Summer 2016 family camping ideas

Outside is the biggest adventure playground a child could wish for – which is why camping is so exciting for kids of all ages. As a family we’ve had so much fun camping and being together in the great outdoors. Often simplicity is best. Here are our top picks of what to look for in campsite. Whether it’s for just for a couple of nights or a whole week visit to find your perfect spot.

In the Forest 

There’s simply nothing more enchanting than camping within the peace and quiet of a woodland setting. Kids will love exploring the forest. And parents will love escaping the hustle and bustle of modern life.

With a play area

Having a play area on site is a great idea if you’re camping with younger children. Some sites have adventure playgrounds, trampolines or even outdoor chess and swimming pools. Perfect for keeping children entertained and also meeting other little campers.

Beside the sea

Combine beach and camping by picking a campsite near the coast. Days can be spent on the beach and evenings looking out to sea.

Next to water

For pure relaxation and exhilaration for those into water sports what better than a campsite that is right next to water; be it a lake, loch or river. Great fun for older children (and adults who love mucking around on boats) for Swallows and Amazon style adventures.

Go Glamping!

If you haven’t got a tent or even if you have but want the luxury of not having to load up the car and put a tent up, then try glamping. Real beds, a relaxing sofa and proper cooking facilities are what you’ll get. Plus the great outdoors just on your doorstep…

Cool ways to coverup at the beach

A good beach coverup is worth its weight in gold when it comes to baring your body on the beach. Invest in a couple of pieces to throw on over your bikini or swimsuit and they will see you from the beach to lunch and then on to the bar for a sundowner. We’ve scoured the shops for our top picks of this summer’s beach coverups from simple sarongs and kaftans to more elaborate dresses and jumpsuits. Happy shopping!

The Sarong

A sarong is such a versatile piece to have in your holiday wardrobe. Wear around your waist to coverup at the beach bar, turn into a simple dress by tying around your neck or even use as a coverup from the sun.
