Fun Ideas for Caravanning at Christmas

The Christmas holidays can be the perfect time to take a magical break in your van and get cosy with your nearest and dearest

Pack the mince pies and the bottle of fizz and you could be off for a relaxing Christmas or New Year break in your caravan. No more listening to Uncle John laughing at his own terrible jokes or Aunty Agnes snoring over the top of that Christmas afternoon film you were hoping to watch. 

If you’re planning on cooking your own Christmas dinner and you need to get the kids out of the van while you prepare the sprouts there are some amazing activities and walks around the local area to keep everyone entertained.

We have a New Year’s Eve Party in the Lounge Bar. Just £15 for adults and £7 for children. Price includes welcome drink, buffet and live music. Entry is by ticket only and it’s open to all! Just telephone us on 01970 871399 to book your tickets.

The British countryside is exceptionally beautiful during autumn and winter. Experience winter coastal views like the sunrise over Cardigan Bay. Or a little further afield, the River Seven Estuary view will also take in 100,000 wintering wading birds – now that's an impressive scene. 

Caravan holidays bring the family closer together. This is just as true during the colder months as in the summer. The closeness you have on a caravan holiday doesn’t compare to other types of holiday, so enjoy the time you’re going to share and plan your adventures together. 

Travelling with your significant other is always romantic. However, the autumn and winter months tend to bring that extra bit of magic into the adventure. The cold weather also means it’s actually necessary for couples to get closer! Make your caravanning trip romantic by planning to spend your evenings with a great movie, scrumptious food and a bottle of wine. 

If you need a cure for a monster headache, the scenery of Aberystwth and surrounding areas offers the perfect tonic to dust off those hangover blues.

As well as fun ideas, here are a few tips to help you with your Caravan Christmas:

  1. Pack plenty of warm clothing - take lots of layers (t-shirts, vest tops, thin and thick jumpers, fleeces, thick socks, etc) so that you can warm up or cool down easily
  2. Take extra blankets/duvet - if the temperature plunges well below zero during the night, you will be glad of extra blankets/duvet to ensure you remain cosy and warm
  3. Gas -  make sure that you have enough gas for warmth and for cooking
  4. Food - make sure you stock up and have plenty of food to keep you going throughout your holiday (remember that many site shops may be closed, and that local supermarkets operate reduced opening times)
  5. Decorations - a festive looking caravan with a miniature Christmas tree, tinsel and fairy lights (both inside and out) has a distinct magical and festive feel to it. Be as eccentric and bold as you like, turning your caravan into a real-life Santa’s Grotto - the kids will love it!
  6. Outdoor clothing - winter is the perfect time to enjoy the stillness of the countryside, but do make sure that you are fully prepared for the harsh outdoor conditions with wellington boots, walking boots, thermal clothing, waterproof jacket and trousers, hats, scarves, gloves, etc.
  7. Christmas dinner - why not save hob space by cooking your turkey outside on the BBQ? Citizens of Australia and the USA have been cooking their turkey this way for decades and swear by the method; producing succulent and juicy meat. Why not check out our friends at BBQ Talk who have Christmas all wrapped up this year with Christmas dinner on your BBQ.

Wishing you a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2018, wherever and with who ever you may be spending it with!

11 Amazing days out and things to do in Aberystwyth and West Wales

A really popular resort in West Wales is Borth, which is north of Aberystwyth on the coast. You can walk the sand dunes of nearby Ynyslas. It's an extraordinary place, very mystical. It takes you back to the fundamentals of life. Borth also has an animalarium with meerkats, a black panther and reptiles all looked after by these bohemians. The children will love it!

Ynyslas, The Walk

The route is always the same, but the destination invariably different.

Follow your dream… Escape to the coast!

I was at the NEC in Birmingham recently, representing Searivers Leisure Ltd at the Caravan Show. Wow, that place is massive, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s as big as Ynylas or Borth. There were thousands of people there, all rushing around, all busy, busy, busy. Being from the Mid Wales Coast, I’m not used to seeing so many people, it was quite disconcerting, and I was secretly glad that I did not have to endure this human congestion every day. It made me think how lucky I was to come from where I do.
