It’s great fun to tour with family. But sometimes, the grown-ups need to get away from it all. Here we showcase 10 brilliant adults-only touring sites that provide perfect peace in stunning surroundings.
Voted for by you
If you’re looking for a peaceful break in stunning surroundings, Dorset’s Back of Beyond Touring Park is a great option. There are 18 acres of woodland and two fishing lakes, as well as top-notch facilities. It won our Best Adults Only Site award in the most recent Top 100 Sites Guide, where we round up the best caravan sites in the UK, so you can be sure of a really pleasant stay.
Calm in the West Country
Set in a wooded valley and surrounded by peaceful riverside walks, Waterrow Touring Park is a great place to get away from it all. There’s also fantastic walking almost on your doorstep, in the nearby Quantock Hills and Exmoor National Park, making this award-winning holiday destination, formerly a dairy farm, a brilliant touring base.
Charoland Farm is a cosy, peaceful, well-kept site on a working farm in the Lancashire countryside, close to thriving market towns and just nine miles from the attractions of Blackpool. It is a member of the Tranquil Parks group, and won Small Campsite of the Year in the AA Caravan & Camping Awards 2019/2020.
Faichemard Farm Campsite sits in the Great Glen and is surrounded by the stunning landscapes of the Glengarry mountains in Inverness-shire. This 10-acre site has plenty of space between pitches, so you won’t feel crowded, and provides a scenic haven for the abundant wildlife.
Those who enjoy a spot of fishing while on tour will love Grooby’s Pit Caravan Park, where the touring pitches are neatly set around two fabulous fishing lakes, in a beautifully landscaped park. When you start to explore further afield, you’ll find it’s just 15 minutes away from Skegness and the lovely Lincolnshire coast, so there’s plenty to do nearby.
Better than ever
South Wales Touring Park, also known as Llwynifan Farm, has stunning views of the South Wales countryside and is just a mile from the M4. The site is perfect for exploring South and West Wales, and they’ve not rested on their laurels during the recent lockdowns: there have been plenty of excellent improvements.
Pretty as a picture
The attractive landscaping and floral displays of Overbrook Caravan Park will help you start to relax as soon as you get on site, and its location in the gorgeous North Yorkshire Moors is perfect for those wanting to stretch their legs in beautiful scenery. You’re also just half an hour from the resorts of Whitby, Filey and Scarborough.
Peace in Mid-Wales
The 20 acres of Red Kite Touring Park are beautifully laid out, with a coarse-fishing pool, nature ponds, plenty of dog walks and nearby walking along the Severn Way and the River Clywedog. This gently sloping hillside park offers great views of the valley below, too. Perfect sights to drink in over your morning cuppa!
A taste of farm life
Looking for a slightly more rustic style of touring? The Pig Place Campsite, on the banks of the Oxford Canal just a few miles from Banbury, has a large grassy field for tourers, as well as a very popular licensed farm shop. While you’re there, don’t miss the pigs’ feeding time, or the unrivalled cooked breakfasts!
In the heart of Cornwall
Explore the North Cornwall Coast from picturesque Rosebud Farm Touring Park, an adults-only site with panoramic views looking across the Allen Valley to Bodmin Moor. It’s also just a 15-minute walk from the village of St Teath, and there are plenty of opportunities for hiking on the nearby South West Coast Path.
