Birmingham to the Lake District Camper

Land Rover Discovery to rent in Scotland

Arriving at Rockin Vans Birmingham

I recently hired a Motorhome from Rockin Vans. My family of 4, myself, husband and two toddler boys travelled from RVB (the Birmingham depot). There was, as you can imagine a lot of things to pack for the children! Nappies, clothes, coats, wellies and a fair amount of toys/games to cover the travel time! The location was easy to get to and the range of vehicles was great. We arrived to the showroom to see a VW Caddy but after sitting in a VW Campervan we fell in love. We came to find that Rockin Vans have 3 locations in which they hire from. Kilmarnock, Edinburgh and Birmingham. The largest depot being Birmingham. They also had a few Midsize vehicles but we’ve always wanted to try out a VW and the Campervan was more than enough for us. As we also had purchasing one in mind Rockin Vans offered us a try before your buy hire.

Our Trip to the Lake District

We set out from Birmingham in our VW in the morning heading towards the Lake District. We stopped off for a cup of tea which was very easy with our Campervan because of the leisure battery and gas that comes with the vehicle. We also popped to the Tebay service station before we arrived at our destination as my eldest was ‘desperate’ and couldn’t wait the 5 minutes we had until we arrived! The boys had a lovely time in the back during the travel there with their colouring books and even had a run about in the field next to where we parked when we had our cup of tea. When we arrived we set up for the afternoon and found a lovely spot in Angle Tarn. As we hired the Campervan in January it was quite chilly but this was easily combatted with the heating in the van. The views from the spot were amazing, we did contact Rockin Vans directly to ask where was best for wild camping, this was the spot they recommended and what a great location it was! We spent the night here, all the while the Rockin Vans Birmingham team were in contact to check everything was going well. Which it was! Whilst in the Lake District we visited ‘Windermere’ which is the home of Beatrix Potter. This was a fantastic experience, the boys really enjoyed themselves as well as they are very fond of ‘Peter Rabbit’, it did cost quite a bit but was well worth it! Even the souvenirs we purchased (toddlers are expensive) were worth the money as they haven’t been put down since! The next day we went over to ‘The Lakes Aquarium’ this wasn’t a long drive away and once again for a family with small children is ideal for a bit of fun. The attraction was lovely and clean and exactly what you would expect from an aquarium. This wasn’t as expensive as our previous destination and the boys again enjoyed themselves. We headed over to a local pub for our dinner that night, ‘The Woolpack Inn’, where we enjoyed a delicious well priced pub meal of fish and chips of course!

Onwards to Snowdonia

We then made our way over to travelled over to Snowdonia as it was always something we wanted to see and hopefully reach the top! We were a bit peckish as we left our Lake District location quite early to head to North Wales. We stopped off at ‘Caffi Gwynant’ right at the base of Snowdon for a gorgeous full English. Unfortunately we did not reach near the top of the mountain (I think this was a bit of an ambitious thought with the kids) but the views from the journey and where we did get to were absolutely beautiful. Whilst we were here we did visit ‘Gelerts Grave’ the story is heartbreaking. I have attached a link here be warned, it may invoke tears if your an emotional Mum like me! https://www.beddgelerttourism.com/gelert/ the trail was very interesting and was thoroughly enjoyable. Some of my family live in Porthmadog which is about a half an hour drive from this location so we stopped there overnight. Our Campervan was very suitable and extremely comfortable throughout the duration. Rockin Vans continued to check on us the whole time and gave us little tips and tricks which were very much appreciated.

Home Time 🙁

Regrettably after spending four days in our lovely little VW Camper it was time to travel back to Birmingham. The staff were very interested in what we got up to so we told them all about our time away, they even asked to see some pictures we took and took a genuine interest. Since our trip away we have been looking to purchase our own but we may head back to Rockin Vans Birmingham to hire a Midsize this time to get a feel for one of those before deciding on which one suits us best. We have never visited Scotland and would love to see the sights in Edinburgh! In short Rockin Vans have given me a new hobby and I can’t wait to return to the depot in Birmingham for our next adventure!

