Custom Design Campervans

At Custom Design Campervans, we’re excited to guide you through a journey that encompasses the magic of spring travel in your custom campervan! Here are our top tips on a spring full of happy memories in your camper…

Choose Your Springtime Wonderland:

Spring in the UK offers an array of destinations bursting with life. Fancy a beach destination? Consider the charming coastal drives along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset. A Hiker? Retreat to the stunning mountainous landscapes of Snowdonia in Wales, or explore the picturesque Lake District.

Pack Light, Pack Right:

With milder temperatures through spring… we hope! Opt for breathable layers, and don’t forget the sunscreen. Include versatile clothing suitable for both cool evenings and warm afternoons. A fleece is a must!

Tip: Check the weather forecast for your chosen destinations and pack accordingly. Include hiking boots and rain gear for unexpected showers.

Chase Wildflower Blooms:

The UK’s countryside is known for its vibrant blooms during spring. Plan your journey around regions renowned for their wildflower displays. Our personal favourite is to head to the Bluebell Woods in Surrey or explore the Rhossili Bay area in Wales for breath-taking floral views.

Tip: Research peak bloom times for specific wildflowers to maximize your floral experience.

Outdoor Cooking:

Spring is the perfect time for outdoor cooking. Equip your campervan with a portable grill and experience dining al fresco surrounded by the beauty of nature. Try simple and delicious recipes like a classic British barbecue with locally sourced ingredients.

Tip: Visit local markets to gather fresh produce and regional specialties for an authentic culinary adventure + you get to support local businesses!

Campground Reservations:

While spontaneity is part of the adventure, securing campground reservations in popular destinations ensures a stress-free journey. Plan your overnight stays in advance, to avoid missing out on top spots! Consider sites like the Lake District’s scenic campgrounds or the seaside spots along the Cornish coast.

Tip: Book sites with essential amenities and stunning views to enhance your camping experience.

Spring Cleaning for Your Campervan:

To make your trip seamless and stress free, give your campervan a thorough spring cleaning. Check and maintain your vehicle’s systems to ensure everything is in top-notch condition for the upcoming adventures. Create a checklist for cleaning, organising, and inspecting the essentials.

Tip: Check the condition of your tires, fluid levels, and ensure your heating system is working efficiently – let us know if you need any help / questions!

Hike, Bike, and Explore:

Seize the pleasant weather to engage in outdoor activities. Explore hiking trails, bring along bikes for scenic rides, and fully immerse yourself in the beauty of spring. Discover the charm of the West Highland Way in Scotland or the trails around the Peak District.

Tip: Research local trails and landmarks to plan your outdoor activities in each destination.

Spring is our favourite time for travel… stunning blooms and mild weather is the best time to explore and take advantage of brighter days! At Custom Design Campervans, we’re committed to providing the perfect companion for your UK springtime explorations. So, fuel up, hit the road, and let the spirit of spring guide you to the most unforgettable destinations.

Happy travels!
