Is Camping At A Caravan Park Safer Than Wild Camping?

Yes, camping at a caravan park is generally much safer than wild camping. Unlike wild camping, caravan parks have been designed and regulated to ensure the safety of all their guests with the added reassurance that there is staff on site plus CCTV and security features.

What’s more, the ready access to advice and support, medical aid and even the local shop can all make a real difference when it comes to your safety.

Is Camping At A Caravan Park Expensive?

No, camping at a Holgates caravan park doesn’t need to be expensive. With a range of options available, it’s easy to find one that suits your budget and needs.

Holgates offer standard camping pitches for those bringing their own tents.

Or upgrade to stay in a glamping pod, a great way to enjoy the spirit of camping without having to suffer through all the hard-work of bringing your own tent and setting this up, and sleeping on the floor.

Both options come with free access included to the onsite facilities too!

Can I Use The Facilities While Camping At A Caravan Park?

Yes, you can use the on-park facilities while camping at a Holgates caravan park. All their parks are equipped with a range of activities but  vary by park. These amenities can keep you entertained during your stay, such as swimming pools, bowling alleys, gyms and even easy access to local attractions.
