Top Five Scenic Routes for Caravan Holidaymakers Chosen by Customers

MANCHESTER, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - May 24, 2011) - With the caravanning season underway Safeguard UK, has asked its customers about their favourite walking locations and scenic routes to take when holidaying in their caravans across the UK.

Safeguard, one of the UK's leading providers of motorhome insurance surveyed 1,200 online customers to find out what their favourite scenic routes were and has compiled the top five stunning walks and breathtaking views that customers enjoy across England, Scotland and Wales.

Safeguard's Top Scenic Routes 2011:

  • Driving from Belfast to Derry Taking your motorhome on a ferry to Ireland means you can take a 130 mile long drive along the largely coastal and scenic A2 road. The road travels through popular coastal towns such as Ballycastle and Portrush- celebrated for their great natural beauty. You will end your journey in Derry near the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

  • Snowdonia, Wales If you fancy taking your motorhome to Wales, the route from Betws y Coed through Pen y Pass to Llanberis offers spectacular views and access to several popular walking paths around Mount Snowdon. You will be able to get some fantastic views over the valley and there are plenty of caravan sites for you to choose from.

  • Cornwall The Cornish coast is the perfect scenic route to take for a summer holiday. It has plenty of beaches and picnic areas along the route so you can combine holiday action with great scenic drives. Chapel Porth near St.Agnes to Hayle. There is a stretch with a virtually sheer 250 foot high cliff which provides numerous dramatic viewpoints, none more so than at the North Cliffs and Hells Mouth.

  • Scottish Highlands From Inverness to Fort Augustus you can find some truly beautiful walks and historical forts and castles. The A82 will take you adjacent to the world famous shores of Lochness.

  • The Lake District With some of the most picturesque scenery you can find, there are numerous drives and walks you can take around the Lakes which could keep you content for days. One of the nicest routes to admire is Glenridding to Pooley Bridge. The drive between Glenridding and Pooley bridge takes you as close to lake Ullswater as you can get by car.

Rita Saddler, Safeguard Manager said, "The routes customers have identified are absolutely amazing, and it's no surprise that they are some of the most popular places in Britain. Our advice to caravanners setting off on a holiday is to ensure you have adequate caravan insurance in case of an accident."
