Nowadays many camping sites in Cornwall have started to offer static caravan rentals. At first glance the idea of renting a caravan that is fixed and doesn’t move may seem rather pointless, but the truth is that there are actually several benefits that make it worth considering.
If you’re toying with the idea of renting a static caravan, here’s a few of the advantages that you may want to think about:
- No need to drive the caravan to the campsite
Unlike regular caravans, a static caravan is already at the campsite so you don’t need to drive it from your home or the rental depot. Instead, you can focus on your own transportation and have it ready for you when you arrive. Assuming you’re on a budget, that will mean that you could use public transportation to get to the campsite, rather than having to pay for gas to drive all the way there.
- Cheaper than most other accommodation options
Generally renting a static caravan tends to be cheaper than most other accommodation options – outside of camping or perhaps some extremely low-end budget motels. If you’re traveling in a group then you could save quite a lot by finding a static caravan large enough to accommodate your entire party rather than having to rent several rooms in a hotel.
- Varied amenities to suit your needs
Depending on what you want you should be able to find a static caravan that has the sort of amenities you require. Most have the basics such as cookers, microwave ovens, toilet and shower, TV, and so on – but some even have WiFi internet, fridges, barbecue grills, and other amenities.
- Access to campsite facilities
One of the nice things about renting a static caravan at a campsite in Cornwall is you also gain access to the campsite facilities. Naturally this varies from campsite to campsite, but some have tennis courts, parks, private fishing ponds, bars, playgrounds, and so on. In short you could pick a caravan to rent based on the campsite you find with the best facilities.
- Can house even larger groups under a single roof
Static caravans come in many different shapes and sizes, and some are small and designed for just two people, while others are large enough to fit parties of up to 6 people or more. The fact that you can house even large groups under one roof is nice for group holidays – and is especially well-suited to families that are traveling together.
By now you should be starting to see the appeal of a static caravan holiday in Cornwall. Simply put it is a cost-effective option that will let you save on accommodation, while still benefiting in various other ways at the same time. Just remember to check what amenities and facilities are available and also be mindful of any rules or requirements when you’re booking your caravan, so that you know exactly what you can and cannot do.
