Choosing a perfect family holiday can be difficult, especially when everyone in the family has different ideals of what exactly makes a holiday perfect. But if you’ve got young kids and a limited budget, then camping is a great way to make holidays affordable and fun.
Even if your partner shivers with the horror at the prospect of a week under canvas, you don’t have to rule out a camping holiday just yet. For instance, with some of the facilities that caravan parks Devon and Cornwall have to offer such as mobile homes and purpose built holiday lodges for rent, you can choose just how basic or how deluxe you’d like your camping holiday to be. Of course, staying in a holiday park’s accommodation will be more expensive than turning up with your tent and cooking gear in the back of your car, but it’s much cheaper than booking a private holiday cottage or apartment.
And although you might not have the same amount of privacy as with a private rental, you’ll benefit from a great range of facilities that are available for everyone on the campsite to use – usually including a fun pool, playground and evening entertainment, as well as a restaurant and bar.
The other huge benefit of staying on a holiday park is that you’ll have numerous families with children doing the same thing, so there’s plenty of potential for your kids to find new friends to play with, giving you more time to relax.
If you’re thinking about this kind of holiday in the UK, some of the caravan parks Devon and Cornwall have to offer are second to none in terms of location and access to beautiful beaches and countryside. Of course, it depends where you live and how far you want to travel, but there are some great holiday parks all over the UK.
If you’ve never tried it, don’t knock the idea of camping as a holiday option. It may turn out to be the most perfect family holiday yet!
