Think golden sand between your toes, the smell of the sea, and the sound of the whole family having fun. That'll be a Haven holiday.
Whether touring and camping, or staying in one of Haven's comfortable holiday homes, you'll feel like you're in a home from home. 23 of the landscaped holiday parks have touring and camping facilities, where you can pitch up ready for some relaxation and fun. The amenities for campers include all the comforts of home - electric, water and TV connections, modern toilets and showers, dish washing and laundry. Some of the parks also have family rooms with baths and showers and a children's play area within the touring section.
If hiring a caravan holiday home is more your thing, or you're a camper but want to take the extended family with you, then you've got a choice of accommodation - self-catering caravans, summer houses, chalets, apartments, safari tents, yurts and luxury lodges.
Then it comes to the things to do during your stay. Water activities are first on the list, with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, water play areas and SplashZones - meaning water fun for all ages and abilities. Since family fun is paramount, there's plenty to do to spend time together, such as football, golf, tennis and fishing. For the more adventurous you could try your hand at climbing, abseiling, fencing and archery. There's even a spa at a couple of the parks if you want to treat yourself to some TLC.
After a busy day of fun, the evening is time to relax and let someone else take care of things. Each Haven park has a choice of places to eat and drink, from fish and chips to fine dining. If you'd prefer to eat in your accommodation then takeaways are available and the shop on each park will stock everything you could need for your holiday.
Evening entertainment comes in many forms. Visiting celebrities, the circus, game shows and bingos, along with singing and comedy acts too. The schedule of entertainment is designed so there literally is something for everyone to enjoy.
There's nothing quite like a family beach holiday. With the 35 Haven parks dotted along the British coastline, you're never far from a sandy shore. Better still, the beach is where the best things in life come for free - building sandcastles, paddling in the sea and hunting for shells and crabs in rock pools. The beach is the perfect place to take a blanket, a picnic, and spend some time winding down with the family - especially as some of the Haven parks are situated near quiet coves. For nature lovers, you might spot dolphins, seals and eagles, or you can take a boat trip to discover them. For the thrill-seekers there are great beaches for watersports like surfing and sailing.
So, whatever you're looking for from your next holiday, escape to a little bit of Haven.
