In short, there is everything here you need for a perfect family holiday as there is something here to meet every ones tastes. Family holiday parks in Scotland are situated across the country both in the countryside and by the sea. They offer accommodation in static caravans; lodges and some have space for touring caravans and camping and are a perfect way for a family to spend some time away.
What About the Accommodation Choices?
Let’s start off with the static caravans.
These are the most common form of accommodation at the holiday parks and not only do they give you comfort, they also provide you with a really cost effective holiday. The self-catering accommodation can sleep anywhere between two and six people in the majority of holiday parks, but sometimes you will find there are larger caravans that can sleep eight to ten.
The cost of renting the static caravan can vary according to the time of year and the type of accommodation you choose, but there should be something to meet most people’ budgets whenever you choose to getaway.
Looking for something different, maybe a holiday lodge?
The holiday lodges are something you may also like to consider for a family holiday. Usually you will find the lodges are on quieter park locations that have fewer facilities than the main holiday parks. However, on some locations you will have a mix of static caravans and holiday lodges, so you can take the pick of the accommodation that most suites you.
The lodges are fully equipped for a self catering break just as the static caravans. You will not be short of creature comforts with a fully equipped kitchen area, living room with comfortable furniture, bedrooms which can be twin, doubles and bunk beds. Outside you often find a veranda with stunning views and you can even book a family break in one of the lodges with hot tubs.
Let’s take a look at the facilities!
The parks feature lots of things to do such as an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a play area, a kids club, crazy golf, a bar with live entertainment and various eateries. They provide a safe environment for the children to play in so you can have a relaxing time and not be worrying about what they are doing. The kids clubs are the ideal way for you to have a break while the kids make new friends and enjoy a range of activities. There are clubs for all ages on many of the family park locations and loads of resort programmes including water and land based activities.
If you fancy a day off from the cooking then you can always enjoy a snack in the bar and in the evening enjoy a meal in the restaurant and then head on to the entertainment venue for some family entertainment. Have no fear though, if you fancy a quiet time away then there are holiday parks that are perfect for simply relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet with a few less facilities.
