Wanderlust, n., /ˈwɒndəlʌst/, a strong desire to wander or travel and explore the world

Feeling that urge to get out, run wild and connect with nature? Think hiking the New Forest, a Suffolk farmstay or canoeing in Norfolk – it doesn’t require loads of time, money or a long haul flight to take you to places you haven’t been or to kick back and experience something new.


Your wanderlust and our Defender’s spirit of adventure are just the perfect combination and will let you experience familiar, regional places in an unfamiliar way. 


Travelling overland as a LandyCamper, with everything you need onboard, gives you the ultimate flexibility to take your time and stop when and where you wish. In other words: the key for your adventure is waiting for you!

You may be the born explorers, get your keys, choose the direction at a whim and see what the roads hold. Go for it! The only questions you should consider before you hit the road are: ‘Where to drive?’, ‘Where to pitch?’ and ‘What to bring?’ and we have some answers ready for you: 



We are lucky this country is covered with hundreds of woodlands, Nature Reserves, historic sights, coastal walks and mountains to climb, while lush campsites to pitch-up on are around every corner. Please be aware that for the camping season 2020 it is strongly advised to book your pitch ahead of arriving at your campsite. Here are some links that can help make the most of your trip while ensuring your stress levels are plummeting right from the beginning!

The Camping and Caravaning Club

The UK’s (and most possibly the world’s) oldest and largest Club for all forms of camping. Find a comprehensive directory and map of campsites in the UK with lots of useful filters and tons of inspiration and news around anything camping. A membership could be worth it for access to hundreds of their ‘certificated’ campsites – small, secluded private campsites with only 5-10 pitches, usually in rural areas and many located in National Parks or along the coast.

Visit Essex

Essex is a real county of contrasts offering a rich tapestry of everything that makes Britain great. There is a wonderful collection of old and new, and Essex manages to combine modern facilities, fascinating towns and villages and ever-changing coastlines to create the perfect day trip or short break. Visit Essex is a great tool to explore our county!

National Trust

We cannot recommend a membership with the National Trust enough, as wherever we go it enables us to experience truly unique natural and historic places – finding beauty, space and air to breathe. The trust is Europe’s largest conservation charity taking care of hundreds of miles of accessible coastline, hundreds of thousands of acres of countryside and hundreds of historic houses, parks, gardens and archaeological sites.

Nearly Wild Camping

For those looking for a wilder, secluded or quieter camping experience, this growing network of privately owned locations to camp on is a good place to start. Members have access to an online directory of the locations and with comprehensive details of the facilities available. Their locations in England and Wales are still quite limited right now – but some of them are stunning.

Visit Suffolk

Our neighbouring county, situated on the east coast of England, Suffolk is a county filled with natural beauty, bordered by 50 miles of glorious coastline and topped with breathtaking skies. It's the perfect holiday destination, full of charming villages and medieval towns which draw in artists and writers, and its bounty of great produce and restaurants make it a special spot for foodies.

English Heritage

England’s second big trust managing hundreds of historic buildings, monuments and sites - from world-famous prehistoric excavations to Roman forts and Cold War bunkers. Whether it’s Stonehenge, Hadrian’s Wall or Dover Castle – a stroll through one of their places brings the story of England to life.

Pitch Up

Another dedicated camping directory with hundreds of listed campsites and lots of extra info, filters, pictures and instant online booking options.


There are many good hiking apps out there, but we discovered this one getting lost in the rugged landscape of Northern Spain and it works just as well on our English home turf. After a free trial it costs a couple of pounds, but whether you are hiking, cycling or running, it suggests routes or, based on your start and end point, will guide you along a customized route, with all the sights on the way and a smart topographical breakdown of surfaces, way-type and elevation analysis. Thus, it’s ensured you are always staying in suitable terrain, are safely guided and aware of what lies ahead.


Looking after 2,300 nature reserves, covering 98,500 hectares, the Wildlifetrust is our got to to find Nature Reserves, woodlands and wildlife wherever we pitch-up. Use their map search to find hidden gems for long walks and spotting some unexpected wildlife.
