Reasons to love a Spring or Autumn family holiday

Everyone loves a Summer holiday, who wouldn't want to spend July to August on the beach? However, here at Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks we believe that an out of season holiday in Spring or Autumn time can be just as good (if not better). Here are some benefits of an off season holiday in the UK.

1. Escape the crowds

Outside of Summer the beaches are much much quieter giving you more space for activities on the beach with kids and dogs. Or giving you mental space to appreciate the beautiful Devon surroundings. This peaceful atmosphere is one of the biggest benefits to an out of season holiday!

2. Catch a break

Autumn and Spring are beautiful seasons of the year. However, oftentimes they can also feel like the most stressful times of year. Your children might be preparing for exams while you are settling down for work. Or maybe the wait for your Christmas or Summer plans just feel so far away. When you feel like this it could be that an off season break is just what you need to de-stress or raise your spirits, and break up the long stretch between Christmas and the July or August school Summer Holidays.

3. Don't overheat!

Even in Autumn and Spring you can experience beautiful blue sky days, so you may get some enjoyably warm weather for your out-of-season visit. But without the summer peaks, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about getting overly hot and sweaty while sitting on the beach - or making the kids sit still while you cover them with factor 50 every half an hour. But don’t leave the suncream at home just yet!

4. Nights in the hot tub

If you're coming for a Spring or Autumn holiday at one of our Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks resorts we have many affordable accommodations which include a hot tub. And what better way to spend an autumnal evening than to look up at the stars while soaking in a jacuzzi. Grab yourself a beer, glass of bubbly or cocktail and relax!

5. Spring and Autumn walks

Early Spring is a wonderful time to see the British countryside at its best; bluebell woods, sunny daffodils, fields full of lambs and blossom-heavy trees make a beautiful background for a day in nature. And thanks to a real microclimate, the milder weather means Spring comes to the West Country first. But don’t forget Autumn, when the trees turn glorious and golden. Wrap up warm in a thick coat, scarf and hat and get out into the calming British countryside. At this point in the year when the days are getting shorter and the trees are losing their leaves, getting outside is one of the best ways to stay grounded.

6. Save the pennies

As if you needed another reason for a Devon getaway outside of the popular summer months, but this last reason is the best of the bunch. Here in Woolacombe you can find one of our already affordable luxury accommodations for less than half the Summer prices when you book for the off season. That means more money to spend on fun activities or eating out. Or just save the money for another holiday later in the year.
