With this in mind, we’re going to share with you our top three holiday destinations in the United Kingdom. So, when it comes to planning your next trip away, you won’t be stuck for inspiration.
Land of dragons and giants, North Wales, is steeped in myth and folklore. Surrounded by the rugged cliffs, it’s not hard to imagine such legendary figures roaming the landscape. It’s a good choice if you plan on taking the kids with you. They’ll love all the stories and Arthurian legends, and there’s plenty to excite and fire up their imaginations. If you’re feeling energetic, you can climb the majestic Mount Snowdon, or if you’d rather take the scenic route, you can ride the train up instead.
Many people choose to rent a motorhome so they can explore the area as much as possible. You can rent or even buy a motorhome at a quite affordable price.

But if you’re the owner, it’s your responsibility to check that you’re properly covered. There are lots of useful websites that show you how to compare motorhome insurance quotes. So, just do a few sums before you go to get an idea of how much the holiday will set you back.
