Many of our fondest childhood memories are holidays spent with our families in a holiday caravan on a park on the coast or the countryside. It may have been a little while since your last experience but the memories flood back – the feeling of freedom tinged with that sense of adventure is all part of the thrill of a caravan holiday. Waking up knowing that just outside the door is an unfamiliar territory just waiting to be explored – water sports, walks, horse riding, fishing, boating, tours, the choice is endless.
The holiday caravan’s themselves will certainly have changed in the past couple of decades. If you can recall them having a slightly spartan interior, a very basic cooker and having to add extra layers for warmth, then you are in for a big surprise, they have changed beyond belief!
What can I expect in a modern caravan holiday home?
Sumptuous furnishings, fully-fitted kitchens with modern appliances and efficient central heating systems are to be expected nowadays.
With 19,000 internet searches a month for self-catering holidays in Cornwall they really are at the top end of the market. Their popularity is due to luxury, separate bedrooms with some being en-suite, bathroom, living room and kitchen/dining areas – you will find everything you need in holiday caravans these days they are so well equipped.
What should I expect to pay for a stay in a caravan holiday home?
Prices will vary from one holiday caravan to another, most holiday caravans will accommodate up to eight people.
Peak times are generally the school holidays and will make a huge difference to prices. In popular locations you can look to pay approximately £900 per week, sometimes more. Off peak times are far cheaper and for a long weekend in a luxury holiday caravan in Spring or Autumn could cost you in the region of £200 or even less for the whole family. Do not forget that the price is for the holiday caravan complete, not per person and the price you pay here at Cornish Holiday Lettings will be cheaper than any park price.
What does the price normally include?
It covers not only gas and electricity but often linen for the beds and use of the park’s facilities such as its swimming pool. Entertainment passes may or may not be included in the price, always check before booking.
What can I expect at the park?
Many parks have varied facilities and family entertainment on site. Other parks are suited more to younger families and have ranger activities or fishing without too many facilities, it really all depends on what you are looking for.
