Summer holidays are coming to an end, but there is one more chance to go away for a much-needed staycation this August. August Bank Holiday is here, and with seemingly every accommodation already booked up, last minute holidaymakers may start to despair.

Britons may not be aware that some camping sites are only open during the Bank Holiday.

Pitchup, the booking platform for camping and glamping, has listed some of these sites.

And Britons will be happy to learn that they all still have availability at time of writing.
Rhug Estate Camping in Denbighshire is open August 26 to 30.

Staying at Rhug Estate will help Britons do a good deed, as all proceeds from the weekend will go to the Wales Air Ambulance Charity.

Lake Bala, Llangollen, Betws-y-Coed and Zip World forest are all close and Snowdonia is an hour’s drive away.

Anglesey Showground in North Wales is open August 26 to 31.

Tents, tourers or motorhomes can be pitched among 136 acres.

The site is the perfect base to explore the 125 miles of the island’s spectacular coastline along with nature reserves, lakes and reservoirs.

Hot breakfasts and evening meals are available at the site for Britons who want their Bank Holiday to be extra indulgent.

Whitby Showground in North Yorkshire is open from today to August 31.

The pop-up campsite is located on the headland of the popular north-east seaside town of Whitby.

Its Bank Holiday opening coincides with Whitby War Weekend, a living history festival spanning the ages from Vikings to World War II.

Campers who stay at the site will get free entry to the festival.

Britons staying in Whitby will enjoy the beach, boat trips, museums and railway, as well as the 199 steps stairway leading to the old town.

Purbeck Valley Farmhouse in Dorset is open from today to August 31.

This pop-up farm site has views of Corfe Castle and the Purbeck Hills and is located within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The site is only ten minutes from Wareham and Swanage and half an hour from Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast.
