It’s a very special Cooking in a caravan today, we have one of Haven’s favourite double acts joining us but the question is — can they cook as well as they entertain?
Easter’s fast approaching and we’re all looking forward to some chocolate eggs from the Easter Bunny. But if you’re heading to Devon for the Easter holidays, it would criminal not to clear space in your chocolate-eating schedule for a delicious cream tea. They’re the jewel in the crown of the south west and unbelievably tasty. And to make sure you get the proper cream tea experience when you’re down in Devon, we’ve compiled a shortlist of the best places to get one near our park, Devon Cliffs.
It may not come as surprise to you but at Haven we are passionate about our beaches. So passionate in fact that we are active within the community to help restore, care for and clean up the beaches that surround our parks. 19 of the beaches that are near our parks have been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag Beach award — something we are extremely proud of.
Anyone visiting Devon Cliffs this year?
Why not check out their new scrap musical instruments! Brian O’Brien, the park’s eco-expert tells us all about their new activity.
“The idea came from Hannah, a team member at Starbucks, who had been in a scrap music band. She came up with a lot of suggestions and examples of the types of stuff they used.
I had been developing an area of woodland for families to explore but wanted some interactive things for them to do and this seemed perfect.
After further research I came up with the Xylophone. I found some old metal caravan supports and got my wife, who is very musical, to help me tune them by cutting them to different lengths. The sound is lovely and quite bell-like!
The grounds boys Mark and Tal made the frame and 2 days later they came back with old drainage pipes made into a thwacker, which is played using a flip flop!
Since then loads more team have approached me and before long we should have a Glockenspiel and some metal drums in there too.
The response has been great from all age groups. I had a granddad in there with his grandchildren the other day hopping around on one leg because they had nicked one of his flip flops!
The children love them as you don’t have to be musical to get a good sound out of them!”
It’s great to hear that Devon Cliffs now have even more interactive stuff for families […]
I’m Jack Ashford and I have been going to Devon Cliffs for six years and I feel that I couldn’t go anywhere else ever again!
A Haven Holiday is great to me because you’re close to the beach all the time!
Not forgetting the Seaside Squad, a Haven Holiday just wouldn’t be the same without them!
I’m looking forward to the school Easter holiday next year as my family and me are going to Seashore Holiday Park in Great Yarmouth!
I love the evening entertainment at Haven because there’s Funstars Go Live and the Seaside Squad!
I love having a privilege Plus card as i can get 15% off of everything which means I can buy more Seaside Squad Stuff.
My favourite member of staff at Devon Cliffs is Lee, the security guard. Every time i get to the entrance of Devon Cliffs he always gives me a high 5 or waves and if it’s raining he is always so happy!
I always feel really sad when we have to leave and especially when it’s the end of season!
Can’t wait until June!
