Family Road Trip to Cornwall

Family Road Trip to Cornwall

Emma Narramore shares details of her family break in one of Rockin Vans Midsize Motorhomes.

It’s always such a release to jump in a car and be off for a long weekend, but this time we hired a motorhome to take our two kids away for a few days on the gorgeous South Coast of England.

We booked a spacious Midsize Motorhome for our trip which was a great idea as there was plenty of room to sleep four of us (two adults and two small monkeys disguised as children) and we were able to keep everything safe and dry while we explored the countryside and beaches. The drive down to Dorset was easy. We stopped off at Moors Valley Country Park, near Ringwood, to let off some steam and enjoyed the Play Trail with its unique pieces of wooden play equipment situated on a gorgeous mile walk.

South Lytchett Manor is situated in the beautiful Dorset countryside and is a favourite with campers from all over the country. We got ourselves settled and headed to the local pub for dinner and a few board games. When we got back, we tucked up in the bunks for a good sleep. It already felt like a home from home. The next day we woke early and decided to meet our neighbors. The kids were soon off with their new friends to the adventure playground and we were able to relax with the papers.

At the end of a lovely day, we headed east to our second campsite, Nunnington Farm in Sussex, and arrived just before dark. The owners were very welcoming and helped us to set up, we cooked in the van before settling down for a well-deserved sleep. This site is a great place for kids with an adventure playground and petting farm. We let them run free and we actually got to read a book and drink coffee…. it’s the simple things!

We had a lazy morning, cooking breakfast in our motorhome while the kids played outside. After lunch we headed to the beautiful sandy beaches. We discovered a one mile stretch of sand dunes where the kids tried their hand at a bit of crabbing. On the way back, we stopped at a great pub for some fish and chips before returning to our comfy home from home. On the final day, I woke up with that sad feeling that we were heading back, but with everything so easily packed away we were able to enjoy the morning with our new four-legged friends in the petting farm before heading north.

We can’t wait for our next adventure!

Emma and her family hired a Midsize Motorhome from Rockin Vans.

Nadia and Mike aka Couple Travel the World have been traveling the world together since 2008. They head out to explore the Great British countryside, in an orange VW Camper from Rockin Vans. Read about their adventures here.

Hi, we are Nadia and Mike, couple travel bloggers @coupletraveltheworld We are taking over the Rockin Vans instagram page to take you on an epic campervan journey of the UK! We have decided to name our camper Red Ned. Well, as you can see, Ned is in fact orange but nothing rhymes with orange and Red Ned has a better ring to it, don’t you think? Follow us (and Ned) as we explore some of the best places to travel in the UK! .

After Glasgow we visited Loch Lomond. We had seen pictures of the gorgeous Lodge on Loch Lomond and simply had to visit as we were passing by. Many Scottish people actually chose to get married here as the whole premises is absolutely stunning. The rooms are decked out in Scottish luxury with tartan trimmings and even private saunas! We were beyond impressed as we have never seen a hotel room with both a private sauna and a view to die for!

After Glasgow, we ventured with Red Ned (our rockin van) to Loch Lomond. We would highly recommend visiting Loch Lomond on a Scotland road trip, it is so picturesque, we could spend hours admiring the view
