Holiday Park Guide
A Guide To Holiday Parks
For some, a holiday park conjures up memories of summer, family holidays by the sea, eating ice creams and welks and building sandcastles on the beach. For others, holiday parks bring together the best of a British holiday, even when the clouds roll in, the skies go dark and the rain pours.
Holiday parks have changed in recent years, evolving and adapting to the modern guest. Long gone are the days of beauty pageants. Now you'll often find free wi-fi hotspots, adventure courses, water slides and so much more. Kids are kept well entertained with a whole host of activities and plenty of evening entertainment too. Why not head out for a day trip to somewhere local and explore somewhere new or discover some local history?
Holiday Parks In The UK
If you're looking to stay close to home, there are plenty of holiday parks in the UK to choose from, ranging from budget stays to luxury accommodation with lots included. Parks are scattered around the UK, some inland, perfect for discovering new areas and enjoying countryside walks, while most aren't too far from the coast, allowing holidaymakers the chance to enjoy some of the UKs best beaches.
Devon is naturally one of the more popular holiday hotspots in the UK. Holiday parks here can get booked up very quickly and may sometimes cost a little extra to be at a park that is closer to the beach. Haven Devon Cliffs has been rated one of the most popular holiday parks in Devon and it's very clear why. The combination of a fantastic seaside location with easy access to the beach, combined with a park that is packed with family friendly activities and entertainment make it a favourite for both kids and parents.
Holiday parks in Essex have been a long time favourite destination for Londoners. Victorians made it trendy to head out of town and to the Essex seaside and it's still a popular spot for holidays in the UK. Destinations like Clacton-on-sea and Mersey Island make a cheap holiday from London very accessible, especially in summer.
Holiday Parks In Europe
For those still wanting to venture outside of the UK, there are plenty of well-established, family-friendly holiday parks in Europe, ranging from the north of France, right down to the sunny Spanish costas. Take the ferry or tunnel and drive down, or catch a flight and head to Europe to enjoy.
Catch the ferry to Cherbourg, Roscoff or Le Havre and head to Brittany to enjoy one of many fantastic French holiday parks. Le Ranolien in Perros-Guirec is one of the more noteworthy parks to take a look at. This fantastic park enjoys a great location next to the beach while the pool complex offers families waterslides, both indoor and outdoor pools, as well as plenty of other onsite facilities.
Holiday Parks For Families

Whether your kids are into sports, arts and crafts, dancing, competitions, or simply love a bit of evening entertainment, there are plenty of options to choose from for your next holiday.
