Greetings bargain hunters! Here’s our monthly roundup of the best deals and discounts available at the UK’s caravan holiday parks for April 2019 and the Easter holidays.
First up, it’s Hoseasons which has a bigger choice than any other site we know of, as it provides bookings and discounts for most of the big name holiday parks and many of the smaller family-owned sites. You can easily browse all reduced Hoseasons holidays for April/Easter 2019. We’ve ranked all the offers by the percentage you save from the standard price, but make sure the ‘standard price’ is good value.
To save you a few seconds, we’ve set up easy searches for
Several other big names in the UK caravan holiday market are also offering last minute deals and discounts. Haven is perhaps the best known name, with more than 30 holiday parks, most of which are in prime seaside locations.
You can Search for all of Haven's current discounts and offers on this page, which allows you to narrow it down depending on which part of the country you want to visit.
They’re advertising 'Easter holidays from £299' but it does vary according to how long you’re staying for and in which park.
There's a top 10 guide on our Haven page, but some of the most highly rated ones with customers include:
Meanwhile, Away Resorts are offering Easter short breaks 'from £122' or last minute Spring breaks from £69. Sure, the advertised price is often limited to specific dates at a specific park, but there were some good discounts when we checked.
Park Holidays focus on the south of England with parks across Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, Sussex, Kent, Essex and Suffolk. They were offering last minute Park Holidays bargain breaks for April/Easter 2019 in various locations
At the posher end of the market is Aria Resorts which is offering up to 30% off with last minute deals for Easter 2019. Their parks are in Yorkshire, Cornwall, Isle of Wight and Devon. If you go for one of their Isle of Wight parks (and why wouldn’t you) then you can also get up to 50% off the Isle of Wight ferry.
We’ve not had much luck looking for Center Parcs discounts for their five UK resorts at Easter 2019. You’ll find that Center Parcs UK rarely offer big savings. However, those who fancy a bit of adventure might consider Center Parcs Europe which runs separately. They offer up to 20% off if you book at least two months in advance and up to 25% (ish) off last minute holidays.
Back in the UK, you can get 5% off Shorefield Holidays with code M218 (this one is valid until 14/12/19 so we’ll keep promoting it…). They are also running a promotion of £132 for a Monday to Wednesday break at Shorefield or Oakdene holiday parks. The offer is only available outside of school holidays. Shorefield operate a handful of parks across Dorset, New Forest and Hampshire.
If you’re looking to get away pronto, it’s worth taking a look at John Fowler holidays. They often have good last minute deals on holidays but only for breaks which are starting within the next 7 days. They’re also offering £50 off Easter breaks in 2019 (valid on short breaks, 5th to 22nd April). Similarly, Parkdean has quite a few last minute caravan holidays, including some during the Easter holidays. They’re generally available from a couple of weeks before the start of the holiday.
March 2019 is a pretty good time for a cheap caravan or lodge holiday in the UK.
Sure, the weather is iffy and you’ll be looking for at least a couple of rainy day activities, but accommodation availability is high and there are no school holidays to bump up the prices. Bear in mind that some tourist attractions in the UK don’t open until the Easter holiday (i.e. early April this year) so you might need to think creatively for days out.
Here’s our rundown of the best discounts and last minute deals available for March 2019:
Hoseasons is a good place to start your search, as they provide bookings for many of the big name holiday companies as well as many independent holiday parks. You probably won’t find a bigger range of caravan park holidays anywhere else and you can search by price and other factors quite easily.
You can browse all reduced Hoseasons holidays for March 2019, which we’ve ranked by biggest % discount. It’s quite easy to narrow things down by adding in how long you want to stay for and so on. We’ve picked out some of the most popular searches, including discounted Hoseasons holidays in the Westcountry (Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset), Wales or the North of England (Lake District, Blackpool and Yorkshire).
In some cases you’ll find about 25% off standard prices.
If that doesn’t bring any joy, I’d have a look at the ‘last minute’ deals on offer from the big name holiday park companies. You can search for all of Haven's last minute deals.
Haven has more than 30 holiday parks in the UK, covering pretty much every popular holiday resort. I usually advise people that reviews are Haven are a little bit better than some of their competitors, and their prices are subsequently a little higher.
