Wahooo…. the Haven caravan season is finally upon us!!!
There is honestly nothing better than driving away from your normal life to spend quality time with your tribe…. away from chores, jobs and that awful thing that we call “laundry”. Regardless of whether you are heading to Presthaven Sands, Riviera Sands or Lakeland Holiday Park you will need a list of items to remember to take to your Haven Caravan holiday.
You may be intending to be in the caravan for a very short space of time or you may plan on being in the caravan a lot…. Either way it is important to make sure you pack all the essentials.
Essential Items to Remember for your Haven Caravan Holiday
Where on earth do you start when it comes to what you need to take with you? What Essentials do you need for a Haven Caravan holiday?
Perhaps your new to caravan life or maybe you have been a dozen times, either way… I am sure you will agree that a “caravan list of essentials” is absolutely necessary when packing for your well-deserved break.
We have only started going on caravan mini breaks since having my son and believe you me, unless you have a list of what to take on a Haven holiday you WILL forget something. The reason I have created this list is mainly so I can use it myself (I always forget something when we go on our caravan holidays).
You see, packing for a caravan break is a little different then packing for your usual hotel break. Hotels often supply you with towels, bedding and all the extras you need but caravans don’t. You need to think about washing up, cooking etc. which are things you don’t need to think about in a hotel. The reason I have created this list.
Sure…. Haven Caravan Parks have shops on site should you forget something but the cost of these items can be a little on the expensive side. To make sure you swerve any additional charges follow our caravan essentials list and you will be all ready for your break with no hiccups and unexpected surprises.
Caravan Break List of Essentials
Here are my list of essentials (items I have most probably forgotten to take myself before)
Washing up liquid
Kitchen cleaning products
High chair (unless pre-ordered)
Tea and coffee.
Sandwich bags if you are planning on a picnic
Foil for cooking
Bags for dirty washing
Towels (hand, beach, bath and swimming towels)
Bedding (take your own bedding to save additional costs)
Travel cot and bedding
Tablet (remember wifi may be limited so download from BBC IPlayer or Netflix before you go)
DVD player and DVDS
So hopefully this list has given you enough guidance to ensure you have the perfect break. To save money we always find a local supermarket nearby and get some yummy food and drinks with plenty of treats too so we aren’t constantly spending money.
