The United Kingdom is often cited in numerous literature as a country with a rich history and picturesque mountainsides. Comprising of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, this state also offers an interesting cuisine and a diversified culture. This is the reason why it is one of the frequently visited countries in the world. However, traveling to the UK can be a bit pricey, which is exactly the reason why caravan holiday parks are very popular all over the country.
These caravan holiday parks offer a type of accommodation which specifically caters to those who prefer to travel in groups, whether big or small. There are two general classifications of holiday parks: the campsite and the static caravan. The campsite is often a large area which offers enough parking space for several caravans to park into. These caravans may either be attached onto the car, or built-in motorhome. On the other hand, a static caravan remains stationary and offers generally bigger units.
There are advantages and disadvantages to these two classifications. Those who wish to take their caravans with them wherever they go would prefer to stay in a campsite where they only pay for the cost of parking. This provides them with more freedom and mobility. However, due to its small size, it may not be able to accommodate all the comforts of home. Perhaps this is the preferred accommodation type for those who wish to be on the road for a longer period of time.
On the other hand, caravan holiday parks provide each unit with utilities like water, gas, and electricity, with some even offering satellite television and Internet access. Depending on the size of each unit, some are designed to have a lounge area, a bathroom, and several bedrooms. Hence, this can be ideal for those who are traveling with young children, as well as those who would like to be surrounded by all the comforts of home.
When faced with choosing between several caravan holiday parks, it is important to consider the outdoor amenities offered on-site. There are certain parks which offers an open area where guests can do whatever they want, while some offers complete tennis courts and swimming pools. Restaurants and bars are also available in some areas, which can be convenient for those who cannot prepare their own meals. Some holiday parks also offer communal laundry areas.
Caravan holiday parks are often located in the most picturesque areas in the country, which is exactly the reason why it is important to do a little research on the area first. Is it near the beach? Does it offer a panoramic view of the hillside? Are there nearby hiking trails and other natural wonders? These are the questions one must ask before anything else in order to make the most out of the trip.
When planning for a trip, it is always a must to do the proper research. Reading travel magazines help, but it also helps to ask fellow travelers who have already visited the place. Adequate preparation can either make or break a trip and that is why its never a bad idea to plan ahead.
