Holiday Parks are Family Friendly Accommodation!

Holiday Parks are the perfect accommodation choice when traveling with children of all ages. Most Holiday Parks offer children play equipment or trampolines. An increasing number of Holiday Parks have full blown children playgrounds with new state of the art digital play, water features, sports courts or the infamous Jumping Pillows (a giant high grade inflatable air pillow which is great fun for the entire family).

They have Hot Pools, Cold Pools, Spa Pools, Beaches and Lakes!

We have all jumped on Google and searched for accommodation with Pool, Spa Pool or Heated Pool before but did you know there are holiday parks with all of these options and more! If you find the perfect Holiday Park and they don't have a pool- it may likely be because they are in close proximity to a beach, river or lake for you to enjoy. Other parks have free access to local swimming areas too so make sure you check out their websites  before you look elsewhere.

Bring a Tent, Caravan, Campervan or just bring your bag!

Holiday Parks are the perfect place to meet the family and pitch a tent or bring the caravan/ campervan and enjoy some time out. Over recent years, parks all over the country have been investing in quality powered, non powered and roofed accommodation. There are a range of different types of accommodation options available and as an added bonus, if they are booked out through the peak periods, you will often find special rates for this accommodation during quieter months. Most Holiday Parks will have linen, crockery etc for hire on site or free for use in the communal areas. Some even have cafes or restaurants onsite! 

So before you book your next stay... check out to see if one of these amazing parks are in the surrounding area.
