Travel Bucket List – Destinations released in December

December 23, 2016

Following the launch of our ‘Bucket List’ of locations to visit whilst on your motorhome travels, here are the destinations we have selected for December:

Destination number 22: Quantock Hills, Somerset. England’s first Area of Outstanding Beauty offers an abundance of activities and attractions for the whole family set across open hilltops, beautiful Jurassic Coastline, attractive villages and ancient oak combes. Kilve Beach is great for fossil hunting, the Coleridge Way provides stunning walks where you might see wild ponies and deer and a walk through Great Wood Forest will have you trekking over rock from Quantock’s extinct volcano. Other highlights to visit include Halsway Manor, the wild gardens at Fyne Court and Coleridge’s Cottage. Local legend declares that when you are on the Quantocks, you are never more than 1.7 miles away from a pub so there are plenty of places to eat and drink serving homemade food from local produce. Moorhouse Farm and Campsite offers a good place to park your motorhome, located between the Quantock Hills and the Jurassic Coast and is a quiet, rural, family-run site.

Destination number 23: Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire. This stunning area is one of the surviving ancient forests in England and makes for a great family holiday destination. There are excellent cycle tracks, kayaking, zip-wires and beautiful walks. Puzzlewood is well worth a visit – it covers 14 acres with many walking paths, unusual rock formations, secret caves, ancient trees and is said to have given JRR Tolkien his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth. Other highlights include climbing to the battlements of the 12th Century Goodrich Castle, trying to navigate your way through the Amazing Hedge Puzzle, riding a steam train along the heritage railway and taking in the imposing architecture of Glocester Cathedral. Bracelands Campsite is located within the Forest of Dean surrounded by stunning landscape and has a range of on-site facilities for you to use during your motorhome stay in the Forest.
