Incredible coastal campsites in the UK
We love nothing more than a few hours out on the water. You will often find us swimming, on the surf boards or on the paddleboards, so we are always looking out for the BEST campsites for paddleboarding and therefore close to the sea or a lake or river. Over the years we have added a few great campsites to our favourites list. Spending time in a VWT5 as family of five, finding a campsite with direct access to the beach means we don’t have to pack up and move the campervan for a day by the water.
Discover our most loved campsites across the UK with an EPIC seaview. Here are a few of our top campsites, tried and tested, and much loved.
