Fuengirola, Espana (PressExposure) May 19, 2012 -- The Holiday season is nearly upon us, and holidaymakers will be looking for somewhere to go and spend their leisure time. A no fuss no hassle holiday is just getting into the car and travelling by road to a location that will give a family everything they are looking for in a holiday and camping holidays fulfil this requirement.
Camping as a recreational activity entered into popular society over 100 years ago and as the effects of cut backs and the current economic climate takes hold there are about 1.2 million people who use camping and caravanning as their main holiday within the UK and the experts tell us this is set to grow even more.
Camping under canvas is nothing new, it has been enjoyed since the 1800s, Thomas Hiram Holiding took a journey with his family in 1853 at the age of 9 across the American prairie and used his experience to write a book about his experience which led to the formation of Association of Cycle Campers in 1901, and was the beginnings of the Camping and Caravanning Club.
Of course history tells us that Sir Robert Baden-Powel went on to form the scouting movement, and this trend has continued over the years. Camping and caravanning has changed the way the great British public go on holiday. People are now starting to notice the benefits of this type of holiday in preference to staying in a guest house or hotel.
Devon and Cornwall have for many years been a favourite location to holiday, and there is nothing better than a caravan park Cornwall, to relax and enjoy time with the family, and holidaymakers have recognised that this type of holiday has much to offer.
The 1960s saw a great swing to a self-contained holiday on a Devon caravan park, or the same in Cornwall, it offered freedom to do exactly what you want with no restrictions what so ever, and plenty of activities to enjoy, just perfect for the whole family.
Campsites in Cornwall are set in some of the most beautiful locations and it does not matter what type of accommodation you set your heart on it will be waiting for you, either a static caravan, or holiday cottage or even tow your own touring caravan, or just pitch a tent.
Long gone are the days that consumers look for holidays in the sun. There is so much stress attached to this type of holiday, such as expensive flights, waiting at airports, and some locations need the traveller to have injections, but with a camping and caravanning holiday in the UK just get in your car and go, and enjoy a campsite Devon
Remember Cornwall caravan parks have been there for ever it would seem, so they know just how to cater for families and show them a good time, a spokesman for Wooda Farm Holiday Park said "we put a lot of importance to family time and we go out of our way to make sure everyone has a good holiday, furthermore our accommodation and facilities are second to none".
Camping is good for us all no matter what age, so enjoy a campsite in either Devon or Cornwall and prove this type of holiday is the number one recreational activity and long may it reign.
