We researched Devon holidays with Park Holidays on the first week of the school holidays and found a 7 night stay at the Golden Sands, Dawlish park for £757. This was starting on Friday 29 July. Accommodation was a 2 bedroom caravan that could sleep 6. Its an expensive time of the year to go on holiday, but this price is £18 pppn (assuming 6 people staying), which still represents good value.

Where to find low price UK cheap caravan holidays
For quick and easy access to the best deals, the UK’s main caravan park operators should be your first stop. Many of the leading national operators feature last minute deals and special offers on their websites (you can directly access the leading operators offers pages from the table below).
The next alternative should be independent caravan parks. These sites can also offer some great deals but you need to search them out.
The final options we would recommend is looking at classified adverts from private holiday caravan owners. This is a bit more risky as you don’t have the backup of a large, established company but great deals can be found.

What to look for when choosing a caravan holiday – 5 top tips!
That cheap holiday deal might look tempting but there are a few things you should consider before parting with your hard earned money. Use our checklist below to make sure you get the best cheap deal for you.
- Location – what facilities does the site have? Is it near a beach? How close is the local town and shopping facilities? Try and read a review of the site if you can
- Number of nights – some (most!) of the very cheap deals are for only a couple of nights. Great for a weekend break but not for your summer holiday. Can you get a better deal by paying slightly more and getting more nights stay?
- Arrival day – again, a lot of the cheap deals tend to have midweek arrival dates. An important point to consider and check
- Caravan type – let’s be honest, cheap deals will likely be a “bronze” type caravan with basic facilities. Check what’s included in the caravan as different operators and parks have different “bronze” standards. Also, how much more for a better equipped caravan? Just be careful you don’t get caught paying “more for not much more”.
- Extra – watch out for extras. What’s included in the price? Do you have to pay extra for pets, linen, entertainment and use of the leisure facilities? Read the small print as these extra costs can add up

- Caravan holidays offer exceptional value compared to package holidays or staying in a hotel or B&B.
- They are often located near or within walking distance of some great UK beaches.
- Often included in the prices is the use of the entertainment and leisure facilities.
- Caravans are equipped like modern apartments with fitted kitchens and latest media equipment.
