Caravan Holidays See a Surge in Bookings as Campers Go West, Says Haven

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire – Sept. 13, 2010) – The West of England was the place to go for touring holidays this summer, according to a survey by leading caravan holidays operator, Haven Holidays.

The most popular regions for people on caravanning and camping holidays have been Wales, Blackpool and Cumbria, with Haven bookings in those areas reported as being up on previous bookings by a whopping 15%.

This surge westward for camping and caravan holidays is in contrast to the South East bookings for luxury breaks in sleek holiday homes with Haven. The most popular region for these platinum holidays was Kent, Sussex and Dorset – a shift away from Devon and Cornwall which have traditionally been the most sought-after holiday destinations.

Haven has 23 great locations for tourers in England, Scotland and Wales and they have recently enjoyed a soaring summer. So, to celebrate their success with increased bookings for 2010, they are offering great value holidays throughout September from as little as £7 per family per night for a four-night break.

This highly competitive price enables families to enjoy camping at one of their holiday parks while having the convenience of amenities and facilities on hand, which the operator recently spent £40 million on improving.

Haven has four stunning locations for tourers in Wales including Kiln Park near Tenby, Greenacres at Porthmadog, Hafan y Mor at Pwllheli and Presthaven Sands near Prestatyn in north Wales.

It’s also operates one of the biggest holiday parks near Blackpool, Marton Mere in an idyllic spot beside a nature reserve, and the company’s Lakeland Leisure Park in Cumbria is ideally situated to explore the Lake District and enjoy the beautiful Morecambe Bay.

Camping and caravanning is not only a popular choice of holiday these days for those wanting to get close to nature or go on fishing break; it has become a trendy hobby with young people, families and even celebrities getting involved in the ‘glamping’ craze. Now that plenty more people are discovering how much fun it is, there are lots more bookings so if you want a caravan or camping holiday you need to act quick and make sure you have a spot for a perfect touring break!
