Holiday Village and Campsites

Enjoy fun activities and the great outdoors

Traditional British holiday villages offer fun and entertainment for everyone. Holiday, touring and camping parks are also great family environments with plenty of fun outdoor activities on offer.

Holiday Villages

Centre Parcs Holiday VillageTraditional British holiday villages have been popular for over 40 years. Offering a fun and entertaining environment they continue to attract an ever-growing number of enthusiastic visitors from around the world.

British holiday villages come from an era when international travel was less common and the British public demanded high quality holidays at home. Today they are as popular as ever with both local and foreign visitors.

From the more traditional holiday camps, to the modern climate-controlled sites, holiday villages are a great way of combining accommodation with on-site leisure facilities and entertainment.

British holiday villages welcome all types of visitors and are ideal for families. With pools, sports centres, horse riding, evening entertainment, and many other activities you can’t help but have fun. Many also have a ‘Kids Club’, so Mum and Dad can relax a little more during their stay.

Holiday Villages offer something to suit all ages and interests, and are the perfect environments for doing as much or as little as you like.

Camping

You’ll find a huge variety of sites in Britain, from secluded forest locations to purpose-built parks.

Whatever your preference, if you’re an outdoor enthusiast, you’ve got a fantastic choice. 

Holiday, Touring & Camping parks are excellent for families, and offer great value for money in a friendly environment. You’ll find them both near the coast and in the heart of the countryside. Some parks have caravans or chalets for hire, which are often very spacious, accommodating between two to eight guests. You can also expect all the modern conveniences such as a shower, kitchen and television.

It’s best to bring your own tent if you want to camp, as very few sites have tents for hire. Pitches start from around £5 depending on the facilities and location. Caravans and motor-homes are welcome at all touring parks, which often have connections to water, drainage, electricity and perhaps a TV aerial.

If outdoor pursuits are your thing, or you simply want to relax and enjoy the scenery, a touring or camping holiday will certainly leave you with fun and happy memories.
