We think there’s something quite special about escaping to the countryside for a stay at a Best of British Holiday Park. Nothing beats waking up to the sound of bird song and enjoying far reaching views in every direction from your tent or motorhome pitch.
The Best of British group are fortunate to have a wide variety of holiday parks set in idyllic countryside locations across England, Scotland and Wales. Here’s just some of the reasons we think a stay at one of our countryside holiday parks is a must in 2020.

One of the best things about holidaying in the countryside is the beautiful scenery that surrounds our holiday parks. Just a few steps from your touring pitch or caravan holiday home accommodation, you’ll be treated to uninterrupted views over rolling hills and patchwork farmland as far as the eye can see.

Our idyllic countryside locations offer space to unwind and enjoy quality family time together. The children can run around to their hearts content and experience the freedom to try activities that they may be difficult at home. Let them get muddy, splash in puddles, build dens, make daisy chains and play hide and seek in the nearby woods. The stains on their clothes will fade but the memories will be treasured into adulthood!

If you live in a town, you’ll be used to the constant drum of traffic, beeping horns and crowds of people going about their busy lives. Enjoy nothing but bird song as you relax in tranquil surroundings during a stay at one of our countryside holiday parks.

There’s something quite special about whiling away an afternoon in a cosy countryside pub. Spend an hour or two enjoying a glass of local ale and a delicious home cooked meal using ingredients grown on local farms. Get cosy around a roaring open fire on a chilly winter’s day. In the height of summer, enjoy time spent refuelling in a beer garden during a pit stop on scenic walk from one of our countryside holiday parks.
