Why Choose a Static Caravan this Summer Holiday

With Summer getting ever closer by the second, you may be wondering whether to head to your trusty static caravan for this year’s summer holiday.

Here at Retreat Caravan Park, we certainly think you should, simply because there are so many things a static caravan holiday can offer you. We’ve outlined some of the best reasons as to why you should choose to visit your static caravan these summer months.

Home from Home

Having your own static caravan to visit during the summer is like having a home away from home. You’ll have all the luxuries and excitement of being on holiday but still have the cosiness and can’t-beat feeling that comes with being at home.

Bring the Whole Family

Unlike a holiday abroad, the whole family can visit your static caravan to join in with the summer fun. Whether you want to invite grandma over for the weekend, bring the dog along on the family trip or invite friends for the night, you can do it all in a static caravan.

So Much to Do

Static caravan holidays often come with so much to do for the whole family, or at least they do at Retreat. We have a range of fantastic facilities for you to enjoy and are conveniently located on the beachfront in Burnham-on-Sea, where there is so much to do and see every month.

No Travel Fees

Whilst your static caravan may be far enough away for you to incur petrol fees and a long car journey, the cost will be nothing compared to the fees that come with airport transfers, flights and car hires at the other end!

New Locations

Whether you’ve been to your static caravan a thousand times before or not, it’s always interesting to explore a new location. Why not catch the train to the next town across for a fun day trip or check out the local attractions you haven’t already visited?

If you’re interested in having your own static caravan, take a look at the fantastic range of homes and pitches we currently have available.

Essentials to Pack on your Summer Static Caravan Holiday

If you’re heading on your summer holidays to a static caravan this year, you may be wondering what essentials to pack. If you’re staying in the UK, the weather could be an issue, so you’ll want to ensure you pack enough clothes for both hot and cold temperatures!

We’ve put together all the essentials to help you pack for your time away, ensuring nothing gets left behind!

The Basics

Forgetting the basics on your static caravan will quickly cause chaos and Dad running out to the shops! We would recommend you remember to bring some of your own tea towels, bath towels, washing up bits and toilet roll, as these are unlikely to be supplied for you. Remember to take bed linen with you if your static caravan doesn’t already have some.

Remember to take pots, pans, cutlery, cooking utensils and crockery if you don’t already have them in your static caravan; you won’t want to be caught without these.

Food

It’s a good idea to keep some tinned food in your static caravan for the entire season, to avoid having to entirely stock up every time you go away. Many people choose to bring some fresh food bits with them on their static caravan holiday to avoid having to nip to the shops after a long day of travelling. We’d advise bringing bread, tea or coffee, milk, sandwich spreads and ready meals with you.

You can then stock up on other bits later once you have settled in, meaning you won’t have to shop immediately and can visit local markets for fresh produce.

Entertainment

We all know British weather can be very unpredictable, which can mean some forms of entertainment may be required. Whilst there will be a lot of activities in the holiday park itself and its surrounding areas, you should bring some family games, DVDs, magazines, crosswords and other things you can enjoy on a rainy day!

You should also bring some entertainment for sunny days, like bikes, bucket and spade, fishing rods, balls and frisbees, for example.

Clothing

As previously mentioned, you should bring an array of clothing with you that will suit the ever-changing English weather. Pack some sandals, wellies, swimsuits, jackets, thermals, shorts and everything in between! It’s better to bring it with you and be prepared then caught out in the rain wearing 30-degree attire.

If you’re interested in owning your own static caravan, we can help. We have several beautiful holiday homes available to purchase, all of which come with a generously spaced pitch, private garden and standard facilities at our fantastic Burnham-on-Sea location.
