You might not have even considered the idea of holidaying in a static caravan before but it can be the perfect solution for a family holiday – particularly with babies and young children! In this blog, we explore five fantastic benefits of going on holiday in a static caravan.

Get your children to connect with the great outdoors

Holidaying in a caravan is a fantastic way to embrace the countryside, get away from the hassle of everyday life, and spend some time with your little ones. The South West is one of the most beautiful areas in the country so the opportunity to explore its natural beauty should be taken! As babies and toddlers are learning and growing, it’s important for them to spend time lots of time in the outside world. They will experience new sights, smells and sensations and make new discoveries.

No need to worry about the stress of flying abroad


Going abroad always seems like a good idea… that is until you remember the hassle of airports, transfers, long waits and luggage limitations. Add a screaming baby or small child into the mix and things can get very stressful very quickly. With a static caravan, there’s so much less to think about. You can simply pack up the car, drive to your destination, and you’re ready for the holiday.

Save money

When you start a new family, there are plenty of expenses to consider and holidays might not be a priority for you. If you do go on holiday, you might worry about spending money on expensive meals out and overpriced attractions. Well, the greatest attraction of the South West is the beautiful countryside – which is free to view! A static caravan also provides the opportunity for self-catering, meaning you can feed your child in comfort and you don’t have to waste loads of money on expensive meals.

Enjoy the fun and flexibility of a holiday park

Holiday parks are the perfect destination for babies and young children. There are options for entertainment if they need it, but you can also go off to explore and do your own thing. The great thing about caravanning in Devon, Cornwall or Somerset is that the coast is right on your doorstep! You can entertain your baby in the play park or spend hours building sandcastles for them – the opportunities are endless!

The perfect spontaneous holiday destination

If your experience of your caravan holiday is positive, you can even consider buying one. This would allow you to choose holidays when you need them, rather than planning far in advance. Life with a baby or toddler tends to be chaotic and hard to plan so it’s good to know that you have a holiday destination ready-made and waiting for you!
