We are two families of 4 with young children (including babies). We are visiting friends in South London from Canada and are looking for a seaside holiday to relax.
Can someone explain what a holiday park is like, and what the various types of accomodation mean. Is a caravan like what north americans call a trailer? If so we are looking for something a bit more comfortable, with self-catering.
Are there places we can get to by train or do we need to hire a car? (we are open to the latter if need be). We'd like to be within 2 or 3 hours of south London.
Can you recommend specific places for us to look into? I am overwhelmed and confused by the amount of options out there. We would also be interested in renting a cottage on the beach.
