2 Llwynifan Farm South Wales Touring Park - Carmarthenshire
Wales is perhaps one of the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom and there are plenty of camping and caravan sites. But if you’re truly looking to get away from it all and have an adult only weekend then we would highly recommend Llwynifan Farm South Wales Touring Park. This site is perfectly located if you’re looking to explore the Brecon Beacons. It’s also right there on the edge of the Gower Peninsula and there’s plenty of other local attractions to keep you busy.
One of the main attractions of the Llwynifan Farm South Wales Touring Park are the incredible views you’ll get from your pitch. It’s no wonder that this site has won awards over the years but what’s even better is that you don’t have to go into the back of beyond to get here; it’s just a short, one mile drive from the motorway!
There are some fully serviced pitches but all have electric hook ups and there are other facilities like individual showers, laundry and even vanity units.
3 Wayfarers Park - Cornwall
If you don’t need a dog friendly camping and caravan park then Wayfarers Park will suit you. It’s adult only and pet free so you’ll really get the peace and tranquillity you are looking for. What’s even better is that this park is in a prime location with the local market town and beach just a stone’s throw away.
There are a number of tent pitches located in the lower field with a further 39 pitches for caravans further up. Once you’re settled, you’ll notice how easy it is to access some of the wonderful attractions that Cornwall has. For example, in the local market town we mentioned earlier, you’ll find some quaint little cafes, shops and galleries. There’s the castle at Mounts Bay to enjoy and even when you remain on site, there’s plenty to do.
Wayfarers Park has a gorgeous bistro as well as a shop and a range of facilities. If you want somewhere that’s in the thick of things but still offers peace and relaxation, this park has the perfect balance.
4 Run Cottage Touring Park - Suffolk
Run Cottage is a family run business that’s located close to the market town of Woodbridge. This adult’s only camping and caravan site on the heritage coast allows you gorgeous views across a whopping 45 pitches, 20 of which are fully serviced and all have electric hook ups.
If you want something a little more luxurious, then Run Cottage also has a range of glamping pods. All of the accommodation is complemented by beautifully landscaped areas; it truly is one of the most stunning sites on this list.
This is a dog friendly site so you won’t need to leave man’s best friend behind and the area is ideal for walking and cycling. Just a few minutes walk away takes you to a small village with a pub where you can relax and enjoy a few drinks. If spending time on the beach is more your thing then you’ll be pleased to know that the coast is only half a mile away.
5 Widdicombe Farm Touring Park - Devon
Located right in the middle of the English Riviera is Widdicombe Farm Touring Park which offers a great choice of accommodation. These all weather pitches come with electricity but there is also an option to upgrade to a fully serviced pitch which is great if you want options.
The site is perfectly placed for exploring all that the South Devon coast has to offer. What’s more, there are some brilliant social spaces including Gordon’s Bar where you’ll find live entertainment and lots of friendly faces. If it’s food you’re looking for then we would recommend Poppy’s where you’ll get home made, hearty British grub in welcoming surroundings.
Widdicombe Park is also an excellent choice if you are looking to explore the most famous towns in Devon. Brixham, Paighton and Torquay are all within easy reach.
6 Old Oaks - Glastonbury
In the heart of beautiful Somerset lies the Old Oaks camping and caravan site which allows you to explore the historic and mediaeval sites of Glastonbury. Not only do you have this wonderful opportunity to check out some stunning sites but you’ll also be staying on an AA Platinum site.
What we really love about Old Oaks is that the pitches are a really good size and they’re all electric hook up. Moreover, there is an option to upgrade to a fully serviced pitch if you’d like. But of course, you’re not going to spend the whole time on this adult only site and when it comes to exploring, you’ve got places like Cheddar Gorge and Weston Super Mare right on the doorstep.
But the site itself does have a great range of facilities. Being a dog friendly site, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a dedicated, enclosed dog walking space. There’s also a shop that sells delicious baked goods and a range of takeaway food options so you don’t need to worry about cooking.

Guests must be over the age of 18 to stay at this family run site which caters to motor homes, tents, trailer tents and caravans. When you’re looking to get away from it all, Rosebud Farm is an idyllic setting that offers real rest and relaxation.
The shower block is one of the most luxurious we have seen and is fully heated for your comfort. There’s free Wi-Fi onsite and you will be able to take advantage of the breathtaking views as well as nearby sandy beaches. While this is an ideal place to relax, you’re not so far out of everything that you can’t enjoy what the local area has to offer. For example, just a 15 minute drive will bring you to a small village called St Teath, where there’s a cafe, a pub and a few small shops so you’ll have everything you need.
8 Blossom Plantation Pods - Northumberland
Camping doesn’t always have to mean staying in a tent so if you’re looking for a more luxurious getaway then the Blossom Plantation Pods in Northumberland are a must. These adult only glamping pods are located very close to Alnwick where you’ll find Alnwick castle used to film classics like Harry Potter, Transformers and Downton Abbey, among others.
Your glamping pod comes with a wood fired hot tub and a log fire so it’s a great winter option. Everything is included in your stay including bedding and towels. Each pod also benefits from a private balcony and a fire pit so you can try out your outdoor cooking skills too. If you want a relaxing break and to get away from it while camping in style, we wouldn’t recommend anywhere else.
9 Chainbridge Touring Site - Northumberland
Staying in Northumberland, we have the Chainbridge Touring Site which is situated on the River Tweed. If you’re into wildlife and nature, it’s the perfect spot as riverside walks may treat you to some striking views of jumping salmon as well as many other types of wildlife including many birds.
There are some wonderful local places of interest including Paxton House and Bamburgh Castle. You are also within easy reach of Alnwick Castle which we discussed in the previous section and is a great place for TV and film fans to explore as well as those who appreciate ancient architecture and breathtaking views.
