Blackpool caravan holidays and holiday parks

Blackpool holidays are right at the top of the conversation when it comes when it comes to UK staycations. The town’s iconic tower and pier are institutions in British holidaying history. A Blackpool caravan holiday in the summer is made complete by the stupendous pleasure beach, with incredible illuminations lighting up the promenade in autumn.

Both of our Blackpool holiday parks are a great base for exploring all that makes this Lancashire town such a special place to holiday. To the north, you’ll find Cala Gran, close to the fantastic Cleveleys Beach and backed by the River Wyre. Further south, you’ll find Marton Mere, close to a wonderful wetland nature reserve.
