Family Travel in the UK with a Bailey of Bristol Motorhome

 **Advertisement Feature**

I know I'm not alone in saying how much I am looking forward to restrictions slowly lifting and even more so about the possibility to be able to travel a little further than our local area. Of course, it must be done with caution and we cannot forget to stay safe, wear masks etc. and use our common sense. But after cancelled holidays and missed trips last year, I'm really looking forward to exploring with the kids more this year. In fact, the break has made me realise just how much we love and appreciate our holidays even more! 

Whilst restrictions are lifting, travelling abroad still has a huge question mark hanging over it and we already know there will be many countries we cannot travel to. But honestly, we have so many fantastic spaces right on our doorstep, so I am more than happy sticking with the beautiful UK for all our holidays this year! There is something for everyone from stunning beaches to action-packed holiday resorts all here in the UK. And the best way to see them all has to be a motorhome: a home from home on wheels that can travel up and down the country in comfort and style. 

As a family of four, we have been considering owning our very own motorhome for exploring and adventures someday. The Bailey of Bristol website has a fantastic range of styles to suit all tastes, and one of our favourites has to be the Adamo 75-4I. It combines style with practicality and comes equipped with everything a family might need when travelling. Especially as we would love to travel to some more secluded places such as the Lake District. 

Some of the features that really stood out to us were firstly, just how comfy and cosy it looks inside! The lounge sofas are made using premium quality fabrics, as well as high-density foam. Even the driver and passenger seats are fully adjustable with upholstered armrests. This motorhome really has comfort in mind which is a big selling point for us as a family. 

Of course, when you think about buying a motorhome, another big issue is practicality. You want something that is practical and functional for your whole family. The Adamo 75-4I has this covered though with simple yet effective touches such as dual shaped wardrobes to maximise bed space (as parents we know exactly how many clothes kids will need on holiday!). There is also plenty of storage with various storage cupboards and spaces throughout including in the entrance and the bathroom too. 

When travelling, cooking can also be another deciding factor, especially when you have kids to think about. But the Adamo 75-4I comes fully equipped with a Thetford 141 litre combined tower fridge with a freezer compartment. It is also fitted with a Thetford 'K-Series' combined oven, grill and hob that have electronic ignition and flame failure device for safety and peace of mind. 

However, whilst all those things are of course important, there are some super important things to consider when thinking about purchasing a motorhome. They include practical things such as licence restrictions on weight. That's because If you passed your test after 1st Jan 1997, you are restricted to driving a motorhome that is 3500kg or less, unless you have taken an additional test to add the C1 category to your licence. Those who passed before this date automatically have the C1 entitlement and can drive a motorhome up to 7500kg.

ear not, because there are plenty of motorhomes under the 3500kg weight limit, including the beautiful Adamo we shared above (and others in the Adamo range), plus the Alliance Silver Edition and three motorhomes in the Autograph range too. If you want to know more about this, the Camping and Caravanning Club explains how licence restrictions work for motorhomes in their handy guide to driving motorhomes and the law

Another thing that is important to look at when picking your motorhome is the number of berths and how many travel seats there are. That's because, unlike a caravan where you might tow it with your car, you travel within your motorhome. So when looking to purchase, you need to ensure there are enough travel seats as well as bed spaces! For example, some motorhomes may say they are 4 berth, meaning they have four sleeping spaces, but they may only have 2 travel seats. This means that legally only two people could travel in the motorhome whilst it is moving, no good if you are a family of four. So, when purchasing it is crucial to look at both the berth and travel seats to ensure there will be enough space for anyone who may regularly be travelling in the motorhome

Fear not because when you buy with Bailey of Bristol you can buy with confidence. All of the information you need on each model can be found on their website when you are researching their motorhomes or caravans, so you can be sure you are finding the perfect solution for you and your family. Plus when you buy a Bailey of Bristol motorhome or caravan, you can know you are getting a strong, sturdy and long-lasting vehicle thanks to the Alu-Tech technology
