Teaching Poodles to Read
And Studying Ants
Why do we have Bank Holidays?
Sir John Lubbock, first Baron of Avebury, studied ants and tried to teach his poodles how to read. He was also a scientific writer, banker and politician. In 1871 he drafted the Bank Holiday Bill, which created our first Bank Holidays, when it became law.
Are the Easter eggs running out?
They might be.
So, we’re in the Easter school holidays and those huge displays of eggs in the shops are fast running out! There used to be a pile of chocolate eggs on sale, just after the double bank holiday, however Supermarkets have become wise to this. Stock levels have been reduced to stop waste.
Why we celebrate Easter
From Easter egg hunts to biting the ears off chocolate bunnies, the end of Lent to the resurrection of Christ, our Spring festival celebrates depictions of new life and change. For those that are not so religious, it marks a fun-filled long weekend.
Whether it’s about chocolate or church for you, our Devon Holiday Parks and the rest of the country are getting ready for Easter. We have some quite interesting and, somewhat, amusing trivia that may shine a light on why chocolate, bunnies and religion share the same event. You almost certainly won’t know every fact…
Easter in Woolacombe
The Easter holidays are here, the skies are already blue in North Devon and, despite the frosty mornings, the first hints of a long and warm Summer are in the air. Our Holiday Parks are now all open and we’re enjoying the Spring season.
When is Easter? Easter Sunday is late in 2019, falling on 21st April.
29th March 2019
The finishing touches are going into Holiday Park opening preparations for our Woolacombe Bay, Twitchen House and Easewell Farm Holiday Parks. Spring is upon us and we’re almost ready for the 2019 holiday season.
So, what preparations go into opening a Holiday Park? We stole fifteen minutes with General Manager of Woolacombe Bay Holiday Park, Lauren Church, to understand why she’s so busy right before our guests arrive…
Mother’s Day or Mothering Sunday is a day for families, where we show the special women in our lives just how much they mean to us – mums, grandmothers, nannies, stepmothers and, of course, mothers-in-law. The fourth Sunday of Lent is Mother’s Day, March 31st in 2019, always three weeks before Easter Sunday.
The aquatic action really shifts up another gear thanks to two big water slides coming to Twitchen House in time for Easter 2019. Just one of the ways our Devon holiday parks will bring even more great value to family breaks.
It made such a splash when it rolled onto the scene last year, so it’s no surprise the surf-style New Wave range now makes up pretty much half of all our cool caravans. Equipped with large retro fridge-freezers, bigger TVs, Comfort+ mattresses, USB charging ports in every room and a vibrant, stylish caravan design. So we thought we’d show you what’s new for 2018…
Just as the years change, so do the latest fashions and holidays are no different. So we’ve taken a look at what our early bookers are searching for and snapping up to see what are the four hottest holiday trends in 2018.
Every year we invest over £5 million into our Devon Holiday Parks so there will be lots that’s new for 2018. We believe that constant investment is what makes your holiday better every year. It also means that we can continue to offer innovative new products and services.
