Top five tips for buying a static caravan

Going on holiday whenever you want… waking up to beautiful surroundings… having the comfort of your own home… ah, what a life! With unbeatable views and stunning interiors, our static caravans for sale in the Lake District offer all of this and more.

You can escape as often as you like when you have your own holiday home, giving you the perfect opportunity to spend quality time with your family while exploring the Lakes.

But buying a static caravan is a big investment and there are a few factors to consider before you go for it. Whatever your requirements and budget, we have an extensive range here at North Lakes and we provide all of our customers with the professional advice you need when considering a purchase.

In this post, we highlight our top 10 tips to help you make the best decision for you.

1. Choose a financing option

Often, this is a concern for people who’d love to own their own holiday home but are unable to find a finance solution. That’s why, at North Lakes, we offer our customers flexible options with their purchase. Through our partnership with Bridlington Caravans and Black Horse Finance, we only need a 20% deposit – freeing you up to spread the costs. On new caravans, you can even spread the costs over a 10-year period, should this be easier for you. We’re more than happy to chat through the different options with you and build a package that’s specific to your needs. Just contact a member of our friendly team!

2. Decide on the location

This will be your new holiday destination, so you need to choose a location you love. The northern Lake District offers stunning areas of natural beauty and there is always something new to explore! Our park is a very special place, providing all of our residents with the perfect getaway, whilst our 77 acres of lakes, woods, and open areas attract an abundance of wildlife from afar.

The Lake District is a tranquil, peaceful part of the country and you’ll never fall short of things to do if you decide to make one of our static caravans your home. Perfect for the whole family, our park is nestled in the heart of the countryside, near to Solway Firth, the mountains of Dumfries and Galloway, and the lovely coastal town of Silloth.

3. Check the park facilities

It’s all well and good being in a nice location, but if your holiday park does not offer you the facilities you need to make your holidays really great, your investment won’t go as far. Do some research into what is important to you when looking for a holiday away. For example, at North Lakes, our holiday home owners benefit from double glazing, south-facing decks, WiFi, on-site laundry facilities, a lovely pub, and even a golf course! We always make sure that our customers get excellent value and we design all of our accommodation the highest standard, with modern furniture and luxurious interiors. After all, this is your holiday home – it should be something a bit special!

4. Talk to the holiday park owners

Adding a personal touch to your holidays can make them all the more enjoyable. Talk to the holiday park owners to get to know the surroundings better and ask about lesser-known areas to make each visit unique. It’s important to feel relaxed and at home at your new holiday home so, at North Lakes, we’re happy to chat with every one of our visitors and homeowners about anything – from best restaurant recommendations to secret spots within the Lakes. We can also give you plenty of professional advice about our static caravans for sale in the Lake District, including financing options.

5. Try before you buy

What better way to test out a new static caravan than to rent one out first? This will provide you with the perfect opportunity to decide whether or not buying your very own caravan is right for you.
