Remember when you were growing up and the holiday park or complex always seemed gigantic? That’s how it feels when you stay at Lakeland in Cumbria (even as a grownup). It’s not because the park is particularly huge (it’s fairly big) – it’s because it has the entire Lake District as a back garden. I fell in love with the Lakes a long time ago. And any of the 14 million people who travel there this year will probably give you a different reason why the area has captured their heart. Here’s a list of my favourites …
Can pigs fly? What came first the chicken or the egg? Can Gorilla’s ride on a Segway? These are the great questions of the world and sadly we can’t answer the first two but the last one?? Well that’s a definite yes as we have seen it for ourselves on our recent visit to Devon Cliffs to see all the new activities Haven had to offer this year — we even brought back proof!
We really are spoilt here at Haven HQ! Someone had to travel to our Caister park in Norfolk to film the new videos with our Funstars and with a lot of persuading we packed our bags (actually that’s a lie — we jumped at the chance!) The ‘we’ in question was myself and Madi, as well as Marcus from the Studio. It was our mission to film some exciting videos for our Haven Holidays YouTube Channel and Caister, with its beautiful golden beach, beautiful surroundings and more than entertaining entertainments team, was the perfect option!
It’s finally here. During the storms of Winter, with the short days and never ending rain, we never thought we’d finally see the day when the sun finally made it’s appearance. Now I know what your thinking we’re getting all over excited here at Haven HQ but it’s hard not to, what with all the incredible pictures we are being sent of you lot enjoying yourselves at our parks! We want to get everyone excited too so we’ve asked one of our favourite Green Team members to talk us through the signs of Spring - we promise it will make you want blow the dust off the gardening gloves and get outside!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again — you lot love the Funstars! So as part of our Funstar Friday we have asked one of our Funstars to give us all the back stage gossip about the Day in the Life of a Funstar. We caught up with Nathan who has been a loyal Funstar of ours for over two years now and we’ve roped him in to doing a monthly post for us, giving us all an insight to the weird and wonderful lives of the entertainment team — so without further adue let me introduce you all to Nathan! — Helen x
