Motorhoming in the Autumn

When people think of taking a holdiay in the UK, they imagine the seaside with it's ice-cream, or visiting a water park to cool down. 

Have you considered booking a campsite in autumn could have many advantages? first of all, the schools go back at the start of September, this means that the campsites located around the UK are less likely to be fully booked, so it's an ideal time to visit some great lcoations without the bustle of the busy peak season.

Additionally the prices for campsite are reduced the further out of peak season it is, so you will be able to stay a bit longer, or book somewhere else and have two trips for the same type of price you would pay for just one trip in the middle of August.

Autum is an ideal time to visit some of the UK's best walks, when the leaves start to change colour it can be magical, with the bonus it can still be quite warm during the day. If you are also in to photography the Autumn light can create some fantastic warm shots, portraits can have a glow and the sunsets are stunning. 

If you choose to stay in an area with low light polution autumn evenings are crisp and the skies are clear and its a great opportunity to see the stars and planets, there are some great apps for your phone to help you identify stars and planets. Google Sky Map Android App

Swift 664 Handover

Tanya, Simon and family from Cliffsend, are pictured taking delivery of their first family motorhome, a Swift 664 Lifestyle Special Edition.

As local business owners, getting a holiday, or just a short break can be difficult at times.

However with the motorhome, long weekends and maybe occasionally a longer break are suddenly possible, and in a changing world where travel can now be very difficult, Tanya and Simon believe that the Motorhome gives them the independence and flexibility that they need for themselves and their family.

Swift BOLERO 684 Handover

Annette and Mark from Sholden are pictured taking delivery of their first motorhome, the impressive Swift BOLERO 684 FB AUTO.

Whilst both Mark and Annette are very busy with work commitments, the opportunity the Motorhome will provide, to grab regular weekends and the occasional week or two away.

Will be a huge boost, and one that the whole family (from time to time) will be sharing, even a new Grandchild when it arrives later this year!

Congratulations to you all from TC Motorhomes.

We hope that you all have a great deal of fun with your Swift Bolero.

Yet another great review from another happy customer!

We had been looking at new motorhomes when we spotted one of interest to us with the layout we were looking for during lockdown on TC Motorhomes website . Made contact with Shane who was and has been most helpful and professional throughout the whole process. We paid a holding deposit and agreed a price for our trade-in motorhome (all subject to viewing when permitted) and also a superb price for additional items we required (wind-out awning, solar panel, bike rack, etc.) all of which were fitted to a high/professional standard. When lock-down rules permitted, we were able to view/test drive and agree the purchase and date to finalize trade-in and collection of our new motorhome. The whole process was an enjoyable worry free experience with TC Motorhomes. A big thank you to Shane, and Peter who went through everything with us on the new motorhome on day of collection. Would I go to TC Motorhomes again or recommend them? Yes I most definitely would.

New Testimonial

Thank-you to Patricia for such a lovely review, we have passed your comments on to Peter.

"Just purchased my very first motorhome. What a fantastic experience with T C Motorhomes. I want to say thank you to all the staff but the biggest thank you particularly to our salesman Pete. I purchased the motorhome primarily as my daughter is very poorly and he went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. He was kind and courteous and very sympathetic to our needs. Most of all he always put a smile on our faces. Thank you so much Pete. I cannot recommend T C Motorhomes enough and they are most definitely the place to go. Professional but caring."
