Three ways to bring the spirit of the season to your holiday home

I have to say I am a lover of off season holidays, a chance to relax after a busy summer and unwind before the stress that can be Christmas. What better place than a caravan with all mod cons?

Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat…
And since most holiday parks stay open throughout December for caravan owners, there’s just enough time to squeeze in a short break before Christmas – and the closure of the parks for winter.
Follow these tips to make sure your final break in your static caravan in 2013 is a festive one!

Cosy nights around the fire
One of the best things about holiday homes is that they get the whole family in one place. And while you can get a WiFi connection on-park, sometimes it’s nice to go offline and spend time together talking or playing a board game.
So turn your phone off and switch the fire on for a cosy evening eating mince pies, finding out who gets competitive over scrabble and watching the great telly in the run-up to Christmas!

Family walks
It may be cold outside but that doesn’t mean you need to hibernate. Winter walks as a family, wrapped up nice and warm against the cold, can be a lovely way to enjoy the season and spend quality time together.
UK holiday parks are located in the country’s best loved holiday destinations, which also means they’re in close proximity to stunning scenery that can be enjoyed all year round. And whether you go for a winter stroll along the beach at Perran Sands to soak up the crisp sea air or go for a brisk walk around Lake Windermere, you’ll always have your holiday home to return to afterwards for a warm mug of hot chocolate by the fire.

Tasty home-cooked food
Food is at the heart of the festive season so take this chance to do some home-cooking in your caravan. We’re all used to cooking at home but too many of us are used to cooking for convenience rather than flavour.
Stock up on ingredients at the on-park supermarket and make some Christmas favourites, such as mince pies, mulled wine and pigs in blankets in the comfort of your own holiday home kitchen. The ovens in static caravans are just as good as the one you’d have at home, so there’s no limit to what you can make.
And the best part of a winter weekend away is that when it’s over, you still have real Christmas to look forward to!

  1. I totally agree with all of these things - I love spending time outdoors in winter (just dress warmly) and than coming home to a warm house and home cooked food - good times :)
