6 of the Best Holiday Parks for Caravan Holidays in the UK

Caravan holidays in the UK; you either love them or you hate them. Personally, I love them! I have many fond memories of spending summer after summer staying in caravan parks across the country. From the sandy beaches of Cornwall to the rugged hills of the Lake District, caravan holidays in the UK are perfect for travellers of all ages and offer affordable accommodation in some of Britain’s best loved destinations. Whether you’re travelling with kids as part of a family, or with adults as part of a group of friends, caravan holidays in the UK make for a wonderful getaway across our four nations. Here’s my list of 6 of the best caravan parks from which to enjoy a fun-filled staycation this summer…

First up on my list of parks for the best caravan holidays in the UK we’re heading all the way to bonnie Scotland. Perfectly positioned on the banks of Loch Lomond, the Argyll Holidays Loch Lomond Holiday Park offers a fantastic waterside retreat for families, couples and groups of all ages. Boasting an array of caravans, lodges and glamping pods to choose from, there are plenty of accommodation options to suit your every need. There’s a variety of onsite facilities including a laundrette and convenience shop, TV lounge with pool table, kids adventure play area and numerous hiking trails from which to enjoy loch-side walks. You’ll also find a small dog beach and areas where you can launch boats and jet ski’s as well as a place to hire kayaks from too. All of Loch Lomond Holiday Park’s lodges are pet friendly so you can take your four-legged friends away with you as well.

 

 

Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa, Somerset

 

Nestled in the heart of Somerset’s Mendip Hills, Cheddar Woods Resort & Spa offers both an active mini break and relaxing staycation all rolled in to one. Close to the fascinating towns of Cheddar, Wells and Axbridge, as well as being in the middle of some of Somerset’s best hiking routes, this resort by Darwin Escapes offers luxury lodges, excellent sports facilities and a fantastic pool and spa. I stayed here a couple of years ago with my family for a new years eve retreat and it was the perfect way to say goodbye to one year and ring in another! Kids will love this place; there’s a tennis court, football pitch and trampoline section as well as woodland walks dotted around the entire site. For the adults, a relaxing spa treatment and use of the pool and gym will certainly be welcome. There’s also an onsite restaurant, mini bowling alley, Costa Coffee shop and souvenir shop at Reception. Don’t forget to visit the incredible caves and climb Jacobs Ladder at nearby Cheddar, or explore the medieval town of Wells too. Check which lodges are pet friendly before you book as not all of them are!

 

 

St Ives Bay Holiday Park, Cornwall

 

Another of my favourite parks for caravan holidays in the UK is St Ives Bay Holiday Park down in Cornwall. This is the first place I ever went on holiday as a six month old baby and my parents took me and my sisters back every year for our summer holiday until we first went abroad when I was 8! I have fond memories of spending many summers at this holiday park and it is just perfect for families with young children. Located in Hayle and just a 15 minute drive to St Ives itself, the park has private access to a gorgeous 3 mile long sandy beach and there’s an amusement arcade, indoor swimming pool, crazy golf course and a tennis court onsite, as well as a restaurant and bar. You can enjoy stunning sea views from many areas of the park, and there are plenty of coastal walks nearby. Lots of the chalets, caravans and camping pods have recently been upgraded and new wooden lodge style caravans have been introduced for this summer season too. Sadly pets are not permitted here but the park still makes for a wonderful Cornish getaway.

Located close to both the dramatic Jurassic Coast and the bustling harbour town of Weymouth, Littlesea Holiday Park by Haven Holidays is in a fantastic location from which to explore all that Dorset has to offer. The beautiful Lulworth Cove and iconic Durdle Door are both nearby, as is Monkey World and Farmer Palmer’s Farm Park which make great family days out. For activities there are two heated swimming pools joined by a lazy river which is great for kids, plus there’s archery, tennis, adventure golf and a nature trail too. Onsite facilities include a supermarket, launderette, coffee shop, outdoor play areas, amusements arcade and no less than four food and drinks venues. In terms of accommodation, opt for a 2 or 3 bedroom Standard, Deluxe, Prestige or Platinum caravan or choose one of the 2 or 3 bedroom luxury lodges which offer floor to ceiling glass windows and spectacular views of the park. Dogs are most welcome at Littlesea!

 

 

Tan Rallt Holiday Park & Spa, Wales

 

Up next on my list of the best parks for caravan holidays in the UK is Tan Rallt Holiday Park in Wales. Situated in Conwy, this holiday park is perfectly positioned to enjoy some of the best attractions and landmarks in North Wales. You’ll be close to Snowdonia National Park, Llandudno and Llanddulas, as well as the harbourside town of Conwy with its historic Castle and Town Walls.  Although close to some wonderful Welsh tourist sites, and within easy reach of the local beach, Tan Rallt is a hidden gem tucked away in the valleys. Onsite at Tan Rallt you’ll find the Cliffs Bar and Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks throughout the day. There’s also The Retreat Spa with first class facilities including a sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and well equipped gym, plus the Silver Birch Golf Club is a five minute drive away.  You can choose to stay at either caravans or lodges during your stay at Tan Rallt, and dogs are welcome for an additional charge and extra deposit.

 

 

Lakeland Leisure Park, The Lake District

 

 

Last but by no means least on my list of recommended places for caravan holidays in the UK we are headed to the glorious Lake District, another of my favourite places in the UK! Located in Cumbria, this Hoseasons Lakeland Leisure Park is close to the Victorian seaside resort of Grange-over-Sands and within easy reach of some of the most popular areas of the Lakes, including Ambleside, Bowness and of course Beatrix Potter World! The park is perfect for those who love water, with an abundance of lake based activities such as kayaking, canoeing, and paddle boarding which can all be done from the water sports centre onsite. You’ll also find a 9 hole golf course, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a brand new Aerial Adventure treetops course too. The arcade amusements, bar and restaurant and entertainment venues offer plenty of things to see and do, and there’s also a tennis court, outdoor play area, boating lake, shop and launderette too. Choose from 2 or 3 bedroom Standard, Prestige or Deluxe caravans, some of which are pet-friendly.

 

So there we have it, my list of 6 of the best parks for caravan holidays in the UK. I have stayed in a couple of these parks before and many more across the country over the years. There’s just something about caravan holidays in the UK which make for wonderful summers and I have many happy memories from family holidays staying in many different caravan parks. Travelling in your own caravan? Take the hassle (and cost) of hiring one of the park’s caravans by staying in your own instead! All of these parks have the option to use your own caravan, enabling you to pitch up and make your own home away from home whilst having access to all the facilities on site too. Make sure you have valid insurance before you travel though, and remember it only takes 5 minutes to compare static caravan insurance quotes online. How many caravan parks have you stayed in, and what are your thoughts on caravan holidays in the UK? I’d love to know where your favourite parks are!
