Haven Holiday Parks Provide the Perfect Backdrop for Autumn Walks

HEMEL, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Oct. 13, 2010) –

It’s easy to see why families love Haven Holidays. 

Facilities on the parks include huge heated leisure pools with flumes and slides, multi-sports courts, climbing walls, adventure play areas, sports coaching, kid’s clubs and a lively programme daytime and evening entertainment.

But what happens when the children are at school?

Canny couples can take advantage of Haven’s fantastically located holiday parks and a whole range of outdoor pursuits that can be enjoyed once the kids have returned to their desks. 

Most Haven parks have easy access to Britain’s stunning coastline and many sit directly on some of the UK’s most popular designated walking trails.

Flagship park Devon Cliffs lies on the furthest point of the World Heritage Coastline. Start at the Geoneedle at Orcombe Point and enjoy miles of stunning walking as the South West Coast path follows 180 million years of geological history.

Perran Sands, just south of Newquay on Cornwall’s North Coast is within Penhale Sands, the largest dune system in the county. A full-time Park Ranger is on hand to lead guided walks through the dunes to explore the flora and fauna (look out for orchids and adders!) or follow the trail to the oratory of St Piran who landed here in the seventh century and reputedly discovered tin – mainstay of the Cornish economy for centuries.

Check out the choice of Haven holiday parks in Wales, whether you’re interested in action packed weekend breaks or a relaxing week away. Kiln Park and Lydstep Beach are both within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park with easy access to a coastline that is rich in wildlife. A cliff top walk offers plenty of opportunities for seal-spotting or a glimpse of the nesting choughs.

Hafan y Mor and Greenacres in North Wales are both within sight of the peaks of Snowdonia for strenuous mountain hikes – although you can always take the steam train up the mountain and walk back down!

In Yorkshire, the Cleveland Way passes through Blue Dolphin Holiday Park and there are some lovely walks to be had around the Norfolk Broads from Wild Duck Holiday Park.

When you’ve taken off your walking boots for the day you’ll find plenty to do on the parks. Golf courses, fishing lakes, tennis, bowling ….Devon Cliffs even boasts a superb state of the art spa, perfect for relaxing muscles exhausted by the coast path.

There are bars, informal restaurants and evening entertainment – or just put your feet up in cosy caravan accommodation with a bottle of wine and a DVD.
