Explore the best places that the region has to offer in these wonderful holiday parks
Now that the summer months are starting to roll in, our thoughts turn to summer holidays. Whilst it’s always nice to go abroad, sometimes that can be tricky, and it can often be easier, cheaper and more fun to stick to a holiday in the UK. The South West and Wales has some beautiful spots to seek out – and an especially fun holiday idea is heading to a static caravan park. With lots of things to see and do on-site, they’re perfect for kids and adults alike, so we’ve rounded-up our favourite places to visit in the region.
Ruda Holiday Park – Devon
Situated on the beautiful coast of North Devon, Ruda Holiday Park has been a favourite with families for many years now. Featuring miles of sandy beaches popular with both children and surfers, it is perfectly positioned for a happy holiday. The park itself is set on the shores of Croyde Bay beach, meaning you get stunning views right out to Lundy Island, and its close proximity to the local village means there’s easy access to good amenities including shops and a pub. Local attractions aren’t to be sniffed at either – head over to Combe Martin Wildlife Park to see all of your furry friends (and dinosaurs!) or visit the imposing Arlington Court for a cultural day out.
Durdle Door Holiday Park, Dorset
Tucked away in the heart of Dorset in the dramatic landscape of the Jurassic Coast, Durdle Door Holiday Park is a haven for families looking for a little time away in a stunning location. Arguably one of the most beautiful parts of the country, you have panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the iconic rock arch, as well as excellent access to local amenities. There’s a café/bar and shop on-site, and you’re a short drive away from Lulworth Cove, with its sweeping shingle beaches, restaurants, bars and shopping opportunities. This is the perfect destination for cliff-top walks and kite-flying with the kids!
Kiln Park Holiday Centre – South Wales
Head over the bridge for all the fun – South Wales has an abundance of beautiful places to stay! Kiln Park Holiday Centre is a particularly good place to visit, situated right in the middle of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with the spectacular Tenby beach on your doorstep. The park itself has loads to do on-site, including a crazy golf course, sports and leisure activities, indoor and outdoor pools and a mini SplashZone. In the evenings there’s shows and entertainment to keep both the kids and the adults happy, and there’s a variety of shops and eateries to enjoy too. Visit the historic harbour in Tenby for a fun day out or head out on a boat to the nearby Caldey Island and go puffin and seal spotting!