Haven are currently advertising March 2019 last minute weekend breaks from £99 or March 2019 last minute midweek breaks from £79 in standard caravans or £119 in prestige caravans
If you’re new to this business, you might want to read our guide to 6 ways to save money on Haven holidays. You’ll find the best prices are available if you’re able to rent a large caravan and fill it up, rather than booking two smaller units.
Other big names which offer last minute holiday park bookings include Away Resorts which is offering Last minute Spring breaks from £69. That offer is running until May 31st 2019. They’ve got six holiday parks in the UK which are scattered across the country.
If you want a holiday somewhere in the south or south west of England, then you might like to look at the Last minute Park Holidays bargain breaks for March 2019. They’re not as well known as Haven, but they’ve got 30 parks in popular locations such as Devon and Dorset. They’re also offering £30 free food and drink with midweek breaks outside of school holidays.
Aria Resorts is another name in the holiday park market which offers Up to 30% off with last minute deals. Their parks are generally at the posher end of the market and they’re currently redeveloping a number of sites on the Isle of Wight. You can also get up to 50% off the Isle of Wight ferry if you book accommodation with them
John Fowler holidays covers Devon, Somerset and Cornwall and they have a couple of decent deals at the moment. You can get 20% off breaks in March 2019 (no discount code, just go via this link). If you want to get away in the next week, you can browse through their last minute deals.
Shorefield Holidays has a promo code at the moment which is 5% off Shorefield Holidays with code M218 (valid until 14/12/19). Not a huge discount I admit, but every little helps!
Finally in this roundup, there is Parkdean Resorts which has last minute caravan holidays some of which have a decent discount.
Haven is probably the best known name in the UK caravan holiday park market. Their 40 parks are ideal for families looking for a busy holiday with indoor swimming pools, places to eat onsite and easy access to beaches.
Many of their parks get better reviews than their rivals, but they can also be a bit more expensive (based on the price comparisons we've done).
Here are 6 ways to save money on Haven holiday parks
1. Don’t arrive on a Saturday
Unsurprisingly, most of us want to arrive on Saturday for a week’s holiday. However, if you can avoid their busiest changeover day then you can make a decent saving.
For example, a week staying at Haven’s Seaview Holiday Park in Dorset in August 2019 in a standard caravan was £1034 when we checked, if you arrived on a Saturday. However, if you arrived on the Friday before it was only £899, a saving of £135.
You’ll still get a seven day holiday, it’s just not as convenient for people working Monday to Friday.
2. Travel to a Haven holiday park up north
In our (limited) price comparison, we found that Haven’s best holiday parks in the north of England and in Scotland are generally cheaper than their best holiday parks in the South of England. Location seems to be more of a factor than facilities and reviews.
There are exceptions of course, but we picked out 10 of the best Haven holiday parks for our guide and found that 3 of the top 4 cheapest were Seton Sands in Scotland, Thornwick Bay in Yorkshire and Lakeland Leisure Park in the Lake District.
Meanwhile, 3 of the 4 most expensive were Littlesea Holiday Park in Dorset, Devon Cliffs in Devon and Perran Sands in Cornwall.
During August the difference between the cheapest and most expensive can be more than £400 for a family of four.
3. Cosy up and fill up a caravan
This one is not for everyone, but a family of four will make a significant saving if they share an eight berth caravan rather than booking two caravans for four people.
For example, you’ll pay £2068 for two caravans for four people at Haven’s Seaview Holiday Park in Dorset in August 2019. An eight berth caravan meanwhile will cost you £1258 (and it was actually a higher grade of accommodation - searches carried out in December 2018).
That means each family will pay £629 for a week rather than £1034, a saving of more than £400.
But is it practical?
Well, in the example above, a four person caravan has two bedrooms whilst a four berth caravan has three bedrooms meaning that a couple of people will end up sleeping in the lounge. I guess you’d need to know people pretty well to avoid a week of awkward situations. Also bear in mind that an eight berth caravan only has one shower, so you might not get everyone ready until about lunchtime.
One slightly more practical option is to invite a couple of grandparents, as the difference between a two bedroom and three bedroom caravan is generally only a couple of hundred pounds.
4. Book Haven early for the best choice and price
Generally, you’ll find the best deals are available if you book long in advance, rather than if you wait for a ‘last minute bargain’. The cheaper accommodation at popular Haven parks is sometimes sold out months in advance.
