Static Caravans, a Different Type of Holiday


Visitors: 163

Caravanning like it or not has it's connotations, TV programmes like Top Gear cast images of old folk cluttering up the motorways with their mobile homes dragging behind their cars, in a recent episode the team even managed to nearly burn a campsite to the ground. Caravanning certainly has a bad image in the UK at the moment but still people in their thousands go on holidays in the UK in their army of caravans.

For those who don't want to be clogging up the highways and byways you can opt for static caravans, static caravans are typically much larger than conventional caravans and as such can accommodate larger family groups. The fact that they're larger means that there is more space and more chance of getting a decent night's sleep!

Static Caravans are normally found on dedicated land in holiday parks, these parks are normally near beaches and other tourist hotspots so you won't have to wander far for something to do or eat, other locations include some countryside farmers may have some caravans on their land for rent if you like the idea of being woken by the cockerel and the scenic views of vast farmland. Whilst you can buy your own holiday home, which may mean you pay rental costs for your space on dedicated land many people rent them much like a hotel room.

In fact, considering the extra space you get and that static caravans cost a lot less to maintain and run you will find that the cost of renting a static caravan considerably undercuts the price of a conventional hotel. Cheap Holidays at caravan sites are easily achieved compared to self-catered hotels, holiday cottages and hotel rooms for families.

You aren't going to be Roughing it on a static caravan holiday either, most static caravans now come with hot and cold running water, electricity mains and other home comforts that make the experience of caravan holidays much more appealing than the image they have had in the past. So for your next holidays consider caravanning as it's an affordable comfortable experience which will leave you pleasantly surprised.

Many holidays like these are cheaper if you book them yourself rather than through a travel agent. This way you'll be able to get your holidays to destinations such as Boston for a fraction of the price you'd normally expect to pay for your holidays booked through a travel agent.
