To some, sitting under the stars on Valentine’s night might seem a little crazy. Valentine’s day falls on February 14th, and in the UK, we’re still in the midst of winter. However, to experienced campers, backpackers, outdoor enthusiasts or those looking for plans this Valentine’s, a night out in the open could be just the ticket for an unforgettable experience.  

With an ideal location, the right equipment, some nice food and that special someone, you’re all set for a romantic, memorable evening. Or if you fancy laying back and being fully catered for, there are plenty of options out there too!  

Top 3 Romantic Campsites to Visit 

 1. Wanderlusts Gypsy Caravans, Cumbria 


Incredibly romantic and unique, Wanderlusts sits in a stunning area linking the Lake District with the Northern Pennines. Here you will experience a bespoke adventure to remember forever in your very own horse drawn Gypsy caravan. With the help of your trusty guide, you will be able to take the reins of your horse and make your way down beautiful countryside tracks before arriving at your romantic campsite for the evening. 

After arriving at your idyllic location, your guide will set up a campfire and leave you to enjoy your cosy cabin for the evening. You’ll be able to paddle in the nearby stream before drying off and cooking dinner over your very own open fire. Just remember to bring your heavy-duty bag for all of your cooking utensils. Millican’s Smith The Utility Pouch 2.5L and Smith The Roll Pack 25L are perfect for carrying heavy equipment due to their adjustable storage size, waterproof materials and roll top pouches.  

Wanderlusts runs from April onwards, so it’s the perfect belated Valentine’s gift for that special person to look forward to when Spring arrives! 

2. Bryher Campsite, Isles of Scilly 


Bryher Campsite sits on the Isles of Scilly off the southwestern tip of Cornwall. If sightseeing is what you’re after, then you’re looking at the right place! . Moreover, if you decide to put your hiking boots on and head west, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.  

While arriving at the campsite, you’ll be left to pitch up on your own, unless you choose to rent a pre-set-up tent from the campsite. There’s also a local shop nearby, where you can buy essentials such as milk, eggs and bread – and local luxuries like pastries and homemade cakes.  

If you choose to light up a campfire and get cooking, that is perfectly fine too. Need some campfire cooking inspiration, check out our ideas below.

3. Yurtcamp, Devon 

If you can’t quite bring yourself to brave the cold, and fancy switching the camping to glamping, look no further. Yurtcamp is a beautiful campsite surrounded by 40 acres of gorgeous woodland. If you’re a wildlife lover, then be sure to bring your binoculars, as you’ll likely see birds of prey, deer and many other woodland creatures. 

In total, the site has 22 yurts all equipped with their own log burner, campfire pit and comfy bed. And for the stargazes out there, each yurt has a viewing dome as a roof! 

If you still want to pack up and head out into the woods, Yurtcamp has several country parks nearby as well. You can even walk the coastal paths of Devon or take a hike in surrounding 40 acres of forest.  

Load up your backpack and get camping!
