As with owning your own car or home, there are some associated running costs to pay for your holiday home. Details can be found below:
Pitch fees vary from park to park and are charged yearly. Specific pricing can be acquired by speaking to the sales team at your park of choice. The purchase price of your holiday home usually includes the pitch fees for the rest of the current year. Payment of pitch fees can be spread over 10 months through our Premium Credit Limited Payment Plan. There is a charge of 5% for this service.
Electricity is charged separately to pitch fees. The cost per year will vary depending on how much the holiday home is used. We re-sell electricity to owners at the price we pay for it. We do not charge for meter readings.
Non-domestic business rates are charged per holiday home and are billed separately to pitch fees. Since 2012 these have been subject to VAT.
Water and sewerage
Water and sewerage charges are charged separately to pitch fees. Since 2012, VAT has also been included in the cost.
Our parks also offer a number of services including winterisation, cleaning and servicing of your holiday home. These services can be booked through reception and are all charged services. Prices vary per service.
We currently offer finance through Black Horse Finance. We work closely with them to ensure that we are offering our customers the best finance deal for their holiday home. There are minimum deposit criteria in place for all holiday home purchases that use finance towards the funding of the purchase. This may vary depending on the value of the holiday home. All finance is offered subject to status. Terms and conditions apply.

All new holiday homes are covered by a 12-month manufacturer's warranty. The details of the warranty can vary between manufacturers, so please ask for further information.
