Why are caravans so popular?
It’s amazing that caravan holidays, especially in Cornwall, have retained their popularity over the years. What is it about this type of holiday? Why do they bring back warmer memories than an all inclusive in Spain?
For many, a caravan holiday brings back a sense of nostalgia, remembering holidays in the past with family and friends.
For many others, it’s the practicality and the great value they offer, especially in Cornwall, where prices can be at a premium for bricks and mortar type holiday accommodation. Of course, recent developments in caravan styling and décor have helped retain their popularity – some modern units feel almost like a new luxury apartment!
Fun for kids
A caravan holiday to Cornwall is always going to work well for the kids. Watch the excitement on their faces when opening the door to a new experience – new beds to pick, cute cupboards to messily unpack all their worldly belongings into, new TV’s to watch!
Then step out of the front door and there is a whole world of fun within a safe, structured environment. It may not be everyday that you can allow the children the freedom to explore by themselves; make their own way to the shop and back, cycle their bikes along the roads. But on most holiday parks, especially at our Cornwall holiday park, we pride ourselves in providing a safe environment for kids to play and explore.
For the grown ups, the joy of having a new home from home, complete with separate bedrooms, well-equipped kitchens and comfy living rooms is bliss. The kitchens are perfect for catering at your own pace and handy for looking after the fussy eaters. No set hours for early breakfast, lies ins with a cup of tea will set the day off nicely!
Getting away from it all
Most holidays help families get away from the internet of everything. But there is something about a caravan holiday, with nature on its doorstep, the woodland and wildlife that helps distract from the electronic gadgets.
And a caravan holiday always seems to encourage family games. When relaxing together in a cosy caravan, it’s easy to dig out the cards or board game and enjoy fun time together.
A great value holiday
Caravan holidays in Cornwall are a great value way of exploring somewhere new.
Cheaper than hiring a cottage or staying in a hotel / B&B, caravans offer a great alternative for a cheaper family holiday. Cheap holidays are getting increasingly hard to find, so it’s no wonder that caravanning are gaining in popularity.
If you need to work to a strict budget, then you’ll get the best value if you travel in a large group, making the most of perhaps a six or eight berth option.
If you can only travel in school summer holiday times then it’s important to book as early as, as the best parks and caravans are reserved up to a year in advance by return visitors. You can then budget during the year, paying a low deposit up front and then paying off the rest in instalments.
Why holiday parks?
