10 Best Haven Touring Sites | Pitches and Facilities

Spread the love

Haven is one of our most favourite Holiday Park chains to visit. Sometimes the touring areas can be a bit hit and miss for us. We have stayed at some that have been right by the facilities and have had lovely big pitches with fabulous touring and camping facilities. Others have been disappointing and I sometimes have wished that I had done a bit more research. For this reason I have asked for advice and recommendations within my caravan groups. The results of which I am posting about today. I will include links to all sites, reviews where possible and also a map of the site. This is so that you can see the touring site size and it’s proximity to the facilities.

Please note all sites below allow campers with tents, caravans, motorhomes and trailer tents unless otherwise stated. These sites also have static caravans to rent. All sites are listed in alphabetical order. Top tip if you are looking for the biggest pitch possible it pays to enter the largest caravan size allowed on that particular site. You also get allocated a bigger pitch if you select awning (we rarely take our awning though!).


Burnham on Sea Haven, Somerset

Pitches – Largest pitches available for a tourer are – Euro Hardstanding with Awning. Approx pitch size 7.9m x 7.9m (26ftx26ft). A touring pitch with a hardstanding base that has connection points for Electric hook up, drinking water, waste water disposal and TV point. These pitches also have space for an awning.

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner. “Great really friendly wardens. Stayed twice, both times on grass pitches which were very big. Toilet and shower block well looked after and included a few cleaning items to clear up after ourselves. Only a couple of minutes walk to entertainment block with a great swimming pool, restaurants, shop and laundry facilities. Fully serviced pitches looked great. Short walk to sea front and into the town which has everything you need.”

A quote from Haven “With a climbing wall, ropes course and swan boats, our buzzy park is just made for outdoorsy families. But because the action is spread out among trees and water, there’s a lovely feeling of escape here. Just hop across the road and the beach is a pleasant stroll away. Or stay on the park for fresh fish and chips or sample our tasty bar and restaurant menu.” Click to book a stay at Burham on Sea.

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner.  “We go to Caister on sea, lovely big pitches water electric tv point all there. Always very friendly staff we have been going there for six years on the trot, only downside is that it’s too expensive in the holidays.”  Read a review here of the site by Me, him, the dog and a baby.

A quote from Haven – “It’s easy to see why Edwardians liked this coastal spot in the lovely village of Caister-on-Sea. Take a short stroll through our dunes and flop on to the golden sand (or hop in the car and explore the nearby Norfolk Broads). Spend all day on the beach – we’ve got great access to miles of golden sand.” Click to book a stay at Caister On Sea.

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner –  “We stayed at Hafan y Mor last year and it was such a nice site. Pitches were huge and the whole touring part is maintained by a lovely couple who are constantly tidying and cleaning and looking after you. Very friendly and didn’t feel like you were on a huge commercial site at all. Would highly recommend that”.  “I’d recommend Hafan y Mor in North Wales, pitches are grandstanding with gravel for awning and a large side of grass, fully serviced pitches. Shower block is lovely and clean. 300 yards or so from entertainment and bus stop. It is about 3/4 mile walk to the beach, but you can take the car closer. 5* Read more about the site here in a review by the Coastal Mummy.

A quote from Haven – “Looking for a bit more? We have action galore in our large, gently undulating park on the Llyn Peninsula. Think deserted beaches, wild flowers and the Snowdonia National Park. Inside our park we have so many fun activities, including Aeriel Adventure! But with gardens, woodland walks and our own pebbly beach, you might choose to do – nothing at all.” Click to book a stay at Hafan Y Mor.

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner – I wanted to include a site in Scotland. I inclubed Craig Tara Ayr because it’s got the biggest pool I’ve ever seen and no one had recommended anywhere up north. One of my readers said “We hink it’s terrible for tourers. Tourers are away up the back and shower facilities are small and not very good. Much prefer Haven Haggerston castle.” And so for this reason we are including Haggerston Castle.

A quote from Haven – “Family adventures on the Northumbrian coast…Our pretty woodland park is on an old castle estate with a remaining tower. And, you’ll certainly live like kings here in Northumberland as we have lots going on. Our tempting line-up includes a pool, a ropes course and pony riding. But with shady paths and trails, you can go for a stroll or bike ride around the park – and lose yourself among the trees. Anyone for hide and seek?”. Click here to book a stay at Haggerston Castle

A quote from Haven – “On Perranporth’s famous beach. Our undulating clifftop park is spread across some high sand dunes – so we have great views of the sea below us.

Then, shhh, you can always escape for an afternoon snooze in the dunes”. Click to book a stay at Perranporth.

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner – “Despite such small pitch sizes quoted on the website a lot of the pitches are much bigger than stated. We had a lovely sized pitch.

There is an onsite land train that you are free to use and we loved the splash park, pool and evening entertainment.”

A quote from Haven – “Hold on to your hats, you’re about to have a jam-packed holiday! We’re just around the corner from the centre of Cleethorpes. But we also have thrills (on our climbing wall), spills (in our outdoor Space Bowl flume) and pleny for you sport-mad superstars!

A little bit about the site from a touring caravan owner – Wild Duck, Norfolk. Such a family a family friendly site, set in woodland and close to the beach and closer still to the river. Pitch sizes are generous and you’re always asked where abouts you would like to set up. There’s a children’s play area right beside the campsite and the entertainment/pub etc is a minuscule walk away, suitable for buggies and wheelchair users too. The facilities are excellent and regularly cleaned. There’s one main water station but lots of taps, electricity points also have tv aerial points. It’s the only Haven site I keep going back to and will keep going back to!

A quote from Haven – “Woodland retreat by the Norfolk Broads. If you go down to the woods today, you’re sure of a relaxing time! Our park is hidden among the trees and lakes in a pretty forest. It’s hard to believe we’re only a few miles from the sea. We have a restaurant, play area, sports court and pools. Or you can hire a bike. Cycle along shady paths and spot butterflies, hedgehogs and (of course) wild ducks. Pit, pat, waddle, plop!” Click to book a stay at Wild Duck.
