Going on holiday is never easy, particularly when you have children and pets to think about too. Staycations are becoming more and more popular as there is less hassle and you can take the whole family with you too! Yes, even the dog can go too!
If you are going to holiday at home, then there is only one place for you to go........and that's to the Seaside!! Every holiday should be spent within close proximity to the beach. Whether you are young, or old, everyone likes a beach holiday. Okay, so the weather may not be the same as in Spain or the Canaries, but who wants to spend 4 hours stuck on a plane and in the airport, only to be delayed for several hours?? No, I didn't think you would!
One of the best things about living in England, is that you are never too far away from the seaside. All you need to do is just jump in the car and within a couple of hours you are there! Okay, so it may take a little longer if you are towing a caravan, but there's nothing better than being the first one to be able to spot the sea!
The hardest part is choosing where you want to go. Do you go North, South, East or West!? Well how about the North East Coast. Nothing beats a holiday along the North East Coastline (and yes I am biased as I do live here!) But once you have paid this part of the Coast a visit, you will never want to go anywhere else!! Ranging from places like Grimsby up to Berwick Upon Tweed, there are plenty of seaside towns and villages to choose from for that perfect stress free family getaway.
There are plenty of walks along the beautiful coastline to more amazing seaside villages, all of which have amazing stories to tell and are worth a day trip to see.
This part of the coastline is also known as the Jurassic coast and is the ideal place to come fossil hunting! We here at Whitby Holiday Park are actually situated in an area known locally as Saltwick Bay which is well known for fossils. We have direct access to the beach where people spend hours hunting for fossils. But be warned, keep an eye on that tide, as once it starts to come in, it comes in fast! Just a short 5 and a half mile walk along the Cleveland Way footpath, which runs along the cliffs, is the small, but very popular fishing village of Robin Hoods Bay. With its cobbled streets and little knick knack shops, this is another beautiful village that you must see whilst here.
One of the best things about having a staycation is that once you have arrived, all you need to do is unpack and relax! If you are lucky enough to be staying with us here at Whitby Holiday Park then why not unwind and relax with a nice cold pint in our Family Club House (which is open most nights from 6pm onwards). We also have entertainment on most nights too, ranging from bingo to game shows and even visiting cabaret acts. We also hold a kids club for a couple of hours on weekends and Bank Holidays (so you can even lose the kids for a couple of hours!) And don't worry about having to leave your beloved four legged friend stuck in the caravan as we allow dogs in our Club too!
Our static caravans that we hire out are like a home away from home. Most of them come with a double room, a twin room and a pull out bed in the lounge. They all have a bathroom which has a shower, sink and toilet so the only thing you need to worry about is who is going to use it first! They all have their own kitchen facilities too, so if you decide that you want to cook, you can do (if not we have our very own cafe on site which does takeaway!) We do also provide all of our static caravans with their own Tv which comes with Freesat and a DVD player, perfect for those cosy nights in! We even have specific caravans where you can bring your beloved four legged friend with you on holiday too! We even provide a bowl, blanket, and a few little treats for them to make them feel at home too!
As well as having a Family Club House on site, we also have a cafe and shop on site too, which provides most essentials for a caravan holiday. So if you really don't want to go anywhere, you don't have too as everything is provided for you!
We really are the perfect stress free holiday, and pretty much right on your doorstep! We have stunning views of both the moors and sea, both of which are within easy access of the Park!
So when it comes to that time of year again when you are starting to plan your next holiday away, why not pick somewhere that little bit closer to home and stress free!
