13 Haunting Halloween Holiday Destinations For Caravan Lovers
As caravanners, we can easily decide to escape on an adventure at the drop of a hat and travel across the country fairly easily. Since getting our wobble box, we try to get away as much as possible and the upcoming Halloween half-term is no different.
With the spooky season incoming, we have been looking for UK hot spots that we can explore, and across the UK, there are dozens upon dozens of hauntingly gorgeous destinations which would make for the perfect Halloween holiday in 2022!
But how to pick where to go? We’ve put together a list of our favourite 13 Haunting Halloween Holiday Destinations For Caravan Lovers:
Visit Aberystwyth for the imposing Nanteos Mansion, ghost-infested Constitution Hill, and the tale of the Mermaid – if you dare! This small town on the west coast of Wales is home to many spirits as well as plenty of nearby caravan parks for you to quickly stop over at.
Aston Hall, West Midlands
In the heart of the West Midlands, Aston Hall is the home to tales of macabre murders, mysterious ladies and tragic events that are told to this day! Just outside the city centre are various caravan parks such as Marston Caravan & Camping Park north-east of Aston Hall.
Blickling Hall, Norfolk
Located north of Norwich, Blickling Hall is apparently home to the headless ghost of Anne Boleyn. But if you don’t find her, then perhaps you may happen to meet her father,, Sir Thomas Boleyn or Sir John Fastolf of Caister. It’s a great trip for ghost-hunters and there are many lovely Norfolk caravan sites are nearby!
Culloden Battlefield, Inverness
The ghosts of nearly 1500 Jacobite soldiers who were killed in battle back in 1746 now reside at their resting ground on Culloden Battlefield. After basking in the solemness of the moors, there are plenty of places to hitch up for the night in Inverness!
Edinburgh Castle, Scotland
If you want to go on a ghost hunt, then Edinburgh Castle is where you’ll find The Grey Lady, The Piper and The Drummer, and The Ghostly Good Boy. Once you’re done, there are a variety of different caravan parks across the coast you can settle down at!
Kentwell Hall, Suffolk
Apparently Countess Rivers’ spectre once flung herself from a window and drowned in the moat at Kentwell Hall – but now a little girl can be heard calling out for her friend in the dead of night. This spooky place is a lovely day trip and there are plenty of place to rest up nearby.
Matthew Hopkins, the self-proclaimed Witchfinder General, has been sighted many times during a full moon. It is here in Essex where he resided and an area where he hunted down so-called ‘witches’ for trial to be hanged. You will find many caravan parks all around Essex and there are plenty of lovely cafes, restaurants and museums nearby too.
Sticking to the theme of witches, Pendle Hill is another location which is famous for ghost stories involving witchcraft in the early 1600s. But consider a ghost hunt carefully, as the intense physical activity is terrifying too! There are several campsites not far away too.
Plas Mawr, Conwy, Wales
A former location of the ‘Most Haunted’ series, Plas Mawr is haunted by its first owner – Robert Wynn – who supposedly died of a broken heart. Strange noises are often reported as well as other ghostly phenomena! Be sure to visit and learn more about the history.
Springhill House, County Londonderry, Northern Ireland
According to reports, a friendly spirit who loves children roams the halls of Springhill House. The benign presence is said to quietly stand on the stairs most of the time, so you don’t need to worry about any malevolent forces here! Springhill is a lovely place and there is plenty to do nearby.
Tower Of London, London
If you haven’t been to the Tower of London before, do so this Halloween! Park your caravan at a site outside of London and get the tube in to experience this haunted tower where up to 13 ghosts can presumably be seen! Don’t get too frightened while here!
Warwick Castle, Warwick, Staffordshire
For some of the best half-term family fun on your caravan travels, explore Warwick Castle to learn about a thousand years of spooktacular history! Warwick Castle is less about the more grisly ghosts and more about the great thrills you get during the spooky Halloween season. Really great for the whole family!
Whitby, North Yorkshire
Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel ‘Dracula’ featured Count Dracula as a creature resembling a large dog which came ashore near the Whitby Abbey ruins. It is this location which set the scene for such an influential novel. Now it’s your turn to explore Whitby and its haunted locations!
