Holiday parks

Top features of taking a break in a holiday park

Clubs, social groups and large family groups are well catered for when they book self-catering accommodation in a holiday park. Cottages, log cabins and other properties can be reserved as a block booking and this is particularly easy when they are part of a holiday complex. Wherever you are heading for in the British Isles or Ireland there are parks available, often with a myriad of leisure facilities associated with them for the use of guests.

Holiday parks usually have a swimming pool for guests to use

Many groups choose this kind of holiday accommodation because they are invariably situated close to a lake or a coastline. This is often the case with pine lodges, which you will find plenty of within holiday complexes in Scotland, with great views and opportunities for angling nearby.

The beauty of staying in a holiday park is the variety of activities open to guests compared to when they book a private property for their break. Holiday parks in England, for example, will usually have a swimming pool, a gymnasium, tennis courts and sometimes a golf course.

Log cabins
Log cabins are invariably close to a fishing lake

The rural location of many of these complexes also means there are numerous walking and cycling trails in the surrounding area, which makes them ideal for ramblers’ or social cycling groups. This is particularly the case with self-catering accommodation in holiday parks in Wales, where you are also invariably close to challenging mountainous and hilly terrain.

Many groups head for holiday parks because of the luxurious spa facilities available, such as beauty treatments, massage, hot tubs and saunas. And the cost is usually much lower than it would be for them to stay at a spa retreat.
