Stimulation of the senses is one of many reasons for camping - like breathing in fresh air or waking to the sound of melodic birdsong. For us, having stayed on some 50 campsites over the past few months, it’s that feeling of calm, wellbeing and tranquility the whole experience offers us… not to mention the fun times that boosts the happy memories bank!
Being in the great outdoors isn’t always about being in the middle of nature. One of the advantages of Travel Service campsites is that, although many are set amidst stunning nature, you’ll often find a fascinating town or city to explore on foot or by bike right on the doorstep.
In Portugal we drove a few minutes from our campsite to Évora, a walled UNESCO World Heritage town made up of historical Portuguese buildings and Roman remains, with a Moorish influence. It was quite amazing to see such a historical mix of architecture in one place.

We’re the Hurst family: that’s me David; my wife Debs and our two brilliant boys Daniel and Darley, aged five and three, plus Colin Dog (a dynamic collie!) – and we love being outdoors and travelling.
