Wooda’s Top Ten Tips For Camping
Camping brings a wonderful sense of freedom and adventure, allowing you to really get back to nature and strip yourself of day to day stresses. The smell of fresh air around you, sounds of nature and endless overnight locations are all part and parcel of the camping experience and pursuit of outdoor adventure. The memories made will be cherished forever, friendships will be made and bonds will grow.
One thing that all campers will know is how important it is to be prepared. So with the help of our wonderful campers here at Wooda, we’ve put together a list of our Top Ten Camping Tips.
1. Having an electric hookup for a beer fridge and an electric fire.
Sometimes the simplest things in life are the best and sitting back with your camp set up and an ice cold beer in your hand is one of them!
Wellies are always a good idea when it comes to camping, meaning you’ll never get caught out. Whether it’s a muddy and wet walk, dashing across dewy fields in the morning to the toilet block or those all year round beach walks and puddle splashing.
3. Hot water bottle and hat.
We are in the UK so we have to realistic, temperatures at night can still be cold even in the summer and we all know there’s nothing worse than being cold so don’t forget to pack your hot water bottle and a hat!
4. Friends and wine.
Good friends, good wine equals good times!
5. Bikes and body boards.
Having your bike on holiday with you is a camping must. Great for travelling around the site quickly and the children will always be entertained. We have some fantastic bike trails nearby, you can pick up a leaflet full of ideas from Reception.
We are located on the North Cornwall Coast so body boards are a great asset for the beach. From our Farm Shop you can hire a Wooden Dick Pearce bellyboard or you can purchase your own so you can ride the waves wherever your travels take you.
6. Can opener and mallet.
Packing for a camping trip can seem stressful and overwhelming, but it needn’t be, just make sure you’ve got the basic essentials covered to help with cooking and camp set up. If you do forget a can opener or mallet, you’ll be pleased to know The Farm Shop sells both and has lots of essentials to keep you going for your holiday.
7. Flip flops (for shower).
This little hack is genius and hygienic.
8. Tumble dry towels each day.
Use the on site laundry facilities to your advantage! Tumble dry your towels daily so you don’t have to contend with soggy towels hanging around camp and you get to wrap yourself up in a soft fluffy towel each da. Win win!
9. Bath mat/ hand towel for after your shower.
A few home comforts can go a long way when it comes to camping and this is one of them, a great way to dry your feet after a shower.
10. Head torch.
Hands free, always pointing where you’re going and you won’t be stumbling around in the dark on those late night toilet trips.
Have fun campers! We’ll see you soon.
