West End Farm Campsite in Gloucester named among best in UK

The period after Christmas can feel a little less festive and with the cold, dark nights continuing, it’s no wonder that Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year, falls in January each year.

If you’re looking for something that will brighten your January, Pitchup has released a list of 20 of the best campsites in the UK for wellness including one in Gloucestershire.

The data was determined by analysing and compiling a list of 30,000 reviews on the site over more than 12 months that contained words linked to improved mental health and wellbeing.

The list was ranked by the number of times these words were mentioned.

Pitchup says research has shown that viewing natural scenery can improve mood and reduce stress, ideal for those who struggle with their mental wellbeing.

According to a government study, people who spend more time in nature are significantly more likely to report good health and improved psychological wellbeing.

In addition, a recent survey by Specialised Covers found that a third of Brits felt that camping or caravanning has had a very positive impact on their mental health.

The Pitchup website describes West End Farm Campsite as being a “small family-run site on an organic cattle farm”.

If you choose to stay here, you’ll be able to take in the views of the River Severn and visit the local pub which serves locally sourced food and real ale.

Why not take a stroll along the river paths or the area’s flat and quiet roads?

There’s a toilet block on site and you’ll be able to enjoy barbecues and campfires during your stay as these are allowed.

Enjoy the campsite with the family plus your dog as canine companions are welcome all year round.

Dan Yates, founder of Pitchup commented: “There is plenty of research out there which shows a direct correlation between getting outside during daylight hours and state of mind. Being outside is not only good for our physical health but also for our mental health. 

“So many reviews on our website reference how positive and peaceful their stay made them feel, which is testament to the impact this kind of holiday can have.”
