Recreate your childhood memories and take the family on a caravan break this Easter with Argyll Holidays!
People who took caravan holidays as a child consider them as some of their fondest memories. The Easter holidays is the perfect time to recreate those memories and there’s no better place to do it than Argyll.
With celebrities including Mark Owen of Take That Lorraine Kelly and Dame Kelly Holmes all reported to be caravan fans, families who choose a caravan break this year are in good company.
With eight holiday parks across Argyll, Argyll Holidays can help families make caravan memories that will last a lifetime. Here are the short break specialist’s top tips for making the most of a caravan holiday this Easter break:
• Stargaze from the comfort of your caravan balcony. Have you ever wondered what that extra-bright star in the sky is? A caravan holiday is the perfect time to explore the skies above with the family. Try using the Sky View app which helps map out constellations and planets. On a clear night there’s plenty to see from our Drimsynie and Hunters Quay holiday parks.
• The surroundings of our holiday parks are great creative fodder for storytellers. Bring out the inner author in your little ones and encourage them to tell stories using the Argyll scenery as inspiration. Video them or write them down creating a great family memory for years to come. You might just find the next Julia Donaldson.
• Get dirty. Nothing creates a better memory than being caked in mud with a beaming smile. Try something new as a family – quadbike, take an archery lesson or even Water Walk on Loch Goil. Even a simple walk in the woods can turn into a major adventure for little ones.
• Dance Dance Dance. Some of the best caravan memories are made at the disco. Let your hair down and join in. The kids will be super impressed if you can move along with them.
Argyll Holidays parks include: Drimsynie Estate Holiday Village, Hunters Quay Holiday Village, Stratheck, Loch Eck, Loch Awe and Loch Lomond. Just a short drive from Glasgow’s city centre, and with some of Scotland’s most iconic landscapes on its door step, Argyll Holidays’ parks are the ideal location for novice or experienced caravaners.
