Isle of Wight caravanning holiday 'may have health benefits'

Isle of Wight caravanning holidays could be in demand this summer following the publication of a study into the health benefits of taking such a break.

According to Jon Dale, PR manager at The Camping and Caravanning Club, reports claim camping makes people emotionally richer.

Research carried out by John Moores University discovered 85 per cent of adult campers believe that it can make you healthier, while almost half agreed it should be prescribed on the NHS.

"The results conclusively proved that the health benefits of camping and caravanning were very important," Mr Dale said.

It is likely the Isle of Wight will be among the top destinations in the UK this year for those who want to spend some of their summer enjoying a caravanning holiday.

Earlier in the month, it was revealed that the island is the best place in the south-east of the country in terms of the quality of its beaches.
