But that doesn’t mean your staycation can’t be just as relaxing as going abroad! There are many spectacular spots to travel in the UK which are also home to many luxurious campsites. If you’re hoping to enjoy relaxing in a hot tub on your camping trip, (or glamping if you’re treating yourself), but aren’t sure where to look, then search no further! Here are some of the best campsites in the UK’s greatest camping destinations.
It isn’t surprising that Cornwall is a very popular destination for motorhome vacations. It’s sandy white beaches and charming fishing villages are enough to draw anyone to visit for a relaxing vacation and a cold pint. If you aren’t planning to spend your days swimming, it’s best to visit in spring when the flowers are blooming. Alternatively, you can visit in June and September, when the weather is still enjoyable but the area is less packed.
And to avoid panic searching, “Where can I go glamping with a hot tub near me?” here are a few luxurious campsites to kick back and relax with a hot tub.
Pencuke Farm campsite is perfect for visitors of all ages stopping by Cornwall. You can wake up to admire spectacular views of the sea while you have your morning cup of tea.

The best part is that the beach is within walking distance of the campsite, so you can easily spend your days enjoying the cool blue waters. Most importantly, this is a dog-friendly site, so you don’t have to worry about leaving your furry best friend behind!
