When I think about camping the first thing that comes to my mind is the word “Uncomfortable”. The thought of having to walk outside – in the middle of the night – looking for a toilet didn’t sound great at all and of course, not forgetting the ever changing weather in the UK.

Finding a good campsite was the first thing in our list so, James researched on the internet looking for the best reviews he could find on campsites located in Wales. 

Questions to ask yourself when looking for the best campsites:

  1. Where do you want to go? Choose a campsite that is suitable for the amount of people you are going with.
  2. Is it a family holiday?, Group of friends? or just the two of you?
  3. What type of campsite are you looking for?
  4. How are you gonna get there?
  5. How long is it gonna take you?
  6. Does the campsite have toilets and showers available at any time?
  7. How many electric ports does the campsite have?
  8. Is the campsite pet friendly?
  9. Is the campsite near to attractions?
  10. How far is the campsite from a Coffee Shop / Restaurant?
  11. What would like to do or see ones you arrive to your destination?

We didn’t want go for an extreme camping experience so buying a tent wasn’t an option. In instead, we hired a VW California. I can say now, that hiring that van was the best decision ever! – I guess, this is more glamping than camping after all-.
