Parks declare two-month extension as Brits holiday on
PARK HOLIDAYS UK says it will carry on for eight weeks beyond its usual closing date this year to allow families to enjoy November and December breaks.
The group is keeping open 13 of its most popular parks until the week before Christmas following a “deluge of demand” for a final getaway of the year.
Park Holidays UK director Tony Clish says that the end of the October school half-term would normally signal the parks’ winter hibernation.
“Brits have been given back their holiday freedom this year, and we’ve welcomed more families than ever in our thirty year history,” said Tony.
“But it’s been obvious from the number of enquires we’ve received that many people want to holiday on through to the end of the season.
“Now they will have the chance to do just that in a fully insulated holiday caravan or luxury lodge with central heating and double glazing to ensure everyone remains snug.
“Although many of our facilities won’t be opening, and others will be operating on reduced hours, winter can be a fantastic time for a cosy break, and to top up the batteries.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, and I think we all deserve a last hurrah before winter proper kicks in and we all hunker down under our duvets,” he added.
Short breaks are proving especially popular, says Tony, and prices reflect the fact that the group’s usual entertainment programme will be off the menu.
Long weekends start from £131.00 for six people staying three nights in a fully equipped holiday home, rising to over £400.00 for a pampering break in a luxury lodge.
Park Holidays UK operates 40-plus parks throughout England and Scotland, and Tony says their beautiful locations are well worth an out-of-season visit.
“Roads, towns and visitor attractions are all less busy, and you can enjoy gorgeous coast and countryside walks with the feeling that you’ve got it all to yourself.
“It can be fascinating seeing familiar places in a new light and clothed in their often spectacular winter colours,” said Tony.
