Fresh air breaks are good for your wellbeing
With the warmest spring on record, coupled with the credit crunch, advance bookings for campsites in the UK have soared.
The Camping and Caravanning Club reports 10% more online bookings than at this time last year.
Meanwhile, search engine Twenga has also seen a rise in search results on camping-related items: searches on tent accessories are up by 450%, camping fridges by 124% and camping barbecues by 53%.
Couple that with research from the Camping and Caravanning Club that indicates campers really are more cheerful - and dusting down the tent becomes a no-brainer.
Some 93% of campers believed that camping makes you happier, and 77% said they were very staisfied with their lives - compared with just 59% of non-campers.
