When it is time to go on holiday many people instinctively look at deals on hotel breaks. This has been a popular way of spending time away from home for a very long time. It can be a wonderful way to take a holiday but there is an approach which is even better than this. Here are 5 good reasons to ditch the hotel and stay in a camping site instead.
Get in Touch with Nature
If you stay in a hotel then you need to make a conscious effort to get in touch with nature and enjoy a grounded, environmentally friendly and authentic feeling holiday. However, when you stay on a campsite you are surrounded by nature and will enjoy a green break without even making too much effort. This is regarded as one of the reasons why camping has overtaken B&B stays in the UK and there is no doubt that it is an important benefit for many holidaymakers.
Spend More Quality Time with the Family
Another interesting advantage to staying in a campsite is that you will have the chance to spend more quality time with your family. Instead of staying in separate rooms and not having a lot of time together you can make the most of this family break and enjoy each other’s company. The fact that there is a wide variety of things to do means that you can do a little bit of what each person wants and keep everyone happy.
Enjoy Cool Gadgets
One of the most exciting reasons for going camping is to use some of the cool camping gadgets which are now available. With this type of trip now being more popular than ever you will find great options like solar powered chargers, wind up radios, smartphone apps, mobile kitchens and multi purposes lantern radios. If you love gadgets then taking a few of these away with you will give you a more pleasant trip then sitting in a hotel room and watching TV programs you don’t even really understand.
Great Facilities but Less Money
You might think that the issue of facilities is the one area in which camping comes in a sad and rather distant second to a stay in hotel. If you think this then you haven’t been to one of the top campsites lately. These days you will find swimming pools, shops, sporting facilities, kid clubs and even quality spa treatments online.
Best of all, despite all of these useful facilities it still tends to work out a lot cheaper to go camping than to book your accommodation in a hotel. This is one of the big reasons why so many people now choose to take their holiday in this way. Even if you need to buy some camping gear and gadgets you will find that this is pretty cheap to do these days.
One of the great things about going camping is that you can explore more of the region you are staying in. If you sometimes come home complaining about not having seen enough of the place you have just been in then can be a great solution. Going camping can be a fine way to enjoy a more active break in which you do more and see more of the place.
