With comfortable accommodation and a great range of leisure activities, our holiday parks are the perfect escape! And this year, we've kept our UK holidays as affordable as ever.

As part of the Bourne Leisure Group....

Haven holidays is part of Bourne Leisure Ltd who also own Warner Leisure Hotels and Butlins Resorts.

Now the largest privately owned holiday operator in the UK, Bourne Leisure started over 40 years ago with one caravan park. With a continuous investment programme, the business has grown not only in the number of parks owned but also in the size and quality of the businesses and amenities provided for our guests and owners. Bourne Leisure live by their mission statement (see below) and in 2000 they bought the Rank Group Holidays Division which included the Haven brand.

Adding Haven holidays to the Bourne Leisure portfolio extended the choice of top quality parks and locations available to families. Some of the smaller parks were sold but the larger parks have been kept and over the last ten years have enjoyed being part of the rolling investment programme which includes providing new accommodation, landscaping, Spas, golf courses, adventure golf and most recently enhancing some of the leisure pools with flumes, slides and Space Bowls.

All 35 parks offer heated indoor and outdoor pools, daytime and evening entertainment, activities, children’s clubs and a variety of attractions that range from fishing lakes to climbing walls. Haven parks also make a fantastic (and very affordable) base for exploring the local area with superb locations close to some of the UK’s most beautiful beaches, resorts and countryside.

Haven holidays has been named in the British Travel Awards 2012 as the winner of Best UK Holiday Park Operator and Best Large Camping and mobile Tour Operator. Companies were nominated by the public and then voted by consumers in what has been the largest awards programme in the UK this year. The BTAs were created to reward the best companies in travel and are recognised by consumers and travel professionals throughout the UK. With categories spanning 75 types of holiday experience - The British Travel Awards is quite simply the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business

Haven was been awarded the 2012 Travel Bulletin Holiday Parks Operator of the year award, and for two years in a row we have been awarded Best Domestic Operator of the Year at the TTG Travel awards. All of our parks hold Conservation Awards.

Haven holidays provide good value family breaks to over 2.4 million holidaymakers every year - where the fun is included in the price!
