Happy April Fool’s Day! We’re not joking when we say that a Motorhome hire in Edinburgh is the perfect excursion for you and your family this Spring holiday!
Motorhome Hire Edinburgh
Schools close on April 1st in Scotland. If you have kids, this means you then have the challenge of keeping them entertained for a couple of weeks. We know from experience that this can be difficult. That’s why we suggest taking advantage of our motorhome hire in Edinburgh. You’ll be able to travel around the country in a comfortable home away from home. With the freedom to go wherever you want, whenever you want, you’re guaranteed to have a trip that will keep kids occupied this Spring holiday. You don’t even have to travel far to have a good time. Edinburgh and the surrounding areas have some superb activities and sights to enjoy.
April 1st also marks the first day of the year that the Lauder Camping and Caravanning Club is open after closing for Winter. Located just 40 minutes from Edinburgh, you’ll have a convenient base in which to plan your further travels. Best of all, this particular site is a Camping and Caravanning Club Site. By opting for a Rockin Vans motorhome hire in Edinburgh, you’re also giving yourself a free membership to the Camping and Caravanning Club throughout the duration of your rental period. To help you make the most of your trip, we’ve planned a brief list of places to visit within and close to Edinburgh that we think the whole family will love.
Mary King’s Close, Edinburgh
So Edinburgh is a gorgeous city with plenty of green spaces and museums for the family to enjoy. However, from what I remember of being a kid, I was way more interested in the creepy and strange parts of history. That’s why we’d recommend Mary King’s Close as a fantastic place to visit with your motorhome hire in Edinburgh. Located under the Royal Mile, Mary King’s close is shrouded in mythos and is full of interesting stories. It was named after Mary King, a merchant burgess who supposedly lived in the alleyway from 1635 onwards. It was sealed away from the public back in 1750 due to its state of decay (and the plague played a part in that.). Recently, it’s been reopened for visitors to ‘enjoy.’The Real Mary King’s Close offers a similar experience to the one that you’d get in the Edinburgh dungeons, but it has the bonus of allowing you to explore a real 17th-century street. Costumed characters act as your guides as you explore the Close that was abandoned over 400 years ago. It’s possibly not great for young children, but for older kids and adults we would highly recommend a visit.
Silver Sands, Aberdour
We think we can cautiously hope that we’re past the bad weather and headed towards some sunshine. Even if we don’t have another really warm April, we’d recommend a visit to Silver Sands beach in Aberdour with your motorhome hire in Edinburgh. It’s a unique location in that it offers you all the joys of a beach combined with the tranquillity and quietness of the countryside. If you’re wanting specific activities to do, you could follow the Fife Coastal Footpath or take a trip along the cliff top at Hawkcraig. The views are fantastic and are well worth the effort. When you’re wanting a break, there is also a kid’s play area so that they can run off their extra energy. The Blue Flag Beach is the most popular along the Fife Coast, and we’d recommend you visit there if you’re wanting to splash in the water. Lifeguards monitor the shore during the busier seasons.
Conifox Adventure Park, Kirkliston
Sometimes you just need a good run about. That goes for both actual children and the children at heart. As an adult may have intentions of playing it cool, but when you see what the Conifox Adventure Park has on offer, you’ll be right in there. Seriously, have a look at their gallery. We took one look at the Giant Jump Pillow and were instantly sold. Additionally, the Adventure Park has a 9-hole football golf course, pedal go-karts, trampolines, rope bridges, swings and tons more that you and your kids will enjoy. It’s located about 20 minutes from the city centre, so not too far a journey with your motorhome hire in Edinburgh.
We do understand how difficult holidays from school can be. That’s why a motorhome hire in Edinburgh can make life easier. It makes for a nice break away from the home that doesn’t cost you a ridiculous amount of money. For more information, please feel free to get in contact. Not only will we be happy to assist you with any hiring enquiries, but our team will have plenty for suggestions for places to visit.
