Why are holiday parks the best?

Planning a holiday to enjoy the beautiful vistas of Woolacombe beach on the North Devon coast? It’s a popular holiday location for good reason, and that means there are lots of accommodation options to choose from - including seaside hotels, Airbnb rentals, and homely bed & breakfasts. However, amidst this plethora of options, holiday parks are a hidden gem that shouldn’t be overlooked! We may be biassed but we think that holiday parks should top the list for your upcoming getaway and the unique offerings they provide. Here’s why…

1. Family-friendly activities

If you're travelling with children, holiday parks will make your dreams a reality. Designed with families in mind, you will find many activities to keep kids entertained. From playgrounds and swimming pools to organised games and outdoor adventures, parents don’t have to worry about keeping the youngsters occupied! At our three Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks, for example, you will find an array of activities not limited to paddleboard coaching and Segway safaris. Not forgetting our spa and gym facilities for the parents! Unlike some hotels, which may lack child-friendly amenities, and Airbnb rentals, where the entertainment options are limited to what you bring, holiday parks offer built-in family fun.

2. Affordable holiday accommodation options

Budget-conscious travellers will appreciate the cost-effectiveness of holiday parks. While hotels in popular tourist destinations like Woolacombe can be extortionately expensive, and Airbnb rentals often come with cleaning and service fees, holiday parks offer a range of accommodation options to suit any budget. From basic campsites to fully-equipped cabins and cottages, at Woolacombe Bay Holiday Parks we offer a choice of grades, so you can pick the one that best suits you and your wallet.

3. Flexibility

When you stay in a holiday park, you can plan your days according to your preferences. You can cook meals in a fully-equipped kitchen, dine on your private deck, or explore local Woolacombe pubs and restaurants - the choice is yours. This flexibility allows you to tailor your holiday experience to your liking, something that may not be as achievable in a hotel or bed & breakfast with set meal times and menu options. So, go on, create the holiday that works best for you!

4. Social opportunities

Holiday parks offer a sense of community and social interaction that can be lacking in other forms of holiday accommodation. Most holiday parks host communal spaces and activities, such as Woolacombe’s Aqua Paddlers and disc golf, that encourage guests to engage with each other. This sense of camaraderie is less common in hotels, where guests often keep to themselves, and Airbnb rentals, which are often secluded. You don’t have to join in with communal activities at our holiday parks - but the option is there if you want to.

5. Convenient amenities

Holiday parks often have many amenities, from on-site restaurants and convenience stores to laundry facilities and equipment rentals. This level of convenience can be a game-changer, especially for those who want to make the most of their vacation time without worrying about mundane tasks like grocery shopping or finding a restaurant. While some hotels offer similar amenities, Airbnb rentals, on the other hand, vary widely in terms of what they provide, and you might end up in a place with limited services. If you want an easy and convenient trip with everything you might need in easy distance - from the pool to shops to the beautiful Woolacombe beach - head to our Parks at Woolacombe Bay, Twitchen House or Easewell Farm.

While hotels, bed & breakfasts, and Airbnb rentals have their own merits, holiday parks stand out as a unique and appealing option for holiday-goers seeking an unforgettable vacation. With their affordability, family-friendly atmosphere, social opportunities, and convenient amenities, holiday parks offer every guest a well-rounded and relaxing holiday experience. So, the next time you plan a getaway, consider the unbeatable advantages of holiday parks!
