9 Benefits of Staying at a Holiday Park Instead of a Hotel
When you’re planning a holiday, finding the right accommodation is undoubtedly a priority. A hotel room might seem like the obvious choice, but how about a more flexible, potentially better value option?
To find out how UK holiday parks compare to hotels, read on! As the team behind a 4* holiday park in Devon, we’re passionate about providing high-quality accommodation and know how much holidaymakers enjoy their time here.
1. Top Attractions on Your Doorstep
We’ve chosen the location of our Devon holiday park with great care to ensure that it’s as welcoming and convenient as possible. The same can’t always be said for hotels, especially those in large towns and cities, where life is hectic and space is in short supply.
Our accommodation in picturesque Dawlish Warren is near excellent transport links and top Devon tourist attractions. You’ll find a Blue Flag beach, breathtaking park, coastal walks, shops, restaurants and much more on your doorstep.
2. Fantastic Facilities
Staying at a holiday park means having access to fantastic facilities that go beyond what hotels typically offer. Guests love our children’s playground, crazy golf, sports area, amusement arcade and family-friendly club, not to mention our indoor heated swimming pools, complete with waterfalls and fountains!
We also help you to take care of practicalities – a launderette (no need to pay extortionate fees for hotel laundry services!), ironing facilities and parking spaces are available on-site.
3. Home from Home
Holiday parks offer a greater choice of accommodation than many hotels, with something to suit all tastes and budgets. We provide luxurious lodges, spacious bungalows, stylish apartments and superior static caravans. Many are pet-friendly (unlike most hotels!) and some sleep up to nine.
The average hotel room is far from homely, and you’re unlikely to have much space unless you pay a premium. By contrast, our great value accommodation is designed with home comforts in mind. Enjoy living and dining areas, well-equipped kitchens, en-suite facilities and peaceful bedrooms.
You can’t beat a holiday park for that home-from-home feeling!
4. Friendly Atmosphere
Hotels can feel impersonal, filled with endless corridors. For a friendlier atmosphere, try a holiday park instead. Our lodges and other accommodation types are positioned in small groups, giving you the chance to socialise with your neighbours. Holiday parks have a real community spirit – which is one reason why many guests return again and again.
5. Do What You Want
Devon holidays should be fun, not formal. At hotels, you’re likely to encounter rigid meal times (possibly with dress codes) and be disturbed by housekeeping staff. At our holiday park, you don’t need to fit in with someone else’s routine. How you spend your time is up to you.
6. Self-Catering is Cheaper
Full-board and half-board breaks are tempting – until you see the bill! Staying in our self-catering holiday accommodation is a great way to save money while eating and drinking whatever you fancy. It’s also ideal if you have special dietary requirements or your kids are fussy eaters. There are supermarkets nearby, or you could visit Devon’s amazing farmers’ markets.
If you don’t feel like cooking at any point, you’ll be pleased to know that we have a restaurant (serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper), café and fish & chip shop.
7. Free Nightly Entertainment
Unlike hotels, holiday parks are well known for their family entertainment. We strive to bring the West End to Devon every night with our free shows. There are games, film screenings, talent competitions and more for kids and teens too. One of our recent guests, Julie, said: ‘The entertainment was by far the best I have ever seen.’
8. Value for Money
When you book a stay with us, there are no unpleasant surprises – the price you see is the price you pay. That’s not always the case with hotels (especially if you order room service!). We aim to give you real value for money. Thanks to spacious self-catering accommodation and excellent amenities, you and your loved ones can holiday together in comfort without breaking the bank. Even electricity, gas, linen and WiFi are included.
Staying at our holiday park means enjoying a more personalised break than you’d get at many hotels, which often lack character and have very limited options. With a wide range of things to see and do on-site and locally, and no set meal times or other inconveniences, you can tailor your Devon holiday according to your tastes and enjoy true freedom.
