Benefits of a UK staycation

The great British staycation has seen sales sore across the UK in 2020, with more and more families experiencing the benefit on holiday at home. Aside the long travel times, faff of exchanging currency and the much anticipated holiday shop, here are some other reasons holidaying at home is a great idea...

Carbon emissions

With the boom of the staycation in 2020, the topic surrounding carbon emissions has arisen as we were able to witness the effects to the world as travel ceased. Flying is the largest carbon emission you incur while travelling abroad, whereas holidaying at a static caravan is green, cheaper and takes less time than foreign travel. For a typical journey comparison, a family would save 8.6 hours of travel time, spend 92% less on transport costs, and save 95% of their CO2 emissions - enough to brew 80,472 cups of tea!

Supporting the local community

There has never been a better time to be supporting our local shops. We are proud to use local produce in our restaurant such as beef from Wales located near our parks. We have an abundance of local cafes, restaurants, farm shops and delis recommend by our park teams, so make sure you find out their top tips.

Bring your pets

We know that many of our owners see their pets as another member of the family, and we firmly believe this too. That’s why every single one of our holiday parks are ideal for pet-friendly breaks, creating the perfect home-from-home experience. Each park offers scenic locations for walks too, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

We’ve got plenty of facilities on park to ensure a stress-free stay, including exclusive dog-friendly walking areas, plenty of disposal bins, and designated water and treat stations which are filled regularly.

Amazing scenery and heritage on your doorstep

The UK is steeped in rich cultural heritage, delicious local produce, breath-taking country landscapes and awe-inspiring beaches. A UK break means you can enjoy the best there is to offer, time and time again. Whether you discover Snowdonia views, crystal blue Cornish beaches or the taste of fresh Wensleydale cheese in North Yorkshire – you’re sure to discover why we love local one of our parks.
