New to Caravanning? Advice for Beginners

If you’re new to static caravan holidaying, or perhaps you’re looking to buy your own, it can be a daunting prospect. We think it’s best to be prepared for your holiday, which is why we’ve put together our top useful tips to help make your static caravan holiday comfortable and hassle-free.

Check the Area

It’s important to understand the area you’re planning on visiting for your holiday. Does it have a beach nearby? What about local attractions and facilities within walking distance? Think about what it is you want from your holiday and if your location of choice can offer you that.

Know what to pack

The joys of the British weather mean it is notorious for surprises and a lot of rain. Obviously this isn’t ideal for a holiday, but you can prepare by thinking about what you’re going to bring with you. Remember your wellies and your swimsuit, as you won’t want to get caught out without either!

Think about Food

If you’re planning on some home cooking in your static caravan, why not bring some basics with you? This will mean you won’t have to do an unnecessary shop for things you already have at home and are safe to bring with you.

Remember Condensation

Since caravans have a relatively small surface area, they tend to mist up quite quickly, especially in the bathroom when a few family members have had a shower one after the other. Ensure you leave windows and air vents open to avoid any damp from appearing in the near future.

Enjoy Yourself

Whatever your holiday activity of choice and even if the weather takes a turn for the worse, make sure you enjoy yourself on your static caravan trip. Sit back, relax and enjoy your time away from the hustle and bustle of the real world.

Retreat Caravan Park is the perfect place to relax and unwind in an ideal location for you and your family to begin a lifetime of weekend breaks and enjoyable holidays. If you’re looking to buy a holiday home of your own, we have a range available now.
