4) A team you can trust

You wouldn’t go on holiday with just anyone! We’re a friendly team who are all very passionate about what we do. So passionate, that even when we’re not working, most of us enjoy going on a Canvas holiday too.

Lots of us have worked for Canvas Holidays for decades, and have spent many seasons helping out on campsites as couriers, so we really understand what matters to you on your holiday.

You don't just need to take our word for it - we were voted the Best Medium Camping & Mobile Holiday Company, Best Family Holiday Company and Best Holiday Company to Western Europe at the British Travel Awards 2015!

5) 50 years of camping adventures

Before Canvas Holidays if you wanted to enjoy camping in Europe, you had to take all your equipment with you.

One family, the Cuthberts, really cherished their French camping holidays, but began to love less and less the hassle of packing and pitching their equipment each time they went away. So way back in the 1960s, one Cuthbert said to the other – “What if we left all this here for other families to use?”

And so Canvas Holidays was born, and with our arrival came a new, fuss-free way to explore Europe.

Thanks to the Cuthberts’ great idea, we've been offering family-friendly European camping adventures for 5 decades. And we’re really proud of that.
