When you first visit the holiday parks, try to think practically, and not just be mesmerised by the fantastic location.

If you are a pet owner, ask if your pet will be allowed on site. Some holiday parks are totally pet-free zones. Will the site allow you to rent out your holiday home when not being used by your family? Remember to ask many questions before you make your final choice.

Most new caravans are now fitted with central heating, which is very advantageous through the colder autumn and winter months, but bear in mind your gas and electricity costs.
