The UK’s 11 Most ‘Instagrammable’ Static Caravan Breaks

Though foreign travel is back on the cards again, static caravan breaks are still a firm favourite of UK holiday-goers, and it’s easy to see why.

Your static caravan is your safe haven, your home from home, your second community, and you’ll always look forward to going back.

The UK is blessed with gorgeous coastlines and static caravan parks to match. Couple that with the fact we’re a nation that loves to share—completely besotted with social media (whether we like to admit it or not), and you have the perfect recipe.

There’s certainly no shortage of inspiration out there—let’s put it that way.

Static caravans come at a high cost, so nobody could blame you for wanting to show yours off, right? Especially if your caravan site looks the part, too—which, as we’re about to show you, many do.

If you’re reading this and nodding along, we feel you. In no particular order, here are 11 of the most ‘Instagrammable’ static caravan breaks.

Where do you (and your followers) fancy next?

 

1. Longnor Wood Holiday Park, Peak District

 

Address: Newton, Longnor, Buxton, SK17 0NG

Nearby points of interest

  • Haddon Hall
  • Buxton Crescent
  • Bakewell Old House Museum

 

If the Peak District is your destination of choice, look no further than Longnor Wood Holiday Park.

This adult-only site is nestled away in the tranquil Buxton hills and offers something different for every type of caravanner. Catering for everything from lodges and statics, to luxury pods and touring pitches, Longnor Wood Holiday Park is as versatile as it is beautiful.

At 12ft wide, the static caravans here are extra-spacious, containing one large ensuite bedroom with a separate dressing room. You’ll also find open-plan lounge and kitchen areas connected to a stunning veranda and hot tub area, too, making this the ideal retreat for a special anniversary or quiet, child-free getaway. What’s not to love?

We’ll assume you’ve either been to or seen pictures of the Peak District before, so you don’t need reminding how stunning its views are, and you’re treated to them aplenty here. There’s green as far as the eye can see.

Whatever the occasion, there’s a good chance your stay at Longnor Wood will make it to ‘the gram’.

 

2. Coombe Caravan Park, Wiltshire

 

Address: Coombe Bissett, Salisbury, SP2 8PN

Nearby points of interest

  • Stonehenge
  • Salisbury Cathedral
  • Salisbury and South Wilts Golf Course

 

Holidaying with the little ones, too? This hidden Salisbury gem is more of a family affair–not least because it’s been run by husband and wife duo Brian and Margaret for more than 40 years.

With a large playground to keep children entertained, the award-winning Coombe Caravan Park in Wiltshire offers everything you could want from a static caravan break and then some.

All its statics overlook the beautiful Wiltshire countryside and the landmarks within—some more famous than others, of course…

Nearby Stonehenge (roughly 20 minutes away by car) is one of the best-known ancient wonders of the world. Believed to be built more than 5,000 years ago, it’s been an official World Heritage Site since the mid-1980s.

However, despite its worldwide fame, nobody has ever been certain why it was built in the first place. Nevertheless, if you’ve never been to Stonehenge, it’s worth factoring in a visit on your next static caravan break here.

 

3. Trossachs Holiday Park, Scotland

 

Address: Gartmore, Stirling, FK8 3SA

Nearby points of interest

  • Loch Lomond and the Trossachs
  • Blair Drummond Safari Park
  • Stirling Castle

 

When it comes to static caravan breaks, Scotland has it all. In fact, we could probably do a round-up of purely Scottish locations (maybe we will?)—but for now, let’s look at one of the finest sites north of the border.

Trossachs Holiday Park couldn’t be better placed as far as enjoying the great outdoors is concerned. Perched on the doorstep of Scotland’s impressive first national park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, this is the perfect spot for a leisurely stroll or cycle. It has superb additional facilities for things such as golf and fishing too, if they’re more your thing.

Of course, a place surrounded by such beauty is also a photographer’s paradise—which’ll be music to the ears of your Instagram followers.

The on-site static caravans come with a choice of either two or three bedrooms, while some also have additional pull-out sofa beds for even more space.

 

4. Whitby Holiday Park, North Yorkshire

 

Address: Whitby, YO22 4JX

Nearby points of interest

  • Whitby Museum
  • 199 Steps
  • RNLI Lifeboat Museum

 

Despite its undeniable beauty, North Yorkshire is often the somewhat ‘forgotten’ part of what’s commonly referred to as ‘God’s Own Country’. However, there aren’t many better spots to experience it than Whitby Holiday Park.

Comfort and the utmost luxury are the norm on this clifftop site. Just a short walk from Whitby town centre, you’ll be able to discover its famous Gothic architecture, fish and chips, and cosy independent cafés.

The park itself boasts a good selection of high-quality static caravans, surrounded by gorgeous beaches and magnificent views of the North Yorkshire countryside.

Be it the historic Whitby Abbey, the National Trust-owned Saltwick Bay, or the Cleveland Way Coastal Path, there’s plenty to see and do when holidaying in Whitby. And if you are indeed wandering down into the town’s iconic narrow streets, no less than 199 steep ancient steps await you–you’ve been warned!

 

5. Bucklegrove Holiday Park, Somerset

 

Address: Wells Road, Rodney Stoke, Cheddar, BS27 3UZ

Nearby points of interest

  • Cheddar Gorge
  • Glastonbury Abbey and Tor
  • Wookey Hole Caves

 

Somerset is one of the most beautiful regions in the UK, and it’s home to many idyllic static caravan breaks, too.

One of them is Bucklegrove Holiday Park in the village of Cheddar, nestled on the slopes of the magnificent Mendip Hills. Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the site first opened as a local tea room more than 70 years ago.

