Kids adore camping in all its guises, whether you stay in a tent, a mobile home, a motorhome, a caravan or glamping accommodation such as a safari-style tent or a yurt. All give children the freedom to get out enjoying themselves in the fresh air, to make new friends and to try new activities, with or without you in tow.
Often described as ‘campsites’, holiday parks often have pitches for tents, motorhomes and caravans, and sometimes offer ready-pitched tents too. That said, most holiday park guests stay in mobile homes (static caravans), chalets, lodges or similar.
Many holiday parks have facilities including pools or even waterparks, sports fields and childcare. This makes them akin to holiday villages, which are larger and usually don’t offer camping – accommodation is generally in lodges, cottages, apartments or villas. Some holiday villa accommodation is luxurious, with private hot tubs and/or games rooms and the like, and some holiday villages even have swanky spas…
Many holiday parks and some holiday villages have also branched out into treehouses, yurts and other glamping options. At the other end of the spectrum are glamping sites themselves: ‘glamorous camping’ venues with quirky accommodation, often situated on working farms (see our farmstays guide).
