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
