Its of course an odd time to be planning activities, but we also have to start the economy again. As long as everyone is being sensible and safe, it will slowly improve. Families still want to go on trips and camping is a perfect solution. There are still so many campsites open, some all year round. Once you have the spot booked, what's next. There's many different events still on and also just things you can do for free to entertain the kiddies. So whether your away with the children or just as a couple, or even with your furry friend, you can still have a great time campervanning in the colder months in the UK.
1 > Our glorious AONB's (area of outstanding natural beauty) are all around the UK. Just exploring them and visiting, seeing the breathe taking scenery is enough for some. No matter where you are travelling to, there won't be one too far. There is normally so much land to cover that it wouldn't be possible to explore in a 1 day trip. Make sure you have your muddy hiking boots ready and take it all in your stride.
2 > Pumpkin patches are starting to take off in the UK and there are lots of places to visit. Undley Farm (Suffolk), Foxes Farm (Essex), Stanhill Farm (Kent), Cotswold Farm Park (Gloucestershire), Pink Pig Farm (Lincolnshire), Adventure Valley (Durham). And so many more over the UK. Most have rides, animals, farm shops on site. Lots are advising reduced numbers and require you to book. Of course check each individual pumpkin patch for further details and their rules in place for social distancing.
3 > Campfires, toasting marshmallows and making s'mores. An old classic and even more cosy in the colder weather months. Perfect for bonding and having a great social around a warm fire. Also who doesn't love to eat sweet things. All you need is a friend that plays the guitar and your complete for the ultimate traditional camping experience.
4 > A seaside trip. Maybe not to have an ice cream, but visiting a seaside can been fun when its a little chilly. Having those warm fish and chips, watching the sea and enjoying a walk along the front, it can be quite peaceful from the summer madness. You can appreciate the beauty of a seaside when there aren't many tourists.
5 > Find a waterfall. They are pretty spectacular but in the autumnal months, they can look even more magical. All the rich colours surrounding them really set the scene. It's not maybe something you would think of, but they are all around and of course free to visit. With us being in the current climate that we are, it's the perfect option for staying outside.

I'm sure there are so more many things that you can do, but here are just a few to get those juices flowing and get creative with your trip.
