Caravan Parks following WW11 were immensely popular. After a time of rationing and doing-without, a park providing comfortable housing and entertainment along a river or ocean was welcome. Families visited these parks in droves.
An English mystery, George Gently, had an episode that centered around a death in one of these parks. The time period of this episode was in the late 1960s, when cars were more available, allowing families to drive themselves to all sorts of places. This particular park was on the down slide.
In Ireland, Hazel and her family had a standing reservation, year after year, at one park...only no murders were part of the holiday experience. While her children and husband enjoyed this park, Hazel was not/is not as woman who sits around tea and gossips. Mindless conversation is not/was not her interest.
In 1984, our family was traveling around Ireland, Wales, and England. We spent one week at a simlar camp in Wales. Compact holiday houses (not caravans) were comfortable with all the facilities available.
Later in 1987, we visited another such park in Ireland, Trabolgan Cork. (You must access that site, by clicking on the underlined words. You will love the advertisement!). Great times there. Just the break we needed.
