After the heavy rains of winter, there’s finally some sunshine appearing at the Alan Rogers office in Kent. And with the feeling that spring may be on the way, it’s the perfect time to get away for a break.
You may not be thinking about your big summer holiday yet, but there’s no reason why you can’t brush the dust off you caravan or motorhome and take it for a spin in the meantime. The great thing about UK holiday parks is that they open earlier than many of the campsites on the continent, meaning you can take advantage of a sunny week at a moment’s notice. Here are a few of our favourites:
King’s Lynn Caravan & Camping Park is a friendly, family run site in the north of Norfolk. It’s close to the beautiful north Norfolk coast, with its pretty villages such as Well-next-the-Sea and Brancaster, and its long sandy beaches. The site has pitches and accommodation, modern facilities and pets are allowed, so you won’t have to leave Rover at home.
Open: All year round
Goosewood Holiday Park is a pretty, relaxed campsite in a natural woodland setting in North Yorkshire. Excellent for walkers, it’s ideally placed for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and is only a short drive from the city of York. It has both pitches and accommodation available and there is an indoor pool and fishing on site.

Rivendale Caravan & Leisure Park is situated in the beautiful Peak District National Park, making it an excellent location for outdoor activities.
