Father's Day hits the United Kingdom on Sunday 28th June, with men up and down the country celebrated by their little ones as we join together to raise a toast to the men who shape our lives.

June is the perfect time of year to treat your dad to a short camping weekend away or a longer break in a relaxing caravan holiday home! With so much beauty in all corners on the UK you’ll find a wealth of beautiful places to visit to spend some precious time together as a family. Here's our pick of great activities and destinations to visit to help make this Father’s Day one to remember.

Take a break in a National Park…

 If your dad craves a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, let him do it in style with a weekend stay in, or near, one of the UK's stunning national parks.

 There's a huge variety of campsites on offer all across the country, ranging from extravagant glamping pods to quaint grass pitches. Whether he wants to discover the Royal Forest of Dean, absorb the stunning scenery of Snowdonia, blow off the cobwebs in Brighton's fresh sea air or explore the 640 acres of rolling hills overlooking the historical city of Edinburgh from the rocky summit of Arthur’s Seat’s; you'll win some serious brownie points for this thoughtful gift.

Places to stay near National Parks:

Coed-y-Llwyn Club Site

Brighton Club Site

Bracelands Caravan and Camping Site



Go Fishing

 For the fathers who enjoy a spot of angling, treat them to a fishing weekend away. Brilliant water, beautiful scenery, the thrill of the chase - it's easy to get hooked on a fishing holiday in the UK. The sport is so popular that many campsites in the UK have introduced fishing lakes as a feature attraction. For those of you who think their Dad would prefer a more rustic fishing holiday, plan a trip to Fife. A glorious and historic fishing village on Scotland’s east coast, Dad’s will be spoilt for choice with an abundance of fantastic beaches and fishing cruises. Whilst you’re there why not book a beer or gin tour at Eden Mill, stroll along Fife’s Coastal Path – Scotland’s longest continuous coastal walk or visit the ancient chapel of Dunfermline where you can walk in the footsteps of Kings. There are so many activities available in Fife that it is a great base for a Father’s Day adventure.
