Wyldecrest Parks is returning to The Caravan Extravaganza (The Lawns), on the 5th and 6th September at Cottingham near Hull, as well as Omar, one of our manufacturers. And this time Omar will display four luxury lodge models, including two stunning new models that will be unveiled for the first time: the Ikon Lodge, based on Omar’s popular, contemporary styled park home model and the Apex, which although retains the distinctive exterior of the original, benefits from stylish new interior design.

To whet your appetite, here’s a bit more about the Omar luxury lodges that will be on display: http://www.omar.co.uk/news/view/omar-unveils-two-new-luxury-lodges-at-the-lawns.

The rise and rise of Britain’s Gypsy king

How to keep the kids entertained on the road to your Holidays

Untitled design

To help you keep the little ones entertained while you’re on the road, check out these ideas to help you make travelling more fun, by Safeguard.

Games

There are lots of games that you can play while you’re sat in the car for a long time. Simple games such as choosing a car brand or color, counting how many of that type you spot, and the person with the highest spots wins.

Or if it’s raining, pick a water droplet at the top of the window and the one that reaches the bottom of the window first wins. And of course, there’s the classic ‘I Spy’ – made more challenging by being on the move.

For a more lengthy game, try the alphabet game. This is where you go through the alphabet to list things like fruit, countries, bands or books that begin with each letter. There’s also the continuous story game where each person adds the next sentence onto a story – it’s a fun way to use your imagination and an opportunity to be a bit silly.

If all else fails, try the quiet game. See who can stay silent the longest and you might get the chance to enjoy 30 seconds of peace and quiet.

Gadgets

If your little ones are lucky enough to own their own games consoles, why not take them along with you? If you’d prefer not to hear their beeps, invest in headphones for them. But be sure to pack spare batteries or a charger to make sure they can play their games on the journey home too.

A portable DVD player will keep them busy for hours on end. Plus, watching a film is likely to make them sleepy. Alternatively, you can all listen to audio books on CD or through a smart phone.

If they’re likely to get restless, try something a little more active. Give them a camera so they can take pictures of their journey and create a scrapbook of photographs when they get home.

Car crafts

Pack a colouring book, crayons/felt tips and some sticky tape and suggest creating some artwork to stick on their window. Post it notes are good for this too.

If you’d like to add an educational element to the journey, give the kids a map and get them to follow your route and circle the landmarks they pass and write something about them next to it.

Make a memory book

This can start even before you set off. Get the children to keep an account of every day of their holiday – firstly packing, then the journey, and what they do each day from then on. Add photos too. As well as creating a lovely memory book, it may come in handy should the children have to do a school project on what they did over the holidays.

And if all else fails, you can always resort to tasty treats and a good old fashioned sing along!

What to look for when buying your ideal Park Home?

What to look for when buying your ideal park home

1) Park location

The park location is essential for most people looking to start a brand new lifestyle in a mobile home park. First, you need to decide which area you’d like to live. Some people choose to stay in their local areas whilst others choose to move away from the rush of the big cities or near to relatives.

Once you’ve decided on an area, carefully research the park or parks of interest with a particular focus on the local amenities and attractions. Research plays a vital part of the process. It’s also important to make sure you visit the park beforehand, or as many times you feel necessary, to get a real feel for the park home lifestyle.

In all 43 Wyldecrest Parks across the country, they have a dedicated and friendly team always available to help you choose the perfect park and location to suit your requirements, tastes, expectations and budgets.

2) Accessibility and transportation links

Being able to easily get around with minimal fuss is one of the most important things to consider for those who are looking to choose their ideal park and park home. For those with disabilities or problems getting about, being close to some reliable and easily accessible transportation links is crucial.

Wyldecrest Parks pride themselves on their amazing park portfolio, with each park sitting within such different regions and locations spread across the whole UK, they offer a wide range of prime settings with fantastic access.

3) Close to amenitiesScreen Shot 2015-07-20 at 14.12.56

Being close to all the local amenities required for your day-to-day living such as supermarkets, doctors surgeries, dentists and restaurants is a must for most people.

Try to explore the surroundings of your chosen park and/or the closest town to see what range of amenities and activities they have to offer you in order to fulfil your daily needs and lifestyle.

When choosing the locations of their parks, Wyldecrest always have their customers in mind, making sure they are within easy reach of supermarkets, local shops and medical services to museums, nature reserves or even golf courses. So their owners can have that lifestyle they have always dreamed about. Tell them your ideal lifestyle and they’ll have the perfect park home and location for you.


4) Choose a credible manufacturerScreen Shot 2015-07-20 at 14.13.08

Whether you choose a second hand mobile park home, or decide to build your own bespoke home, you need to make sure that you choose a credible manufacturer that can not only provide the specification and meet your expectations, but can guarantee the quality of your dream home.

Wyldecrest Parks only work with credible and industry leading manufacturers so they can guarantee you will be happy with your park home. Check that the manufacturer offers a warranty to cover and protect you from any mishaps.

All Wyldecrest park homes have a 10 year warranty for this very reason. Wyldecrest are committed to providing all their customers with reasonably priced and attractive homes so they can have an enjoyable yet affordable lifestyle, whilst still living the dream of having a spacious and modern home.

5) Choose a credible park operator!

Always research the Park Home operator of interest along with others, to make sure you understand the market and can make an informed decision of which operator would be right for you. Focus on their business values and ethics, would these suit you and your dream lifestyle? What are the benefits of being an owner? Check the business credentials and accreditations, awards etc.

Wyldecrest Parks is the only Park Home Operator which is ISO 9001 accredited, meaning that they meet strict guidelines and government standards, with yearly checks and monitoring. They also pride themselves on being the only residential park home operator to have a nationwide portfolio across England, Scotland and Wales.

180g granulated sugar

3 eggs

225g self-raising flour

1tbsp milk

2 kiwis (pureed with a fork)

– Beat the butter and sugar until completely incorporated and pale. Then add the eggs, one by one, whilst continuing to beat between each addition.

– Slowly, and with the help of a metallic spoon, gently incorporate the flour into the mixture.

– Finally add the milk to get a smooth and uniformed consistency, followed by the vanilla extract and pureed kiwis.

– Divide this batter between two identical round tins (20cm diameter) and place them in a preheated oven to 180C  for about 25 minutes, or until the cake is cooked through.

– Remove from the oven and allow the cakes to cool slightly before carefully removing them from the tins. Leave them to cool.

– Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Pour the cream cheese in a bowl and add the honey. Beat this mixture a little bit before adding a few drops of lime  juice, a little bit at a time, until you get a consistency and flavour that suits your taste. Refrigerate until it’s time to finish the cake.
– Once the cakes are cold, place the first one on a serving plate and spread the strawberry jam on it, topping with the cream cheese and lime filling. Arrange the kiwi slices over it. Place the second sponge cake on top, sprinkle with icing sugar and enjoy!

And for your Summer party, why not try to do some cupcakes? 🙂
