Caravan Holiday Guide
Caravan Park Locations
There are hundreds of caravan holiday parks in the UK and Europe to choose from for you next break, so where should you go? And who should you book? Pontins? Parkdean? Breakfree? Haven?
You'll find that many of the popular locations will get booked up quickly so you'll need to get in there early. Devon and Cornwall are the perfect locations for a family summer holiday, with many holiday parks dotted along the coastline so you're never very far from the beach. Other popular seaside locations include Bognor Regis, Clacton and Skegness, but you'll also find caravan parks in more remote areas too. It all depends on what you want to be near and what facilities you want at the caravan park.
Caravan holidays in France, Spain and Italy are also popular options if you want to increase your chances of a sunny holiday. But it can be just as much fun to visit a new part of the UK that you've not been to before like Wales or Scotland.
Family Friendly Caravan Holidays
If you're taking the kids, you'll want to make sure you book a family friendly caravan holiday. Make sure you check out all the facilities on offer at the parks before you book, as some parks might be better catered for couples or for a quieter holiday.
Some parks will have sports courts and adventure playgrounds, others will have outdoor and indoor pools, even some with waterslides. Daytime and evening entertainment is another great way to keep the kids busy but the location is also everything. Choose a caravan park by the beach and you'll certainly keep the kids happy in the sand. Or why not head out and explore the local area? Visit a few nearby attractions. Historic castles are a great way to engage the family and make it educational too.
Pet Friendly Caravan Holidays
Staying in the UK and even going abroad you might want to take that all important extra family member, the dog. Many parks will allow you to bring a pet for an additional cost. These pet-friendly holiday parks are ideal when avoiding paying for a kennel while you are away.
