The UK has an enduring love affair with the caravan. It’s estimated that are currently 555,000 touring caravans on the roads, but not every caravan owner actually hits the open road. In fact, in 2019 there were 365,000 caravan holiday homes across Britain and they continue to grow in popularity. That’s because they’re increasingly seen as the cool and affordable alternative to bricks and mortar.
So why are people of all backgrounds snapping up static caravans? And what are the advantages of caravan ownership?
Want an investment that isn’t subject to the new Buy to Let and Stamp Duty rules? A static caravan in a great location makes a very smart investment with a high return when let out in high season. But static caravans also open up holiday home ownership to everyone and there are plenty of flexible funding options available to make your dreams come true.
Getting away from it all
You may dream of relocating abroad, but actually just getting away for the weekend can really recharge your batteries without all the disruption of a life-changing move. And an out of season staycation can be a terrific chance to explore our incredible countryside without the crowds.
Buy a holiday home on a park with plenty of facilities and you’ll have the time of your life. Contemporary caravan parks offer superb on-site entertainment and activities that mean you have everything within easy reach.
Choose a park that offers the lifestyle you want, from kids’ play parks to great dining and you’ll have an asset you’ll want to return to time and again. It can even be rented to cover your annual running costs.
Caravans are cool
If you’re snobby about caravans, think again. Modern static caravans are built and equipped to incredibly high standards, with fantastic kitchens and en-suite bathrooms. Shop around and you’ll find caravans with decking areas and even their own hot tubs! Your holiday home may be so luxurious you don’t want to go home again.
The real advantage is that you can purchase a home that suits your lifestyle and you may even find that some lodges can be designed to your specifications. That means you can enjoy the best of everything at a fraction of the cost of a bricks and mortar holiday home.
We all benefit from a good holiday, and once or twice a year never seems like enough. If you crave the better diet, exercise, stimulation, social interaction and good night’s sleep you always get when you get away, then what are you waiting for?
Choosing holiday homes in the UK mean you can get away whenever you choose and get all the great benefits of a first class break – and your pets can come too if you choose an animal-friendly location!
Caravan parks can be great places to relax, with everything within easy reach. But if you want to broaden your horizons, you’ll find that most parks are within easy reach of some great attractions.
Whether you’re a history buff who wants to find out more about our incredible heritage or a thrill seeker looking for the next adrenaline rush, you’ll find that most parks are within easy reach of some must-see attractions.
