For some people the thought of staying in a caravan brings back unhappy childhood memories of rainy summer holidays trapped in a leaky caravan unable to escape the smell of the chemical toilet or the monotony of the 1000 piece jigsaw of Spaghetti Junction. Thankfully things have moved on considerably since then and those scarred by the 1970s should now seriously consider the benefits of a caravan holiday.

First we need to choose a destination, and where better to enjoy a caravan holiday than the English Riviera in Devon. There are several things to consider when choosing a Devon Holiday Park. Are you looking for a small quiet park or a bigger one with all the facilities? Are you looking for entertainment, such as a kids club or evening entertainment in the bar?  Does the park have Tourist Board Rose awards?

Perhaps the biggest benefit of a caravan holiday is that they are very reasonably priced when compared to other self catering accommodation, such as holiday cottages or lodges. A caravan holiday can be even more economical if you share your accommodation with friends. Modern caravans are surprisingly spacious so there’s no danger of getting in each others way but there are plenty of opportunities to have a laugh together.

One of the big benefits of a caravan holiday is that it is self catering so you are free to come and go as you please. Modern caravans are equipped with all the creature comforts so it really will feel like a home away from home. The only limit to what you take away with you is the size of your car. But don’t worry if you’ve forgotten something because most parks have an on-site shop.

Once at the Devon Caravan Park it’s time to check out the facilities. There aren’t many holidays where all your needs are catered for right on your doorstep. It is common for holiday parks to have an extensive range of facilities including swimming pools, indoor play areas, arcades, crazy golf, pubs and restaurants. It’s always good to know that on wet days or after a day out there is something to keep the whole family entertained.

Why not make 2009 the year that you find out for yourself just how much fun you can have on a caravan holiday in Devon.
