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 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 of the best static caravans to buy here at North Lakes, and we provide all our customers with the professional advice you need when considering a purchase.

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

Our top tips for buying the best static caravan

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 Harewood Asset 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 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 amazing, 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 homeowners 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 our accommodation to the highest standard, with modern furniture and luxurious interiors. After all, this is your holiday home – it should be something special!

4. Choose your must-haves

Your new caravan is going to become your home away from home, so it’s vital that it has everything that you desire! For example, do you want a model with a spare bedroom so you can host your loved ones for a relaxing staycation? Do you want a large, luxurious kitchen to cook in, or are you willing to sacrifice kitchen space for additional storage?

Be sure to arrange a viewing of any static caravans for sale that catch your eye. Our team here at North Lakes would love to show you around and help you select the best holiday home that ticks all the boxes!

5. Talk to the holiday park owners

Adding a personal touch to your holidays can make them even 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 and 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 the best static caravans to buy for your needs, including financing options.
