Choosing the right park

There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when finding a holiday park. Are the facilities right for you? How long is the park open throughout the year? What’s the local area like? How close do you need it to be to your own home?

Pitch fees explained

It’s not just the surrounding area of the park you need to think about but also what pitches are available to you - make sure you check the fees for each different pitch. While the purchase price of your caravan or lodge covers the cost of the holiday home itself, the pitch fee is essentially the ground rent you pay for its pitch.
