The arrival of spring means we can finally say goodbye to the dark mornings and drizzly weather, and start looking forward to brighter skies and prettier landscapes. Spring is one of the nicest seasons of the year, before the heat of the summer and the droves of visitors arrive at your favourite spots.
With Easter only just round the corner, and even a couple of Bank Holidays to look forward to, spring might be the perfect time of year to visit somewhere new and escape for a few days! Check out these exciting and beautiful destinations that are perfect to visit in spring, as suggested by Premier Motorhomes.
The stone villages of the Cotswolds come into their own spring. With peaceful, tranquil combination of sleepy villages and beautiful surroundings, the Cotswolds offer everything for a long weekend break. Exploring everything that the winter has uncovered, the Cotswolds is a truly relaxing destination.
From stately homes to wildlife parks, there’s something to entertain the whole family. Look out for the Easter egg hunts for the kids, or even coincide your trip with the Cheltenham Jazz Festival for something a little different!
The Cotswolds covers a huge area and runs through five different counties, meaning there’s an extensive list of places to see and things to do.
To catch a glimpse of the sun in Scotland, early spring is the perfect time to visit. Glencoe is a stunning valley that lies where Loch Leven meets the Three Sisters mountain range. The perfect destination whether you want an action-packed adventure, or a relaxing weekend.
Glencoe gives you the opportunity to take in fresh air and experience Scotland’s stunning lochs and mountains, and there’s plenty of them!

The northernmost county of England, Northumberland is home to so many interesting sights and spring is the perfect time of year to get up close to them. From the world famous Hadrian’s Wall to the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the area has tons of activities to offer for the family to enjoy.
Complete with beaches, surround yourself with natural beauty and simply relax. With stunning castles and stately homes such as Alnwick Castle, there’s no shortage of things to see. Northumberland’s wild and rugged countryside is spectacular, especially in spring.
Isle of Wight
Isle of Wight is usually a forgotten destination as it requires a ferry to reach it, but in spring it’s one of the most beautiful places in the UK. Once the winter frost has disappeared, the island comes to life with an explosion of colour from new plants emerging. Many of its attractions reopen in the spring after the winter break, so it’s a popular time of year.
The Easter Duck Race at Yarmouth is a great family day out, or you might simply want to take a walk along the beach before the summer tourists land. Isle of Wight is renowned for its trails that are perfect for cycling or even horse riding, and even more adventurous options if you’re feeling brave!