For example, when we searched for Lydstep Beach Holiday Park in December 2018 for holidays in August 2019, we found that many of the ‘standard’ caravans were already sold out. As a result, you’re left with the ‘deluxe’ and ‘prestige’ options which are more expensive.
Presumably quite a lot of people are booking their holidays before they’ve even got home and unpacked.
When I checked they were also doing a price promise, along the lines of: 'If prior to your holiday start date, you see your holiday at a lower price, please contact us and we will apply any adjustment to your booking if the price remains available. Subject to availability.'
5. Check Haven's offers page regularly
Always take a quick look at Haven's offers pages before you book. These aren't generally discount codes and promo codes, but are discounted rates around certain dates. You'll find they offer things like 25% or 50% off standard prices, or fixed price deals for midweek breaks.
Most of the deals are aimed at getting people to book outside of the school holidays but it's always worth a look, even if you are fixed to certain dates.
6. Try camping and touring at a Haven holiday park
OK, I know what you're thinking...but bear with me.
About half of Haven's holiday parks offer touring and camping, which means you can bring a tent or your own caravan. The advantage is that you still get to use all the onsite facilities, including swimming pools, kids clubs and so on.
When we checked, a week at Perran Sands in Cornwall in August 2019 was £1137 for 2 adults and 2 children in the cheapest caravan available. Meanwhile, a week in a tent at Perran Sands for four people was £330, a saving of more than £800.
It's one to consider during peak summer season when the weather is better and the difference in price is most significant.
Torquay offers Britain’s best value seaside parking whilst Brighton is the most expensive according to a new study.
Holidayparkguru.co.uk compared prices of parking for four hours in council car parks in 10 of Britain's busiest resorts and found that Brighton was more than four times the price of Torquay.
Most resorts ranged from £3 to £6 for four hours in the car parks nearest to the seafront during the summer, but some South coast spots charge far more.
Price for 4 hours parking:
1. Torquay - £3
=2. Skegness - £4
=2 Shanklin - £4 (from April 2018)
4. Weymouth -£4.50
5. Scarborough - £4.60
6. Great Yarmouth - £5.20
7. Blackpool - £5.50
8. Newquay - £6.30
9. Bournemouth - £10
10. Brighton - £13
Robert Lane from Holidayparkguru.co.uk said
"There's a huge disparity in what councils charge for the prime parking spots along Britain's coastline. You can have half a day at the seaside for a pound an hour or less in parts of Devon or on the Isle of Wight. On the other hand, four hours parked near the beach in Brighton this summer costs the same as parking at East Midlands Airport"
"My advice if you are visiting Brighton or Bournemouth is to park a short distance from the seafront. Unlike most resorts on the list, prices vary hugely depending on which car park you choose. If you’re willing to walk for 20 minutes you’ll pay £6 instead of £13 in Brighton. It’s the same in Bournemouth – if you can manage a 5 minute walk you’ll pay £4 instead of a tenner”
The locations of the top 10 were based on a GB Tourism study comparing visitor numbers at seaside resorts. The study looked for the price during the day in summer in the car park nearest to the sea.

We usually visit the Isle of Wight for our holidays, as it provides free accommodation and babysitting thanks to my mother. However, we broke from tradition to try out Cheddar Woods Resort and Spa in Somerset at half term.
After an everlasting journey down the M5 we were pleased to find we’d been given a prime position at the far end of the site. Usually that would mean you’re next to the bins and the maintenance vehicles but in this case it meant we had an elevated view across the Mendip Hills towards Glastonbury Tor. It also meant we didn’t have any neighbours on one side and that we weren’t near to the restaurant and playground so didn’t have to put up with noise from other people’s children.
The lodge was modern and had everything we needed, including a dishwasher, tumble dryer and washing machine which played jolly tunes when it was finished. There were four televisions, which seemed a bit excessive along with outdoor furniture which looked pleasant, though were unlikely to be used in February.
The complex at the bottom of the hill was very smart with a Brewers’ Fayre-esque restaurant along with a skittles alley, swimming pool, sauna and a small playground. It was certainly the sort of place which is a bit posher than most caravan parks, so it’s not one for our cheap holiday parks guide. Having said that, I thought it was good value at around £700 for a week for our three bedroom lodge (August is more like £1600).
