More and more honeymooners are choosing to go camping and on caravan holidays, a recent poll has found.

Carried out by Best of British holiday parks group, the number of newly weds coming straight from their nuptials has dramatically risen, with more new couples choosing to holiday in Britain's caravan and camping sites.

During a difficult economic climate, honeymooners are taking to the country's natural parks for the comfort, space and privacy that can be found for their post-matrimony time.

So popular are these destinations becoming that the sites themselves are beginning to tailor themselves to the demand.

Places like Woodovis Park in Devon's Tamar Valley have added luxury spa elements and additional "glamping" facilities, whilst Stroud Hill Park in Cambridgeshire goes one better, providing a timber-built barn to be used for wedding receptions.

"What every couple wants to bring back from their honeymoon is happy memories, and high quality surroundings go a long way to setting the scene for creating these," Chairman of Best of British Claire Jeavons said.

"We think that this spring could see more couples than ever making a romantic start to their married lives on our members' holiday parks."
