Choosing a Caravan Park for your Holiday

Caravan ParkIn one of our previous blog posts, we blogged about picking the right motorhome, now it’s time to choose the right caravan park to take your motorhome to.

If this is your first time taking a motorhome holiday, then it’s worth considering staying in the UK rather than travelling across Europe as it may be more familiar to you and easier to get help if you need it. However, there are many caravan and holiday parks throughout the UK so you will be sure to find the ideal park for you.

There are a few other factors to think about when you’re choosing a holiday park, these include:

Budget

For most of us, one of the biggest factors when choosing a holiday is the budget. The motorhome itself, along with buying motorhome insurance, will have been quite an expense already. Therefore, it’s worth finding out the caravan’s park price tariff and if there are any discounts for longer stays. You may find some holiday parks offer discounts if you are over 60 or older and are generally cheaper during off peak seasons. The only main expense once you’re at the caravan park, would be food and drink, which can be relatively cheap – depending on how hungry you are!

Facilities and Entertainment

If you are a family with young children, you’ll probably be looking for a different style of holiday, compared to if you were travelling solo or as a couple. Some caravan parks will have swimming pools, a children’s play ground, family entertainment and also a kid’s club. Other holiday parks will have crazy golf, spas and a full leisure activity programme. Most will have something going on, so if you are looking for a more quiet and relaxing holiday, choose a rural holiday park that’s in the heart of the countryside. They are never too far away from the local village if you do fancy going down to the pub.

Other facilities to consider that may be a laundrette, if you are planning to stay for a while or Wi-Fi facilities.
Once you have narrowed down potential holiday parks, look at reviews on the internet and ask other motorhome owners where they have stayed and where they would recommend, before choosing which caravan park would suit you the best.
