Ok, so the kids are back to school and technically the summer is over, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to take some time away in your touring caravan or motorhome. In fact, it’s a great time to get away.
Here are just a few reasons why you should take a touring break this month.
The weather’s still good
Admittedly, it might not be quite the weather for sunbathing, but generally, the weather in September is still warm(ish) and there are still plenty of hours of sunshine to enjoy being outdoors. Just be sure to bring a couple of extra blankets for the cooler evenings so you can spend as much time as possible around the campfire.
Its less busy and more affordable
During the school holidays in July and August, rates are higher, but September is usually out of high season, meaning you’ll be able to get a great pitch for a lower price. As it’s out of peak season, it’s also quieter, so you won’t find yourself having to wait to use the shower or washing up facilities.
Dark skies and camp fires
Whilst camping in the height of summer has its benefits, it can prove tricky for parents of younger children with the long daylight hours. Kids tend to wake when it gets light (which can be before 5am in July and August!), meaning early starts and long days.
In September, it gets darker earlier, and younger children can enjoy some of the most quintessential camping experiences that they might have missed out on earlier in the summer. From sipping hot chocolates and toasting marshmallows around a campfire as the sun sets, to taking in the wonder of the night sky, it can be a truly magical experience.
September is a great time of year to explore the outdoors. Not only is the landscape changing from green to gold, but the weather is slightly cooler, making activities like cycling or walking more comfortable than in the more intense heat of summer.
Autumn is a great time to hone your photography skills, with the changing seasons providing some great opportunities for landscape photography. You could even try your hand at some time lapse photography of the night sky from our countryside parks.
