With the start of Spring and the Easter holidays upon us, the fantastic team at Winchester Caravans is looking forward to helping you make the most of the new season, whether you are considering purchasing a caravan or looking for some new accessories to make your next trip and beyond all the more enjoyable. We have even posted an Easter-themed recipe that will surely be a hit with family and friends alike!

Easter Cakes

With the lighter evenings and warmer days approaching, Easter is just around the corner and with it, of course, comes the school holidays! What a perfect opportunity to enjoy the company of family and friends whether it be for a day, the weekend or even the whole week.

There is nothing more exciting than enjoying the great outdoors with your loved ones and caravan. The team here at Winchester Caravans is always around to help you with everything you may need to prepare for the upcoming year.

Here are just a few ways in which Winchester Caravans can help you to make your next trips away extra special.

  • The new Cadac BBQs are perfect for preparing those hearty English breakfasts in the morning (or mid-afternoon!)

  • We have recently received an impressive and innovate range of new kitchenware from Charles Viancin and Summit that will add a colourful splash to any kitchen

  • Our new, lightweight storage products are as cheerful as they are practical and come in a large variety of shapes and sizes

  • We have extended our collection of reclining chairs to make sure you are able to find the perfect space to relax and unwind as the rest of the world slowly passes by

  • Our ever-enthusiastic team is available to give you advice and help, give your caravan its annual service and if necessary, as an optional extra, give your caravan that pre-season wash so that it is in the best possible condition going into the start of the season.

Easter has always been a great time to embark on your next adventure and not only is it the perfect chance to shake away the cobwebs unwanted cobwebs, but it is also a great time for families to try baking something a little bit special. We have provided you with a classic, tasty treat below to get you started.

From James, David, myself and all the members of the team, we wish you all a safe and happy caravanning season. We look forward to seeing you over the Easter weekend to enjoy a Creme Egg with us. Our Easter opening hours can be found at the bottom of this post.
