UK Family Holiday Parks, Caravan Parks and Lodges
What to expect from a UK Holiday Park holiday
There is possibly not a single person in the United Kingdom who hasn't headed to one of the many hundreds of holiday parks dotted around the country, whether it is in Cornwall, Devon or perhaps a bit further up North. It seems to be a bit of a 'right of passage'. Of course, with travel becoming cheaper, there are more and more foreign nationals that are also using holiday parks in the United Kingdom. So what do these holiday parks compromise of? Let's take a little look.
Generally, there a couple of types of holiday park out there. The majority of them are dedicated caravan parks. This means that there are 'static caravans' all over the park. These caravans will all have a different berth. This simply means the amount of people that will be staying within the caravan. Some of these caravan parks will enable you to take pets, although not all of them will do, so it is worth checking in advance if this is the case or not. In addition to this, there are a few caravan parks (although they are few and far between) which will allow you to take your own caravan or tent and still be able to enjoy all the facilities which you wouldn't get from a traditional campsite.
UK Holiday Parks
The majority of the holiday parks throughout the United Kingdom have been built around major tourist resorts. This of course has meant that the majority of them have been built along the coast where sun, sea and sand are just a short hop away. The ones that have been built near the centre of the country have been located close to major cities and towns, which mean that you are never going to be too far away from something exciting to do.
Holiday Park Accommodation and Activities
However, many people find that they don't actually need to leave the holiday parks in order to have a little bit of fun. You should be able to find almost everything you want to do within the boundaries of your caravan parks. These may include:
Holiday parks are incredibly popular throughout the United Kingdom. Just choose an area that you would absolutely love to go and visit and then take a little look at the facilities on offer. You will be surprised at just how much fun you can have right on your own doorstep, and for a much cheaper price than if you travelled abroad!
Lodge holidays are becoming increasingly more popular throughout the United Kingdom, especially for those that live in the cities. They are becoming a great way to escape from the hustle and bustle and take a holiday in some of the most tranquil locations in the country, although some of the holiday lodges here also include a bit of that 'British Holiday' feel.
When you decide to go on lodge holidays in the United Kingdom the chances are you will be staying in beautiful log cabins. They are available in a variety of sizes, depending on the amount of people that you are looking to bring. The majority of lodges will allow you to take pets, but it is worth asking beforehand. These lodges really are a 'home away from home' and include everything that you would normally associate with your own house. This includes large televisions, Wi-Fi access, microwave etc. It will also, of course, have standard stuff such as electricity and hot water. If you are staying in one of the more expensive holiday lodges then you may even get an indoor Jacuzzi or outdoor hot tub, which are becoming more and more commonplace. It is worth checking the provider of lodge holidays to see what facilities they have, because they do change from time to time.
The majority of lodge holidays are going to be located in a fairly tranquil location, often in the heart of some of the most beautiful national parks in the country. You will be surrounded by incredibly beautiful scenery, and generally speaking, you will be secluded from the other lodges that surround you. This means that the rest of the 'facilities' in the area are going to be fairly basic and include nothing more than a children's play area and a shop. Some holiday lodge parks offer a number of activities in the area; this includes horse riding, tennis and other general 'outdoor' activities. However, it is certainly worth checking where you intend to go. It shouldn't matter too much about this however, as normally when people want to go on lodge holidays, they do so to escape. There should be plenty to do around the local area, including fantastic villages to visit, and beautiful walks to go on. It truly is relaxing.
There are a number of holiday parks out there which have started to build holiday lodges in their parks. This is because they realise that more and more people want that tranquillity, or just to stay in a slightly larger place than normal. If you go to one of these holiday lodges then you can expect all the facilities that a traditional holiday park brings, this includes:
There are plenty of places where you can take lodge holidays throughout the United Kingdom. It is worth looking into areas that you would want to go to and work from there. Don't forget to bear in mind the sort of location you want to stay in, i.e. do you want it to be tranquil, or would you prefer the hustle and bustle of a holiday park? No matter where you decide to go, you can be sure that this is going to be one of the best holidays of your life.
Hoseasons Customer Reviews (click to open/close) - here are some sample reviews for Hoseasons Holiday Parks and Holiday Lodges
Penstowe is an amazing park with lots to do on site, and in the local town of Bude. We really loved this park and are looking to go again next year!
The park was pleasant, well laid out, and the accommodation was nicely spaced for privacy and view. The Manor was comfortable, the bar staff efficient and friendly and the broadband (Wifi) was easy to connect to and free of charge - excellent. We found the lodge clean and nicely furnished, the beds quite comfortable and excellent TV and teletext. There were also some pleasant individual touches, such as books and other items.
The park has facilities for young as well as old, that made the holiday for us excellent.
I would recommend this holiday to anyone, it was really good we want to go again next summer and for longer next time!
The park has everything - a good indoor pool, entertainment that kept the children amused every night, the food in the restuarant was excellent (especially the Sunday lunch), and the park is so near to so many places to visit. We are coming back!!
Am extremely high standard of accommodation.
The team at the site took a personnal interest in serving the needs of the guests and yet did not impose themselves. The food in the manor house restaurant was excellent and sensibly priced.
The park was great also an ideal base to explore that part of North Cormwall and North Devon.
We really enjoyed our holiday here, this park is in a good location to go out and explore and the beach in Bude which is really close by is lovely.
Penstowe Park is the perfect family holiday location. We've been coming every year for 8 years and we will keep coming back. The staff are great and the kids love it!

I would reccomend Hemsby Beach Holiday Park as its a nice friendly park with lots of entertainment to suit all. All the staff make you feel welcome, and as a single mum I felt very safe being on the park.
A fantastic holiday, great value for money, a great location and great entertainment every night.
We have just came back from a fabulous holiday at Hemsby Beach. There was loads to do just off the park so we spent a few days just around Hemsby and on the gorgeous beach. But for those who want more there is plenty to do in the surrounding areas. As well as staying around Hemsby we managed to fit in a trip to Thrigby Hall wildlife gardens, took a boat trip on the Broads at Potter Heigham and spent a couple of days in Great Yarmouth where there is loads to do for all. We shall definitely be returning!
Fantastic value for money, excellent for the kids and everything was there that they needed. Loads of free facilities make this an ideal family holiday - especially when budgets are tight. Friendly, helpful staff and we can't wait to come again. Hemsby is a great location, easy to get to and has a lovely beach.
The cleanliness of the accommodation was to a very high standard and the facilities were excellent - a very good holiday was had by all.

The holiday was very good for family entertainment. We have a 3 year old who could not do enough each day and did not want to go to bed!
We arrived with an open mind and few expectations as we had paid so little for our break, however everything about the park was fantastic. We had a wonderful time and will definitely return to Hemsby Beach in the future!!!
The holiday was good value and I would recommend it to friends and family.
I have recommended this camp to friends and took some friends with us when we came to Hemsby Beach in october they also enjoyed it and are looking forward to going back there with us in march.
Very good value holiday, with plenty to keep the whole family with something to do.
