And, as Julia is the President of the Camping and Caravanning Club, we took the opportunity to ask her ten questions about her camping life.
What benefits do you think families can draw from outdoor life?
The list is endless and I could bang on for hours and hours but to me camping isn't all about the actual camping, it’s about finding a beautiful outdoor location that you feel happy in and you think differently when you have an entirely new set of functions to perform and there is a freedom away from the routines at home.
Where is your favourite area in the UK for camping?
I am always drawn back to the Lake District, as it has something for everyone and the setting for the Camping and Caravanning Club Site in Keswick is breathtaking.
What do you look for in a campsite and have you any favourite sites?
Cleanliness is always key, especially the loos!
What is your best family camp/camping experience to date?
As Matt Baker (fellow TV presenter) is godfather to one of my twin girls, I would count him as family and one of the funniest experiences I had was camping with him in the New Forest when he appeared wearing a duvet onesie in bright red. He looked hilarious!
What is your favourite camping pastime and why?
Sitting round the fire with the kids eating s’mores. See Julia's s'more recipe here.
