£40m of improvements at Haven parks this winter


THIS winter Haven Holidays are spending a whopping £40m on new facilities and improvements to their 35 family holiday parks in the UK.

They say, ‘The stay-cation is definitely here to stay. We’re investing in new facilities, new accommodation and new ways to make our holidays even better for families. And we’re including more in the price to make sure our holidays are really good value for money.’

New Space Bowls
Several million pounds will make swimming even more fun. All Haven holiday parks have heated indoor swimming pools and they’re always popular whatever the weather. This summer the pools at Combe Haven, near Hastings and Marton Mere, near Blackpool will both have fabulous new Space Bowls where fun-seekers can reach speeds of up to 50 mph as they’re propelled down the flumes. And there will be new terraces for sun-bathing, better changing facilities and a unique new ‘SplashZone Grotto’ at Rockley Park.

Free swimming lessons
This year Haven are planning to encourage even more children to learn to swim by providing FREE swimming lessons with qualified instructors. ‘We helped more than 40,000 kids to improve their swimming in 2009,’ say Haven ‘and hope that even more children will benefit in 2010. It’s really important that everyone should be confident and happy in the water.’
It’s not just about swimming – splashtastic fun includes all sorts of extra activities to keep kids happy in the pools. Check out the Water Walkerz – where you climb inside a giant inflatable ball to roll and bounce over the surface of the pool; AquaJets (James Bond style powered submersibles); Aqua Gliders (mini inflatable jet skis) and wacky sessions with giant fun inflatables.

Even more sports
Other activities on offer at Haven parks include golf, fishing, surf lessons, climbing walls, tennis and horse-riding. In 2010 several more parks will have Adventure Golf - more challenging than crazy golf and more fun than pitch ‘n’ putt! Next year Adventure Golf is new at Marton Mere, Littlesea in Dorset and Hopton Holiday Village near Great Yarmouth.
And Coke FC Football coaching will be FREE in 2010 – so you can learn a range of attack and defence skills, dribbling, shooting and top hints and tips for ball control and goal scoring.

Better accommodation
If you’ve never stayed in a caravan before – give it a try! They’re surprisingly comfortable and spacious and Haven are spending £12million to provide even better quality and more choice for 2010. Treat your family to an Exclusive or Platinum holiday home and you can enjoy even more space and luxuries such as ensuite showers, flat screen TV’s and heating throughout. Exclusive holiday homes even have a verandah where you can relax and enjoy stunning sea and lakeside views.
But for sheer value for money you can’t beat the comfortable Standard and Superior holiday homes with everything you need for up to six people.

Great entertainment
Daytime and evening entertainment at all Haven parks will include some brand new stage-shows for 2010, character shows featuring kids favourite’s Rory the Tiger and friends, music, dancing , professional cabaret, pantos, wrestling and international circus stars. Kid’s clubs are free of charge and there are special breaks with lots for under-5’s as well.
You’ll find Haven parks at some stunning locations around the UK with direct access to some truly breath-taking beaches and close to some of Britain’s favourite resorts as well.
And if you book your holiday before January 17th you can take advantage of some excellent early booking deals with three or four night Spring Breaks are available from as little as £129 for a family of up to six on a wide choice of dates and parks.
