Find the best UK and European caravan holidays
What can I expect on a holiday at a holiday park with caravans and static homes?
Your first thoughts may be that is it all very basic with no mod cons and limited things to do. You would be very wrong. Sites offering static caravans and static homes are well organised operations with modern up to date facilities and the latest in fixtures and fittings. Some are more like semi permanent homes, lodges or holiday chalets, each with their own style and charms. Expect to find a relaxed and fun atmosphere, lots of families enjoying the facilities and out door living as part of the everyday experience.
Many sites are more like the bigger holiday parks and offer everything from grocery shopping to entertainment, somewhere to eat and drink as well as outdoor heated pools and range of activities for all ages. You can also find sites that have kids clubs aimed at a range of different ages.
Travelling to your site is made easy. For locations in the UK you can receive detailed driving instructions and for sites overseas, many companies will even organise your ferry travel and any accommodation you need on the way to your destination. You can even multi centre and stay at a number of sites in one holiday to mix and match locations.
Where can I go to enjoy static caravan holidays?
Sites are spread throughout most of the UK. Choose from areas as diverse as the West Country to Highlands of Scotland, the coast of East Anglia to the beauty of Glamorgan. There are few areas that do not have parks of one kind or another. Many are coastal, although you can certainly find campsites and caravan parks in the National park areas or inland.
Further afield, France is the obvious choice with sites spread across the country, many coastal, but again a good range inland and with excellent weather in the summer months.
You can even travel to sites in countries like Spain, Italy and Greece for that Mediterranean holiday feel. Alternatively choose sites in the Alpine areas of Switzerland and Austria, the beauty of Slovenia and Croatia or the Dutch coastline of Holland with its wide sandy beaches.
Not content? Then grab a flight to the US of A and enjoy a freewheeling trip to Florida, New England or the East Coast to enjoy campsites American style. You could even elect to hire a mobile touring home or motor home.
