Park holidays have long been one of the favorite types of holidays for UK citizens. They have been around since long before cheap flights and they have also survived them. For those who are either afraid of flying or sick of the ever-more draconian security procedures in airports, park holidays offer a real alternative.
Park holidays normally refer to caravan or holiday home accommodation, although many holiday parks also offer lodges and other services and accommodation options as well.
There are a number of companies which own holiday parks around the UK. Some of the best known include Haven, Park Dean and Park Resorts. If you book accommodation through their websites, generous savings can often be had. Park Resorts is offering special deals for the school holidays for only £279 for an entire week while parkdeanholidays.co.uk has a wide selection of special offers for England summer breaks in the region of £300 per week.
Haven is also frequently offering special deals, especially towards the end of the season. While considerably more expensive than other companies, Haven has a particularly well-establish reputation and provides some very comfortable holiday home accommodation. Summer holiday breaks for the whole family are available for as little as £499.
If it is your first time, and you are anxious about staying in a mobile holiday home, then there is really no need to be. Modern caravan holiday homes contain fully-equipped kitchens, showers, toilets, full-size beds and everything else that you would expect from a small apartment. Most holiday homes sleep up to six people.
