Who Are Haven Holidays?

Established in 1964, Haven Holidays were bought by the Bourne Leisure Group in 2000. Haven offer not only caravan holidays, but also the option to buy a caravan, or book a pitch for a camping or touring holiday.

A Haven Holiday can be taken all along the UK coastline – according to their website “most of our parks are only a 2 to 3 hour drive from your front door” – which is definitely appealing if you are travelling with young children, or you are only getting away for a quick weekend break.

Who Are Haven Holidays Best Suited For?


Families love Haven Holidays – not only are they located in some great destinations, they are also filled with such a wide range of activities, both day and night, that everyone will be entertained and find something fun to do.

What Is The Best Haven Park?

With so many holiday parks to choose from, 40 to be exact (at the time of writing), it’s hard to say which is the best Haven park.

The answer will likely come down to budget and personal holiday style.

What Is The Biggest Haven Holiday Park?

Devon Cliffs is the largest of the Haven Holiday parks. In fact, Devon Cliffs is one of the largest holiday parks in Europe!

Devon Cliffs is in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of activities available, both onsite and locally.

Visit Sandy Bay, winner of the Blue Flag Beach award in 2019, test out your skills with a little bit of surfing or paddleboarding. If swimming in a pool is more your thing, there is plenty of fun to be had back onsite. Devon Cliffs has a multi-level outdoor pool as well as multi-lane water slides and flumes in their giant indoor pool.

Out of the water there is plenty more to entertain the whole family – have some fun at the Adventure Golf course, experience a Segway ride or brave the dizzy heights from the Aerial Adventure course.

As you would expect from such a large and popular holiday park, there is plenty of on-site entertainment to enjoy, both during the day, and in the evenings.

What Should I Bring On A Haven Holiday?

Most of the essentials should be included in your accommodation. However, you might choose to pack a few little extras such as condiments for the week, or some oil to cook with, or maybe, if you think you might need to visit the on site launderette, some washing powder.

All of these items are available in the on site supermarket so don’t worry if you forget to take them – it just might be preferable to take your own.

Other items to think about packing;

  • Favourite DVDs (if your accommodation has a DVD player!)
  • Bucket and spade

  • Bikes, scooters etc
  • Board games, packs of cards
