Caravanning with a difference – Six reasons to hire a caravan whilst visiting

30th May 2018

Fantasy Island, Skegness

An easy, fun, stress-free summer holiday for all the family!

Do you love taking off on a family caravan holiday but are struggling for new destinations? How about one place that has a theme park, a beach, a huge shopping centre and much more?

Fantasy Island is situated just 3.9 miles from Skegness train station, which has an hourly service from Nottingham (two on Sundays). Regular bus services from Skegness drop you minutes from its front gate.

Here are six benefits of taking your caravan holiday with the family to Skegness:

Children’s entertainment on your doorstep

Your little ones will love going up in a mini hot-air balloon, and teenagers will find the amazing 124 ft loop of the Odyssey rollercoaster or dizzying spins of the Frisbee ride simply irresistible. Along with the traditional Dodgems, there are over 30 rides in a program that changes every season. A Soft Play Area for the under-threes will ensure you’ll also have a special place to take toddlers.

Adult Entertainment

For adults, there is professional Go-Karting, golf and 10 pin bowling. The Island’s activities don’t stop until 9pm in the evenings and there is live entertainment in two themed bars, who also serve delicious food.


The local town has many attractions including a seven-day market nearby, which has all the major shops plus specialist outlets.


Unlike other amusement parks, when the entertainment and thrills at Fantasy Island completely wear you out, the whole family can relax on the nearby beach. Just relax in the sunshine and let the stress wash away.


Day tickets to the theme park and funfair start at £22 per day for unlimited rides or just £60 for a week. If you prefer you can also pay as you go. This summer, you can benefit from a special 20% discount available to all Stagecoach bus ticket holders with a further 10% discount for booking online!

Comfort and ease

Clean, modern caravans, sleeping up to eight people, can be hired for a weekend or longer and will mean that you can enjoy all the local attractions at a leisurely pace. They come equipped with Sky TV and showers, many offer cots and two separate bedrooms. These can be viewed on the website and booked online.

With unique events and fireworks displays throughout the season, your summer holiday in Skegness may well be one to remember!
