As UK citizens, we often take for granted just how beautiful the British countryside really is. On a balmy summer’s day, wandering along a Cornish coastal path, taking to the wilds of Dartmoor in South Devon or heading to the sandy beaches of Dorset, can be as beautiful and breathtaking as anything a foreign destination can offer.
The great problem for many British people, however, is that for many years the success and enjoyment of any vacation in the UK was always measured by one single, indefinable characteristic: the quality of the great British weather.
Even the best laid holiday plans could be torn to shreds by the vagaries of the British climate. There are countless families across the UK who can tell stories of turning up at one of their favourite touring caravan parks, and being forced to spend vast swathes of their holiday sat in their caravan, often in a howling gale, complete with buckets of cold rain to compound the misery.
Now, this no longer needs be the case, thanks to the foresight of companies like Hoburne Holiday Parks.
Hoburne is a company that has recognised that the British countryside is uniquely beautiful and can represent a charming idyll on a perfect summer’s day. Despite that, Hoburne also understands that the unreliable British weather means people who come to stay on their sites require two distinct things: outstanding accommodation; and some alternative activities, should the weather prove to be less than accommodating during their stay.
In terms of accommodation, the company offers its guests an outstanding range of services and properties. These vary from serviced pitches for caravans (and for tents at the Hoburne campsite in the Cotswolds), to a variety of self-contained apartments, chalets and lodges available for families or groups to rent throughout the year.
Each caravan pitch has its own electricity point, as well as space for cars and extra space for awnings (depending on pitch booked), in addition to being set amidst the verdant tranquillity and beauty of the south-west corner of England. The lodges, chalets and holiday apartments to rent come in a variety of sizes and are equipped with everything you need to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one.
Not that you will be spending a great deal of time in your chosen accommodation, as one of the features of Hoburne Holiday Parks is the sheer number of outstanding activities available on site.
Each Hoburne Park offers a wide range of entertainment, both indoors and outdoors, suited to all members of the family, ranging from indoor and outdoor swimming pools, adventure playgrounds and crazy golf. All parks except Blue Anchor and Doublebois also offer a wide range of nightly shows that feature some of the best illusionists, bands and cabaret artists that you will find in the UK.
Tommy Tots and Sammy Squads ensure that younger guests are entertained safely as their teams of professional entertainers keep the youngsters enthralled with their antics and activities. Regular visits from Sammy the Seahorse, Larry the Lobster and Tommy the Turtle often prove to be a highlight of any youngsters stay at a Hoburne Park.
Hoburne Holiday Parks also offer specialist teen clubs for those aged 12 and above, featuring a range of competitions including football, air hockey, pool and many other activities that will keep the older generation of children amused. This allows mum and dad to relax and enjoy a game of bingo, or perhaps take advantage of the outstanding indoor swimming pool for a chance to relax.
With seven venues across the glorious south-west, incorporating parks in Cornwall, South Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Somerset and the Cotswolds, you have the best of the British countryside and other outstanding attractions right on your doorstep.
With so much on offer at great value prices, it is easy to see why so many people are opting to make their vacation a staycation at one of the many luxurious Hoburne Holiday Parks.
