Caravans are becoming a more popular choice of holiday due to it getting harder and harder to find cheap holidays be it abroad or here at home. Whether you have the funds to choose a top of the range caravan or go for something that needs lots of TLC, there is a holiday out there waiting for you, no matter who you are or your budget.
There aren’t really many limits on how far you can go. You just need a means of towing and the road ahead of you. Some choose to stay local, others like to travel further afield. Some even find their perfect site, put the legs down and stay forever.
There are sites for everyone, small ones with just a field, perfect for off grid and getting back to nature, Ditch the phone, the tablet and the laptop. Pick up a book, go for a walk, sit back and watch the birds. Large sites with serviced pitches, parks, club houses, restaurants, pubs and bike hire and so the list goes on. Sites for families, adult only sites. Sites in the city close to the hustle and bustle. Sites in the forest with only the wildlife for company. Sites with stunning sea views and sites high in the mountains. There is something out there for you with prices varying from a few pounds a night to the more expensive. It’s not always true that you pay for what you get. You pay for what you can afford and make the holiday your own all for a fraction of the price of the swanky hotel in a foreign destination. Getting out there, seeing things you’ve never seen before, the UK is a big old country and never fails to surprise and provide things to see and go for free.
Freedom for the children to run free and explore nature, endless dog walks, relaxing evenings watching the sunset and early mornings catching the sunrise. Cold and frosty mornings contrasts with those of balmy summer mornings when the sun tries to creep it’s slender fingers around your blinds. Sleeping with the windows flung wide open contrasting with icy nights outside and the heating keeping you snug during the night.
Having the ability to take your pets away with you. Unlike travelling high in the sky, on the open road your pets can come too. Dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, we’ve even seen a ferret on a lead enjoying a caravan holiday.
Being able to take your home comforts with you as you travel, not having to think about whether or not it’ll fit in your case. These home comforts have the ability to help you settle into a holiday quicker.
Cheeky fry ups that you don’t have at home and a glass of something in the evening. A different view from the same window every time you park up. Finding places to explore, quaint tearooms and local restaurants. Long walks, short walks or just sit and relax. It’s all out there waiting to be found.
Mixing with like minded people of all ages. People with a wealth of caravanning years behind them who are more than happy to advise and chat away a few minutes, to the family on the next pitch who have children the same age as yours. Chatting on the dog walk or just simply sitting quietly and watching the world go by. The holiday is what you make it.
