Our Top Ten Haven Holiday Parks

Haven Holiday Parks offer a great choice of activities, facilities, accommodation and of course locations around the UK. Perfect for families with lots on offer for all ages to make it a fantastic, memorable and happy family holiday to remember.  Many of the Haven holiday parks benefit from having ideal and picturesque locations, including some which have direct access to nearby beaches, or lakeside and glorious countryside views.

From the moment you arrive, to the time you have to sadly leave, there will never be a dull moment. With outdoor play areas, mini and high rope adventures, climbing walls, jump platforms, archery and arts and crafts. There’s peddle carts to explore their holiday parks further where you will discover other attractions such as crazy and adventure golf courses and fully stoked fishing lakes. The majority of the Haven parks have heated swimming pools either indoor or out with some having both, some are connected by lazy rivers and having splash zones nearby. Staying wet, there’s often extra activities such as the exhilarating Aqua jets for under water adventures, with Aqua Gliders and Water Walkerz for those who prefer above the water thrills. These are by no means the extensive list of activities on offer, you really will have to take a look for yourself and discover which Haven holiday park suits you and your family best.

Each Haven holiday park is different but quite often there are a variety of eating venues including Haven’s very own Mash and Barrel restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner with other family favourites such as Costa Coffee, Papa Johns and the nations favourite, fish and chips. However if you prefer to cook your own food then there are always the onsite supermarkets offering a good selection of foods, tasty snacks and refreshing drinks.

With mascots and the Seaside Squad keeping the children entertained throughout the day. The majority of Haven holiday parks offer a great choice of holiday accommodation, offering both pet friendly and accessible holiday homes featuring many of the appliances and features you would find within your own home.
