It can make for a rowdy and raucous time when children at play are doing what only comes naturally. They’re typically buzzing with energy and full of exuberance while running around, chasing, and making lots of noise. It’s all a wonderful part of a healthy approach to growing up.

But there’s also a time and place for such exuberance though and times when you crave a little peace and quiet.

Thankfully, that yearning for the quieter and more peaceful things in life is recognised by many campsite owners who offer adult-only camping and caravan sites.

These can be found in various parts of the United Kingdom and some of them are located in some particularly beautiful surroundings. Here are some options:

Berwick Upon Tweed – The Chainbridge Touring Caravan Site

  • as the name suggests, this is located right on the border between England and Scotland – and in some beautiful countryside;
  • you have all the attractions of the River Tweed and its surrounding country pursuits;
  • there are also several historical sites well within reach – such as Bamburgh Castle, Berwick Upon Tweed itself, Lindisfarne and the Scottish border towns including places such as Jedburgh, Roxburgh, Hawick, and Peebles;

Somerset – Wells Touring Park

  • set in the rolling hills of the West Country, Wells is a beautiful city – the smallest in England – with an amazing cathedral;
  • it’s also close to a host of other attractions such as Glastonbury and its Tor, Avebury, Stonehenge and some of the great Devon and Dorset beaches;

Conwy (Conway), Wales – Tyddyn Du Touring Park

  • this is a beautiful campsite with some stunning views over the rugged North Wales countryside and the sea heading out towards the Isle of Anglesey;
  • if you looking to enjoy nature at its best, this is the place to come for a full range of rugged activities such as cycling, canoeing, hiking, etc;
  • there are many towns nearby that are all worth exploring including Conwy itself with its magnificent castle;

Oakham, Rutland – Greendale Farm Caravan & Camping Park

  • located in the heart of England’s smallest county, Oakham is an extremely attractive town and is surrounded by many others like it such as Melton Mowbray and Stamford;
  • the countryside and towns around here are very pretty and they’re often missed by tourists heading for the better-known attractions of Yorkshire in the other direction;
  • there are some nice facilities on this site, recently voted the best campsite for couples (without their children!) and great rural pursuits for those that love exercise;

Pickering, North Yorkshire – Overbrook Caravan Park

  • North Yorkshire is justifiably world-famous for its scenery and historic attractions;
  • the North York Moors are a must for a visit, as are some of the great ruined Abbeys – there are numerous castles and charming smaller towns, while the coastline should be considered a “must-see” in terms of its rugged beauty;
  • pitch up at Overbrook, a member of the coveted Tranquil Touring Parks group;

St Ives, Cambridgeshire – Stroud Hill Caravan Park

  • it is a complete myth that Cambridgeshire is entirely flat – there are some lovely parts in this county that are pleasantly rolling and that is partly why it was a much-visited and well-loved area for the artist John Constable;
  • Stroud Hill is another attractive campsite and while you are in the area, if you haven’t done so before, you must make the effort to visit Cambridge itself.

These are just a few general ideas and suggestions for adult-only campsites you might want to visit. Although the idea was probably overlooked for many years, the concept of quieter, more peaceful adults-only campsites has recently gained a lot of ground and with a little research, you should find that you have plenty to choose from.
