Useful advice about how to choose the perfect holiday park for your family
With so many holiday parks located around the UK, holidaymakers are often spoilt for choice. However, considering what you want to get out of the holiday is the perfect way to whittle down your options and find the ideal holiday park for you.
Choose the perfect holiday park location
The beauty of holiday parks is that they are found all over the UK – from the stunning south coast to the dramatic scenery of Scotland – and in the country’s most popular holiday destinations.
This makes holiday park getaways extremely flexible, allowing you to choose a location that suits you whether you want to spend your holiday escaping the hustle and bustle of city life, getting active or just building sandcastles with the kids.
It also means you never have to travel far to get to a holiday park. When you’re choosing your perfect holiday destination, think about how far away from home you’d like to travel. Nearby holiday parks are great for short weekend getaways, while travelling slightly further afield is perfect for longer holidays and exploring a new region.
Different holiday parks for different groups
If you’re holidaying with friends, you may wish to stay in a lively location such as Newquay. Perran Sands Haven Holiday Park is just 20 minutes from the lively seaside town of Newquay; perfect for those who want to make the most of the excellent park facilities during the day and Newquay’s vibrant nightlife at night.
If your family or group includes children, you may prefer a holiday park that runs activities for children during the day. Most holiday parks now have a kids club so your children can have supervised fun while you enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of the park’s own spa or heated swimming pool.
Holidaymakers should also think about what they want to do on their holiday. If it’s adventure you’re after, Greenacres in North Wales is the perfect place to explore the breathtaking beauty of Snowdonia. Located right in the heart of the national park, explore this stunning mountain region on a hike or dive into the water activities on offer.
Research each park’s facilities
Most holiday parks have a set of standard facilities in every park such as evening entertainment and kids clubs. However, the other activities and facilities may vary so research what is available at each park before you book. Take the plunge in an indoor or outdoor swimming pool, enjoy a relaxing spa day or satisfy your need for speed at a kart hire centre – the choice is yours!
