On-going major investment at Lakeside Holiday Park to make your caravan holiday in Somerset even better in 2016!

23 February 2016

new_caravans_at_lakesideAt Lakeside Holiday Park, we are continually striving to make your holiday experience even better year after year. During this current closed-season period, we have invested over half a million pounds into making improvements, expanding facilities and adding new holiday homes, to help make your 2016 holiday one to remember!new_mulberry_caravan_lounge_at_lakeside

New Caravans
There are 8 brand new Puffin Plus letting fleet caravans and 5, top of the range Osprey 6 & 8 berth caravans being added to our range of accommodation this year. The Osprey vans have gas fired central heating and double glazing while the Puffin Plus vans have background heating and double glazing as standard.

Part of the major investment programme at Lakeside this winter is one especially for the kids! We have an exciting new, state of the art, under 10’s Play Area being installed just a few paces from the ‘Sail Loft’ and ‘The Boathouse’.

New apparatus includes:

  • HUGE nautical themed abstract multi-play unit
  • Merga Tripod group swing
  • Sherwood Play Boat – including a large sand pit inside the hull ‘cargo’ area
  • Roxy Jeep 4-seater spring ride on
  • Modern version of the traditional See-Saw
  • Mekkar twirl roundabout
  • 8-seater circular table & seating units

All of the play apparatus is created using a mix of durable materials and fabricated to the highest standards, and the table / seating units are wooden and made here in the UK.

The Play Area is being relocated next to the swimming pool terraces and replaces 4 caravans. In return, we have created 5 new caravan bases where the old Play Area was – sounds simple but there’s a significant amount of work that goes into achieving this – most of which is underground and out of sight.

Once finished, the brand new Play Area will be finished off with security fencing, turfing and specialised rubber matting for kids to bounce on! All we need now is for it to stop raining so we can have it finished and up and running in next to no time.

The Lakeside Beer Garden
We are in the process of adding a new outside beer garden and seating area – perfect for mums and dads to relax while keeping one eye on the kids having fun.

The total value of what we’ve put into the new Play Area and Beer Garden is upwards of £200K, and it’s definitely something pretty special!

We look forward to welcoming you to Lakeside over the summer season, and we hope you enjoy all the new additions.

If you want to request a particular unit at Lakeside Holiday Park we would advise speaking to someone in person as then you can ensure you get exactly what you want – we have equally as good units that are a different model, so our online booking may allocate you one of these, so it would be best to talk to reception – hope that helps 01278 792222
