Woodland Camping: 7 Great Campsites for Bluebells

Have you noticed? Spring is here and the very first of the bluebells are starting to appear. And, with the arrival of the season, campsites across the country are starting to open up after their winter's slumber. If you'll be taking a trip down to the woods this spring, you'll be sure to find a carpet of bluebells near most woodland camping spots. And, the older the woodland, the more bluebells you are likely to find. Did you know, for example, that bluebells are actually an indicator of ancient woodland? Bluebells are often used in combination with other species as a clue that a wood is ancient. Regardless of how they got there, though, bluebells in abundance are one of the UK's greatest woodland spectacles. Here's a handful of spots where happy campers can best enjoy them...
