Camping, Caravans, Mobile Homes
A few years ago, the trend-watchers would have happily sent camping and caravanning holidays the way of the tinned pilchard and string vest. But now Most tourers and holiday homes come with double glazing and heating as standard; many have en-suite bathrooms, airy pitched roofs and wrapround verandas.
Most modern tents are cheap, light, simple to erect and keep you snug all night long, whatever the weather. Even the vocabulary is new: caravans are now tourers, static caravans are holiday homes and camp sites have become holiday and touring parks. About the only thing that hasn’t altered is the scenery: holiday parks were always situated in some of the most beautiful parts of the English countryside, and they still are.
|Château des Ormes -
Pools, Kids Club, Family Holiday Park.
With a magnificent woodland setting, this is a quite exceptional parc. Very lively in high season, yet a favourite for all ages in May and June.
|Pra' delle Torri -
Boasting the largest swimming pool in Italy, this site is in a gorgeous setting with excellent facilities. It even has its own small high street of shops.
|Coome Sands Haven Holiday Park - UK
Haven offers the perfect base for your family holiday or short break. Where you can enjoy all the facilities, activities and entertainment on the Park. Or simply relax and unwind and take life as it comes.
|California Cliffs, East Anglia & Lincs
Enjoy a swim in the indoor pool, whilst the kids shoot down the flume in the outdoor pool. Sparky’s Krew activities promise hours of fun for the kids. In the evening, enjoy a delicious meal in the Waterside Restaurant then go onto the Clifftop Showbar for fantastic family entertainment.
Many first time campers ask what do I need to take? Will there be flushing toilets and hot showers? Will the kids get bored?
Campsites now have full facilities and much more than you would expect. You can still find the quiet campsites where facilities are basic, but on the other hand, you can find campsites complete with Kids Clubs, Waterparks and Full Entertainment Programmes.
By rule of thumb, buying a tent that is supposed to sleep six, really only sleeps four comfortably. If you're going for longer than a couple of nights you really need a tent big enough to stand up in.
Whether you’re a family or couple, are looking for a camping holiday, caravan park or a self catering mobile home park, your holiday can be as relaxing or as varied as you want it to be.
