Visiting from New Zealand

With strong historical ties between the two countries, the UK has always been a popular destination for New Zealanders. Maybe it’s about visiting friends and family, investigating family roots or just an easy-going holiday in a country that is different enough to excite, yet similar enough to be stress-free.

Visiting the UK from New Zealand - Motrohome guide

Catch up with friends and family the easy way

If you are planning on touring the country to see friends and family, what better way to do it than in a motorhome? You have the flexibility to form your plans as you go – stay a few days in one place then move on if you wish. A motorhome can be the perfect accommodation choice – it’s easy should you choose to cater for yourself, and you don’t need to impose on hosts if they are short of space at home.

Ideal for all weathers and all seasons

The UK’s temperate climate and notoriously changeable weather can make for a tricky time if you are camping, and it’s pretty much out of the question in winter. Our motorhomes are fully heated with warm air vents in the living space, and have the option of air conditioning the cab for sunny days.

Perfect for children

If you’ve travelled a long way for your holiday, the value of a comfortable, familiar bed for the duration of your stay can’t be underestimated. Having your own self-contained living space makes it easier to quickly get right back into the routines which suit your family, as well as cater for any specific dietary needs they may have.

Not only this, children love it! The novelty of the motorhome experience can transform their holiday, and means the fun starts as soon as you pick up the keys.

Hire with a valid New Zealand license

With UnbeatableHire there’s no complicated rules with international licenses. Quite simply if it is valid in New Zealand then we accept it. If you have points or convictions on your license, just contact us and we will see if we can help. 

Read on for our highlights of the gorgeous British Isles, from Wales to England, Scotland and Northern Island there is much to behold on your Motorhome holiday!

A Home away from Home - Scotland

With approximately 20% of New Zealand’s population hailing from Scotland, it is a destination with great resonance for some. The name Dunedin is Gaelic for Edinburgh, and if you are interested in researching Scottish roots then Edinburgh should be your first stop.

Visit the Scotlands People Centre

This is the largest family history centre in Scotland.

Whisky Distilleries


Scotland is internationally renowned for whisky production, and if you are a fan, there are lots of opportunities to learn more. Many of the distilleries welcome visitors for tours, so have a look if you have a particular favourite. Otherwise, if you are simply curious to see how it works, visit the Glenfarclas Distillery in Speyside – it was one of the first to open a dedicated visitor centre and they promise a warm welcome.

Historical sites in Salisbury – step back thousands of years

Stonehenge

The countryside around Salisbury holds some of the most significant historical sites in Britain – and it has been ranked highly by the Lonely Planet guides as one of their top 10 places to visit. The iconic Stonehenge should be on everyone’s list – a World Heritage site, it is a prehistoric wonder with a top-class visitor centre. 

Stonehenge.jpg

 

Avebury

Nearby Avebury boasts yet another stone circle – the largest in the world. The stones were originally erected about 4,500 years ago. It is a curious site, with a picturesque village and a chapel in the centre of the circle.

Avebury_henge_and_village_UK.jpg


Old Sarum

Old Sarum is another character in Salisbury’s illustrious history – a huge Iron Age hill fort with 5,000 years of stories. You can enjoy panoramic views of Wiltshire from the summit.

The Magna Carta

Salisbury Cathedral is home to one of the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta – a famous document created in 1215 and now believed to be the foundation of democracy in England. During 2015, there will be a series of celebrations of the Magna Carta in Salisbury, such as a Medieval Pageant and a flower fair.

The quaintest English villages

No visit to the UK would be complete without visiting a few of the delightful little villages that are so characteristic of this country. Some have been beautifully preserved with many original idiosyncrasies and interesting qualities.

Hambleden, Buckinghamshire

On the edge of the Chiltern Hills, Hambleden is a classically lovely English village with thatch, brick and flint cottages, a bustling river, and a delightful 14th century church with an old water pump in front. Many houses have roses growing round their doors, and there’s even a village tearoom to complete the experience.

The Chilterns region is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – with tree covered hills and stunning views.

Lower Slaughter, Gloucestershire

This Cotswold village is the epitome of English charm. The unusual name has nothing to do with slaughter as we understand it – it comes from the Anglo-Saxon ‘slotre’ which means ‘muddy place’. It’s not so muddy these days, more a much cared-for village which hasn’t seen any new building since 1906.

Mousehole, Cornwall


This harbour village is close to Penzance, and boasts winding cobbled streets, granite and slate cottages and a picturesque port. In the winter, Mousehole is famous for its extraordinary displays of Christmas lights – all the houses are covered, and parts of the harbour too. If you are travelling with children, there is a famous book called The Mousehole Cat’ which would make a nice addition to the trip.

This unique town has a long history, dating back to Norse times. It is a splendidly higgledy-piggledy place, with a ban on cars to help preserve its natural beauty. The town was a favourite of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth – and you can visit the grammar school where he studied and witness the original desks with all their carvings and marks.
