A recent study has shown that this year could be a record-breaker for holidays in the UK, with 41% of Brits saying that they’ll be treating themselves to a ‘staycation’ rather than jetting off abroad.
That’s a 6% increase on the number of people that said they would be holidaying at home last year, so how come so many are people staying in the UK this summer? Parkdean Holidays have a few great reasons why.
One of the main obstacles to taking a holiday abroad is the price, with flights often costing hundreds of pounds, not to mention the cost of hotels plus holiday essentials like clothing and sun cream. By enjoying a British holiday, such as visiting one of the UK’s great caravan parks, you could be set to save a small fortune – and a tank of fuel can cost considerably less than a plane ticket!
Parents with small children may not relish the prospect of taking their little ones abroad, as long flights, unfamiliar foods, extreme temperatures and a disruption to the daily routine can often result in very unhappy kids. However if you choose to take a caravan holiday at home instead all of these issues will be easily avoided, meaning that you can start enjoying your much-needed break from the moment that you and your family arrive.
From the Lake District to Loch Ness, the UK has countless fantastic destinations that make great excuses for a memorable British holiday. What’s more, many of these places are often within easy reach of a quality caravan park such as those in the Parkdean Holidays collection, so you can explore our wonderful country all from the comfort of your very own caravan.
It Supports the Local Economy
Another good reason to enjoy a British holiday is that it’s not just you and your family that will feel the benefit. Many small local businesses across the UK have felt the pinch in the wake of the recession, and tourism to their local area can provide them with a much-needed boost. That’s a great reason to visit those small family-owned cafes, independent craft shops and quirky bars when you enjoy your next caravan holiday in the UK – and you’ll get to experience something new and unique too!
