Here are some ideas of how to get back to nature this Easter:

Explore National Parks:

From the rugged landscapes of the Lake District to the stunning coastline of Pembrokeshire, the UK is home to 15 national parks, each offering its own unique landscape. Lace up your hiking boots, pack your backpack and set out to explore scenic trails, majestic mountains, and picturesque lakes.

Crafted from durable waterproof materials and equipped with adjustable back support and compression straps, it ensures you can embark on your journey fully equipped.

Discover Coastal Walks:

With over 7,700 miles of coastline, the UK boasts some of the most breath taking coastal walks in the world. Head to the Jurassic Coast in Dorset to marvel at towering cliffs and fossil-studded beaches or explore the windswept beauty of the Northumberland coast. Whether you're searching for hidden coves, dramatic sea stacks, or bustling seaside towns, there's something for everyone to discover along the UK's stunning coastline. Elevate your coastal exploration with our 32L Daysack! Designed for coastal walks, it offers ample storage space for essentials like snacks, water and suncream. With its comfortable straps and lightweight design, it's the perfect companion for a day of adventure along the coast, ensuring you're prepared and comfortable every step of the way.

Whether you prefer pitching your tent in a remote wilderness or setting up camp in a family-friendly campground, there are countless options to choose from across the UK. Spend your days hiking, biking, and exploring the great outdoors, then relax by the campfire under the starlit sky. Shop from our variety of tents and camping accessories to really take your camp setup to the next level:

From the formal elegance of Sissinghurst Castle Garden to the wild beauty of Cragside in Morpeth, there are sites to suit every taste and preference.

If you decide to make a weekend of it and get away in your camper, we’d recommend our Cali Breeze® Campervan Awning to make your setup feel like a home away from home.
