Choosing The Best Static Caravan Park

If you are looking to buy a static caravan, then one of the things that you will need to consider, while also ensuring that you buy a decent quality caravan, is that you opt for a caravan park that has plenty of decent features and amenities, is not too expensive, and is located in a good spot with plenty of entertainment and places to visit in the local area. If you don’t pay enough attention to the caravan park, then no matter how good the caravan itself is, you are likely to be disappointed with your purchase.

There are a number of costs associated with buying and owning a static caravan. While the biggest individual cost will be that of buying the caravan itself, ground rent and annual fees can total several thousands of pounds, so if you own a static caravan on the same site for ten years, then ground fees can quickly become one of the biggest overall costs. Ensure that you know the full extent of charges, so if you ground rent doesn’t include water charges, for example, then don’t forget to include these in your calculations.


The amenities and facilities that are available are an important consideration. No matter how well prepared you are, there is likely to be something that you forget to take with you. If you don’t fancy having to drive to a local supermarket whenever you run out of items like milk, then an on-site shop can be extremely convenient, while washing machines and even a take-away can provide you with further benefits.

Beyond the practical features of a caravan park, there is also the entertainment to think about. If you are taking kids away with you, then they and you will benefit if there is entertainment for them. This can vary from indoor and outdoor play areas to amusement arcades, and even evening entertainment for the children and the whole family. A club bar, professional entertainment, and additional bars can be found, with entertainment including evening bingo and night-time cabaret.

A caravan park in a prime location means that you won’t get bored no matter how often, or for how long, you visit each time you go away. While some buyers prefer a remote location, if you want to make sure that you have something to do, even on wet days, then a better idea is to choose a caravan park that is located out of town but close to local entertainment and local venues. You can choose coastal, countryside, or those that are close to cities and big towns.

Buying the best possible caravan, but in a park that isn’t ideally suited to your needs, means that you will still be disappointed with your purchase. In contrast, finding a suitable caravan in a park that has the features, amenities, and access to local entertainment means that you will be able to enjoy a varied holiday that is ideally suited to you and to everybody else that visits your static caravan with you.
