Kintripper’s Favourite Road Trips in the UK
Road trips in the UK are a good way to explore the country at your own pace and visit a wide range of destinations, all from the comfort of your motorhome.
The UK has thousands of miles of stunning coastline, incredible mountain passes, breath-taking countryside and rolling hills, making enjoying and exploring them all super simple – all you need to do is pack up your motorhome and drive!
We’ve put together a list of some of our favourite destinations for road trips in the UK, read on for some inspiration for your next adventure!
Cheddar Gorge, Somerset
Drive toward Cheddar Gorge – 10 miles south of Bristol – in the heart of the West Country and you will hit the UK’s version of the Grand Canyon. It’s an amazing place to road trip through, with its dramatic rock faces, underground caves and stunning views over the Mendip Hills. Glastonbury Tor, Brean Down and Tyntesfield are within a short drive if you want to explore the area further.
Black Mountain Pass, Wales
This 22-mile stretch is a challenging route which connects Llandovery with Gwaun-cae-gurwen. Beyond its coiled ribbon of road, this breath-taking route features spectacular, undulating views of the Tywi Valley. The road trip is best to do from north to south, to take full advantage of the spectacular sights.
Snake Pass, Peak District
Driving in the Peak District is a treat for the eyes, with its abundant wildlife, rolling moorland and limestone gorges. Head across the Pennines on Snake Pass (between Glossop and Ladybower reservoir) and you will feel on top of the world, as you drive 510m above sea level! The short, 20-minute route winds around the landscape like a snake and is named after a local inn. A challenging route for motorhome drivers, this isn’t a destination for the faint of heart!
Buttertubs Pass, Yorkshire
Take the high road in the Yorkshire Dales with a drive through Buttertubs Pass. This is a spectacular moorland route that runs between the towns of Hawes in Wensleydale and Thwaite in Swaledale.
The route gets its name from the limestone potholes that pepper the rock face, which the farmers used to keep their butter cool in on the way to market.
Okehampton to Exeter, Devon
See the two sides of west and south Devon on this drive, taking in the quintessential English countryside and Dartmoor’s wild beauty on the way. The 40-mile route takes you south via Castle Drogo in Drewsteignton and the pretty Becky Falls in Manaton before you hit the charming market town of Bovey Tracey.
