During the last week of August/beginning of September we finally headed to Haven Primrose Valley. We have been looking forward to this holiday for what feels like ages. This was our first Haven holiday and our first time we have visited the area. So we had to look into what we needed to pack for a Haven holiday and what we could hire. We absolutely loved the Yorkshire Coast and definitely want to be heading up that way again in the near future. 

We had decided to go with a Saver Caravan as we were on a budget. In general the accommodation types are pretty standard from resort to resort. You are able to see the different caravan grades and specifics over on the Haven website.

We personally felt that the caravan was the ideal size for us as a family of three. We decided not to choose our holiday home and ended up on Pine Ridge which was an ideal part of the site as we were close to the main facilities. We were prepared after hearing that there would be no WiFi in the caravan and that signal would be limited. We made sure to pack DVDs and download some of Blake's favourite train videos to his tablet in advance so it wasn't a problem. I used mainly my phone data but it was definitely patchy so this is something you may want to consider when booking with Haven.

Living/Dining area
The living area had a large corner sofa that was more than enough space for the 3 of us. The saver caravans have a 32 inch Freeview TV with DVD player built in and surrounded by storage. The living room also has a table and bench with enough room for 4 people to sit around.

The kitchen in a Saver Caravan although small is well equipped with a microwave, oven, kettle, toaster and various other equipment such as plates, glasses, pans etc. There is a small undercounter fridge/freezer and near the door of the caravan is a boiler cupboard where there is also a dustpan and brush. They definitely have the basics you will need on holiday but it's worth remembering you will need to pack items such as washing up liquid and tea towels as they aren't included.

Although small the saver caravan has a shower, toilet and sink with a radiator and somewhere to put a towel which you must remember to bring yourself. 
A bath mat, hand wash and toilet rolls are other essentials you would need to bring yourself as they aren't provided. I found that there isn't much room for toiletries but it honestly didn't bother us too much. The shower itself was easy to use and we had no issues with water pressure or temperature of the water. 

The bigger of the two rooms with a double bed also has bedside tables on each side, over-bed storage, wardrobes and drawers, as well as a make-up/ desk area. We slept fine whilst there with no issues with the mattress. I did however need two pillows as the pillows are thin and to be honest we are use to memory foam ones.

The second bedroom squeezes in two single beds which I think definitely are smaller than standard single beds. There is also a small bedside table, over bed storage and a wardrobe.
