Though we hate to say it, the summer’s over. But there’s no need to feel down about it; there are several reasons to celebrate the arrival of autumn. As the leaves begin to fall and the mornings become crisp and fresh, it’s time to think about your autumn motorhome getaway. Now that the school holiday is finished, the roads and campsites are clearer and September is the start of Motorhome Holiday Company’s mid season, which is when our rates lower. That means you can enjoy your autumn motorhome holiday at a happy, low price.
We’ve made motorhome rental so simple that the only challenge you’ll face is deciding where to go. Although, we’re here to help with that as well! We’ve brought together a few ideas, from things to do and places to go, to inspire your Autumn getaway.
Explore the depths of Scotland
With all the tourists tied to going away during school holidays back at home, Scotland is one of our top choices for an autumn holiday. You might have already guessed how much we love a Scottish escape by reading our Scotland top 10 places to visit and the literary inspired road-trip. Two of our customers embarked on. The lochs are calm and midge free in September and if mountain walking is your thing, you could consider hiking a Munro or two. With 282 Munros to choose from, we’re pretty confident you’ll find a peak that is both challenging and peaceful to suit your mood.
Spend your evenings under the stars
Autumn is an ideal season for astronomy. September and October are still warm enough to sit under the stars long into the night, and with a motorhome, you can drive deep into the wilds of Dartmoor or Exmoor to avoid light pollution spoiling your view of the Milky Way’s 200 billion stars.
If you like stargazing of a different kind, the autumn is a popular season with production companies shooting films and TV series for broadcast in the coming spring and summer. It’s no secret that many hit shows (hint: Poldark) are shot in Cornwall, which gives you yet another reason to enjoy an autumn holiday road-trip through those winding lanes to revisit where Aidan and the cast spent those long months filming. And we know our motorhomes are happy coasting around the Cornish lanes because, once again, we delightedly supplied motorhomes for Poldark, both as greenrooms for the stars and long term accommodation for the crew who couldn’t face the long commute back and forth from London.
Festivals aren’t all about the music
Whilst the summer music festivals have passed, there is still plenty of festival fun to experience through the autumn. October welcomes the annual, world-renowned Cheltenham Literature Festival or, if you’d prefer to stay local to Motorhome Holiday Company, there’s the Bristol Festival of Literature a couple of weeks later. Then, of course, there’s another opportunity to rub shoulders with Hollywood’s great and good at the BFI London Film Festival. And with London hotel prices rocketing for the event, a rental motorhome offers you home comforts and freedom at a fraction of the cost.
Hunting for photo opportunities?
Looking further ahead, the winter solstice offers motorhomers and photographers alike incredible opportunities to match light and photography with our heritage. Whether you join the throng at Stonehenge or Avebury, there’s a definite attraction to hiding out in one of our heated motorhomes with a fresh brew until the critical moment when the sun hits those stones for your perfect shot. For that matter, why not spend your autumn motorhome holiday road-tripping around the UK’s stone circles and ley line monuments, starting just ten minutes away from Motorhome Holiday Company, with Stanton Drew stone circle?
