If staying in a Holiday Park Devon is something you are still in two minds about then maybe this little fact will help you along the way: Devon achieved in getting 3 listings included in the Daily Telegraphs ’50 Great Days Out in the UK’ this year along with other top leading attractions in the UK like Alton Towers in Staffordshire, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Lancashire, Hadrian’s Wall, Northumberland and Beaulieu Motor Museum, Hampshire. The list which is drawn up each year is a great resource for families choosing where to go on holiday and will certainly help anyone staying in a Torquay Caravan Park or hotel for their holiday to plan their days out:

1. Castle Drogo, was the last castle built in the UK, by the late great Sir Edwin Lutyens. The fortress-style home overlooks Dartmoor and Teign Gorge. The Gardens were designed by Gertrude Jekyll, there are children’s play areas, family trails and special events organized in school holidays.

2. Paignton Zoo was opened in the twenties by an eccentric millionaire and now covers 80 acres of ground which contain everything from crocodile swamps to savannah habitats, forests, wetlands and botanic gardens.

3. National Marine Aquarium, will take you on a journey exploring life in estuaries, shallow seas and deep reefs. Sharks, Sea Horses, turtles and colourful exotic fish can be seen but the centerpiece of the aquarium is the Atlantic Reef where you get to see Bass, Whiting and Pollock through vast picture windows.

If the above list doesn’t persuade you that a Caravan Park Devon is a great choice for your next family holiday or even your Christmas family holiday then maybe the idea of meeting Santa on the Express Train will!
