With many people searching closer to home for a holiday, wanted to find the best spots in the UK for outdoor sleeping this summer!  *

Best Places in the UK for Outdoor Sleeping found that the Maldon District, located in Essex, is in first place with an overall score of 83.01 out of 100! Stargazing is unlikely to be interrupted by rail or road noise in this district as it has one of the best scores for low levels of noise pollution (93.70). 

Just missing out on the top spot is Ashford District (Kent) in second place, with an overall score of 78.53/100.  

Rother District in East Sussex is in third place with 77.97/100! This district scores highly across the board for a great night’s sleep in the outdoors.

South Somerset (77.93), County of Herefordshire (77.45) and Malvern Hills (77.04) are among other locations with an overall score higher than 70, respectively ranking fourth, fifth and sixth. 

Mid Suffolk (76.96) and East Suffolk (75.81) have the lowest chance of rainfall. However, with windspeed scores below 36, they’re likely to be windy getaways.

With 0.01 separating the two districts, Swale and South Cambridgeshire round off the top ten. 

Swale boasts the highest average climate score of the top ten with 76.73/100; meaning that the temperature, wind, and rainfall in the area won’t stop you from enjoying a night under the stars. 

However, South Cambridgeshire has a light pollution score of 72.30/100 and therefore will have clearer skies for better stargazing.

*Noise, light, and climate pollution scores state that the higher the score the better the area for those variables.
