Caravan holidays are one of the best types of family holidays to take in the UK. There is a stunning selection of British caravan sites to choose from. Perhaps you think there are too many and you are struggling over which one you should choose for your next family break?
If you are, let us help as we look at what we feel are 5 of the best caravan sites for families in the UK.
Lakeside, Donamott Parks in Somercotes
Although some of the facilities at this park are rather on the pricey side of the spectrum, there is an amazing selection of things to do for the children. There are football pitches, an all-weather games area, indoor swimming pool, tennis court and a selection of adventure play areas. AS it is well placed, you are only a short distance away from the local beaches too.
Thorpe Park in Cleethorpes
This is a great site for children of all ages. There are brilliant indoor pools with sides and outdoor parts too. There is also more nautical themed facilities such as the outdoor splash area and there is a well-designed and laid out play area outside too. As if that stuff was not enough already, there is also a land train that provides direct access to the local beach.
The Ranch in Maybole, Ayrshire
If you are heading north of the border, or already live in Scotland and looking for somewhere nice to visit, you could try the Ranch in Maybole, Ayrshire. There are a couple of great outdoor playgrounds, one that is directed at older kids and one for toddlers and there is a large outdoor games area with football nets. For when you want to enjoy some fun in the water, there is an indoor swimming pool and even a sauna for the grown-ups.
Withernsea Sands Holiday Park in Yorkshire
Spend time in Yorkshire, taking in the scenery and the wonderfully friendly locals at the Withernsea Sands Holiday Park. This has a very old-fashioned feel to it with crazy golf, amusement arcade and the pool all being particular favourites with the kids. There are also some nice playgrounds too and the site is about 5 minutes walk away from the local blue flag awarded beach.
Burrs Country Park, Just Outside Bury
This is a beautiful caravan park that is located inside a country park. There is a great little family-friendly pub for mealtimes and water sports centre that the kids will love. Although there are no playgrounds, there are plenty of other things that will entertain the kids, while you adults get a break.
There you have it, a nice selection to choose from. If none of these takes your fancy though you could always take a look at the Caravan Club – who have plenty of sites available up and down the country that are child and family-focused.