Birmingham to Scotland in a campervan

I work for Rockin Vans, so I thought ‘why not give camping a try, in a campervan!’. I had been camping before, but never in a campervan! So, myself and my partner grabbed a van, and went from Birmingham.

As Birmingham isn’t the best holiday location, (you can’t really camp in Birmingham!), we headed up North. We really wanted to try some wild camping. As this isn’t allowed in England, we headed for Scotland. However, we found out that wild camping is allowed in the Lake District, as long as you are considerate about where you park and leave no sign of camping.

We found some lovely spots in the Lake District and ended up staying in different spots for two nights. The gorgeous scenery relaxed us no end! We found that this was the beauty of camping with a campervan…. No plan required!

As we carried on up North into Scotland, the scenery just carried on amazing us. Having never been to Scotland like this before, we were stopping every few miles just to take in the views. And the number of other campervans and motorhomes around – it’s a real community!

We found some beautiful places to camp in Scotland. We camped up in the Cairngorms National Park – My Gosh, the views! Even on our way home, around Edinburgh, words cannot describe! Being a capital city, you wouldn’t think it would be so amazing around Edinburgh, but it was!

We had to leave the campervan up in Edinburgh, but even that was so easy to do – with the Edinburgh depot just 10 minutes away from the airport, we were home quicker on the plane than we would have been driving the campervan!

All in all, we had a wonderful van-cation! We will most definitely be taking a campervan up to Scotland again.

Hey… next time, we might even take a motorhome so we can take showers in comfort, on the road!

Budget VW Campervan Hire Edinburgh

It’s almost September 1st; the day where Hogwarts students embark on the Hogwarts Express for their first day of school. If you want to celebrate the magical world of Harry Potter, why not visit the inspirations with our budget VW campervan hire in Edinburgh

Budget VW Campervan Hire Edinburgh

Any time is a good time to embrace the magic of Harry Potter. While there are fantastic attractions abroad or in England to celebrate the series, you can get an amazingly authentic fan experience from a visit to Edinburgh. This is because Edinburgh is where J.K. Rowling wrote a majority of the first book. The capital of Scotland was the inspiration for the wizarding world; with names and places within the city featuring in a number of books. We’d recommend that any Harry Potter fan make use of our budget VW Campervan hire in Edinburgh in order to get a new appreciation for the places that inspired the series.

There are a number of excellent tours within the city; tailored-made for fans of the Harry Potter books and films. However, you can make your own magical adventure if you know the right places to look.

Victoria Street

One of the first places you should visit with your budget VW campervan hire in Edinburgh. As soon as you step on the curved street with restaurants and stored piled together haphazardly, you’ll instantly know what this particular location inspired. While it isn’t confirmed to have been the inspiration for Diagon Alley, you will nonetheless feel like you have apparated into the Wizarding streets of Britain. It is a fantastic photography spot for fans keen to capture the magic without paying to go to London and see the Diagon Alley set.

Edinburgh City Chambers

After Victoria Street, you can continue down the Royal Mile until you encounter Edinburgh City Chambers. Now, we know this may not seem like the most exciting place to visit with your budget VW campervan hire in Edinburgh, but trust when we say it’s a place all hardcore Harry Potter fans should visit. In 2008, J.K. Rowling was awarded the Edinburgh award. Consequently, her handprints have been reproduced on a flagstone in the front of the City Chambers. It’s in a similar vein the Hollywood Walk of Fame as you’ll find some other cool handprints here from people like Ian Rankin and Sir Chris Hoy.

Greyfriars Kirkyard

You might be wondering why we’re suggesting you visit a graveyard with your budget VW campervan hire in Edinburgh. It’s a fair thing to wonder. However, we promise that Harry Potter fans will be delighted with a visit to this particular cemetery. As it is located to the cafe where Rowling visited frequently, it has been rumoured that she got a lot of inspiration from the gravestones that reside in Greyfriars. The most famous of the graves being Thomas Riddell who may have inspired Lord Voldemorts birth name; Tom Marvolo Riddle. Here, there is also the grave of William McGonagall and Elizabeth Moodie.

