Changes have been made to the way in which Haven holidays work now, thanks to Covid. You are now able to choose between just a ‘stay’ break or a ‘stay and play’ break where you get things like swimming and activities included.

Holidays are already expensive so I wanted to share the free activities that were available to us on a Haven holiday in 2022.
Being a family that doesn’t drive means that some holiday destinations are quite hard for us to get to or it means we can’t take everything we would possibly need. You may have read some of our posts recently about our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea and to get here, we had to take the bus.

I don’t really know what I was expecting but having never stayed in a caravan before, I didn’t really know what I would be staying in. The whole caravan was so modern and beautifully decorated.

Towards the end of last year John won an award at work which meant he got some vouchers to spend. We decided to put those vouchers towards the cost of a holiday at Haven in Caister-on-Sea.

I had never stayed in a caravan before so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Before our break we received an upgrade from a standard caravan to a
In early December John won an award at work, which I was super proud of him for. With his award he also won £100 of vouchers which we could have used in loads of different places. We could have been sensible and bought the new iron that we need, or a new lawnmower but instead we did something even better… we booked a holiday.
