And for those wanting to experience nature in its simplest form and get the very most out this unique experience, Forest Rangers are at hand at all seven Forestry Commission campsites, to share their knowledge on survival skills like safe fire making, animal tracking and shelter building.

Eurocamp's Chris Hilton said: "More people than ever are interspersing holidays abroad with short breaks and weekends away in the UK that are a convenient drive from home. Escaping everyday routine simply by spending quality time with friends and family has never been considered so valuable.

"We're rediscovering the emotional benefits of the outdoors, wildlife and natural surroundings membership of groups like the National Trust and RSPB has risen significantly in recent years and, as we do, the demand for domestic breaks will be further fuelled."

The self-catering accommodation also comes complete with a 4-burner hob, utensils, cutlery, wind-up lanterns and even a cool box for those picturesque picnics. This really is UK camping at its best.
