We went to Scotland for 4 days and 3 nights from 18-21 August. We stayed at Haven Seton Sands Holiday Park. It’s a different kind of holiday accommodation from what we would normally book. It’s not a hotel or inn or Airbnb or a typical resort. Instead, we were staying in a static caravan. This is definitely a very different experience.
It was summer and it was the summer holiday season so there were many many staying here. We rented one that could fit 8 of us (2 children and 6 adults). It’s a good thing we managed to secure one with a toilet and a bathroom with a toilet attached. Otherwise, it might cause a problem if someone needs the toilet while there’s someone in the bathroom.
We had to bring our own towels, soap & shampoo, hairdryer, kitchen towel, dishwashing liquid, hand soap, coffee & tea, water jug with filter from home as it’s not provided. We also brought our own toilet paper in case we ran out since there were so many of us. We cooked our own breakfast there. That’s why we brought some kitchen items with us. Therefore, do plan what you want to bring by contacting them otherwise there will be charges for those things or you might need to get them from the nearest supermarket.
By the way, no Wi-Fi was included. You’ll just have to use your own phone data or mobile internet. They use gas for heating and cooking.
We did visit some show caravan units. You can even invest in one or buy one for your own stay.
The summer is not your typical summer. It was too windy and chilly for us hahaha! Don’t expect to wear a bikini or anything for the typical beach. No way to do that! Unless you are used to the strong cold wind from the sea *LOL* Look at the photos below. Seton Sands is not the white and sandy beach that you’re expecting. It is a rocky beach to the east of Port Seton, East Lothian, Scotland.
There are paid and free activities in the holiday park. However, you must book it in advance on their website. Be sure to turn up on time so that others won’t be waiting for you and delay everyone.
That’s pretty much about it. Overall stay here wasn’t too bad. Just be prepared to keep yourself warm because of the wind from the sea if you can’t stand the cold.
