5 Benefits of a Caravan Holiday This Year
For anyone who has never been on a caravan holiday the thought of it may instantly put you off. “Spending a week in what is basically a glorified trailer? No thanks!” Don’t be so dismissive, there are many great times that can be had by going on a camper or caravan holiday this year, whether you’re looking to go away as a family for a week or seeking a long and fun weekend with friends. Here are five reasons why you should consider it.
1. Affordable Prices
2. Flexible Vacation
3. Fresh Air & Exercise
It’s a common cliché that camping and caravanning gets you closer to nature, but it’s true! You won’t be sleeping under the stars (and will have the comforts of a working bathroom, running water, electricity and some heating) yet every morning you’ll want to get out and explore. This offers a great opportunity to go hiking in the hills or relax by the sea or a nearby lake at the height of summer. With only the basics in your caravan you won’t want to be stuck inside it for too long.
Sharing a campsite or caravan park with others can be a great way to make new friends. Doing laundry, washing up and using the local facilities presents opportunities to bump into likeminded caravanning folk. Chances are most will be in a good mood and happy to chat, possibly offering tips of what to do in the local area. If that’s not your idea of fun, pick a smaller, more secluded spot to stay instead.
4. The Social Side
Many caravan parks have facilities such as a swimming pool, bar and kids activity centres. These can provide a good option in an evening or on a rainy day, while you can always go somewhere that’s a hotspot for the activities you enjoy nearby, be it walking, kayaking on a lake, mountain biking or anything else.
You can tailor a caravan holiday to meet all your needs, with its levels of fun reflecting those of the effort you put in to planning the trip. So why not give it a go this year?
