With summer slowly but surely drawing to a close, but for avid campers – and even those who just need a summer break – camping trips are still an option to make the most of the light nights. Here are Heat Holders’ favourite destinations for a late-summer escape in the UK…


Home to beautifully scenic coastal walks, ferry trips and fishing opportunities, Cornwall has plenty to offer for a camping weekend. The area boasts approximately 150 campsites – including venues which are dog-friendly, suitable for tents or campervans and accessible campsites for those who need them. Attractions include a range of arcades, museums and nature walks, as well as the iconic Eden Project, Flambards Theme Park and an abundance of zoos and wildlife reserves, leaving you with plenty of activities to enjoy during your stay.


Tucked into the south of Wales, Pembrokeshire is home to Pembrokeshire Coast National Park, Folly Farm Adventure Park and a plethora of castles, historical buildings and places with stories of their own to explore. With more than 200 campsites in the county, you are guaranteed to find one that suits all of your family’s needs.

Dumfries and Galloway

Explore Scotland’s lowlands and get a taste of the Scottish life with a short camping break in Dumfries and Galloway. The area is home to 15 sites, welcoming tents, caravans and campers alike and offering costal views and activities at every stop. With Galloway Forest Park claiming most of the county’s space, the area offers plenty of green spaces and opportunities to stretch your legs and explore something new during your stay.

Weather forecasts until the end of September still offer more than a ray of hope for sunny days, with temperatures across the UK averaging between 15 and 20 degrees. But, as we all know, the Great British weather can be unpredictable, so it is best to pack the essentials for all temperatures– so, don’t forget your Heat Holders thermal wear for those colder nights and days spent exploring these fair isles.
