Seasonal savings – spring and summer deals from £3.60 a night
The sun, he came out this week and he had his hat on. We would normally say that very quietly in mid-March in case he goeth away again, but British Summer Time starts on 30March, we get an extra hour of sunny evening light, and we are feeling a decided spring in our step. (Hence, we are steadfastly ignoring any forecasts of rain.)
We’ve also heard vague murmurings this week about a Budget type thing, so have proclaimed this the prime sunshiney time to bring you some of our hottest (chortle) offers for spring and summer. Budget-filled blogs and tips below too!
We’ve grouped our selected deals into three categories – spring, summer and ‘get in quick’ – deals ending soon:
50% off pitches at Callow Top Holiday Park , Derbyshire : From £8.50 a night, 22 April – 1 May, for a non-electric grass pitch and £10.75 for hardstanding with electric. Callow Top is an award-winning park with cycle hire, fishing lake and its own microbrewery, but best of all for the kids, it’s less than seven miles from Alton Towers.
40% off pitches at Whitecliff Bay Holiday Park , Isle of Wight : Whitecliff Bay on wonderful Wight is very awright (that’s enough whites, we think), with indoor and outdoor pools, Jacuzzi and soft play room/adventure playground for tiddlers. A non-electric grass pitch from 28 March – 22 May starts from a piddling £3.60 a night – all the more money to spend at Dinosaur Isle two miles away.
