What To Pack for a Caravan Holiday

We have created a checklist on what to pack for a caravan holiday, so whether you’re caravanning for the first time, or you’re a seasoned caravanner, we hope this helps!

Caravan Packing List: Essentials to Keep in Your Caravan

These are the essentials we recommend you should leave in your caravan.

  • Toilet chemicals
  • Large water container and carrier
  • Water pump
  • Large waste container
  • Gas bottle & regulator
  • Fire blanket/extinguisher
  • Hitch lock and cover (this will also help reduce your caravan insurance)

  • Spare tyre and pump
  • Good quality outdoor table and chairs
  • First aid kit (including plasters, pain medication, antiseptic wipes, blister plasters, etc.)
  • Reusable plates, bowls and cups (if you’re trying to be more eco-friendly like us, read our blog on how to be sustainable eco-friendly whilst camping)

  • Cooking utensils
  • Bin liners
  • TV
  • Toilet roll

Disabled Friendly

Sumners Ponds is a accessible fishery for those with a disability. The best lakes to fish are either Farm Pond or Betty’s Lake.

Farm Pond has a purpose built accessible platform with a ramp from the ajoining car park. This spaceous decked area has three large swims which are all disabled priority. The car park for this lake is directly next to the closest fishing swims so there is not far to travel with your equipment.

Betty’s Lake has two disabled parking areas which are very close to the nearest wood-chipped swims.
