    Why choose Waterside family holidays in the UK?

    Our UK family holiday parks aren’t just places to lay your head at night. They’re places where memories are made.

    Top-notch accommodation and facilities

    At our parks, not only are you staying close to some of the UK’s most jaw-dropping attractions, but you’re experiencing award-winning accommodation combined with facilities designed to pamper, rejuvenate, entertain and excite.

    Our parks are five-star, so expect first-rate service and amenities. But don’t just take our word for it, read our reviews and testimonials. They’re so exceptional that we’ve received a 2021 Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice Award for Bowleaze Cove Holiday Park & Spa (formerly Waterside Park and Spa), Chesil Beach holiday Park (formerly Chesil Vista) and Tregoad Holiday Park.

    In fact, the Bowleaze Cove Holiday Park & Spa has received more than 10 years of five-star VisitEngland ratings since becoming a member of the scheme in 2000. Tregoad Holiday Park has won Gold in the Cornwall Tourism Awards for the past two years in a row and the Holiday Park of the Year Award in 2021.

    Ethical and sustainable mindset

    We’re passionate about preserving the environment around us. We support the Cornwall Wildlife Trust and are delighted to have won the Cornwall Tourism Awards’ ‘Holiday Park of the Year’ gold award and ‘Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable’ silver award.

    After recently completing a £25,000 wildlife access project at Tregoad, we’ve been welcoming an array of wildlife to the area and are privileged to have witnessed the growth of some spectacular flora.

    Redevelopment and refurbishment

    We are constantly investing in our UK family holiday parks – not only to improve and provide new habitats for native wildlife – but to redevelop and refurbish our facilities. We’re passionate about maintaining our exceptional standards.

    A family business for family holidays

    Our family business is dedicated to continuing the legacy of the founders Ralph and Esther Jacobs, who started the business in 1963 with the aim of offering the best UK family holidays to our guests.

    Low deposits

    You can book a stay at our UK family holiday parks with just a £40 deposit. You can then pay as much as you like, whenever you like, up until the balance due date (10 weeks before your holiday).

    Peace of mind

    With Waterside, you’re covered for unexpected events such as illness, redundancy and Coronavirus until seven days before your holiday starts. So you can be sure that you won’t lose your money in the unlikely event your trip has to be cancelled before the seven-day lead up to the trip.
