Beach Holidays With Your Caravan In Tow

With the sun out and the temperature rising, it is now no better a time to hook up the caravan and head off to the coast. Living in a caravan is a great way to enjoy the summer sun in the UK and even better is by going on a coastal camping and caravanning holiday. From Scotland with its stunning rugged coastline to the gorgeous beaches of Wales to the rolling hills and fantastic sea views of Devon, a caravan holiday is a must to cement those memories of a lifetime for all the family.
