Believe it or not, planning a trip to a holiday park is a fun time for the whole family. Whether you’re embarking on a weekend getaway to a Devon holiday park or a week in Cornwall during the summer holidays, knowing what to expect and being prepared will ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience. To make the most of your time on holiday, here are some top tips to keep in mind when planning.
Research the perfect holiday park for you
Not all holiday parks are the same, so it’s important to do a bit of research before booking so you choose the one that best suits you and your family’s needs and preferences. Consider the location, available facilities, options for accommodation and what activities you can do on-site. By taking a look at some reviews left by previous guests you’ll be able to get a good idea of whether it’s the right park for you.
Make sure you book in advance
Holiday parks can get busy, especially during peak times like school holidays. To secure the best parks for your preferred accommodation and dates, it’s best to book your trip in advance. By taking the time to book a little earlier, you’ll not only secure better availability but in some cases a discounted rate too. Give yourself peace of mind and something to look forward to by booking in advance and avoiding last-minute availability issues.
Pack some essentials
Make life easier and write yourself a checklist of essentials that you’ll need for your trip. Don’t forget to include your toothbrush! Additionally, consider packing some things that you’ll need for the holiday park you’ve picked such as swimming gear, sports equipment, board games and of course, suncream. Packing the right items will mean you’re prepared for all of the different activities and can make the most out of your stay.
Embrace the big outdoors
One of the best things about booking a holiday park is that they’re usually located around beautiful places. Take full advantage and embrace the outdoors by getting involved in some of the activities available to you during your stay. Many holiday parks have beautiful walking trails nearby, so be sure to explore the natural beauty all around you. Additionally, on-site you can take part in activities like fishing, biking, crazy golf and much more. Spending time in nature is incredibly relaxing and great for every member of the family.
Be mindful of the rules
Each holiday park has its own set of rules and regulations to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all of its guests. Make sure to familiarise yourself with these guidelines before your trip. Pay attention to any restrictions on noise levels, pool usage or pet policies. By following the rules, you’ll maintain a positive atmosphere in the park, for you and everyone else.
