Making The Most Of Your Easter Motorhome Holiday


It’s getting close to the Easter holidays, a time when many families head off in their motorhomes in hope of a little sunshine. Easter holidays can be a great time to take a trip, the weather is mild, but not too hot, so exploring the outdoors is a must. Sites aren’t as busy as in the summertime, and some sites may even plan Easter activities for the kids!

Whether you’re heading off on a mini-break this Easter, or you’re waiting until school’s back before setting off, these tips and tricks will ensure you make the most of your upcoming trip. 

1. What should I pack for a motorhome holiday?

Consider packing all of the usual essentials you’ll need for a camping trip away. This includes items such as clothing appropriate for varying weather conditions, food supplies, cooking utensils, bedding, toiletries, first aid kit, entertainment items and outdoor gear. Don’t forget to pack any specific items related to your destination or planned activities.


2. Do I need to book camp sites in advance for Easter holidays?

We would highly recommend booking motorhome sites in advance, particularly when you’re travelling during peak holiday seasons like Easter. Popular sites, especially those by the coast and popular landmarks, can fill up quickly, so securing your spot early ensures you have a place to stay.

3. Are there any special events or activities during Easter?

Many motorhome parks and camping sites organise Easter-themed events and activities such as egg hunts, themed dinners, or family-friendly entertainment. Check with your chosen site to see if they’re running any events, or look for  events in the local area like farmer’s markets, food festivals and nature trails. You could even do your own Easter events at camp, like egg painting or making decorations for your motorhome.


4. What should I do if I encounter bad weather during my motorhome holiday?

Sunshine is not always guaranteed on UK holidays, but being prepared for all weather conditions means you can still enjoy your break! Be prepared for adverse weather conditions by packing appropriate clothing (we’d recommend a raincoat!), equipment, and supplies. Exploring the great outdoors in all weathers can be fun, but if it does affect your plans, have a back-up for indoor activities or nearby attractions to visit.

5. How can I ensure safety while driving in my motorhome?

Before setting off, you should always ensure your motorhome is roadworthy and properly secured. Check the weather and road conditions along your route, and drive cautiously, especially if you’re new to driving a motorhome. Make regular stops for rest if you’re driving for a long period of time.


6. What are some Easter-themed recipes or meals I can prepare while on a motorhome holiday?

Consider simple yet festive recipes that are easy to prepare in a motorhome kitchen, such as hot cross buns, Easter lamb casserole, or chocolate-themed desserts. Plan your meals in advance and pack ingredients accordingly, as you may not be in close proximity to a fully-stocked shop.

7. Can I bring my pet along on a motorhome holiday?

Before bringing your pet along with you, check with the motorhome site or campground regarding their pet policy. Ensure your pet is well-behaved, up to date on vaccinations, and be considerate of other campers. Make sure to clean up after your pet and keep them under control at all times.

8. What are some recommended destinations for a motorhome holiday?

Popular destinations for motorhome holidays include coastal areas, national parks, lakeside campgrounds, or rural retreats. Consider what your interests are and the sort of activities you’ll be planning, and align these with your chosen destination. If you like walking and hiking, a national park such as the Brecon Beacons or Dartmoor are beautiful places to visit. If you’re thinking of doing activities like visiting the cinema, watching a theatre performance, or going to a theme park, ensuring you’re near a city or well-populated area will be more important.

9. How can I make the most of my motorhome holiday experience?

If you plan ahead, you can make sure you’re prepared and have your route and activities in place. Leave room for spontaneity and relaxation, so you get the chance to visit places you see along the way, whilst also having some time to chill out. Embrace the outdoors and nature, engage with fellow campers and families at the sites you visit, and take advantage of the unique opportunities for adventure and exploration that motorhome holidays provide.

10. What should I do to prepare my motorhome for storage after the Easter holiday?

Clean and organise your motorhome, remove perishable food items you’ve stored throughout your holiday, and ensure all appliances and systems are turned off. Check for any damage or wear and tear that may need attention before your next trip, and get a service booked in if you find anything that needs checking. If you have a cover, use it to protect your motorhome until your next trip, or store your motorhome securely to protect it from the elements.
