Yorkshire Wildlife Park has launched their new Roar and Snore staycation which lets families pitch up just outside the resort.

As Brits look at booking holidays nearer to home current year, camping as well as caravan trips are booming with parks selling out throughout the summer season.

This new staycation option at the wildlife park includes a 10m x 15m camping pitch – enough for 1 large tent or two smaller tents – along with on-site washroom and shower facilities.

The Guests will be able to camp just beside the entrance of the park, and lucky campers may even get to listen to the lions roaring in the morning from inside.

While tickets to the park are not included, families will get discounted rates to visit, also it is just a brief walk into the entrance.

Also on-site is going to be food facilities including a pizzeria with pizza, beer and wine available, as well as a breakfast wagon.

The Guests will need to pre-book and bring their own tents, while latest safety rules are going to be in position including 2m distances and extra cleaning programs.

The tickets start from £50 per night, with additional nights costing £40, and are on sale from July 22. The camping pitches are available for up to 6 people per pitch.

Reduced park day tickets cost £15.50 for kids and £19.50 for adults.

If you prefer some alone time with the animals, you can also book an out-of-hours Safari tour, taking place an hour before or following the park opens.

The camping breaks are a lot more popular as Wales and Scotland open up for travelers this month.

They might also be cheaper – Martin Smith, founder of Campsites.co.uk, suggested that campsites will likely offer reduced rates to Brits this year after the VAT cuts from 20 per cent to five per cent.

He said: “Just over half of our bookable campsites are VAT registered, so the cut in VAT is fantastic news for them.”

“ Either they will make slightly more on each booking (about £18 on an average booking worth £150 or more) to put towards lost earnings and extra costs this summer – or they will have a little bit of wiggle room to bring prices down to help fill available capacity.”