The Elephant House

Located in the old town, this is a place that cafe that every Harry Potter fan should visit at least once. It is known as the place that J.K. Rowling penned the first book. While there isn’t anything that initially screams ‘Harry Potter,’ if you take a visit to the toilets you will see a shrine to the series in the form of graffiti from thousands of fans. It’s also known to serve really great hot chocolate and coffee, so it is definitely worth a visit with our budget VW campervan hire in Edinburgh.

Midsize Motorhome Hire Scotland

Midsize Motorhome Hire

As of a couple of days ago, most Scottish schools are now back from their summer break. So, it’s the perfect time for tourists or adults to take advantage of our midsize motorhome hire in Scotland and peacefully enjoy the last of the warmer seasons

Midsize Motorhome Hire Scotland

Midsize Motorhome to hire from Rockin Vans

The summer holidays are a great time for families with kids to enjoy all the activities and sights that the country has to offer. There is so much to see and do during the summertime in Scotland, and it makes sense to take advantage. However, if you’re wanting a quieter experience, the school summer holidays can be a bit of a nightmare. A number of the fantastic attractions on offer are overcrowded; with screaming children vocalising their displeasure at the wait times this produces. It’s also slightly harder to enjoy the views of the magnificent Scottish Highlands when you’re stuck in amongst a crowd. The sweet spot between the end of summer and the school holidays being done is the perfect time for an adventure in our midsize motorhome hire in Scotland. 

If you’re looking to avoid the crowds while travelling in a midsize motorhome hire in Scotland, we have some fantastic suggestions for locations. While we’re happy to advise you in person in one of our stores, we thought we’d list a few here to get you started on ideas.

The Isle of Tiree

If you’re wanting some peace and quiet this summer, the Scottish islands are the way to go. There are the most well-known islands like Arran and Skye, but those are more likely to have tourists as they are internationally recognised. The Isle of Tiree is ideal for people wanting a quiet journey in a midsize motorhome hire in Scotland as it has all the beauty of Skye and Arran; minus the tourists. It makes for a gorgeous summer location, as it has long stretches of golden beaches that make you feel like you’re in a significantly more exotic location than Scotland. There is plenty to see and do here if you’re not wanting one of those quieter holidays where you do nothing but relax. There are a number of Iron Age fortresses to be explored on Tiree and a ton of wildlife to appreciate. 

 Moray

It’s really surprising that more people don’t visit Moray as, according to the Met Office, it is one of the drier and sunnier spots of the country. The East side of the country is known for being less wet and miserable than the West, but the East Lothian parts are significantly busier than Moray. While Lothian has the bigger tourist spots, Moray has a lot to offer to those wanting a more relaxed and unique trip in our midsize motorhome hire in Scotland. Not many people take a visit to this luxurious spot due to its proximity to Edinburgh, but those who do are greatly rewarded with stunning sandy beaches and quaint fishing villages. We’d highly recommend a trip here with a midsize motorhome hire in Scotland. 

Isle of Cumbrae

Wanting to visit a quieter spot isn’t necessarily synonymous with wanting to have a quiet holiday. Maybe you still want an action-packed time; just slightly away from flocks of tourists and families. The Isle of Cumbrae is the ideal location. It is just a ten-minute ferry ride off the coast of Largs. It’s well known for being a fantastic cycling location; people travel to the town of Millport to hire bikes and then cycle the circumference of the island. There are also many cafes, restaurants and seaside attractions to be enjoyed. It’s a fantastic island to visit with our midsize motorhome hire in Scotland as it is easily accessible. Vehicles are welcomed aboard the ferry, or you can opt to park in Largs.

