The UK’s 10 Most Stunning Motorhoming Spots

July 3, 2014

Devoted motorhomers are more than used to the feeling of wanderlust, always looking for unique new corners of the Earth to explore in pursuit of pure adventure on the road. There’s no doubt the globe has a vibrant tapestry of colour palettes and cultures to discover, but for those as yet unacquainted with the UK’s many aesthetic offerings, you might be surprised to hear that some of the world’s best travel destinations are right on our doorstep.

Looking for road trip ideas? Let’s take a look at just some of the natural marvels any motorhoming fanatic can feast their eyes on without breaking the border (in no particular order):

Ben Nevis, Scottish Highlands

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Ben Nevis

Ben Nevis stands at 4409ft (1344m) above sea level – making it the UK’s highest mountain – and offers motorhoming fans a glorious stonescape tucked away in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. This is an ideal destination for motorhome lovers and a non-negotiable for committed climbers.

St. Michael’s Mount, Cornwall

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: St Michael's Mount

St. Michael’s Mount’s Cornish name translates as “grey rock in the woods”, and is just one of the gorgeous landmarks that make Cornwall one of the UK’s most underrated beauties. The Cornish legend of Lyonesse describes an ancient kingdom extending from Penwith to the Isles of Scilly, and this landmark certainly delivers on the elusive beauty factor.

Cheddar Gorge, Somerset

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Cheddar Gorge

Somerset’s Mendip Hills are home to a gorge with a particularly delicious name – and the green palette blanket covering this exceptional corner of the world offers aesthetics more than capable of competing with its tasty title.

Hope Valley, the Peak District

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Hope Valley

The psychedelic spectrum found in Hope Valley runs from the Dark Peak to the White Peak, colouring this patch of Derbyshire with a gorgeous and aptly-named pigment. Hope Valley redefines the term ‘picturesque’ and is a must-see for any passionate motorhomers.

Giant’s Causeway, Antrim

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Giant's Causeway

Surrounded by the wild North Atlantic Ocean and boasting extraordinary if not unsettling rock formations, the Giant’s Causeway is a subject of ongoing scientific debate and as close as we’re likely to get to walking in footsteps of giants. This natural marvel is an unmissable destination for any UK traveller.

Stonehenge, Wiltshire

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Stonehenge

This prehistoric monument is one of the wonders of the world, and is the remains of a ring of standing stones set within earthworks. Stonehenge is about 2 miles west of Amesbury and a stunning and enigmatic ancient site with origins still very much shrouded in mystery.

Llanberis Pass, Snowdonia

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Llanberis Pass

Found in Gwynedd, North Wales, Llanberis sits at the foot of Snowdon, Wales’ highest mountain. The arresting mountain scenery combined with proximity to the local coastline makes this an ideal sanctuary for the transient traveller.

Eigg, the Inner Hebrides

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Eigg, Inner Hebrides

 Ten miles of the Scottish west coast is Eigg, an island in the Inner Hebrides with looks to die for. The spectacular white beaches, rolling grasslands and sense of utter escapism are just some of the reasons the Isle of Eigg is worth a lasting look.

The Isle of Skye

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Isle of Skye

Also inside the natural pocket that is the Inner Hebrides, you’ll find the Isle of Skye, a breathtaking island littered with colourful wildlife, including but not limited to otters, dolphins and red deer. The Isle of Skye is also an essential destination for walkers and climbers, with exquisite scrambles and climbs across the island.

Achmelvich Beach, Scottish Highlands

The UK's Best Motorhoming Spots: Achmelvich Beach

Misleadingly Mediterranean-looking, Achmelvich Beach is yet another of the Scottish Highlands’ aesthetic beauties, an isolated paradise with some insane coastal views. The Achmelvich settlement is also home to ‘Hermit’s Castle’, Europe’s smallest castle – yet another lovely little oddity hidden in Scotland’s wonderful corners.
