Forget your classic bucket and spade (actually, don’t go that far, they’re quite handy for holidays by the sea) instead, why not throw another bucket into the mix? A 2020 Haven bucket list.
With so many exciting developments happening across our parks this year, there are plenty of amazing brand-new activities to try, as well as some of the much-loved favourites. Ahead of your holiday with us, here are eight top things to do at Haven during 2020:
1. Make yourself at home
Cosy caravans, adventurous Geo Domes or swish beach houses – we’ve got the lot. And whatever your choice of accommodation, you can count on your holiday home having everything you need for a comfy stay. Put your feet up indoors, or stretch your legs outside, your holiday is what you want it to be, so most importantly, do it your way and make yourself at home!
2. Be entertained in our new state of the art venues
We recently introduced our brand-new Marina Bar and Stage to Hopton Holiday Village and are well underway in bringing the same new developments to Lakeland, Greenacres and Seashore later this year. With state-of-the-art giant screens, the venues will be the place to go for the very best entertainment, available both night and day. From interactive games to musical extravaganzas, you can be sure there’s always something going on and trust us, you won’t want to miss it!
3. Get creative in one our workshops
Whether they’re the next budding artist, a chef in the making or simply want to let their creative juices flow, we have a host of activities for kids to get stuck into and they’re perfect for when the traditional British weather takes a turn. If it’s delicious treats you’re after, then Haven Junior Chefs and Haven Mini Chefs will help kids bake up a yummy snack, whilst Pic ‘n’ Paint Pottery ensures you’ll have a brand-new piece of home décor for display. It’s not a family holiday unless you take some precious self-made memorabilia with you!
4. Take on a new challenge at one of our Adventure Villages
During 2019 we added jaw-dropping Adventure Villages to our Craig Tara and Hafan Y Mor holiday parks and this year, it’s the turn of Caister-on-Sea and Golden Sands. From high ropes and climbing walls, to bungee trampolines, segways and more, there are plenty of activities for young adventurers to get stuck into. And for those that are really brave, why not take on exhilarating activity ‘The Jump at Craig Tara and Caister and Golden Sands later this year.
5. Suss out the swimming pools
The unwritten rule of a British holiday, you can never go swimming too many times. Whether it’s indoor, outdoor, flumes or splash zones, there’s plenty of fun to be had at our pools – and the best part? It’s free! But if that’s not enough to float your boat, then maybe our splash activities will. We have a whole host of pool-friendly activities for you to get stuck into including Aqua Inflatable, Aqua Jets and even Pool Kayaking.
6. Take a break from cooking
Whilst our mini markets are packed full of home from home essentials, there’s nothing quite like taking time out from cooking to enjoy it with the family – whether that’s at one of our restaurants or snuggled up in the caravan with a park takeaway. From classic fish and chips to traditional pub favourites, there’s something to suit every mood and every occasion, giving you a much deserved break and quality time with your loved ones.
7. Go for a stroll along the coast
It wouldn’t be a classic British getaway if you didn’t explore the nearest beach would it? No matter what one of our parks you’re visiting, you can guarantee the sea is never too far away. Take off your shoes and dip your toe in the water or pull up a pew and watch the world go by; if one thing’s for sure, there’s nothing quite like the freedom of the coast and our parks sure have some stunning views.
8. Don’t worry, be app-y
And last but not least, be sure to download our ‘What’s On’ app to see what’s happening on park during your stay! The app lets you create your own personalised holiday diary filled with all of your favourite activities and entertainment to ensure you never miss a beat.
