Whether you're looking to relax and stay warm or head out and explore some of the most amazing areas of the UK, we have a Christmas break to suit everyone's needs. Planning a perfect Christmas break for 2022 can be challenging, when you’re trying to make sure that everyone is suitably entertained. Luckily at Parkdean Resorts, we have some fantastic festive activities planned, and delicious food at the ready to please every member of the family. So as our staff begin to deck the halls of our holiday parks, grab your best Christmas jumper or Santa hat and read on for a complete guide to planning the best Christmas breaks in 2022.

Last year’s most popular Christmas breaks locations

If you’re searching for some location inspiration before booking your break, look no further. We took a look back at your favourite holiday parks to visit during the last festive season. Remember that these are just a small selection of our festive parks!

Trecco Bay

‘Tis the season to be jolly at Trecco Bay Holiday Park as our largest park is decked out with festive decorations to help you get into the spirit from the moment you arrive. You can choose to spend Christmas, Twixmas or New Year at Trecco Bay, with a whole host of magical moments throughout - wrap up warm and take a Christmas Day stroll on the beach or grab your party hats and spend New Year’s Eve in the Showdome.

If a cosy winter wonderland is what you’re after then Warmwell Holiday Park is the perfect location for your Christmas break. You’ll feel the jolly atmosphere seeping through this woodland park from early December when guests start to arrive for a wintry getaway and our Warmwell festive season runs through to New Year. Whether you visit the Christmas markets, have breakfast with Santa or whizz down the outdoor ski slope, you can enjoy lots of festive fun at this fabulous holiday park. So why not put your feet up in a luxury lodge this Christmas? You deserve it! You might even spot one of Warmwell’s resident deer straight out of your window.

Deep in the heart of the Lake District… Santa Claus is coming to town! Grab your jumpers and walking boots and spend Christmas or New Year at Fallbarrow Holiday Park, taking in the breathtaking winter on Lake Windermere. Picture yourself wrapping up warm for a walk by the lake on Christmas Day or drinking something fizzy in your lodge as you prepare to celebrate a special New Year’s Eve holiday.

Winter on Lake Windermere


Vauxhall is well known for providing you with some incredible entertainment and experiences. This park is a playground for the young and old and a Christmas break here has all you’d expect and more. Put your feet up and relax as our troopers prepare to wow you with spectacular Christmas shows. You can even meet Santa's reindeer at Vauxhall this year! Situated close to Great Yarmouth, head there for a festive walk on the beach, if you haven’t eaten too much delicious food to move!

It’s time for a blissful festive getaway to one of the prettiest places in the UK - Devon. Experience the festive winter wonderland where you'll find Christmas markets and so much more! Situated right on the amazing shores of Croyde Bay, Ruda Holiday Park is an idyllic spot to choose for a Christmas break in 2010. You can stay at Ruda throughout the festive season from Christmas to New Year’s Eve. A Christmas Day stroll along the beach to help your pudding settle sounds perfect, doesn’t it?

Festive activities available at Parkdean Resorts

We know that you (quite rightly) have high expectations for your perfect Christmas break, so we’ve handpicked our on-park activity offering to help make sure you create the most amazing yuletide memories. Please remember that activity times and availability does vary by park so ask one of our friendly staff members when you arrive to find out more.

It wouldn’t be a Christmas holiday without a chance to meet the man himself, so you and your little ones can have breakfast with Santa! The magical atmosphere starts the moment you walk in as you’re greeted by Santa’s elves and the kids might even get a surprise present. You certainly won’t go hungry with plenty of delicious food being served throughout the season, whether you fancy a festive carvery or a scrumptious mince pie at the pop-up Christmas market!

We’re making the entertainment extra-special too. Join in the merry atmosphere as our troopers perform at our outstanding Christmas show and you can wrap up warm and join us for some carol singing of your favourite Christmas songs - if you don’t want to sing there’s plenty of hot chestnuts and mulled wine available. We have plenty of fun in store for the little ones too - they’ll get the chance to become one of Santa’s helpers at our very own Elf Academy and help Santa prepare for the big day. Or the chance to pet one of Santa’s reindeer is sure to be a memory they’ll never forget.

Child meeting Santa

The fun doesn't stop after Christmas is over - we'll be hosting plenty of exciting entertainment over the New Year period too! Our entertainment team will make sure you dance the night away. Or, for a quieter night, why not enjoy a family party in one of our warm and cosy lodges?

There’s plenty of time to book your amazing Christmas break for 2022 - we have a selection of our holiday parks getting ready to put up their Christmas decorations and welcome you. With the magical atmosphere, delicious food and fun activities, we’ll take care of everything.
