Top tips for a family motorhome holiday

Pack an activity box
Take a selection of the kids favourite toys, games and books, as well as some games all the family can enjoy. It’s always good to have something for the down times when the kids need entertaining and those rainy evenings when the whole family can enjoy some good old fashioned fun.

Choose the right campsites and limit your journey times
Spend some time choosing the right campsites, make sure they have all the facilities you will need whilst there. For younger children you may want a play area and for teenagers Wi-Fi is probably a must. Plan a route that involves no more than 2 hours travelling at one time. Children want to be out exploring the countryside or enjoying the beaches rather than sitting in the motorhome travelling. This will help make your trip a lot more stress free.

Make a scrapbook
On holiday you make memories that last a lifetime. Why not make a scrap book of your travels then you have something to remind you of your wonderful family holidays. All the family can join in writing notes in it whilst you are away leaving spaces to add your photos later.

Avoid getting caught in the storm
The Great British weather can be very unpredictable. Try to plan outdoor activities around the weather, but make sure you pack your water proofs and have a plan b just in case your activities for the day get rained off.

Take your bikes
Our 6 berth Ford Zefiro 675 and VW California both come with bike racks on them, holding up to four bikes. It’s a great way to get out and explore, plus the kids love their bikes so it will keep them happy too.
