Each year Christmas becomes more commercialised and preparations start so early that by the time the big day arrives many of us are exhausted. For many people, Christmas Day has become a routine of opening presents, eating, drinking and watching TV. If this year you are longing to escape from all the pressures of Christmas at home, why not try something different and spend Christmas away in a caravan.
Dozens of campsites across the UK, open throughout the festive period, lay on something extra special in the form of entertainment and activities. At sites like Bosworth Water Park in Leicestershire you can even walk through the woodlands and select your own Christmas tree to make your van festive.
Tattershall Lakes in Lincolnshire is perfect for an active family Christmas. There is masses of space for walking or bike riding around the lakes in the country park and the new Merlin complex has a luxurious on-site indoor heated swimming pool which will be open on Christmas Day. Also if you don’t fancy cooking this year book a meal in the complex, then you can relax and enjoy the Christmas carols and music.
Cofton Country Holidays, set within 80 acres of south Devon countryside, is ideal for families that like plenty of exercise- there is a heated indoor pool with a splash pad area and hydrotherapy loungers, a gym, steam room, sauna, fitness studio, soft play area, playground, sports wall, woodland adventure area plus guests also have the use of five coarse fishing lakes, miles of cycle paths and nature trails.
Of course, if you want to escape from overexcited children then adult only sites like Somers Wood Caravan Park, set in beautiful woodland will provide the tranquillity you desire. Or head north of the border to the Scottish highland for more dramatic scenery.
The modern caravan is designed to be well equipped and insulated for use in all seasons. So more and more people are opting to get away and spend the big day in the peace and quiet of the beautiful UK countryside, whether that is by the coast, in the mountains, on the moors or by a lake.
