TOURING CARAVAN PARKS

With more and more people in the UK investing in their own caravan, it stands to reason that touring caravan parks will prove a popular destination when the sun comes out.

And these days, touring caravan parks are not longer just a patch of land where you can rest your caravan for the night. Now these caravan parks come with swimming pools, luxury showers, children’s playgrounds and lots more.

In most caravan and camping sites, you get the basic land pitch for your caravan or motor home, along with electric hook-ups, a toilet and shower block, washing facilities, chemical waste disposal, TV and telephone point, and water, freezer and ice pack facility. For those of you heading deep into the countryside, you’ll probably also find touring caravan parks with a camp shop selling basic caravan accessories such as camping gas, cleaning chemicals, buckets, bread and milk, etc.

Touring caravans, which are basically ones that can be attached to the back of a car and towed to their destination, come in many shapes and sizes, from the very basic to the extremely luxurious.

As well as a couple of beds, a table and seating area, touring caravans come with a variety of accessories these days, including gas/electric-powered refrigerator, stove, oven and grill, a shower and water heater, toilet with removable disposal tank and flush-water tank, radio, TV aerial/satellite dish, air conditioning and a CD player.

The main advantage of using a touring caravan park is that you can turn up with your caravan or motor home with a moments notice and pitch it overnight before heading off the next morning, or a few days later, to explore another part of the UK. However, please bear in mind that caravan parks tend to get very busy during the summer season so it may be worth booking in advance to make sure you get a spot when you arrive.
