Don’t Let Weather Ruin Your Holiday | News | Allens Caravans

You may have looked at static holiday homes for sale in the UK but felt deterred by the fact that Britain is so rarely blessed with “good” weather. With this being said, what exactly is “good” weather? Here at Allens, we believe that all weather is “good”, so long as you’re prepared for it!

Therefore, if you’re looking to buy a holiday home in the UK, you must first consider all the steps you can take to prevent the notorious British weather from ruining your holiday. Detailed below are some of Allens top tips for combatting cold or drizzly weather.

Pack Suitable Clothing

First things first, regardless of what time you’re visiting us, make sure you pack all manner of clothing that’s suitable to all types of weather. Even in the middle of July, it’s been known to hammer it down with rain in the UK, so never rule out the possibility that it may be chilly and wet outside. As long as you have the right clothing, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying your holiday and exploring both the park and the local area. After all, a little rain never hurt anyone, and it can even be good fun!

Bring Board Games

One of the most common reasons for considering static holiday homes for sale in the UK is to encourage family bonding. We’re in a time where smartphones, tablets, computers, and consoles dominate our interactions, so while on holiday and the weather’s not too pleasant, why not crack out the board games? Monopoly, Guess Who, Scrabble; they’re all great bonding activities that can’t be matched via a screen.

Venture Through the Woods

Another reason why people consider buying a holiday home in the UK is down to the beautiful natural scenery that the British countryside has to offer. In spite of the natural beauty, the weather can be somewhat of a dampener on the setting. As previously mentioned, with the appropriate clothing, there’s no such thing as bad weather. So, pack your rain macs and welly boots and explore the beauty that our holiday parks have to offer.

Sit Back, Relax, and Enjoy

Everyday life can be a stressful experience, but a getaway provides you with the perfect opportunity to completely unwind. What other time are you able to do completely nothing, if not on your holiday? Take your holiday as an opportunity to sit back, relax, and enjoy the peacefulness and serenity of an Allens holiday park and make the most of the quality time you’re spending with your family.

Meet Your Neighbours

If you feel as though you’re stuck inside your caravan, this is the perfect opportunity to get acquainted with your neighbours. When purchasing a holiday home, it’s these people that you’ll encounter for years on end, so it’s only natural to strike up a friendship with them. Reach out and invite them over for a drink or two, you might even form lifelong friendships!

Make Use of Allens Facilities

Allens is home to some of the best facilities across all holiday parks in the country that can be enjoyed whatever the weather. From the buzzing clubhouses, bars, and community halls to the ambient cafes and restaurants, there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple and a bite to eat. Not only this but brilliant live entertainment is also hosted at these venues.

Perhaps you prefer to keep active. If that’s the case, we’ve made it so that you can swim whether the rain is pouring, or the sun is shining. This is all thanks to our mix of heated and indoor pools that don’t let the weather stop you from getting your lengths in.

In addition to swimming, we have some forms of indoor fun, including games rooms and toddler soft play. Who says that keeping the little ones entertained has to be an outdoor affair?

Learn more about our smorgasbord of facilities on our holiday parks page.

Discover the Local Area

Although our holiday parks are equipped with everything you could possibly need during your stay, there’s no saying that you can’t venture beyond the boundaries of the park. Our parks are situated within some of the most stunning locations across the whole of the UK, including Wales, Northampton, the Cotswolds, and Worcestershire. In each of these areas, you’ll find shopping centres, museums, and tourist attractions. There’s no reason why bad weather should equate to a bad holiday, as long as you enjoy yourself, that’s all that matters!
