As the festive season slips away and a new year looms large, many of us will be turning our attentions to 2014’s summer holiday options. In the midst of these cold, gloomy and depressingly short days, a ray of metaphorical sunshine can often be found by booking up our yearly hols.

But before you head for the nearest Thomas Cook or type “Costa del Sol” into Google while finishing off that industrial-sized tub of Quality Street, please pause to consider your options…

You could save a pretty penny by investing in a holiday caravan or leisure lodge, or by renting one out for your family.

Continental sojourns are not as tempting as they once were. Flight costs are soaring  – £1 easyJet trips to Spain are are rare as hen’s teeth these days – and a weak pound has made Euroland pricey.

That’s where our new-fangled Holiday Parks Guide comes in…

Free inside this month’s bumper issue, you’ll find our comprehensive 64-page overview of UK-based caravan and leisure lodge options.

We bring you essential buying advice, profiles of some of Britain’s best holiday parks and a guide to all the leading holiday caravan and lodge manufacturers. On top of this, there is essential buying advice and real life stories from holiday home owners. While that might sound juicy enough, it’s not all. This issue’s compendium is simply the first of an epic holiday parks trilogy! Look out for Part 2 and Part 3 in our February and March issues where there will be extensive park listings, detailing sites from Scotland to Cornwall.

Back in the current magazine issue, we have fascinating park reviews from Sussex, Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire, plus two brand new homes under the microscope and lots, lots more. Enjoy!
