Whether you own a touring caravan, a motorhome or a tent, there are so many amazing destinations in the UK to visit and thankfully, there are plenty of holiday parks dotted all over the country to stay at. As you may expect, not all holiday parks are made equal though and you’re not guaranteed the same experience at every park you stay at.
If you’re currently planning your next holiday, whether this is a family-friendly holiday or a couples getaway, and you’re trying to find the best holiday park to stay at, keep reading today. Below we have put together a list of important things to take into consideration when you’re narrowing down your options. Thinking about everything mentioned below will help you to ensure that you’re choosing the right country park for your upcoming trip.
The location of the park
Depending on the type of holiday you’re planning, you may have different needs when it comes to location. For example, if you want a relaxing trip, booking a holiday park that is set in the tranquil countryside will be brilliant. However, if you want to explore somewhere new, being a short drive from nearby towns will likely be best. Always remember to take into consideration how easy it is to get to a holiday park as well, especially if you’re going to be towing a caravan.
The local tourist attractions
Generally speaking, wherever you choose to stay, there will be lots of tourist attractions nearby, yet they might not necessarily be of interest to you. So, think about what your hobbies and interests are, and bear these in mind when you’re choosing a holiday park. Ideally, you want to be nearby to attractions that you’re keen to see and this will help you fill your days with fun. Don’t forget to think about whether you’d prefer to be near ancient woodlands or sandy beaches too, this will impact what the local area has to offer.
The type of pitches available to book
Not all holiday parks will have the same pitches available and it’s important to check what you’re able to book. Also, consider how much space you’re likely to need. You may find, for example, if you’d like to set up an awning, some pitches won’t be big enough for you to do so. It’s worth looking at how much a pitch is to book as well and whether there are any additional costs to think about, this can differ quite a lot from one holiday park to another.
The facilities on-site
To make your holiday as convenient and enjoyable as possible, having a selection of facilities on-site is essential. Again, different holiday parks offer different facilities and some aren’t as well equipped as others. Take some time to think about what facilities you would consider to be crucial, such as; toilet and shower blocks or dishwashing areas. Also, think about what facilities you’d ideally like to have on-site, such as; swimming pools, dog walks, licensed bars, live events and other entertainment options.
The duration of your trip
You may find that depending on how long you plan to stay at a holiday park, your priorities change. For example, if you’re booking a two week summer holiday, you may require different things than if you were booking a long weekend in the autumn. Arguably, the longer you plan on staying at a leisure park, the more important it is to find the perfect location and ideally, there should always be a friendly on-site team to help make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
