The Park

Many holiday home owners recommend taking a short stay or holiday at your chosen park before securing the deal, that way you can get a feel for the area. Whether you prefer an abundance of amenities or a quiet park, it needs to be right for you! Certain parks have restrictions, such as pet and lettings so don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Annual Running Costs

These can depend from park to park. But generally include pitch fees, management fees, insurance, gas and electricity. Often people forget about the little things, like bedding and kitchen utensils so consider these too.
