Perfect UK breaks for over 60s
A getaway from everyday life is always welcome, no matter your age. From the shorter distance to the lack of airport queues, staycations are a firm favourite, particularly for people aged sixty and over. Whether you're retired or still working, the ease and familiarity of a break in the UK are great if you're looking to enjoy a slower pace, providing the calmness and comfort you want from a holiday.
Locations perfect for a slower-paced break
Escaping the hustle and bustle of your day-to-day to a place of serenity and relaxation is exactly what a number of our locations provide. Whether that be a coastal break admiring the stunning cliff tops and sea views or a countryside retreat surrounded by the very best nature has to offer. Here are some of our holiday park locations that are ideal for over 60s wanting a quiet and leisurely holiday.
From Cornwall and Devon all the way down south, to Northumberland and Scotland way up north, we have coastal locations across the UK. Beach holidays are great for the young and elderly alike, from the tranquil aesthetic of the golden sand and blue waters to the health benefits of sea air and vitamin D. We have a range of holiday parks just a short 5-10 minute walk from the beach, perfect for those who don’t want to or are unable to walk far and have the beach right on their doorstep. There’s also a range of accessible beaches across Britain, a number of which are located close to select Parkdean Resorts holiday parks, so everyone and anyone can enjoy all the British coastline has to offer!
You can’t get much more peaceful than the countryside, surrounded by woodland and greenery our holiday parks in these locations are a great place to soak up nature and quite literally have a breath of fresh air. Countryside retreats are a great holiday for those over 60 due to the quiet and slow pace of the rural environment and with Parkdean Resorts' locations in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty like Todber Valley Holiday Park in Lancashire, Tummel Valley Holiday Park in the Scottish Highlands and the Lake District - you can become one with nature no matter your preferred UK region.
Holiday types for people aged 60 and over
The types of UK getaways at Parkdean Resorts that may appeal to older guests and holidaymakers, include:
The quintessential British holiday; a caravan holiday is great for those over 60 because of its practicality and comfort. Our static caravans have an array of features, depending on the caravan type you choose. From traditional caravans that are as light and spacious as they are cosy, to central lounge caravans with communal space at the heart of the layout - perfect for spending quality time with your friends, family or grandchildren. Certain caravan types even feature extras like dishwashers - because who wants to be cleaning pots and pans on their holiday?
A UK break in a caravan is a great holiday for over 60s as you have the perfect balance of home comforts and luxury. If you opt to self-cater, you can whip up your favourite meals with ease thanks to our fully-equipped kitchens and you can drink your morning coffee soaking up the surroundings on a veranda. So whether you want to kick your feet up and watch TV cosied up on the sofa or explore all our holiday parks have to offer, we’ve got you covered at Parkdean Resorts.
Luxury lodge holidays
For those wanting ultimate luxury, our lodge holidays provide peak opulence - making them the perfect choice if comfort is a priority. From being kitted out with all the appliances and amenities you could possibly need to our cosy decor that truly makes you feel like you’re stepping into a home-from-home. If you’re planning a holiday in the summer you can make the most of the warmer weather on a private veranda, or if you’re opting for a winter break we have inviting fireplaces so you can curl up on the sofa with a cuppa and unwind. Some lodges even include hot tubs, perfect for relaxing on an evening and having some much-needed TLC - you've earned it!

To truly feel home comfort, if you own a touring caravan or motorhome you can bring it along and set up camp at one of our select holiday parks.
