Touring & Motorhomes Make Your Family Holiday…

Posted on

What’s more fantastic than being able to hit the road—and we mean really hit the road—on your own set of wheels? Forget trying to stuff everything you might need into one ridiculous suitcase, and forget about those tragic budget airline charges for an extra kilo of weight. When you tour in a motorhome, you’re free to bring whatever you want, from forks and spoons to the kids’ beloved teddy bears. All over the country, too!

Motorhomes are made for touring, and nothing beats the convenience of simply bringing your home along with you. At Harrison Holidays, you don’t need to tell us twice. Whether it’s by the gorgeous British coastline at Riverside Holiday Park, or among the greenery at our Royal Umpire Caravan Park, we’re all about letting the good times roll—on wheels! Here’s why so many Brits are head over heels about caravans, motorhomes, and just touring with the family…

Your own tiny house…

A motorhome is a tiny, compact, but super-convenient version of your own home. And while it may be small, it’s all set for great big adventures! If you’re one to worry when you can’t bring the kitchen sink along, motorhomes are the ideal solution.

Like camping, touring in motorhomes or caravans allows you to get out there, or as Mark Twain once put it, to explore, dream, and discover. But unlike camping, you don’t have to surrender all the modern comforts of the 21st century to do it! If driving from place to place is not your cup of tea, motor homes make it easy to settle in and enjoy the facilities. At Harrison Holiday’s Riverside Park in Southport, these include an exciting splash pad, and swimming pool, an adventure playground for the little ones!

Quality family time…

Try as we might, we’re not always able to give the family our 110% at home. Tiredness from work or just the hustle and bustle of daily life can mean we spend less time with our family at home. But taking your family on holiday can give you a different perspective. Why not enjoy the views together, and run around in a country park until nightfall, knowing your home is just a few steps away in our Wild Rose Touring Site?

That’s just the start of it, too. Our daily routines leave little time for out-of-the-way activities like fishing and hiking. Touring in a motorhome is not only a great family holiday in terms of spending time together, but it also allows you to introduce new things to the kids. What about setting up at Royal Umpire’s Touring Pitches and visit the local farmer’s markets together? With full electricity in every caravan or motorhome, you can even try your hand at cooking your purchases together!

Cook for yourself!

While we’re on the topic of cooking, have you ever found yourself on holiday abroad in need of a midnight snack? Or even fancied a bite to eat without getting all dressed for the shops? Bringing your own kitchen with you is far, far more useful than it may sound to those who haven’t tried motorhome touring before. If you’ve budgeted for a family holiday but don’t feel like ‘forking’ out for three restaurant meals a day (and for many mouths, to boot), having your own kitchen is a lifesaver. Being able to wake up and enjoy some breakfast on your picnic bench is something easily done in our Wild Rose Deluxe Touring Pitches, with high hedges for added privacy.

Motorhoming vs. Camping

While camping and glamping are things we adore at Harrison Holidays, we know camping isn’t for everyone. Put another way, putting someone in a tent doesn’t necessarily guarantee a happy camper. Especially when that comes along with packing and carting a tent around in a passenger car, with children in tow.

Motorhomes allow spontaneity at its finest. It’s easy to jump in the caravan and head out for a long weekend, and it’s just as easy to set up with full amenities at one of our touring pitches! If you fancy a change or scenery or a beautiful drive in the country, you can easily hop in and drive your home to the next holiday park. And, at Harrison Holidays, we have parks in the most beautiful spots in England. Done everything there is to do in our Southport Riverside Park? Then just hop behind the wheel and head to see Croston at Royal Umpire Park!

Ready for a family holiday on wheels?

Here at Harrison Holidays, we are huge touring fans. And with so many benefits, from convenience and freedom to family time, it’s not hard to see why so many Britons are choosing to take their homes on holiday! It’s why we make sure our Wild Rose Park,  Royal Umpire Park and Riverside Holiday Park provide the best facilities in unspoiled settings. If you’re ready for some good old motorhome fun with the family this Spring, why not take a look at what we offer?
