you choose to stay on this fabulous island, you're sure to be surrounded by spectacular scenery.

3. Sea gazing

Sea Barn Farm Camping Park's stunning location on Dorset's Jurassic coast overlooks the Fleet Lagoon and Lyme Bay - which is quite a view to have out of your caravan window. Plus, it's just 500m from the South West Coast Path which meanders through miles of great scenery.

4. Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula

To explore the Lizard, one of the most picturesque areas of the UK, try Little Trethwas Camping and Touring Site, from where you can walk to Kynance Cove, Mullion and Cadgwith.

5. Delightful Dovedale Valley

Nestled at the foot of Dovedale Valley, ringed by the Lake District's distinctive hillsides, Sykeside Camping Park is simply surrounded by fantastic views. This really is a great spot to get away from it all and just enjoy the great outdoors.

6. Perks of a Peak District farm

The charming Dale Farm campsite sits in the heart of the Peak District, with great views. They only accept caravans by prior agreement, but if you get a pitch, you won't want to leave. There's also a farm shop, where you can buy their own meats, jams, chutneys and cakes, and other local produce.

7. Deep in the mountains

It's quite difficult to find more spectacular views than those in the Alps, and Huttopia Bourg-St-Maurice benefits from these timeless surroundings. It's not open in the winter, but book ahead for the summer and start dreaming of the mountain air.

8. Coastal haven in Ireland

Make the most of Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way by pitching up at Clifden Eco Beach Camping and Caravanning Park. It's nestled among the dunes, with access to a private sandy beach, and is perfect for a really idyllic break.

9. Snowdonia's mountain scenes

Experience the wonder that is Snowdonia National Park from your pitch at Gwern Gof Isaf campsite. It is a low-key campsite, so don't expect too may of the bells and whistles, but this fabulous location is, quite simply, exceptional.

10. Scottish splendour

Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Cairngorms National Park from Oakwood Caravan & Camping Park, which is bordered by lush oak woods and has excellent facilities - it only opened in August 2018, so everything is new.
