On holiday or en vacances, picking perfect parks made easy
LOVERS of Britain’s best holiday parks can now be assured of a similarly high quality experience when they pack their bags for mainland Europe.
That’s because the Best of British parks group has entered into an entente cordiale with its French-based equivalent to signpost the top destinations in both countries.
The link-up with Sunêlia Vacances, says BoB, will give peace of mind to guests on either side of the Channel, and also provide them with booking benefits and incentives.
Both groups are made up of independently-owned holiday parks which must meet stringently applied quality standards in order to gain membership.
BoB offers 57 parks in England, Wales, and Scotland, whilst Sunêlia Vacances has 30 park options in mainly French coastal, countryside and mountain regions.
Members of the groups variously provide touring pitches, glamping units, and the hire of holiday accommodation including luxury lodges, caravans and apartments.
The co-operation pact was signed recently in Bordeaux by senior figures from Sunêlia Vacances and BoB director Tara White who said the venture brought exciting opportunities:
“Many of our visitors enjoy visiting parks in Britain and overseas each year, and we are now in a position to help them ensure a consistently first-class experience,” she said.
“That will apply whether guests opt for a park offering peace and tranquillity as its main attraction, or one with lots of family-friendly facilities for all ages.
“Sunêlia’s parks, like ours, are mostly family-owned enterprises, and reflect the strong pride of the owners in building superb reputations over the years.
“Crucially, members of both groups share the same values when it comes to making hospitality and a welcoming atmosphere among the most memorable features of a stay,” added Tara.
Tara and her husband James manage the Old Oaks Touring Park in Glastonbury which has been in James’s family for over 30 years and boasts many quality awards.
