Great British Escapes Enjoy the Royal Wedding from inspiring locations
March 12, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsIf you're brimming with British pride or simply seeking to make the most of the Royal wedding bank holiday bonanza, Keycamp's UK Escapes holidays start from just £134 for three nights, offering an authentic camping experience for all the family.
As London draws in tourists, why not delight in the best of the old Blighty countryside, by escaping to one of eleven sites in Britain's most beautiful locations from the Lake District to Snowdonia.
UK Escapes offer traditional family camping with a helping hand from Keycamp. Don't worry about packing up camping equipment, as a comfortable six-berth tent, complete with a large living area and three separate sleeping compartments with beds, pillows and blankets will be ready upon your arrival.
The self-catered accommodation includes a 4-burner hob, crockery, cutlery, wind-up lanterns and a cool box for the option of a picnic and so families can enjoy camping to the full. Each tent also comes with an outdoor table, chairs and a charcoal barbecue. With a shop, good-quality toilet and shower facilities all on-site, there are plenty of home comforts to ensure a hassle-free break.
Snowdonia – Three nights from £134 per party
Set within tranquil forest, surrounded by the dramatic Welsh hills and with views of Mount Snowdon overhead, Keycamp's Beddgelert provides a true back-to-nature camping experience.
The rugged area of Snowdonia also has plenty to keep adventure seekers entertained, from white water rafting at the Tryweryn Trail to abseiling, gorge walking, canoeing and paragliding. Gentler pursuits can be had on the many hill walking trails nearby.
Portmeirion Village, a unique Italian-inspired spot on the southern shores of Snowdonia is in easy reach of the site where families will be wowed by the traditional buildings which appear to be straight from the streets of Portofino.
A three night break starting from 29 April for a family of two adults and up to four children staying in a UK Tent at Beddgelert will cost £134, accommodation only.
The Lakes – Three nights from £143 per party
Lake Windermere has long been the sanctuary of poets and artists and with Keycamp's Low Wray – a National Trust campsite situated on serene shores – families are guaranteed to get close to the inspiring beauty of the British countryside.
Leave the car behind, as foot and boat are best ways to experience the Lakes. Dramatic walks to Ambleside, Hawkshead and Coniston Old Man are in reach and the site even offers its own launching area and a choice of opportunities for sailing, canoeing and windsurfing.
Close by, the Beatrix Potter Gallery, based in the much-loved writer's home, offers families the chance to walk straight into the pages of their favourite Peter Rabbit or Mrs Tiggywinkle tales. For those who can't resist watching the highlights of the Royal nuptials or just fancy a cosy meal, there's a host of traditional pubs nearby.
A three night break starting from 29 April for a family of two adults and up to four children staying in a UK Tent at Low Wray will cost £143, accommodation only.
