Park Resorts have 49 different parks and are all over the UK by coastal towns.
We've stayed at California Cliffs in Great Yarmouth, Valley Farm in Clacton on Sea, Warden Springs in Isle of Sheppey and Lower Hyde on the Isle of Wight.
The best way to enjoy a trip in the UK is to firstly use Sun Tokens. This is where you collect token numbers from The Sun Newspaper and then you can get your caravan for a huge discount. However, the online prices for Park Resorts are still extremely good value if you are unable to get the tokens. On certain weekends their weekends away start from £64.
When we stay in a caravan, we always make up a picnic and then go exploring for the day and then go back for dinner in the caravan before we watch the entertainment. We take our own food and buy from the local supermarkets.
When we were in Warden Springs we had our new puppies with us, so we upgraded again to a Silver Plus, which had three bedrooms and the master bedroom was ensuite. The theory was to put the puppies in the third bedroom....but this plan fell through, as it wasn't suitable. So the puppies stayed in the lounge area in their crate.
This is our Warden Springs Caravan which is a Silver Plus. I wouldn't recommend Warden Springs for a family holiday but if you just need a cheap base, then its fine, but there's not much there. However, I would recommend upgrading to higher standards of caravans.
When park resorts make up the beds for you, its always white and very minimal. So if you prefer big fluffy duvets, you just need to take your own!!
I generally think of staying in a caravan as a warmer version of staying in a tent. Just take everything with you and get the heating on !!
This is our caravan in Clacton-On-Sea. This is a grade Silver upgraded caravan.
I'm not sure where to book next, but I do love that after living in England forever, it's nice to see it for all its beauty. You don't need to go abroad all the time, you can relax in the UK for great prices and in beautiful surroundings. The kids love it, as we have to drive, so the travelling isn't that long and they get to do something different every day. We like visiting educational places for the kids aswell as just hanging around the beach.
Make sure you collect your discount vouchers for the local activities or start saving up your Tesco Clubcard points and use these for Days Out and for eating.
I would definitely recommend Park Resorts for many reasons. They have everything you need and it is fun for the kids, as that is our main priority. If the Kids are happy then so are we! However, plan ahead and make sure you have activities for each day.
