Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
After being cooped-up indoors for months, what could be better than treating your Zoom-tired eyes to a wild, off-the-grid stay in the great outdoors? Luckily, for those itching to swap the city for more rugged surroundings, holidays in the UK are back on the agenda for summer.
Under the latest plans for England’s lockdown exit strategy, it’s been announced that self-catered accommodation, including Airbnbs and campsites, will be open for holidaymakers from April 12, for a single household. Overnight stays at places with shared facilities, like hotels, will only be allowed from May 17. (Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are yet to announce when domestic holidays will be allowed.)
With lots of people swapping holidays abroad for ‘staycations’ this year, many camping, glamping and campervanning sites all over the UK are already booking up fast. So, where does that leave you if you’re desperate to kip under canvas? Wild camping – aka camping in a rural spot without the trappings of a standard campsite – could be the way to go.
