Static caravan holidays

Still saving up for your own swish static caravan? Haven't quite got round to buying that enormous family tent? No problem, we say, just go to a static caravan site instead.

Static caravans - the clue's in the name - are caravans which stay at a park permanently and which normally come fully equipped and heated, all set for you and yours to have a caravan park holiday with the minimum of fuss. Which is the best type of holiday, we find. Most static caravan parks also include pitches for touring caravans and tents, so there should be plenty of facilities on the site itself, especially if you book a static caravan at one of the big family holiday parks.

Static caravans at Silver Sands Holiday Park, Cornwall

Caravans on offer for hire throughout the country are well beyond the rickety, chilly cramped tin boxes you might remember from your childhood holidays. Some come with three bedrooms and sleep up to eight people, and many will have additional features such as TVs, wifi access and linen, gas and electricity included in your pitch price. 

You’ll find static caravan sites anywhere in the country, so whether you want to roam about on Exmoor or Dartmoor, go sailing or caving in Somerset, explore the Jurassic Coast or check out Hadrian’s Wall country, you’ll find somewhere nearby to stay. You’ll also find plenty of static caravan sites near areas for festivalswalking tours and National Parks.

For luxury, check out sites like Woodovis Park in Devon, with its infrared therapy cabin, heated pool and shop on site dishing up freshly baked pain au chocolat et croissants. Or there's the multi award-winning Shorefield Country Park in Hampshire, open all year round and with a spa, sauna, steam room and gym, casting off in Pembrokeshire at Yet-y-Gors Campsite and Fishery - or glamping at static sites in camping podsgypsy caravanslodges and shepherd's huts.

Then there's lounging around the Lizard Peninsula, letting the kids go wild on the coast at Ayr or staying in a static within reach of Scarborough and Filey...If you need inspiration, you can filter your search according to leisure on site or nearby, or have a look at the 'Local Attractions' tab on the site listing to see all that's available around the area. And with our caravan sites that are open all year, you can seek a static any time you need to flee, right now. Which is also the best type of holiday, we find...
