From stunning coastlines to ancient forests, the countryside surrounding Liverpool calls to those looking for a picturesque setting to relax and unwind in nature. Our local insiders give you the scoop on the best spots near the city for some good old-fashioned camping.
Pitch a tent on this scenic orchard in lush, rural Wirral. If it’s peace and quiet that you long for, this Camping and Caravan Club Certified Site on a working farm may be calling your name. Visit the local pub around the corner, stock up with provisions at the nearby shops and enjoy the tons of local walking trails. It can get chilly in the North West, so don’t forget to pack some warm clothes. While this campsite may seem rather secluded, you’re only a 30-minute drive away from Liverpool.

Just a touch north of Liverpool you’ll find Watkinsons Farm, a family-owned glamping site set on a working farm. The campsite is hugged by ancient woodlands, known as Alice’s Plantation, and the area is perfect for wildlife watching, enjoying time outdoors or just playing games with the family. Of course, it wouldn’t be glamping without the luxury bell tents, some of which contain log-burning stoves. Kick back and enjoy some off-grid peace and comfort in the Lancashire countryside.
