Holiday Caravans

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens when a caravan is sold on the park?

The purchaser is automatically given a new Holiday Licence Agreement for the duration of the remainder of the Licence Period.


How much commission do you charge?

We charge a maximum of fifteen percent plus VAT on the sale price.


What does the commission represent?

It is our compensation for the pitch being tied up for a further period, preventing us from selling a new caravan.


Are caravans connected to mains services?

All caravans are connected to mains electricity, water and sewerage. LPG gas is supplied in bottles.


Can I sublet the caravan?

No, but your friends and family can use it as long as they do not pay you for it.


Who is responsible for the pitch?

Caravan owners on all parks (except The Hollies) must take responsibility for all maintenance, gardening and grass cutting on their own pitches. We only take responsibility for communal areas, verges and park boundaries.


Are pets allowed on the park?

Caravan owners may bring pets to the park but guests may not. Pets must be registered at the office and are subject to the conditions of our permission letter.


When does the park open?

All of our parks are open from 1 March to 31 October (the holiday season). On certain parks, caravan owners may extend the season to include November and December (subject to an additional pitch fee).


What happens during the close season?

Owners are not permitted to stay in their caravans, but can visit them for maintenance purposes.

Can the caravan be my main residence?

No, caravans are strictly for holiday use only. Your own permanent residence must be kept throughout the caravan ownership period.


How long can a caravan remain on the park?

Each caravan has a defined Licence Period, which is recorded in the Holiday Licence Agreement.


What is a Holiday Licence Agreement?

It is a document that sets out the terms upon which a caravan owner is entitled to place their caravan on a park. These terms include payment of the pitch fee and other charges, a requirement to insure the caravan and how and when the agreement will come to an end.

Are there any other rules or conditions?

Yes, Park Rules are issued by us from time to time. They cover the rules of conduct and practice applicable to the occupation and use of caravans and other facilities at the park. Click here to download a copy of our current rules.


How long is the Licence Period?

We grant a period of twenty years from the date that the caravan was first bought by a consumer (Date Of First Purchase).


What happens when the Licence Period expires?

The caravan will be removed from the park and either taken away by the owner or sold off-site to a trade buyer. Should the caravan prove un-saleable (too old or deteriorated) we can arrange for it to be scrapped.


Is there an age restriction on the resale of a caravan on the park?

Yes, caravans may only be sold on the park for fifteen years from the Date Of First Purchase. Once this period has lapsed they may be kept on for a further five years (to the end of the Licence Period) but can not be sold or transferred on the park.
