So what are the main benefits of owning a caravan?

Freedom (with flexibility!)

Owning a caravan enables you to explore the country whenever you want and at very short notice.  Just jump in your car, hook-up and off you go!   There are over 3,000 caravan parks with pitches across Britain alone, many located in some of the country’s most beautiful areas.

There are no problems with scheduling your travel to fit in with work or school.  If you only have a weekend available, you can always try a long weekend and leave on a Friday, this could be quite difficult with a normal holiday break.


Today, caravans feature all the modern comforts you could possibly imagine. Today’s technology means a great deal can be put into a compact space, making modern caravans a very luxurious place to be!

Community Spirit

There is a large sense of community spirit involved with caravan owners.  Pitch up and you will find your neighbours are very welcoming and always want to talk about about their shared experiences and places they’ve visited.  For some people caravanning seems like an activity from their younger days but now caravanning is popular for everyone.  It opens up a whole world of travel without the hassle of trains and airports!
