Frequently Asked Questions

How long can I stay on park for?

All our parks have holiday park licences, therefore they cannot be used to live on (Residential), but you can mainly come and go as and when you like during the 10 - 11 months (depending on the park) we are open. Our parks are subject to a 56 day maximum length of stay, with at least 7 days where you will need to be off park prior to returning. Typically, our parks are closed early January to early February.

I am interested in finding more out about owning a holiday home and wanted to drop by one of the parks sometime?

Sure thing! You can either fill out this form or call our office on 0800 214080 to arrange a visit. We are currently only accepting visits by appointment only, in order to manage numbers and help us keep you safe whilst social distancing. We kindly ask that as per Government guidelines you ensure that face coverings are worn whilst in our ownership offices and on your park tour. You can find out more details on all our ownership locations and available holiday homes on our About Ownership page.

Can my family and friends come and visit?

We find that more and more purchasers now are not just only thinking of how the holiday park could work for them but also for their children, grandkids and friends. You will receive Ownership passes that can be allocated to these so they can either come and visit you when you are at your holiday home or use it when you are busy and cannot make it down.

Can we make an appointment to speak to an ownership advisor?

Absolutely, please visit our enquiry page or call 0800 214080
