Haven Keep Family Holidays Close to Nature With 13 Woodland Based Holiday Parks

HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2011) - The debate raging about the future of British forests and woodlands has been a timely reminder of just how important these spaces are to the British public. With tens of thousands signing petitions to protect the status of the forests, more and more are considering the calming environment of woodland as exactly the staycation they are looking for to relax and unwind on their family holidays.

With thirteen of the 35 Haven family holiday parks enjoying woodland habitat, Haven Holidays offer a tree-mendous range of locations from which to explore the great British forests.

Haven's Wild Duck Park near Great Yarmouth is set in a truly tranquil woodland setting. Caravans are nestled between leafy trees and there are some lovely walks through the woods and along the nearby Norfolk Broads.

Kids (and adults too) can uncover their inner Robin Hood with archery coaching, or really get away from it all by hiring bikes and exploring the forest.

The new Wildlife Detectives walks provide a great opportunity for kids to explore their environment, digging out creepy crawlies and planting their own trees to rear at home. They'll have so much fun they won't realise how much they are learning!

Haven have a long history of conservation and environmental awareness, and every year are doing more and more to raise the bar higher. Over the last decade, Haven have planted an extraordinary 300,000 trees across their 35 parks. These not only help the fight against global warming by taking in the harmful greenhouse gas CO2 but make the parks greener and more attractive places to stay. 

All these factors and more make Haven woodland UK breaks a great option. Wood-n't you agree??!!

Prices for a Spring Break at Wild Duck start at £99 based on a family of up to six in Superior two-bedroom self-catering accommodation arriving on 21st March for four nights. Call 0871 230 1900 or click on www.haven.com.
