We’re all becoming more aware of just how important our mental wellbeing is. Camping and time spent outdoors have been shown to reduce stress and anxiety, provide better sleep and improve your mood. This is because being in nature leads to a serotonin and endorphin boost, leaving you happier and healthier.
As with any holiday, going camping and being in the wilderness means that you and your family will be spending far less time on your phones and computers. If you choose to go for a rural retreat, you can escape the busy city life and Wi-Fi connection to enjoy quiet moments together in nature. It’s great for the kids as well as the adults– less screen time, and more quality time!
In the last couple of years, many people have begun to realise the appeal of staying closer to home for their holidays. One of the benefits of less long-haul travel is that it’s much kinder to the environment, and means you can travel with less impact on the world around you. We can all do our bit to lessen our carbon footprint, and if you’re a committed explorer then investing in a caravan is a fantastic way to do your bit.
Unlike holidays abroad or hotel staycations, with your own caravan, you can travel on your own schedule without having to plan around check-in times. When you go abroad, you’ll have to plan your meals, flights, places to stay, rent a car and much more, the planning also gets even more extensive when an entire family is involved. With your caravan, you can live by your own schedule – come and go as you please, change locations and just see where your adventures take you!
Don’t have much on in the coming weekend but it’s too late to book anything? With a caravan, you can whisk your family or friends away at short notice. No need to browse the internet and stress yourself out scouting for the ideal hotel or B&B. Just leave on your own time and book last-minute trips with a caravan.
We know how busy everyone gets, even if you’re under the same roof. Our jobs, outings and responsibilities can get in the way of that much-needed family bonding time.

The costs to go on holiday as a family can get expensive quickly as you have to pay for a hotel, food, and airfare per head. Purchasing a used caravan can be a surprisingly affordable option, with an initial spend paying off for years to come. Your caravan is an investment which means you’ll always have the ability to get away, with only petrol and any site fees to pay for – leaving you with even more funds for other activities!
One of the downside of a traditional holiday is leaving behind your dog or cat, however, with your own caravan, you can choose a pet-friendly campsite and bring your pet with you. No need to look for a pet-sitter, trips can include the whole family, leaving no man or animal behind!
Decorate your caravan exactly the way you want, so you feel even more at home! Whether this includes adding your favourite cushions to the seats, family pictures or plants, you can beautify your home away from home however you would prefer. Hotels can be impersonal and difficult to feel at home, but with a caravan, this will be your holiday home for many years to come.
The caravan community is a thriving and sociable group to be a part of. We can’t think of a better way to make new friends who share your sense of adventure than getting to know your neighbours at a popular camping site. Of course, some people prefer a quieter experience, and with a caravan, you truly have the best of both worlds – you can escape from everything with a remote retreat, or get involved and make some friends for life if you prefer more hustle and bustle!
