The Meek Family Embark on New Caravan Challenge

The Meek Family Embark on New Caravan Challenge

Unlike most families who deem the average family holiday as an overwhelming challenge, the Meek family spent a large portion of last year completing 100 new activities. Not content with their already mammoth achievements the family are now embarking on a new challenge to stay at 20 different caravan parks in 20 weeks!

Apart from being a challenge worthy of a spot on Fort Boyard the idea is to highlight the merits of family caravanning and getting the kids out and about. As a joint initiative spurred on by the Caravan Club and caravan manufacturer Eiddis, the family were issued with the ‘Xplore Challenge' of 2014. Hailing from Arnold in Nottingham, the family have now become synonymous with the great outdoors having challenged their two daughters to complete 100 activities in the space of a year.

With the gauntlet well and truly thrown; Tim, Kerry and their daughters Amy (10) and Ella (8) will (alongside their caravanning crusade) attempt to tick off another 100 tasks along the way. According to the Nottingham Post, Amy expressed her excitement for the challenge saying "It's going to be a completely different challenge to what we've done before. We're used to being in tents and they are a lot different."

Should the family complete the task not only will they win bragging rights but also the Elddis Xplore 574 that they have borrowed for the task, so it's all up for grabs.

With the family well underway with their caravanning exploits (which you can follow via their blog) where do you think the family should go? Well if you're stuck for ideas, here at we have a great selection of holiday homes that would be enough to entice any family to explore the great outdoors.
