Have You Discovered UK Holiday Parks?

These self-contained resorts offer caravans, lodges, and sometimes tents or glamping pods. Your family can enjoy a range of facilities including swimming pools, entertainment venues, kids' clubs, and restaurants. They're designed for families looking for a break where everything is on your doorstep!

Holiday parks offer more space and freedom than hotels, such as separate bedrooms, living areas, and your own outdoor space. With the added bonus of on-site amenities and entertainment. They're self-catering too, saving money on dining out.

Going for a UK holiday park means you can forget about stressful airports, and luggage restrictions, and you can pack the car with as many of your home comforts as you like. Plus, you're contributing to the local economy and reducing your carbon footprint.

Pet Friendly Holidays

Cheshire welcomes pets with open arms. You'll find several pet-friendly pubs and eateries, like The Fishpool Inn in Delamere or The Bear's Paw in Warmingham, where pets can join you for a meal. Tips for visiting with pets include bringing their bed for a sense of home and checking in advance for any pet restrictions at attractions.

Is Cheshire a good place to visit ‘off-season’?

Cheshire's charm isn't just for summer. Most holiday parks are open year-round, offering quieter stays and often lower prices off-peak. Winter walks or Christmas markets in Chester are magical. Just pack extra layers!

Will my hot tub be cleaned before we arrive?

Yes, if you've booked a lodge with a hot tub it'll be cleaned and ready for you. They're usually drained, sanitised, and refilled between guests, so you can unwind with peace of mind.

Can we bring our pets to the holiday park?

Many holiday parks in Cheshire are pet-friendly. Always check ahead, as some may have specific pet-friendly units. Remember to bring your pet's bed, food, and bowls to keep them comfy.

How do we book activities, and do they need to be booked in advance?

For activities, it's best to book in advance, especially during peak times. Parks like Manley Mere Adventure Trail offer online booking. Check the park's website or give them a call before your trip to secure your spots.

What's the best way to get around Cheshire from the holiday park?

If you're not driving, check if the park offers a shuttle service. Otherwise, local buses and trains are reliable. For example, from Delamere Lake Sailing & Holiday Park, you can catch a train to Chester or a bus to nearby attractions. Hiring bikes can be a fun way to explore locally.
