Essentials for Caravan Holidays in Devon

Posted on December 21st, 2022 by Dave in categoty Travel

Taking a caravan holiday in Devon is a real treat. The area has so much to do and see, from historical landmarks to modern marvels, and everything is in relatively close proximity to cut back on time wasted driving. 

However, you don’t want to just hop in your caravan and head out to see what’s available. That’s a good way to end up going over budget, getting lost, and stressing yourself out. 

Here are some of the things you need to equip yourself, and your caravan, to ensure you get the best caravan holiday Devon has to offer. 

1: Basic Toolkit

Caravans are notorious for breaking down when you actually need them. Usually, it’s something small that completely derails your trip. 

Luckily, with a few basic tools and repair parts, you can get back on the road in less than an hour and forget all that even happened. 

First, we recommend a basic toolkit complete with screwdrivers, wrenches, pliers, tire irons, etc. You don’t need the fancies tools, but you need something to ensure you’re not stranded over something basic. 

A spare tire, some spark plugs, and other easy-to-transport parts are also good to keep on hand. Rather than having to call for assistance, you can just make the repair yourself and get on your way. 

2: Food

Vacations are expensive. They typically cost more than 4000 EUR for a four-person family. That’s a tremendous amount to pay, and a lot of it goes towards food. You can cut your vacation costs by bringing food along with you. 

You’re in a caravan, and you have the means to cook while you’re on the road. So, make sure to stock the caravan’s fridge with some basic groceries, and maybe consider doing a bit of meal prep to ensure you have everything for at least most of your meals. 

Don’t forget to enjoy the gastro pubs, though. Not every meal needs to be homemade. 

3: Schedule

There is a lot to do in Devon, and if you want to make the most of your trip, without getting side-tracked and missing out on the things you really want to see, you need to plan things out a little bit. 

This just needs to be a rough outline. You don’t want a rigorous schedule that makes your holiday feel like work, and there should always be room to take advantage of opportunities that present themselves. 

You can do this by simply researching different attractions in Devon, picking out the ones that catch your eye, and writing them down with a general schedule for each place. 

If you do this, you’ll keep yourself from being distracted by every random thing Devon has on offer, and you’ll get the most out of your trip. 

Bring A Good Attitude

All of the things we mentioned are focused on preventing you from wasting time or money, but don’t let that turn you off of a Devon holiday. The reason you have to worry about any of that is that there’s simply so much to do. 

Bring a great attitude, open yourself up to adventure, and get ready to have some fun.
