We hope you have an amazing time exploring the city and surrounding area when you hire a campervan in Bristol. From Bristol, it is easy to head off on all types of adventure. What about a historical trip to Bath, a hiking trip to Wales, camping with wild ponies on Dartmoor or a surf trip in Cornwall? To make you holiday planning even easier, we’ve put together a camper’s guide to Bristol and insider tips like where to camp and when to visit.
When you hire a campervan in Bristol you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a cafetière plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from Bristol you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the station. Full details of what’s included and our suggestions on what to bring along to your Bristol campervan holiday can be found in the equipment list.
For the optimal experience, hire a campervan in Bristol during the spring and summer months. With temperatures warming up and the days growing longer, you’ll find Bristol at its most lively and picturesque. These months offer the perfect weather for exploring, and are when many of Bristol’s festivals happen. Autumn, too, can be a delightful time to visit, as the city’s parks and green spaces transform into a sea of red and gold.
When you rent a motorhome in Bristol, we ask you to fill up your fresh water when you set off, and empty your waste water at the end of your trip. There are few places to do this other than campsites unlike in America and mainland Europe, meaning that the most stress-free way to do this is to begin and end your adventure at a campsite with these facilities. Some campsites allow you to use their facilities for a small fee if not staying there. This map when filtered for ‘Aires with disposal services’ shows available waste disposal sites – you can see how rare they are in the UK, so a campsite with these facilities is ideal.
