There’s no quick way to find and buy a static caravan, so, when you wonder where to buy a static caravan, remember that it’s more of a leisurely pursuit. Take time to discover locations and caravan models that meet your needs and requirements of a holiday home. This blog should give you suggestions of hidden gem locations like North Lakes Caravan Park.
England – The Lake District
The Lake District offers everything from blissful peace and quiet to raucous activities, and suits people of all ages. You can climb a mountain, swim in clear water lakes, dine on the local produce or simply escape to your own slice of heaven and enjoy the breathtaking views from your very own secluded decking.
The Lakes have something for everyone, and you have so much opportunity for variety, no two days need be the same. Follow in the footsteps of famous poets and artists like Wordsworth, Constable and Turner, and make The Lakes your home away from home. While there are countless villages to explore, our closest, the Victorian town of Silloth, is a definitive hidden gem.
England – Cornwall & Devon
Devon and Cornwall have long been a holiday home haven, making it a popular location for a second home. Finding the right place can be difficult as Cornwall has over 300 beaches and an array of tourist destinations fighting for your approval! Thankfully, quiet Perranporth beach is the ideal location to buy a static caravan. Life in the small Devonshire village centres around the beach, making this a haven for those who like surfing, sailing, and snorkeling.
The local beaches are stunning with miles of golden sands that make it the star attraction it is. Life is slower in Northern Devon, and has less hustle and bustle of the busier towns like St Ives, Bude, Newquay, Penzance or Padstow. Carve out a niche to make memories by buying a static caravan in this location if you enjoy the great outdoors.
Wales – Abersoch
Affectionately called the Welsh Riviera, or Cheshire-on-Sea given its close location to the English town of Cheshire, Abersoch is a true hidden gem in North Wales. It’s a picturesque village on the south side of Llyn Peninsula, in the Welsh County of Gwynedd. Its unique micro-climate means it gets an abundance of sunshine, making it an ideal holiday destination. It’s famous for wakeboarding, kayaking, and surfing and has internationally recognised sailing waters. Its walking routes have breathtaking views along the coast, where you can rock climb or jet ski. Then spend your evenings relaxing the night away at one of its many bars and restaurants.
Buy your static caravan in North Wales if you’d like to feel part of a community, with ample space to explore the great outdoors.
Scotland – Castle Sween
The mighty Cairngorms may steal the hearts of many a Traveller to Scotland, with its mountain peaks and valleys, but it’s the country’s West Coast that is its true hidden treasure. If you like peace and serenity, ancient history, and endless white sandy beaches, the West Coast of Scotland is the perfect location to buy a static caravan. There’s an abundance of Lochs for wild swimming, hills to climb, and countless unspoiled coastal paths.
Of note is Castle Sween, an off-the-beaten track caravan park, with its own ruins to explore. With a twenty-minute drive to the local town, you really will feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere, while feeling at the heart of everything.
The best location for your static caravan
Choosing the best location for your static caravan is not an easy task, and we hope we’ve provided some helpful ideas for locations. Owning a static caravan is a wonderful way to make memories, and finding the right location will add to your enjoyment. Look for sites that make you feel at home, or locations that you know have the right activities for you. Visit each location more than once, ideally staying for a few days to see if it’s what you are looking for.
There are places to avoid, like mass-owned sites, as this can affect the community feel. At North Lakes, for example, we are independently owned and one of our friendly team are always on hand to answer any questions or give advice.
With that in mind, book a visit to see our location or tour the selection of static caravans we have for sale. Your holiday home could be closer than you think!