In fact, history buffs will be intrigued to learn that Bucklegrove sits within the ancient borders of the old kingdom of Wessex.

Nowadays, however, the site offers a relaxing retreat for all the family. Its modern static caravans and lodges are fully equipped to make your stay as comfortable as can be.

The on-site Wi-Fi is also exceptionally good, too—so your Instagram followers will be glad to know.

 

6. Lakeland Caravan Holiday Park, Lake District

 

Address: Moor Lane, Flookburgh, Grange-over-Sands, LA11 7LT

Nearby points of interest

  • Grizedale Forest
  • The World of Beatrix Potter
  • Bardsea Beach

 

Set in the peaceful southern end of the Lake District and surrounded by forest, Lakeland Caravan Holiday Park is a must-visit for families that like activities and exploring.

The site is surrounded by gorgeous woodland walks and cycling routes, as well as a spectacular water park for canoeing, kayaking and paddle-boarding.

As far as its static caravans and lodges are concerned, you’ll find the right fit for your family break among Lakeland’s stunning collection. Ranging from 10ft to 14ft wide, they were made to be enjoyed, and that’s certainly what you’ll do.

Many of the static caravans at Lakeland also come with outside patio areas as standard, so you can sit and bask in the glory of the views across nearby Morecambe Bay.

Listen up, foodies! What’s more—the local area is also renowned for its cheese, seafood, and artisan bakeries. What are you waiting for?

 

7. Sandford Holiday Park, Dorset

Address: Willow Crescent, Holton Heath, Poole, BH16 6JZ

Nearby points of interest

  • Durdle Door
  • Peppa Pig World
  • Brownsea Island

 

Family static caravan breaks don’t come too much better than Sandford Holiday Park.

Surrounded by woodland and with a Blue Flag beach just a 30-minute drive away, you can sink your teeth into the best of both worlds.

Besides the exquisite static caravans and other general facilities available at Sandford Holiday Park, it won’t take you too long to work out why Dorset is such a popular tourist location either. The county’s World Heritage Jurassic Coastline is hugged by several sandy beaches stretching down to the beautiful seaside towns of Poole and Bournemouth.

Durdle Door and Lulworth Cove are also well worth a visit for all you natural geography buffs!

You’ll find some serious luxury on show at Sandford. The park spent just shy of £4m on revamping its holiday homes and lodges in 2021, and there’s more to come still.

It’d be almost rude not to let your Instagram see!

 

8. Tattershall Lakes, Lincolnshire

 

Address: 57 Sleaford Road, Tattershall, Lincolnshire, LN4 4JG

Nearby points of interest

  • Tattershall Castle
  • RAF Coningsby
  • Kinema in the Woods

 

Tattershall Lakes prides itself on not being ‘just another run-of-the-mill holiday park’, instead marketing its static caravan breaks as somewhere for spending that elusive ‘quality time’ with your extended family—whatever that looks like to you.

This Lincolnshire ‘lakeside paradise’ brings the best of the coast inland, so you can wave goodbye to the ordinary and welcome in some much-needed holiday excitement. Whether it’s jet skiing, wakeboarding, or anything in between, the chances are you’ll find your ‘thing’ at Tattershall Lakes.

The park itself also offers a huge range of statics and lodges in various shapes and sizes, built to suit every budget, desire and necessity.

On the other hand, if you’re serenity-searching, you’ll find that here, too. Lincolnshire is known for its beautiful birdlife, so bring your binoculars.

 

9. Burnham-on-Sea Holiday Village, Somerset

 

Address: Marine Drive, Burnham-on-Sea, TA8 1LA

Nearby points of interest

  • Brean Theme Park
  • Weston-super-Mare Beach
  • Noah’s Ark Zoo Farm

 

It’s hard for anyone to stay away from Somerset for too long—ourselves included—so another trip to the South West is next on our list.

This tranquil caravan park can be found nestled away where the River Brue and River Parrett meet the famous Bristol Channel, neighbouring the Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve.

There’s plenty to entertain the whole family at Burnham-on-Sea Holiday Village, with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fitness classes, bungee trampolining, crazy golf, and even a cashless arcade on-site. What would you Instagram first?

Like with most modern caravan parks, guests have a choice of several types of accommodation at Burnham-on-Sea Holiday Village. As far as statics are concerned, choose either a two or three-bedroom model, and you’re all set.

 

10. Loch Lomond Holiday Park, Scotland

 

Address: Loch Lomond, A82, Inveruglas, Arrochar, G83 7DW

Nearby points of interest

  • Loch Lomond and the Trossachs

Perched on the banks of the famous Loch Lomond, you’ll find a static caravan park of the same name—how convenient.

Loch Lomond Holiday is an excellent static caravan break, whatever the occasion. Be it a romantic anniversary getaway, an action-packed watersport weekend with friends, or just a cosy retreat to recharge your batteries, you’ll be well looked after with plenty to tickle your fancy here.

The site is home to several premium waterside hot tub lodges boasting glorious views across the surrounding waters, so, get the fizz on ice—it’s serenity (and Instagram) personified.

There’s so much to do in and around the Loch Lomond area. It’s steeped in Scottish history and tradition but balances it perfectly to cater for the modern family crowd, too. We guarantee you won’t be bored.

Last but by no means least, the award-winning Barmouth Bay is one of the best static caravan breaks, not just in Wales, but the UK as a whole. With its captivating blend of the nearby sea, mountains and a stunning sandy beach, it’s the perfect retreat for the ultimate relaxation.
