Hidden Gems 7-day

Boasting the most sunshine hours in the UK, the Sussex and Kent coasts are easily accessible from our Hampshire HQ and reveal stunning gems along the way. From bohemian Brighton to the beauty of the South Down National Park right the way through to trendy Margate and the brilliant sandy beaches of Camber, explore historic houses, pretty streets, famous galleries, stunning walks, wineries, gastropubs and find gorgeous campsites to park up your luxurious VW Camper and put your feet up in. Let the crowds head off to Cornwall - and instead, set your sights on the garden of England.

Our Hidden Gems route takes you from the roman city of Chichester to the rolling beaches of West Wittering. Stay at Stubcroft campsite, past Arundel and its stunning castle to Brighton. Pitch up a few miles away in pretty Ditchling and rest a while on Brighton’s pebbly beach, with a fish and chip supper in hand, or if the lure of the campfire doesn’t call you back there’s plenty to enjoy after dark. Pop by and say hello to Lewes before wending your way through the countryside to the chalk cliffs of Beachy Head for an unforgettable view.

We love a wander in pretty Rye, with Camber Sands beaches on the doorstep. From there head to the eerie beauty of Dungeness before taking in Margate and Whitstable for oysters and nosing at the pretty beach huts there. Canterbury’s cathedral is close by, then wend your way back through the original Pooh Bear country, and stay in the Ashdown Forest, before linking back up with the South Downs Way and a marvel at the lovely Petworth Park before dropping your van off.

Campfires. A beach or lake in reach. Maybe a pub. Or just miles of wilderness. Big expansive views. We love a bit of proper camping. Fancy spending 7 days on a tour of the coolest campsites like ever? Er, yes please. Welcome to our latest selection of the best spots to rock up and park the Kamper in. Campsite cool awaits.

Drive off from our Hampshire HQ and you’ll soon be at the ferry port in Portsmouth to take a short ride over the waves over to the Isle of Wight. Now a mecca for vintage cool with its many summer music festivals, it’s well loved by surfers and quite right too, the coastline is to die for. After some feet-up time on the cliff tops, ice cream in hand, it’s back over to the Jurassic coast and lovely Dorset click here. Then, because this trip is only 7 days long, we’re heading off to this little beauty in Wales to camp in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. That mountain. That view. Click here