Needless to say, it rained for a couple of days but we managed to coincide these with trips to see relatives in Somerset. The children happily played with Lego and plastic horses all day with second-cousins they rarely see, whilst we drank coffee and rested our heads on the kitchen table.
Despite being in Cheddar we only had a fleeting visit to the Gorge. Mrs Guru and I stared with admiration as we drove through, whilst the younger members of our party either slept or refused to look up from the CBeebies App.
On our first sunny day we applied to remortgage our house before heading to Longleat Safari Park. We spent a happy couple of hours on the adventure playground and with the penguins before heading off on the Safari. It took some time to persuade our four year old that the rhino wasn’t going to charge at the car and we just about got round before the 1 year old began screaming.
On the other two days when we had a bit of sunshine we went to Weston Super Mare, which was a much large place than I remembered from my visit some years previous. The Pier was gutted by fire 10 years ago but has been rebuilt into a headache inducing wonderland with a thousand clankity clank noises competing with each other. I’m sure my father would have described it as a special kind of torture, but we enjoyed throwing 2p coins into the machines until a gold coloured piece of tat fell out.
Besides the arcade machines, the Grand Pier has plenty to do now, with several small rides and a restaurant with great views out to sea. Some reviewers complain about the £1 you have to pay to go onto the Pier although I was happy to pay it after seeing so many piers slowly rot into the sea. I imagine such reviewers would have steam coming out of their ears at the Longleat ticket booth.
So far on Holiday Park Guru I've only attempted to do comparisons for a handful of locations (Devon, Cornwall, Dorset, Wales and the Isle of Wight).
My longer term plan is to spread my caravan shaped wings a bit and explore places such as the Lake District, Northumberland, Norfolk and Yorkshire to help people pick the best holiday parks, based on price, location and facilities.
But which of the holiday locations that we've covered so far has the most to offer for tourists? To attempt a vaguely fair comparison I decided to look at how many attractions each county has, in relation to its size. Wales is obviously larger than the Isle of Wight but you aren't likely to drive from Rhyl to Swansea for a day trip. A high concentration of attractions is more important than a high number spread over a huge area.
So, the fairest way I could think to do this was to look at the number of attractions listed on TripAdvisor. I'm sure there are flaws in this, as you do get rogue shops and other non-attractions appearing on TripAdvisor as an attraction. However, I'm hoping it will even out across all the locations.
First up is Devon, which has (according to TripAdvisor) 825 attractions. I'm not inclined to sift through them all to work out which are legitimate as I was hoping to get to bed in six hours time. Devon is 2590 square miles, which there is an attraction for every 3.1 square miles.
Honestly, I've no idea if that's good or bad before we look at the rest so let's plough on with a comparison to local rivals Cornwall.
Well, according to TripAdvisor you'll find 659 things to do in Cornwall across a land mass of 1376 square miles, which means there is an attraction for every two square miles in Cornwall - significantly more than Devon.
OK, how about Dorset? TripAdvisor reckons there are 437 things to do in Dorset and the county is 1024 square miles, so that puts it somewhere between Devon and Cornwall with an attraction for every 2.3 square miles.
Let's see how Wales compares, which I admit is a whole different kettle of fish to a single English county...
As you might expect, the wheels fall off this flimsy comparison at this point as TripAdvisor doesn't bunch all of Wales into one. Instead it gives the number of attractions per county.
Nevermind, I will move on and pretend this was just an English comparison.
Finally, my beloved Isle of Wight. *He nervously changes tabs*
According to TripAdvisor (as I keep repeating) there are 184 attractions on the Isle of Wight, with a land mass of 146 square miles. So, there is an attraction for every 0.8 square miles.
OK, so I admit the Isle of Wight is small and I was kind of hoping that the result would go this way (as it was my hunch) but that's a pretty sensational victory. I'm certainly biased, but I encourage you to do the comparison yourself and see if you can find an English county with more attractions per square mile than the Isle of Wight.
Sure, you can start arguing about the size of attractions etc...but let me have my moment.
So, we've decided that we're going to do an annual price comparison of holiday parks in the Westcountry. Here's the press release for the first year, with details of how we worked it all out at the bottom of the page.
A new study has found Devon is the cheapest county in the Westcountry for a family summer holiday, with regional rivals Cornwall in second place.
