Haven Holidays Review

In the last 13 years I have become an expert Haven Holiday goer. My children love caravan holidays. Whilst it's not quite so relaxing for the parents as an all inclusive in Spain it definitely has its charms. My children love the characters, play areas, swimming pools & arcades that Haven offers so we keep going back. Caravan holidays are also great for large family groups and caters for everyone from babies to grandparents.

We have sampled 10 sites and had some amazing holidays.

We've been to -

Weymouth Bay
Devon Cliffs
Golden Sands Mablethorpe 
Combe Haven Hastings 
The Orchards Clacton on Sea 
Burnham on Sea
Church Farm Bognor Regis 
Wild Duck Great Yarmouth
Rockley Park 

My top 3 sites so far are.........
Rockley Park
Church Farm Bognor Regis
Wild Duck Norfolk 

Treehouse area at Wild Duck
Church Farm was our favourite and we've been twice but Wild Duck pipped it this year.   It has such a unique atmosphere and the main entertainment complex is lovely. The layout is great & I loved the woodland feel & water features.  It helped we had good weather so we enjoyed the outdoor pool & the kids loved the sand pit play area attached to The Sitting Duck (pub bit). My only minor grumble would be the club house got very busy so seating a large group was difficult. On this particular holiday we went as a family of 14! I would highly recommend this site.  The other plus point is it was quick to get to many attractions nearby & a lovely beach.  We had a lovely caravan which appeared brand new & the site was immaculate & included 3 separate outdoor play areas which the kids loved.

Hope you've enjoyed this post & it's inspired you to try a Haven Holiday site next year.

If you do go remember these few essentials -

Washing up liquid

Tea towel & sponge/scourer pad

Toilet roll

Tea, coffee, juice, milk

We always take breakfast bits so the kids can be feed & you haven't got to get dressed at the crack of dawn to go anywhere

2p's for the arcade slot machines

In colder months extra blankets, hot water bottle  (brilliant to warm children's beds) and possibly a portable fan heater.
