Top tips to make your stay the best it can be
To make your journey and visit as enjoyable and smooth sailing as possible, we’ve pulled together a list of top tips to help you along your way….
Driving on country and single-track roads
- If your motorhome is more than a standard 16ft long, plan your route carefully and avoid single track or country roads.
- If you find reversing your vehicle challenging then these smaller, single track road really aren’t for you and you should consider an alternative route.
- If you are travelling below the speed limit, please pull into a layby or passing place to allow traffic to safely pass you.
- Avoid travel in convoy groups as this can lead to congestion.
When you’ve reached your location
- Determine whether the spot you’ve found is right for you and your vehicle.
- Be aware of local habitat and don’t drive down to beaches or onto grass verges.
- Keep your distance and avoid parking too close to other vehicles.
- Use only biodegradable detergents and remove kitchen waste and water tanks – follow the rules of the campsite.
- Utilise self-contained toilet facilities.
- Remove any litter and unwanted items and dispose of them correctly
- Buy local where you can
- Don’t Light BBQs or fires unless authorised by the campsite/landowner.
Many of these points may seem obvious but can quite easily be overlooked. Following simple guidelines will help make your stay so much more enjoyable and ultimately easier and pleasanter for you and those around you.
