The site itself is beautifully landscaped with plenty of open space for children to play. The facilities are also first class and ensure fun for the whole family, particularly the indoor pool complex and sports activities on offer!
Haven Seton Sands Sports & Leisure
As with most Haven holiday parks, you can expect a fantastic indoor pool. At Seton Sands, the indoor pool complex has 2 amazing pools, with plenty of space for splashing around and relaxing or swimming up and down if that's what you fancy. With a shallow area, it's great for young children and toddlers to get used to the water and have fun, especially thanks to the water torrents feature turned on by giant taps in the pool! Water based activities are plentiful and include a fun Aqua Inflatable obstacle course and Aqua Gliders, where kids can zoom around on the water on their own floating dodgem!
The Golf Course makes this park particularly special. The par 3 golf course is nestled amongst the lakes, offering you stunning views as you try for a hole in one! There's open fairways, bunkers and tee-off's over water, making it a varied course suited for golfers of all abilities.
Sporty families have plenty of options when it comes to activities. The new Climbing Wall is proving to be a favourite for those seeking a challenge. Scale the wall to reach the top and test your bravery for heights! Hire bikes or karts to have fun while exploring the park together as a family. You even have the unique opportunity to try some new sports including fencing and archery, where the activity leaders can offer coaching to help you learn or improve your skills.
If you fancy some more chilled and creative activities, there's some great options which the whole family can get involved with. Whether it's creating survival bracelets and learning new knots, creating some sand art, or using paints and crafting supplies to make some fun colourful pottery, there is something exciting for everyone!
