A number of holiday parks across the country have waterslides and pools that rival Europe's best waterparks.

Since many Brits are sticking to the UK for their summer holiday, a parkwith facilities to dip in and avoid the sweltering heat is a welcome prospect.

We reveal where you should take the family to cool off with a swim and a slide.

Many of the holiday parks happen to be close to great beaches and have lots of kid-friendly activities on site. Some of them even have slides in their indoor pools in case the heat gets too much or (more likely) it rains.

Here are the best options for summer…

Haven Devon Cliffs, Devon

Make a splash at Haven’s biggest park, which sits above the golden sandy beaches of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

You’ll find an indoor pool packed with water features that will tire out the whole family. Zip down the flume, play in the water jets or race each other down the four-lane slide.

Outside, there’s a multi-level pool which is quieter, but still has slides and – our favourite feature – a giant tap that showers you with water.
