About Us

We help you experience the great outdoors

Chatty Campers visionChatty Campers is a UK travel blog all about camping and outdoor adventures. We help people realise what the great outdoors has to offer… and experience it for themselves!

As we travel the UK in our little campervan we share everything we experience along the way, from the best walking trails to the worst camping spots! To help our readers make the most of their outdoor adventures we also share our money saving tips, easy camping recipes and product comparisons.

Who are the Chatty Campers?

We are Phil and Keli, a young(ish) couple based in the South East of England. Both working full time office jobs, it’s no surprise that we like to get out-and-about in our free time. Unfortunately, for most people like us that means just a few weeks’ holiday and some long weekends! So we try to make the most of it by packing as much in as possible and sharing what we discover with others.

Out of the two of us, Keli is the camping veteran, with a childhood full of camping adventures across the UK, Belgium, Amsterdam, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and France. Converting Phil over the past few years, we are now seasoned campers! In 2016 we were lucky enough to get our hands on a newly converted VW Transporter campervan, so as well as camping throughout the summer, we have now extended our season to the whole year.  Read on to find out more about us and our vision for the Chatty Campers site, or head straight over to our camping equipment page and campervan page to read more about our camping kit.

Chatty Campers TeamMeet Keli – the cooker & booker

“I am the organised one, in charge of everything from researching new destinations to making sure we have enough change for parking. I also love doing the cooking, experimenting with new recipes that can easily be made on a 2 burner hob!”

Meet Phil – the tourer & explorer

“I am the more adventurous one, in charge of finding our outdoor activities. These range from a nice walking route to a weekend of kite surfing.  Much to Keli’s delight, I also do nearly all of the driving as we explore the country!”

Our dream for Chatty Campers

Chatty Campers FutureWe believe that now is the perfect time for a camping to make a comeback – package holidays are becoming more and more expensive, and many of the common destinations have now become unsafe for travel. Camping is the perfect alternative, providing adventure and excitement is a safe and friendly environment.

Our dream is for Chatty Campers to be the number one place to go for everything related to camping and outdoor adventures. If you want to help us achieve our dream, please join the discussion, subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media!
