Holiday parks have long been a popular type of holiday among the British, even in spite of cheap flights serving much of Europe. However, not everyone wants to go abroad or spend time waiting and queuing in airports. For those looking for a cheap holiday in the UK, holiday parks present a very viable alternative.
Holiday parks typically provide accommodation in stationary caravans, also known as holiday homes. Some companies, such as Parkdean, offer accommodation in lodges as well. The big chains such as Parkdean, Haven, and various others, have holiday parks all over the UK, especially near coastal resort towns such as East Anglia's Great Yarmouth.
Holiday caravans have all of the amenities that you would expect when you rent a lodge or small apartment. They have fully-equipped kitchens as well as full-size beds and proper showers and toilets. They are certainly far more comfortable than a tent!
Park-resorts.com is a good place to start looking for deals on caravan holidays around the UK. They can also arrange camping and various local tours. Their last minute deals start at £113 for a short-term break and school holiday breaks start at £279 for a week holiday in fully self-catering accommodation.
Another place to look for deals on is haven.com. Haven is one of the leading UK companies for holiday parks. Their prices tend to be relatively high, but they also offer good standards of accommodation and have a very respectable reputation. A week-long holiday in an extremely comfortable holiday home which sleeps 6 costs around £700, but you should also check out any offers they may have on.
