HAVEN is opening until the end of November for the first time to allow Brits a longer holiday season this year.

Of the 36 parks, which often close in October, 16 of them will welcome guests until November 30 as part of their Haven Hideaway package deals.

With camping and caravan pitches as well as self-catered homes, Brits can stay in destinations including Cornwall, Devon and Yorkshire in England, as well as destinations in Wales and Scotland.

Gerard Tempest, Director of Guest and Proposition at Haven commented: “We’re delighted to be able to extend our 2020 season and with that, the chance for a UK getaway.

"With a number of travel restrictions in place, and previous closures to holiday parks throughout the UK, there are many guests that weren’t able to enjoy the holiday they had previously planned for 2020.

"We hope that by extending our season, we’re able to allow more people the chance to get a break by the coast."


He added that online bookings have increased by 96 per cent as Brits opt for staycation holidays this year.

He continued: "Because of this, we know holiday makers are still looking for the chance to safely get away during the pandemic and want to be able to provide that for as many people as possible."

The parks will reopen again in March 2021, with next year's season also extending until November.

Guests can expect a slightly different holiday experience at Haven, however, as the parks follow government guidelines enforced due to the pandemic.

Haven's parks – many of which host Sun £9.50 hols – have had to overhaul their properties in order to abide by new social distancing and hygiene rules.

Timed slots for check-in, one-way paths and ordering food via an app are just a few of the changes waiting for guests at Haven holiday parks this year.

An integral part of the Haven holiday experience is the pools, playgrounds, dining and entertainment offerings, but with the government guidelines still unclear on how these will reopen, they are offering guests a stripped-back break this year.

The new 'Hideaway' breaks are heavily discounted, but they won't include access to swimming pools, pubs, restaurants and kids' play areas, entertainment or activities.

We stayed at Haven after it reopened, and found a quieter – and clean – experience.
