The springtime is a great time of year for camping and we love getting out in the fresh air when the spring flowers are out and the weather starts to warm up. Winter was slow to leave us this year so spring was off to a bit of a slow start – and then it was, briefly, summer! If you weren’t lucky enough to have taken advantage of the recent hot weather and are planning a camping trip over the coming Early May Bank holiday - have a look at our top tips below for getting your camp on this Spring.

(including our own) are open throughout the year – so why not make more use of
your caravan or motorhome through the winter season.

Somerset is a beautiful county to visit all year round, but the Autumn is a particularly lovely time of year here. So, if you fancy a last, late-season camp over half term, have a look at our suggestions for more things to do whilst you are here.
It’s easy to think that summer is over and pack
the camping gear away once the kids go back to school and the nights start to
draw in but, September is still a great month for camping...

One of the
nice things about being holed up over winter is thinking about what you are
going to do once the better weather comes and planning your first camping trip
of the season.
Early spring is the perfect time to book a Glamping break in Somerset. After the madness of Christmas and as the days start to get a bit longer the first snowdrops, the ‘harbingers of Spring’ start to appear, and we all start to think about getting out and about a bit more. For all but the most intrepid of us though, a camping break in a tent at this time of year is not so appealing!

mean that you are ready to hit the road again when the better weather comes in the

There are a
number of factors to consider when you are choosing a storage location for your
caravan or motorhome. The basic choice
comes down to whether you are going to store at home or at secure storage

Here at Southfork Caravan Park Near Yeovil in Somerset we have a fully equipped, AWS approved workshop and offer a comprehensive servicing and cleaning for your caravan or motorhome.

the pressure of modern life and it’s ‘always-on’ mentality. Spending some time away from technology
allows you the time to recharge your batteries and enjoy being out of contact
for a while. Free from the usual chores
of day to day life, camping breaks can be great thinking time and enable you to
spend quality time with friends and family...
