Site Spotlight – Overnight on the water’s edge

The sight and sound of water, even that coming from the sky (overnight only of course!) creates a perfect location for a GlamperRV stopover hence the focus of this weeks site spotlight – overnight on the water’s edge.

As always our recommendations will give you just a taste of what is available and if you want to find more then can I suggest you do an advanced search on Search for Sites selecting the option ‘at a marina or harbour’.

We start our site spotlight – overnight at the water’s edge in Herefordshire at Lucksall Caravan and Camping site. A beautifully manicured campsite located on the River Wye where you can choose a pitch overlooking the river and enjoy sightings of Kingfisher right in front of your GlamperRV.  The site has fantastic facilities complete with onsite café and plenty of walking trails directly into nearby woods.  There is also a bus stop right outside from where you can take a bus into Hereford with its quirky cafes, shops and stunning cathedral.

If you enjoy the sight of boats then you will love the many marinas around the country that offer overnight motorhome parking.  One of the most rural we have visited is Bridgemarsh Marina in Essex which offers a very rustic overnight spot in a private parking area overlooking the River Crouch with views of sailing boats and river life.  It is a short walk into the pretty town of Burnham on Crouch and many other stunning walks around this windswept, beautiful landscape.

At the other end of the spectrum, if you fancy combining your GlamperRV marina stopover with a City visit, then the Liverpool Marina is a stop to consider.  Overnight parking is available at the Liverpool Yacht Club which is very close to Albert docks and Liverpool city centre. There is a charge of £35 but you get a £10 voucher to spend in the bar/restaurant and access to all the yacht club facilities including launderette, showers, toilets, Elsan and grey waste disposal and fresh water.

If your idea of overnighting at the waters edge is to hear the crash or lap of waves then the more rural you venture the more likely you are to find that idyllic, remote overnight spot.  If your travel plans include exploring the Scottish Isles then you will be spoilt for choice.  If however you are planning a trip in the South West then be prepared to stay in a more structured campsite if you dream of sea views.

Some of our favourite overnight by the water’s edge locations include:

The Barn at Beal (Northumberland),
Trewethett Farm Camping (Cornwall – pictured above)
Martleaves Farm (Dorset).