The comparison by Holiday Park Guru looked at the cost of a week’s holiday in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset, comparing accommodation in caravan holiday parks, attraction entrance fees and driving distance for visitors.
The total cost for Devon was £673 for a week's holiday for four, compared to £812 in Cornwall, £817 in Dorset and £825 in Somerset.
Robert Lane from Holiday Park Guru said:
“We often hear about holidays in August being a rip-off but it’s certainly possible to have a week away in the Westcountry on a budget. All four counties had plenty of highly-rated free attractions but Devon and Cornwall had the cheapest holiday park accommodation. Several Devon holiday parks were less than £20 per person, per night even in peak season. Cornwall wasn’t far behind but the extra mileage helped bump up the price.”
The study looked for a week’s holiday in August 2017 for a family of four, staying at a caravan holiday park and arriving on a Saturday. An average price was taken from the five cheapest holiday parks which had availability, as of late May 2017.
It also included the cost of a family ticket to the five highest rated attractions in each county, according to TripAdvisor. Many of the highest rated attractions were free including The Lizard and Kynance Cove in Cornwall, Sidmouth’s Donkey Sanctuary, Bournemouth Beach in Dorset and Wells Cathedral in Somerset.
Car journeys were for a return journey to the county capital (Exeter, Dorchester, Truro and Taunton) from London and Manchester, with an average figure being calculated.

Notes to editors:
Holiday Park Guru is an independent guide to holiday parks in England and Wales.
Methodology: We searched for a week’s holiday with Hoseasons, Haven, Park Holidays, Breakfree Holidays and Park Resorts. Searches were carried out in late May for self catering in holiday park caravans for a family of 2 adults and 2 children (aged 10 and 12) from Saturday 12th August 2017 or arriving on a Saturday either side. We averaged the top five cheapest accommodations available for each county (we used the ‘mean’ average). Attractions were calculated by looking at the cost of entrance for two adults and two children (aged 10 and 12) at the five highest rated attractions, according to TripAdvisor in late May 2017. We chose the on-the-day price and we didn’t include parking, discount vouchers, optional gift aid or mileage to the attractions. We assumed visitors didn’t have National Trust Membership. We calculated fuel costs by looking at a return car journey from central London and central Manchester to the county town, averaging 35 MPG with petrol costing 117 pence per litre.
Family holidays are tense.
I don't mean a family holiday with your spouse and children (although they have their moments).
I mean those family holidays with grandparents, cousins, uncles and aunts. They are great fun but they are inevitably tricky when you realise everyone does holidays differently.
We went to Devon a little while ago with my wife's family, including a total of three families.
The main point of contention was the one before we had even booked.
I am very much of the opinion that hotels and toddlers do not mix. We've had the odd night at a Lenny Henry themed hotel off a motorway to break up an intolerable long journey but the thought of a week in a hotel with a little one or two doesn't appeal.
Our toddler’s eating schedule is an hour or two earlier than full sized people’s with breakfast in the early hours, lunch instead of elevenses and an evening meal at about 4.30 or 5pm. Decent hotels try their best to accommodate families but you can hardly ask the chef to get up an hour earlier to get you some porridge which probably won’t be eaten anyway.
Our main issue is the risk of being publicly exposed as parents whose children aren’t always perfectly behaved. What if the little one decides to deliberately decorate the hotel carpet with honey or face dive into her yogurt? Do you tell her off and make a scene or keep quiet and appear to be undisciplined parents?
And then there’s the sleeping arrangements which in a hotel usually involve piling everyone into the same room and regressing to the first few months of their lives where you counted down the days until you could put them in their own room without feeling guilty.
In a hotel I would spend the night stiff as a board and playing on my phone under the duvet, terrified that if I fell asleep I would break wind or shout in my sleep and wake everyone up.
No, I’d much rather stick to the freedom to choose meal times that suit us and sleeping arrangements which enable at least a reasonable chance of rest.
And so we agreed to split into two parties with two families staying in a hotel and us in a nearby holiday park. We chose a basic site near Sidmouth with a set of swings and a field, rather than a big park with flumes and bingo. Personally, I prefer the peace and quiet that comes from quieter parks, but there is something to be said for onsite facilities if it starts to rain or you want a low hassle holiday.
