Why holidaying in the UK is great

Now more than ever, we’re all looking forward to our next break away with the whole family. We’re dreaming of making memories, in new landscapes, where we’re free to explore the outdoors. Some of you may have even turned your head to the prospect of a staycation and holidaying in the UK, and we must agree that it’s an excellent choice! Why, we hear you asking…

Take a look at our reasons why a Park Leisure holiday is the way to go!

Bring your pets

Our wide range of pet-friendly accommodation means the furry ones are invited too. Where most of our holiday guests bring their dogs; your budgie, cat or rabbit can come too! What better holiday than sharing memories as a full family, and not having to pay the expense of getting your pets looked after?

No waiting around at the airport

Holidaying in the UK means getting from A to B by car or train. Say goodbye to driving to the airport, paying for car parking, passport checks, waiting around for hours, to then wait for customs, claiming baggage and airport transfers at the other end. Simply set your sat nav and off you go; it really is as simple as that.

Take as much luggage as you like

You won’t be restricted to a measly 15kg on a Park Leisure holiday. Packing full size toiletries and a few pairs of heavy trainers is back on the agenda with a UK staycation. Holidaying at home means you can pack all of your creature comforts to re-create a home away from home in one of our beautiful static caravan or holiday lodges.

Short breaks and long holiday are on the table

Sometimes we just need a few nights away, a long weekend where we can put our feet up, relax, eat good food and get back to one with nature. Many popular overseas destinations are just a bit far to travel to for a short break, but not a UK holiday. Jump in your car and you could be at your chosen holiday destination in a matter of a few hours; it really is that simple to getaway at a moment’s notice.

The weather can be pretty good

Don’t get us wrong, it isn’t as reliably scorching in the UK but a UK summer holiday can really get the temperature soaring. With great summer temperatures like this you can enjoy a stroll down the beach, a lovely country picnic or even just a glass of wine on your holiday home decking. Some of our parks even have bars and restaurants with outdoor seating boasting the most spectacular of views.

It’s good for the bottom line ££

There’s some great savings to be made holidaying in the UK, with no hidden costs. You’ll just need to budget for your holiday home and travel expenses. In a Park Leisure holiday home, you’ll always have a kitchen so you can even bring your own groceries along if you’re on a saving spree. What’s more, there’s plenty of free days out to enjoy with the rolling hills of scenic coastline on your doorstep.

You’re reducing your carbon footprint

By choosing to stay in the UK you’re helping the environment, by lowering you carbon emissions. In a society where we want to make our world a better place, why not do your part by reducing your emissions and still having a great time on holiday.

Supporting the community

Our parks and their teams are proud of the local communities that they form a part of. When you holiday at home, you’re also supporting the wonderfully hospitable rural and coastal communities here in the UK.

The best of both worlds

Self-catering holidays offer the best of both worlds. There are no crowded dining rooms on a Park Leisure break. You decide when and where you are going to dine, from a choice of local eateries to the comfort of cooking and eating in the privacy of your own holiday home.