Campervan and Motorhome Hire England

VW Camper Hire in England and Scotland

It’s July 25th, which means schools are officially off for the Summer in England. Are you stuck for things to do this school holiday? Why not set off on an epic adventure with our campervan and motorhome hire in England?

Campervan and Motorhome Hire England

VW Camper Hire at a campsite in England

Who doesn’t love a summer break? Sure, adults maybe can’t take off six weeks as they did in school, but those couple of weeks you do get are great. The memories you make with your family and friends over the summer, are memories you take with you for the rest of your life. You don’t have to go on an expensive holiday abroad in order to have a fantastic summer. England is full of fantastic attractions and locations for you to enjoy while the British sun is still playing ball. If you want to make the most of your summer, you should consider making use of Rockin Van’s campervan and motorhome hire in England.

Seriously, there are so many things to see and do and England. Did you know that there are over twenty theme parks spread across the UK? Most of them are situated in England. If you’re looking to emulate the excitement of going abroad without actually paying to hop on a plane and fork out for hotels; a theme park is a way to go. Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and Flamingo make for some of the top attractions in the UK. However, we’d also suggest The Pleasure Beach as a fantastic theme park. Not just because of the rides, but because it is situated within Blackpool. If you’re truly wanting to emulate an attraction filled holiday abroad with your campervan and motorhome hire in England; there is no better place to be than Blackpool. Here, you have Zoos, the Blackpool Tower, Sea Life, Madame Tussauds and an indoor waterpark.

However, if you’re not a fan of rollercoasters and candyfloss, you don’t have to worry. England has something for everyone. The number of museums available for you to visit with your campervan and motorhome hire in England is staggering. You have the National Railway Museum in York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Musical Museum in Brentford; you also need to consider that this is just a really small sampling. We weren’t kidding when we said there was something for everyone. However, you don’t rent a campervan just to stay indoors all day. Thankfully, England is host to a number of fantastic outdoors spots.

With your campervan and motorhome hire in England, you could visit beaches, parks, stunning natural wonders and exciting historical sites. You could visit Stonehenge and then end your day relaxing on Bournemouth Beach. A campervan means you have the choice to create a bespoke holiday that is filled with activities that your family will love. Best of all, you aren’t held ransom by hotel fees and network rail. Instead, you can travel where you want, when you want. You’ll be free to explore in a home away from home; saving you a lot of money. Our campervans and motorhomes come equipped with a fully functioning kitchen, so you don’t have to pay for expensive restaurants or resign yourself to living off McDonald’s. For more information or travel tips, please feel free to get in contact. Our team will be happy to assist.

Campervan and Motorhome Hire Glasgow

It’s officially summer! Now is the perfect time to go on an adventure with a campervan or motorhome hire. Glasgow residents have lucked out as they have easy access to a Rockin Vans depot!

Campervan and Motorhome Hire Glasgow

We would definitely encourage residents of Glasgow to utilise our campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow to get out and see the rest of the country. However, those who don’t have the pleasure of living there should do the reverse. Why not make it a stop on your next campervan or motorhome journey? Glasgow has a ton of fantastic activities and some really cool locations to explore. As it is summer, there are also a number of fun events spread throughout the city that the whole family will love. If you’re still not convinced, we’d happily spend all day raving about the many positive aspects of the city. However, not many people will have a full day free to listen to us. So, here is a list of some reasons as to why you should visit Glasgow with your campervan or motorhome hire.

The Parks

Glasgow is home to a number of fantastic parks. Each has its own unique selling point, but all of them are beautiful and provide a much-needed contrast to the sights of the city. For those making of a campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow, we’d highly recommend taking a visit to Pollok Country Park. It’s 146-hectares worth of stunning woodlands and filled to the brim with things to do. There is a play park for the kids, highland cows, woodland walks, walled gardens and even a museum. The Burrell Collection is a fantastic museum that displays the many unusual and fascinating artefacts collected by Sir William Burrell. Pollok Park is just one of the many superb parks within Glasgow, so definitely be sure to give a fair chunk of them a look.

