If you love nothing more than getting out on the open road and setting off to explore new places, a caravanning holiday is probably something that holds a strong appeal. And if you're wondering what the best UK destinations are for this kind of break, read on.

There are numerous locations perfectly suited to caravanning getaways – but before you hit the road, you need to make sure you have the correct touring caravan insurance in place.

After all, you don't want to have the extra worry of financial difficulties should your caravan sustain any damage. And by getting as many caravan insurance quotes as you can, you should find you're able to get a good deal.

Once your caravan insurance is in place, you can start planning your adventure.

Wales is known for its incredible scenery – and Gwynedd is no exception. The ideal base for exploring Snowdonia National Park, Gwynedd is a fantastic spot that may particularly appeal to walkers and cyclists keen to see Wales's tallest peak.

Alternatively, if you're interested in immersing yourself in the classic British countryside, why not head to Norfolk? Here you'll find yourself in the heart of stunning landscapes, with beautiful rolling hills and stunning coastlines to explore.

What's more, you'll also be able to visit a variety of attractions, from the city of Norwich and Sandringham – the queen's country retreat – to The Pensthorpe Bird Reserve.

Walking, sailing, cycling and playing golf are just some of the other activities you can enjoy here.

A firm favourite among holidaymakers, Cornwall is an excellent destination for caravanning breaks. If you're after a particularly tranquil Cornish getaway, why not head to the Cornish Riviera?

If you would prefer to visit the north of the country, however, you might like to stay in Cumbria. Another destination with a reputation for splendid scenery, Cumbria is home to the wonderful Lake District National Park.

This incredibly beautiful park attracts countless visitors every year, drawn by its awe-inspiring landscapes.

If you're eager to explore the Lake District, Wild Rose Park in the lovely Eden Valley is an excellent place to base yourself. Just a short drive away from the national park, it is close to a range of other attractions.

For example, Appleby-in-Westmorland is extremely close by and boasts excellent traditional pubs and an 18-hole golf course.
