As the nights draw in and the air gets colder, it’s nice to look forward to using your motorhome to get up and down the country to enjoy what weekends we have left before it gets all too cold. With Bonfire night coming up this weekend Priory Rentals has decided to put together a few suggestions for you to travel too and enjoy the fireworks.
Gateway Holiday Park – Wales
This site offers a hard-standing pitch with electric hook-up for just £20 per night. That fee includes entry to the Bonfire Night Party and Fireworks display which is a great deal. The Fireworks start at 6.30pm and then the fun really begins; alongside the fireworks, Gateway Holiday Park offers live music, sparklers, hog roast, toffee apples and candy floss. Aside from the fantastic evening’s offerings, the site also offers an indoor swimming pool and mini golf.
Golden Caravan Park – Derbyshire
Golden Caravan and Camping Park has a long list of great attractions on top of their fantastic fireworks night. The Derbyshire based site boasts a zip line, train, log fume rides, quad bike experiences, a bouncy castle and fishing. In fact, there is a large carp fishing pond as well as four outdoor children’s play areas. The fireworks display itself starts at 8.30pm and prices for the weekend start at £30 a night. Why not visit Alton Towers the following day? It’s under an hours’ drive and will help to maintain the family excitement after a fantastic time the night before.
Lower Lacon Caravan Park – Shropshire
This lovely site has 52 acres of land, 230 electric points, two separate toilet and shower blocks, two laundry rooms and a heated outdoor swimming pool. As well a fantastic array of modern amenities, Lower Lacon Caravan Park also has an incredibly interesting history. Starting as part of an American Army Base, the whole site has a very hard surface due to the hard core, filled 3 ft deep beneath the surface. This means pitching tents can often be hard whereas it is absolutely ideal for motorhomes as the weather rarely ever effects the surface. On the night itself the bonfire begins at 6.30pm and the fireworks follow at 8pm.
Longleat Caravan Club Site
This Warminster site is extremely unique. With the area’s famous Safari Park (the first to be opened outside of Africa!) just on the doorstep you can quite literally hear lions roaring from the comfort of your motorhome… now that is being at one with nature! The fireworks event itself is held on multiple nights: the last weekend of October and the first of November. Therefore if you fancy a wonderfully bizarre concoction of big cats and fireworks then this is the place for you!
So wrap up warm and get ready to have your jaw dropping to the floor as you witness some of the best fireworks the UK has to offer. The experience will be even better knowing you have a wonderful campsite to return to with your motorhome safe and sound waiting for your return.
This year marks the 412th anniversary of Guy Fawkes failed ‘Gun Powder Plot’ to blow up the House of Lords. Will you be one of the estimated 25 million people that head out to watch a fireworks display each year to remember this event?
If you heading out in your motorhome this weekend to enjoy the fireworks then this is a much safer option than doing a firework display yourself. Over a thousand people each year are injured by fireworks. So with this in mind, it’s always much safer attending a public display than doing your own. You never need an excuse to go anywhere in your motorhome but if you did need one then Bonfire night is a great excuse to use.