The Cultural Sites

Despite what you may have heard Edinburgh doesn’t have all the fascinating Scottish cultural sites. While we would recommend taking a visit, you can just as much cultural enrichment with a campervan and motorhome hire visit to Glasgow. One such place is the Glasgow Necropolis. It’s somewhat of a grim visit, being that necropolis literally means ‘city of the dead,’ but it is an incredibly interesting location for a number of reasons. Not only is it home to 50,000 people from the past, but it also played an important role in the history of the medieval City of Glasgow. Tours are run daily for those interested. If a visit to the dead isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Glasgow has plenty of other cultural splendours to enjoy. You could take a visit to George Square or St Mungo’s cathedral to get your fix. Glasgow is also home to a number of museums that are free to enter.

The Food

If you’re a fan of food, Glasgow is the perfect city to visit. As it is such a diverse city with residents from all over the globe, there are restaurants that serve delights from every continent. Whether you love Chinese, Italian, Greek, Japanese, Indian, Polish or German cuisine, Glasgow will have the place for you. It’s well known that the city has an ever-evolving food and drink scene, with Finnieston recommended as a highlight in particular. For those campervan enthusiasts who have opted for a more eco-friendly way of life, Glasgow is also known as one of the UK’s most vegan-friendly cities.

The Music Scene

Glasgow is a fantastic place to visit if you’re a fan of music. It was named as the UK’s first UNESCO City of Music, as it has one of the most vibrant music scenes throughout the sovereign state. It’s a hotspot for live performance. Where other cities across the country are shutting down venues, Glasgow has only opened more. Bands from across the globe have been making a stop at Glasgow, the Hydro, in particular, so you’re sure to find a show that you’ll love every night of the week. It’s also well known for the many fantastic festivals held throughout the year. If you’re able to utilise a campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow this weekend, you could give the Trnsmt festival a visit.

The Shopping

For those who enjoy a little retail therapy, Glasgow is the perfect spot to visit with a campervan and motorhome hire. Glasgow is a shoppers paradise. The mile between Buchanan Street and Argyle Street contains an immense amount of branded stores and smaller shops. It’s known as the Style Mile and you’ll be guaranteed to find what you’re looking for and more here. If you’re interested in more exclusive (expensive) stores, Glasgow also provides that. Princes Square is home to global brands such as Jo Malone, Vivienne Westwood and Kurt Geiger.

If you have the option to travel with a campervan and motorhome, Glasgow should be at the top of the list. If you’re a Glasgow resident wanting to make a trip outside of the city, get in contact for more information on our campervan and motorhome hire in Glasgow. Our team would be delighted to assist.

Campervan and Motorhome Hire Scotland

Midsize to hire from Rockin Vans London and Edinburgh

It’s almost International Day of Yoga. June 21st is dedicated to the holistic approach to body and mind. To celebrate, why not take a visit to some serene locations with our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland.

Campervan and Motorhome Hire Scotland

Midsize Motorhome Hire

While we are big advocates of having an adventure in Scotland, there is a lot to be said for stopping to smell the roses. Yoga is all about having a calming mind and that’s something we believe everyone could with more of. Plus, it’s only a couple of days until the school summer holidays properly begin. So, there isn’t a better time for the parents of Scotland to try and cram in a more relaxing trip. Whether you have kids or you don’t, you deserve a relaxing trip to recharge for the second half of the year. Our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland offers the perfect opportunity in which to relax in some of Scotland’s most relaxing locations.

To make your serene getaway even more relaxing, we’ve decided to take all the stress of finding locations away. We’ve prepared a small list of calming places in Scotland to visit with our campervan and motorhome hire to get you started.

