The winter holiday season is the perfect time to plan a getaway to a variety of holiday parks in the UK.
Whoever you decide to spend the festive holiday season with, here you’ll find a selection of festive activities to help you experience some of the best Christmas breaks UK.
- Winter walks
Holidaying in the UK means that there are plenty of opportunities to explore some stunning places – whether that be with a walk in the countryside, around the lakes, or a classic beach walk.
Many holiday parks around the country are located near great areas of natural beauty, so you can choose what you want to do during your stroll.
Are you a fan of quick walks and long strolls, or do you want to partake in a bit of wildlife watching?
The serene beauty you may find with snow-covered landscapes and frosty forests provides the best backdrop for your winter staycation.
- Festive themed events
Another great aspect of trying a UK holiday park staycation is that you don’t have to go far to experience everything that this upcoming festive season has to offer.
If you’re holidaying with little ones, they can partake in a Christmas decoration session or even have a great time at the Nutcracker ballet event.
They could even meet Santa and his reindeer!
During the evening, you might also find a selection of guest acts and artists to really bring the festive season to life.
With all of this entertainment on your front door, the possibilities are endless…
- Christmas markets
If you want to explore just outside of your holiday accommodation, visiting the local Christmas markets is one of the best ways to kickstart the festive season!
These may already be a part of your Christmas traditions, so why not keep this up on holiday? You might find your new favourite market!
Wander through the charming stalls, picking up some hot chocolate or mulled wine along the way. You can find some handcrafted gifts, perfect for a personalised Christmas present, and some unique ornaments to display on your tree.
They’re always a great day out to get everyone in the festive spirit!
- Winter sports
During your time away, you may even want to partake in some winter sports with your holiday group.
Around the UK, you can find temporary ice rinks where you can practice your ice-skating skills – are you a pro skater or more like Disney’s Bambi?
These types of activities add a touch of winter wonder to your getaway, but remember to wrap up warm!
As much as partaking in these types of activities will get you into the festive spirit, sometimes there’s nothing better than cosying up in your cabin or caravan – especially when you’ve been on the go all day!
Curl up in your accommodation with some festive treats, whilst your favourite Christmas film is playing in the background.
It’s the perfect way to spend some quality time with your loved ones if you want a more relaxed holiday.
