Why Devon is the ultimate staycation destination in 2019

With its spectacular scenery, beautiful coastline and idyllic destinations, there’s little wonder that Devon is one of the UK’s favourite holiday destinations. And, with all the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and foreign holidays, thousands more people are choosing to holiday in the region this year.

But why should you choose Devon for your staycation holiday in 2019? If you’re still to decide on your summer getaway destination, here’s five great reasons why you should Devon (and, indeed, Oakdown Holiday Park) for your big summer escape this year…

1. Family friendly:

It’s happened to many of you, I’m sure. You’ve found somewhere picture perfect, somewhere that appears to tick all the boxes. But then taken a closer look to find that it really isn’t that welcoming for families. Well, we can assure you that Devon certainly isn’t like that! This county – and our holiday park too – was made for families! There’s simply so much to see and do nearby for kids of all ages! Your kids will love visiting places like the Donkey Sanctuary to the amazing Pecorama theme park with its miniature stream railway

2. Perfect for exploring:

Whether you’re bringing the kids or just want a quiet getaway with your partner, our little corner of Devon is made for those who love the great outdoors! Lace up those walking boots and explore the magical Jurassic coast as you walk part of the South West Coast Path in all its stunning glory! Our stretch of coastline is within the Dorset & East Devon World Heritage Site which was officially designated by UNESCO on 13th December 2001. It’s the first natural World Heritage Site in England and recognises the unique geology of the area. So, what are you waiting for?

3. Soak up the summer sun:

When the sun is beating down (which, of course, it always does in Devon!) there are few better place to be than our great county. Head to one of the many great beaches in Devon, many of which are only a short distance from our holiday park. Some of our favourites include Jacob’s Ladder in Sidmouth, Beer Beach (which is a great spot for a bite to eat, too!), Seaton Beach and Branscombe Beach.

4. Great accommodation & outstanding value for money:

Here at Oakdown we take great pride in the accommodation range we offer. Whether it be caravan holidays in Devon, touring holidays or a unique glamping experience, we aim to provide the best possible holiday experience – and at the best possible price!

5. We’re award winning!

Let’s be honest, we all like to stay somewhere nice on our holidays, don’t we. No one likes to spend their time away in surroundings that aren’t quite up to standard. Well, at Oakdown you can be rest assured that you’re staying in not only one of the finest holiday parks in Devon – but one of the UK’s best! We’re an AA Platinum rated campsite, a Premier Park 2019, were rated Gold Winners of the 2017 Devon Tourism awards and have a 2019 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
