Get the Most Out of Your Group Holiday With Haven's Tried and Tested Tips

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 16, 2012) - Haven Holidays, who have 35 holiday parks around the coast of Britain, have drawn up their own list of top tips for having a good time for groups in 2012 - based on feedback from customers as well as their own observations and plans. Haven's group holidays are ideal for large families or groups of friends and you could even benefit from special discounts and offers on your chosen park. Follow these tips for tried and tested ways to get the most from your group holiday.

Head to the seaside

Our love affair with the coast and the benefits of fresh air, sand and sea continues to thrive. If you haven't felt the sand between your toes for a while, make 2012 the year you fall back in love with the Great British seaside. The beach is nature's ideal training ground - perfect for a martial arts club tournament weekend, team sailing practice, family coastal walks or a simple game of beach cricket.

Fall Back in Love with Your Family

Feedback from customers showed that friends and family want to get together to spend more quality time together and share those special occasions such as birthdays or anniversary celebrations. It's not about the 'wow' factor, it's about the 'now' factor - just easy, relaxed family fun away from the stresses of everyday life. Why not bring along more of your friends and family with you on your next break for a group holiday to remember?

Try Something New

We all like trying something new from archery and fencing to something easy - that you learned as a kid. How to skim stones, the best way to climb a rope or how to build a boat out of sand and sit in whilst the sea washes it away. Or simply try fishing- you never know you might get hooked!

Do Your Bit to Save the Planet

If you're booking a UK break, you're already off to a carbon-friendly start. Haven are very proud of their eco-credentials: ALL their parks have Conservation Awards and 32 hold Green Tourism for Business Awards. Their park rangers can help if your group would like to spot seals, go bat hunting or seek out sea anemones.

Celebrate the Queen's Jubilee

Sixty years on the throne is worth a party! Bake a cake, wave your flags and enjoy an extra days holiday. And do you know what? Many of Haven's parks have been around even longer than the Queen and they're celebrating too - with a bit of nostalgia and a chance to see just how caravan holidays have changed over the decades.

Go Swimming

Actually it's not just about swimming - it's more about having a splashtastic time in the water. Whether it's rolling up your trousers and jumping over waves, pulling on your wetsuit and enjoying the Cornish surf or having watery fun indoors on flumes, slides, space-bowls, rapids and lazy rivers, or even climbing inside a Water Walker.

Enjoy the Olympics

Watch it on big screens at Haven parks and if it motivates you to get up and get moving yourself then there's plenty on offer including football, fencing, archery, golf, swimming, climbing, abseiling and tennis. Why not organise a weekend away with your local team for a friendly?

Don't Get Stressed if it Rains

Sometimes it just does. But if you've packed your wellies and waterproofs you can have fun jumping in puddles and look forward to snuggling up in your caravan with a hot drink. There are plenty of activities going on inside at Haven that are ideal for large family holidays, including kids' clubs, daytime entertainment and indoor activities - not to mention the swimming pools where you can get wet whatever the weather! And with their indoor sportsdromes perfect for all sports activities - you'll be covered.

Let Your Hair Down

Party dances, panto's, stage-shows, music, dancing and comedy. It's all good family fun and these days, when most entertainment comes via a screen, a holiday park is a wonderful way for all ages in the group to enjoy a night out together. Make the most of it!

Don't Spend More Than You Need To

So whether it's just a handful of people getting away together, to a big group making use of the entire park - you can get away for less than you think… At the moment you can book a 3 or 4 night break during May for only £149 per accommodation for up to six.
