As time go by, more and more people are taking static caravan holidays and short breaks. They are drawn by the sense of nostalgia and making memories that can be treasured, but why do people seem to want to go on  caravan holidays rather than a  trip abroad? Below are few of the reasons why caravan holidays are so great and what they can offer you.

Old Versus New

Old Static Caravan

In there day the old static caravans were modern and up to date but compared to modern caravans of today, they were totally inadequate for the Great British climate.No central heating, very little insulation to name just two. They did of course as they do today allow a family to go on holiday, stay in the same rooms at a reasonable price. I.E. low season sleeps 8 caravan can be as cheap as £2.15 per person per night in low season rising to £15.18 per person per night in high season. New static caravans are like homes away from home, just a little smaller and more compact. Most new vans have good insulation, central heating and are double glazed. Some have dish washers (as no one wants to wash up), your on holiday right?, Washing machines, full sized cookers, fridges and freezers. A lot have decks, so you can sit out on sunny days.

New Static Caravan


Leaving the UK can be a daunting thought for some families, especially for families with young children, but you don’t need to abandon the good old UK to have the perfect holiday. Staying close to home can be great for young families as it helps to make them feel safe and secure during their time away, therefore diminishing stress levels and making the experience more enjoyable as a whole.


A static caravan offers you the comfort of a home away from home whilst being able to take advantage of the entertainment for children and adults provided for free in most cases by the caravan park. Most parks have swimming pools, restaurants and bars South Bay Holiday park where all our caravans are located have all 3 and more.
