5 reasons why you should holiday off-peak: affordable UK breaks


UK holiday parks are a great choice for your off-peak break, whether you’re looking for Tots Breaks, couples retreats, or affordable luxury travel. Not only will you save some pennies, but there are so many other benefits to holidaying during the quieter seasons. We’ve collated 5 reasons why you should holiday off-peak this Autumn.

1. Fewer crowds

While the big kids are away, the little ones will play! Maybe you want to take your baby away on their first ever break, or perhaps your toddler is a seasoned holidayer. Either way, our Tots Breaks are specially designed with your child under 5 in mind. Join us for activities from starting the day off singing in Sunrise Mornings, to dancing away at the Baby Rave! All the while, you can relax knowing your tot is having fun in a quieter environment.

Planning a romantic retreat? You can benefit from off-peak UK holidays, too. Enjoy the peace and quiet with your other half as you spend quality time together. Check out our top picks for romantic holiday destinations in the UK here. Plus, you might even be able to treat your partner to fancier accommodation due to lower prices, bringing us on to our next point…

2. Lower prices

It’s a given: off-peak holidays are more affordable. We’re all struggling with the cost of living at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we should have to miss out on making valuable memories on quality holidays. That’s why Autumn is the ideal time for you, plus, you might even be able to upgrade to a luxury lodge with a hot tub or treat yourself to a couple more meals out in the on-park restaurant with the money you save!

3. Milder weather

The scorching summer heat isn’t for everyone. With plenty of stunning walking routes surrounding our leisure parks, Autumn is the perfect time to get your boots out and embark on an adventure. More comfortable temperatures can make tiring walks more manageable, and doesn’t the air just feel so much fresher at this time of year?

4. Beautiful views

Our countryside leisure parks are particularly blessed with the Autumn colours of nature. Imagine waking up to the sound of birdsong, peering out the window, and seeing awe-inspiring orange leaves adorning the many nearby trees. You’re sure to get some amazing photos at this time of year!

5. Cosy nights

The days are getting shorter, but those irresistible cosy nights are getting longer. What could be better than sitting by the fire and indulging in some heart-warming Autumn food and drink? Or, you might prefer to snuggle up in front of a spooky film with your loved ones in your holiday caravan or lodge.

If quiet holidays aren’t your cup of tea, and you’re seeking an action-packed getaway, don’t worry. The fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down! Check out our range of entertainment on park to keep you smiling and laughing throughout your holiday.

So, are you convinced? We’ve got a wide variety of short breaks and week-long holidays during the off-peak season across our UK holiday parks. Choose from a fun-filled family weekend away, a pet-friendly adventure, or a romantic relaxing midweek break – where will you go next?
