Home / Blog / Why You Should Opt for a Staycation This Summer
Posted: March 23, 2022
The time has come to start thinking about where you’re going to be headed on your 2022 summer holiday if you haven’t already.
With all Covid restrictions in England now eased, this year is the perfect time to enjoy a staycation free of the pandemic restraints that have dominated our lives and our holidays for the last two years.
You might be wondering why, after two years, you should consider staying in the UK for your summer holiday rather than jetting off abroad. Well, if you’re stuck on where to go this year, here are just a few of the reasons you should consider one of the Allens Caravans luxury caravan breaks in the UK.
Reduced Travelling Time
After the stress and hassle of the last two years, it’s only natural that you’ll want to make the most of your time away and spend as much time relaxing and having fun as possible. When you go abroad, you tend to lose two days to travelling, with long airport waits, lengthy flight times, and time-consuming hotel transfers eating into your precious downtime.
When you choose to holiday at one of the Allens Caravans static caravan sites in the UK, you can minimise the amount of time spent travelling whilst on your holiday, no matter where you’re coming from. Our holiday parks, Bredon View and The Springs, are based in the picturesque area of Worcestershire, which is easily accessible via a number of major routes, including the M5.
In contrast, our popular holiday park, Sunbeach, is located on the Welsh coast, close to Snowdonia National Park. Like our Cotswolds-based parks, it’s easily accessible via a number of major A-roads, so no matter where you’re coming from, you won’t need to travel more than a few hours to get to the park.
If you’re looking for ‘caravan holiday parks near me’, you’re likely to find Allens Caravans has somewhere close by.
What’s more, there are no transfers required, and you don’t need to worry about possible delays or cancellations. Simply arrive at a time that suits you! This means you can spend less time packed on public transport and more time on holiday.
Quality Holiday Parks with Entertainment
When choosing somewhere to go on holiday, one of the key things you’ll be looking for is the type of holiday entertainment that’s on offer, especially if you have children. At Allens Caravans, we pride ourselves on offering some of the best holidays with entertainment in the UK. Whether you have a young family, teenage children, or no children at all, there’s plenty for you to get stuck into both onsite and offsite.
For example, Bredon View in Worcestershire is built around the natural wildlife in the area, meaning there is an abundance of things to do and see in this area. It’s close to Pershore, which is situated just outside the designated Area of Outstanding Beauty, meaning you’re within touching distance of some of the most picturesque sights in the whole of the UK. This provides ample opportunity for you to spend your days wandering through the historic area, taking in the sights of the chocolate box villages that are dotted all around.
In addition to the impressive surrounding area, there are many other ways to stay entertained, too, including by playing pitch and putt or proper golf onsite. If you’d prefer to amble your holiday days away by the water, make sure you pack a fishing rod to go river fishing onsite.
The Springs offers some of the best holidays with entertainment in England, specifically for families. With an indoor pool, a games room, and live entertainment all on offer, you’ll never be short of fun at this park.
Sunbeach in Wales offers all the same benefits as The Springs, with the addition of a playground, a sports court, and a toddler soft play area, making it one of the best caravan holidays for families.
When you go abroad, you run the risk of the entertainment being nothing more than a swimming pool and a mini disco in the evening, but with a staycation at Allens Caravans, you can rest easy knowing that every day will be fun and filled with something new to do.
As mentioned earlier, Covid restrictions in England and Wales have largely been removed, meaning the situation is considered safe and stable. This provides greater certainty to those looking to go on holiday in the UK. The same, unfortunately, can’t be said abroad, with many countries still enforcing restrictions that cause uncertainty surrounding holidays and travel.
This means you run the risk of your holiday being cancelled or certain aspects of the resort being restricted, having a knock-on effect on your holiday and potentially meaning you can’t maximise your time away.
If you go on a staycation this year, you can rest assured that should the situation change, you’re able to get home quickly without having to pay for costly tests or different flight tickets.
