Motorhome Hire North West England

Encompassing many of Britain’s finest landscapes, the North West of England is the area that runs along the Irish Sea coast from the Welsh to the Scottish border. Away from the allure of its big cities, spots to look out for include Morecambe Bay, which combines dramatic coastal landscapes with a whole host of adventure sports and places to take your campervan rental North West of England. The Lake District National Park is prime walking country and contains Scafell Pike, the highest point in England, as well as lakes that inspired romantic poets including Wordsworth and Keats. The region also contains parts of the Peak District, such as Saddleworth Moor, and the gentle hill country of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Survival Guide

  • Several dialects exist within the North West of England, including Scouse in Liverpool and Cumbrian in the Lakes, although they share the vast majority of words with standard English and aren’t complicated to understand
  • The cost of a main meal for two averages €30
  • A pint (half a litre) of beer will cost from €2
  • The North West of England is much more laid-back than the Greater London area. People tend to be less hurried and much friendlier to visitors.

Gastronomy

Lancashire hotpot can still be found on restaurant menus, and consists of a slow-cooked casserole of beef and vegetable chunks topped with a layer of sliced potatoes. Another is the Cumberland sausage. Taking their name from the old name for Cumbria, they are made from pork and have a distinctive coiled shape. They are normally served with mashed potatoes. If you’re feeling in need of something sweet, look out of Eccles Cakes in the region’s bakeries, which sees a filling of raisins encased in melt-in-the-mouth pastry. The drink of choice when going out remains beer, with several local ales and stouts widely available.

The best time to hire a campervan in North West England

A blend of the urban and the rural, the North West of England is the home of Manchester and Liverpool, but also three national parks and a further three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its climate is representative of England’s weather conditions more widely, with mild summers and cold winters.

This means that the period between June and September are the most popular months for renting a motorhome in the North West of England. Visitors at this time of year can expect to experience daily average temperatures of between 16-18°C. It is warmest in the south, around Manchester and Liverpool, and cooler in the north around the Lake District.

Temperatures taper off in September and again in October when leaves turn gold and thoughts head towards the festive period. Temperatures are similar in March and April, averaging around 8-10°C. North West of England campervan hire is wonderful at this time of year since its heaths and woodlands are covered in a blanket of wildflowers.

Winters can be harsh, particularly in the most exposed areas of the Lake District National Park. Although heavy snowfalls are unlikely, temperatures don’t rise much above 1 or 2°C from November through to the start of February.

Anyone who has ever visited Manchester will know that an umbrella is a good idea at any time of year. For your best chance at avoiding a shower, you’ll want to plan your visit to the region for April or May, while October tends to be the wettest month of the year.
