Should I buy a Static Caravan?

Renting a static caravan can be a fantastic money saving option for families to enjoy a great value holiday in the UK. But rather than renting, have you ever thought about buying one of your own?

With the uncertainty of Brexit and the current economic climate it’s no surprise that more and more Brits are deciding to enjoy ‘staycations’ and explore the many attractions that the UK has to offer. If you find yourself returning to the same area or even the same holiday park year after year it may be worth investing in a holiday home of your own. Here are our top reasons why;

Convenience – We offer static caravans and holiday lodges for sale at 5 of our holiday parks with seasons ranging from 11-12 months. Our visitors are able to enjoy their holiday homes throughout the year without the stress or hassle of trying to book last minute accommodation. Static owners are free to come and go as they please so there’s no need to plan your trip weeks in advance – simply pack a bag and travel at your own convenience.

Comfort – Our holiday homes are available in an almost infinite variety of styles and layouts. All newer models come with central heating, double glazing and extra insulation so you can be as comfortable in your holiday home during the winter months as you are during spring and summer.

New units are equipped with everything that you might find in your own home including electrical and white goods – and there’s also the added bonus of having a toilet that is connected to the mains, so no more inconvenient visits to the Elsan Point!

Cost – We offer ‘ground rent’ on our parks from as little as £2,500 per season (July 2018) – that works out at just £48 per week, a fraction of the cost of many touring parks not to mention any hotel or B&B!

And the initial out-lay may not be as much as you think, many pre-owned statics can be purchased in ‘like new’ condition to suit those on a lower budget.

Space – The average static caravan is a ‘roomy’ 35x12ft, considerably larger than most touring caravans (and even some hotel rooms!) with lodges reaching a whopping 40x20ft, so there’s plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy without getting under each others feet.

Most statics come with a 2-bedroom layout (a real plus at bed time) and many units also feature a pull-out bed in the lounge area, that’s sleeping space for up to 6 people!

Most models can also be fitted with decking, so as well as all of that indoor space to enjoy, you can also secure your own piece of the outdoors.

Community – Our holiday parks tend to attract like-minded people – and staying in such close proximity to each other our static owners get to know each other. There’s always a familiar face to ask for a helping-hand should you need it.

So, if you’re looking for convenience and comfort without compromising on space then purchasing a static caravan or holiday lodge may well be a cost-effective solution for you and your family to enjoy your holidays together.

At West Country Parks we offer a fantastic range of new and pre-owned holiday homes from the top manufacturers sited at 5 unique holiday parks, all located in beautiful Somerset. With ‘adult only’ and ‘family friendly’ options we are confident that you will find your ideal holiday park with us.