The holiday itself was much less tense than I was expecting. We took turns to choose attractions around Devon, compromised on mealtimes and spent a couple of days doing our own thing.
I’m sure we could have managed most of that in a hotel, but I think I’ll leave it a few more years, just in case.
A little while ago I saw some sweeping shots of the Pembrokeshire Coast in Wales on one of those BBC Sunday night programmes. I can't remember if it was Countryfile or Coast or Strictly but the views were spectacular.
I turned to my wife and commented that I'd love to walk the coastline when the children were old enough to not require reins on clifftops.
A few days later I was discussing this with my mother who reminded me that we had spent a week walking the Pembrokeshire Coastal Path when I was nine. She explained that I had complained for the whole week that I was having to carry my own bag. I sensed there was a slight resentment in her tone, despite the passing of time.
The pieces gradually fell into place and I started to recall the three memories I have of the holiday.
Firstly, I remember eating some Kendal mint cake whilst sitting on a rock.
Secondly, I remember playing table tennis in some sort of self-catering accommodation. I'm afraid I can't remember who won, so it was probably my brother.
Finally - and most vividly - there was the Subbuteo shop in Aberystwyth which was inexplicably half the price of my local supplier. I was overwhelmed and ended up cleaning the car twice in a week in an effort to earn extra pocket money so that I could buy a scoreboard and a set of throw-in men.
You will notice that I have absolute no memory of Pembrokeshire's vast cliffs, its beautiful sandy beaches or the diverse wildlife which has found a home along the route. I have no recollection of the views or the crashing waves although I do still have the scoreboard.
This appalling memory of holidays and days out is a recurring theme. Not long ago I commented that whilst growing up on the Isle of Wight we never went to Sandown - one of the busiest resorts. The same day I found a school diary with a detailed account of a trip to Sandown and no suggestion that this was unusual.
I don't think my memory is the problem but I think the things you look for in a holiday as a child are very different from those you want as an adult. Viewpoints and walks were utterly tedious until I reached adulthood - now I would love to spend a few hours exploring a stretch of coastline on foot.
So what's the answer? Should we take our offspring on child-friendly holidays involving a whole week spent in soft play and touring round toy shops? Or a week sat round a swimming pool whilst a man dressed as a dog provides daily entertainment? I can't really think of anything worse.
I like to think that my parents' insistence on holidays which involved walking, views and history did spark some kind of interest in those sort of things, even if it took me 20 years to realise that I enjoyed myself.
I also naively think that my children will be different and that for some reason they will enjoy walking holidays and National Trust properties.
That's nonsense of course but as long as I can fit in a trip to a toy shop on route, I might just get away with it.
In some English seaside holiday counties it doesn't matter all that much which town you stay in. For example, the Isle of Wight is small enough that you will never be more than 20 minutes from a beach and you can't drive for more than an hour unless you get lost or stuck behind a tractor.
Cornwall is completely different and in terms of land mass is nearly 10 times the size of my beloved Isle of Wight. So, it is worth spending 10 minutes studying a map before booking your holiday and hoping you can explore the whole county.
Let me give you an example. You book a holiday in Bude. You've heard it's a pretty seaside town and it is in the East of the county so it is a fair bit easier to reach from somewhere like London or Bristol than other parts of the county.
After you've unpacked the travel cot and eaten your organic porridge you set off to see Lands' End.
After the first hour's driving, things are getting a little tense. The battery is getting low on the tablet and the Frozen soundtrack has started skipping in the CD player.
After another hour you've arrived (assuming there aren't roadworks or jackknifed caravans) and all is well with the world, until you realise that you've left teddy behind...
All in all, a round trip from Bude to Lands' End will take you four hours which may not be especially welcome after you've spent the previous day in the car.
So, if you want to explore the whole county I would consider somewhere a little more central. It's still a lot of ground to cover in a week but a base around Newquay or a quieter resort nearby is a safer bet. The centre of the county is also better for visiting the Eden Project, which remains one of the county's biggest attractions.
Alternatively of course you might want to head for the Lizard Peninsula. Or how about the town of St Ives or one of the many coastal villages. It's a colossal journey from London (about 5 hours by car or train, on a good day), but it's a more remote and rustic experience than the flumes in a Newquay holiday park.
Just don't attempt a day trip to bude...
