Holiday Parks in the UK are quickly replacing traditional package holidays abroad with more and more people choosing to holiday closer to home. This UK holiday park trend has occurred for a variety of reasons - not least because holidays in the UK are better value than even before. It used to be the case that you could get a lot of Euros for your money making holidays abroad a cheap option for families. Now that this is no longer the case the British holiday market is seeing a real revival.
Families especially are really well catered for as many of the holiday parks throughout the UK have been designed with families in mind. Swimming pools, kids clubs and evening entertainment are popular features at many of the holiday parks and some are also close to sandy beaches, perfect for holidays with young children. Of course you may prefer a quieter getaway either as a family or a couple. The good news is there are many quiet and peaceful holiday parks too in stunning locations where you can enjoy walks, exploring local villages or simply relaxing.
Well presented and spacious caravans and mobile homes make self catering holidays in the UK a good option for families. Taking your own food with you means you can holiday on a budget and can also enjoy the flexibility of eating at whatever times suit you. Packing a picnic and going out for a fun family day trip is always popular or if you prefer to cook then the mobile homes offer well equipped kitchens. For those times when you want a break from cooking many of the parks have restaurants or snack bars serving good quality food.
The choice of holiday park accommodation is also better than ever with a range of caravans, lodges, bungalows, apartments and cottages to choose from. Some parks are more traditional style caravan parks while others offer more choice in terms of accommodation style. It really depends on the type of holiday home you are looking for and which would suit the size of your family and your budget. Even the holiday parks which offer mobile homes only often divide the range into bronze, silver and gold standard caravans so you are sure to find something to suit you.
For the more discerning traveller there is also a good choice of luxury holiday parks such as one of our favourites, Finlake Holiday Park in South Devon. Luxury holiday parks offer an amazing range of accommodation which is of a very high standard. These luxury parks also offer quality entertainment and plenty of activities and facilities to keep the whole family entertained. Some of the activities on offer could include horse riding, football, golf, fishing, tennis and watersports. For nature lovers some of the parks offer nature trails, woodland safaris and guided walks too. If you really want to pamper yourself then choose a luxury holiday park with a spa such as Gwel an Mor, a five star holiday village with a top of the range Wellbeing Spa. There are sixteen pamper packages to choose from including facials, body treatments and head massages.