Mainland, Orkney

If you want a quiet trip away with our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland, you’re not going to get much quieter than a visit to Orkney. We’re not going to lie, it’s a wee bit of trial to get there. However, it is so worth it. The mainland is the main island of Orkney, but there are other small islands that you could visit if you so desired. Not that you’d really need to, the Mainland has a lot to offer. Here, you’ll be able to visit a number of significant archaeological sites and see a variety of wildlife. For those who find historical and mysterious monuments peaceful, the Orkney islands will be perfect. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site due to its fascinating array of tombs, stone circles and Neolithic monuments. It’s the perfect location to visit with a campervan as it means you’ll have a guaranteed place to sleep. Just drive your rental vehicle to Scrabster and you can get a ferry to Stromness.

Galloway Forest Park, Dumfries and Galloway

For some, the most serene experience possible is just lying back and looking up at the stars. Unfortunately, light pollution has somewhat ruined this experience for most city dwellers. Which is why our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland is the perfect opportunity. Scotland lucky enough to have a location that is perfect for viewing the night sky. Galloway Forest Park in Dumfries and Galloway has been honoured with the highly coveted Dark Sky Park status. These protected places are about as minimally affected by light pollution as possible in an inhabited area. To enhance the experience, the park even contains two powerful telescopes in the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory. It’s a relatively easy drive, making it a stress-free journey all around.

Jura, Inner Hebrides

Perhaps a serene trip for you is one full of inspiration. This secluded island must be full of inspiration as it is known to be the location in which George Orwell wrote his famous novel, “1984.” It is the perfect place to write a novel. It is a very quiet place to be; with the island only having 196 inhabitants. While you probably won’t find the time to be able to write a full best-selling novel while enjoying our campervan and motorhome hire in Scotland (feel free to prove us wrong), you’ll certainly be able to enjoy the quiet ambience. If you’re wanting to keep to a more relaxing trip, we’d advise staying away from the Corryvreckan whirlpool, otherwise, you should be fine to enjoy a peaceful time away.

These are just a small sample of the many stunning locations the dwell within Scotland. There are so many more waiting to be discovered. If you truly want to get into the spirit of yoga day, why not use our campervan and motorhome in Scotland to visit one of the countries many yoga retreats? For more information on our vehicle rentals, please feel free to get in contact. Our team will be delighted to help.

Campervan and Motorhome Hire UK

You just missed World Oceans Day! On June 8th, the UN celebrated the lungs of our planet with a number of events. You could still get involved by planning a trip to the UK’s great coasts with a campervan and motorhome hire!

Campervan and Motorhome Hire UK

The ocean is one of the great unexplored areas of the planet. Did you know that more than eighty percent of our Earth’s oceans are currently unmapped and unexplored? There is so much still to be learned about what lurks beneath the depths. We’re a fan of adventure here at Rockin Vans, but we’re not suggesting that you hastily purchase a boat and go out without a clue. That could only lead to disaster. Instead, why not plan a trip to visit some of the stunning seaside locations that are dotted throughout the UK. Our campervan and motorhome hire in the UK will allow you the freedom to go where you want when you want.

However, we do know that this level of freedom does come along with its own set of problems. It’s hard to know where to begin when there are so many options out there. Being that the team at Rockin Vans is dedicated to helping our clients; we’ve compiled a small list of ideas for places in which to enjoy the seaside in the UK.

Rhossili Bay Beach, Swansea

We fear we may have peaked early by mentioning this one first, but you won’t regret taking a visit to this particular location with our campervan and motorhome hire in the UK. According to the kind folks who voted on TripAdvisor’s Travellers Choice Awards, Rhossili Bay is Wale’s Best Beach. It also took 3rd place in the poll for the UK’s best beach. It’s easy to see why, as the gorgeous three-mile long stretch of sandy shore encompasses a number of famous landmarks. If you want to properly appreciate the sea, this is the place to be. Due to its location at the western tip of the peninsula, it’s also a fantastic spot for surfers and paragliders. For those needing to transport equipment to enjoy the sea, making use of our campervan hire is a particularly smart choice.

