Your great stays
Last year we shared our staff’s top five campsite choices, and you all absolutely loved it. So, we thought we’d do another but this time reached out to you, our SUGOI customers, to share all of the spots across the country that you had the best camping experience at. What better way to decide where to take your new campervan first?!
1 – Beauly Holiday Park, Invernesshire
Just north of Inverness, our customer Derek discovered this gem. The park boasts 75 pitches, including hard standing. There’s also a children’s play area, BBQ spot, six-acre nature reserve and a brand new toilet block (installed in 2022). Parents, you’ll be glad to hear there’s also an onsite bar, with regular entertainment.
Set in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, you’ll also have excellent access to the North Coast 500 route.
Not a camper? Don’t worry, they also have glamping options, including a bell tent.
Find out more or book your stay at beaulyholidaypark.scot.
2 – Golden Cap Holiday Park, Seatown
Wow, so many people recommended this one! Including one of our own staff members.
This unique campsite is set on the side of the Golden Cap cliffs, on a track that leads right down to the beach. It’s also within one of the UK’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty spots. With a pub on your doorstep, and a small camping shop, you’ll have the basics covered. But it’s only a short drive to nearby towns if you’re craving some fish and chips.
With all types of pitches, including camping, glamping and lodges, there’s something for everyone. So a great option for larger groups holidaying together. There’s a fishing lake on the park, children’s play area and regular takeaway vans.
The park has won a host of awards, including Silver for Holiday Park of the Year 2021/22, Silver for Dorset Holiday Park of the Year 2021/22, AA 5 Pennants Award, Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence – Travelers’ Choice 2021 and the David Bellamy Conservation Award 2022.
But spaces book up quickly (we can see why)! So if this sounds like your cup of tea, hop on over to wdlh.co.uk/holiday-parks/golden-cap to book your stay.
3 – Bryn Gloch Caravan Site & Camping Park, Snowdonia
Huge thanks to Sarah and Jude for this recommendation. If you’re headed to Wales, they reckon this is just the ticket.
Set at the foot of Mount Snowdonia, you’re not going to get views better than this. You’ll have unrivalled access to the Snowdonia National Park, and a choice of pitches, many with their own scenic views.
As far as facilities go, Bryn Gloch has you covered. Take advantage to heated bathrooms (including baths for hire), fishing spots, a laundry room, a games room, children’s play areas, Freeview TV, bike hire and a park shop.
Travelling with non-campers? Bryn Gloch also offers shepherd huts and static caravans for hire, as well as a 10-bed bunkhouse.

4 – Red Shoot Camping Park, Linwood
This one was submitted by our customer Terry. A bit more local to the SUGOI HQ, Red Shoot is set in near Ringwood, in the New Forest National Park.
This family-friendly campsite offers a range of facilities, including a shop and bakery, electric vehicle charging points, children’s play area, laundry room and under-floor heated shower blocks.
A great opportunity to escape to nature, this park is best for families and couples, rather than big groups or parties. But, it is dog friendly!
And for those looking for a little luxury, there’s a wonderful holiday cottage available for hire. With two bedrooms, parking and a garden, it’s an ideal stay. There are also two river keeper’s huts, build by local craftsmen.
Another award winner, Red Shoot was hailed a winner of the Tripadvisor Award for Excellence eight years in a row!

5 – John O’Groats Caravan and Camping Site, John O’Groats
And finally, finishing with another stay in Scotland. This one was another submission by Derek, who has stayed in the area many times but this was his favourite site.
Now a popular hub for those walking from Lands End in Cornwall to John O’Groats, the location has become somewhat iconic. But this site gives you the very best of the area, with panoramic views of Peatland Firth (including the popular puffins), the Island of Stroma, and the Orkney Islands.
Facilities here include shower blocks, laundrette facilities, limited hard standing pitches and WiFi. There are 90 pitches to choose from, so you’ll be able to pick your ideal spot.

So, that’s it for now! We hope this gives you a good selection of sites to choose from, all across the UK. Please continue to submit your entries, and share photos of your adventures with us. We love seeing the campervans out and about.
