3 top caravan country escapes

Get back to nature and admire some of the most glorious examples of the great outdoors.

Sometimes escaping to greenery and getting back to nature is the only way to really relax. These caravan country escapes are the perfect opportunities to reset your circadian rhythms, relight your love of the environment and rediscover your wild side.
1. Countryside bliss
While the biggest granite surface in England may not sound visually appealing as many other destinations, dramatic Dartmoor National Park's rugged countryside offers sights you won't find anywhere else in the world. Above the moorlands and untouched wilderness spreads some of the most glorious skyscapes, too, whether sunsets, cloud cover, or beautiful blue skies are your thing.

Get back to nature in Norfolk.
Near Fakenham, a little inland from the Norfolk coast, you'll stumble upon sweeping landscapes and wonderful woodland at almost every turn. Pensthorpe Natural Park is a conservation park playing host to woodland and wetland wonders – an experimental nature and wellbeing project that shouldn't be missed.
Site-wise, what's great about Kelling Heath Holiday Park is that, despite being on the coast, it's like a country escape in itself. Hidden away in natural surroundings, it's also a registered Dark Sky Discovery Site, meaning that you're sleeping under the stars and avoiding light pollution, all within the comfort and convenience of a well-equipped campsite experience.

Waterside wellness in wonderful Windermere.
Firstly, if you're heading to Windermere in the Lake District, don't solely follow your sat-nav. Do some due diligence and make sure you're on roads that are navigable while you're towing, as some routes can be tight. However, there are confidence-inspiring routes from the north and south, even if you dare to take on the enjoyable challenge of the Kirkstone Pass from Ullswater.
There are an almost endless number of walking options around Windermere, with watersport activities in good weather and scrambles in the crags for anyone looking for an extra sense of adventure. If you're looking for the perfect combination between accessibility, entertainment and escapism head to Bowness.