Formby Beach, Liverpool

If you’re looking to celebrate the sea in a more educational way, Formby beach is the ideal location to visit with our campervan and motorhome hire in the UK. If you’re interested in natural history, this is a beach that you won’t want to skip. Due to the ongoing erosion of the shore, the tides reveal prehistoric mud layers. Apparently, if you scour the beach and take a close look, you have the chance of spotting some ancient animal footprints. Even if history isn’t your thing, the beaches are still gorgeous. On a clear day, you get a stunning view of the mountains of Cumbria. For those who like to be beside the sea, but don’t like the hassle of carrying a metric ton of sand with you, there is also a wooded area waiting to be explored. A campervan will allow you to easily carry picnic equipment, which means you can make use of the conveniently located picnic area.

Watergate Bay, Newquay

With two miles of golden sand and natural beauty; a visit to Watergate Bay with our campervan and motorhome hire in the UK will be liking driving into a postcard. The beach is set at the foot of steep cliffs, giving you a dramatic backdrop in which to enjoy the many thrilling activities of this shore. It’s a popular destination for watersports and a number of events are held in Watergate Bay throughout the year. Watergate Bay is well known as a surfing beach. However, due to the Extreme Academy, there are also the options of horse riding, kiting or even waterskiing. It’s a fantastic spot to take a campervan as you can carry apparatus for these activities with you.

For more information on seaside locations to visit with your campervan and motorhome hire in the UK, feel free to ask one of our team. When you pick you your rental vehicle, they’ll be happy to offer suggestions. Additionally, you can get in contact with us via our site for more information on our vans.

Midsize Motorhome Hire UK

It’s the Spring Bank Holiday! While it might be too late to take advantage of our Rockin Van’s Midsize Motorhome hire today, you have the full summer to take a journey across the UK!

Midsize Motorhome Hire UK

Mini Camper hire

Hopefully, everyone is enjoying their extra day off of work and school. May is a pretty amazing month for extra days off, with there being a bank holiday on the first and last Monday of the month. Don’t worry if you didn’t take advantage of the time this year; there is always the next. However, we have to admit that three hundred and sixty-six days is a long time to wait (next year is a leap year). Instead, you could take this opportunity to plan an amazing summer excursion with one of our midsize motorhomes hires in the UK. There is nothing quite like being able to take full control of your own holiday. Instead of being held to the whims of hotels and train companies, you can travel where you want, when you want.

We know how it is. Your friends and family are jetting off to Orlando or Italy this summer, and you’re left to maybe plan a wee day trip to your local beach. We’re here to reassure you that there are better ways to enjoy the UK this sunny season. There are some amazing locations to enjoy throughout the various countries of the sovereign state. We have a blog full of them, but we’re happy to reiterate. In fact, you can feel free to ask the team for recommendations in person when you come in to pick up your midsize motorhome hire. UK residents are truly blessed as not only are there a number of historical marvels and some amazing natural landscapes to be enjoyed, but we also have a booming tourist industry that has led to a number of attractions being invested in.

To get you started on planning your trip with your midsize motorhome hire in the UK, we’re happy to suggest a few ideas for attractions to visit. There are the obvious suggestions, such as Blackpool. Honestly, you won’t find better seaside attractions anywhere else. Here you have access to the iconic Blackpool Tower, the Pleasure Beach, multiple piers and a number of Merlin attractions. For those looking for a more low-key escape, we would suggest somewhere like the Lake District or even the Scottish Highlands. No matter where you decide, a motorhome can give you the freedom to do more with your holiday. You could choose to explore multiple attractions within one area or even just make a trip of visiting cities throughout the UK.

Admittedly, we are a little bias here at Rockin Vans. Many of our team grew up enjoying many a Summer spent in an RV, campervan, caravan or motorhome. The memories created and special moments enjoyed, prompted a passion for this lifestyle that continued well into adulthood. What we’re saying, is that we are proof for just how much the freedom to travel can enhance your life. We know what makes for a fantastic van conversion, so our midsize motorhome hire in the UK is guaranteed to delight and inspire a love for motorhomes. For more information, feel free to get in contact.
