Owning your very own luxury lodge or static caravan is a truly exciting prospect. It is your opportunity to holiday in your favourite place with all your loved ones, whenever you please.
Hoburne wants to make sure you find the holiday home that not only matches your lifestyle, but your budget. Understandably, there are running costs involved with owning a holiday home.
We fully support our owners from advice for insurance to “winterisation” packages, ensuring your home is protected in the quieter months and stays in tip top condition for you to enjoy time and time again.
Your pitch fee is the charge agreed for keeping your holiday home on a site. At Hoburne, your pitch fee includes access to all of our exclusive owners’ perks, as well as the right to pitch your holiday on our park for the agreed time.
The pitch fee may vary, depending on the location of the park and the location of your pitch within the park, however, the purchase price usually includes the pitch fees for the rest of the year.
Holiday home owners must be covered by a suitable, comprehensive insurance policy so that even when you are away from the park, you have the reassurance that your holiday home and your belongings are being taken care of professionally.
We recommend Leisuredays due to our good relationship with them and their specialist knowledge of static caravan, holiday lodge and chalet insurance. As well as this, cover with Leisuredays Insurance means that in the unlikely event you need to make a claim, we are able to help in getting it resolved quickly.
You are welcome to choose a policy with another supplier, but you must confirm this with your advisor to ensure that the policy covers the park requirements.
Subletting is a great source of income when you’re not using your holiday home. The only thing we require from you is an annual gas test which Hoburne can take care of.
After 3 years of ownership, owners need to have a PAT test and a valid electric certificate, which again, we can sort out, so one less thing to worry about.
As winter draws in, we suggest preparing your holiday home accordingly. Freezing temperatures and damp can be an issue for unprepared caravans and holiday homes
Hoburne prepares your home by removing water from the valves, boiler, pipes and central heating to protect against freeze. In the Spring, we reconnect your water, so everything is ready and working for your enjoyment. This process can sometimes be a necessary requirement from an insurance perspective and ensures that you’ll have peace of mind for the next year.
Occasional maintenance on your home will be inevitable, such as issues with the electrics or showers. Hoburne’s maintenance team should be your first port of call, which can be sorted quickly. Our on-site team also know the homes inside and out – making issues easy to diagnose and repair.
Much like running your own home, there are costs for sewage and waste drainage, as well as ground maintenance and land management to ensure the area surrounding your holiday home is kept in pristine condition and is a joy to come to each time you holiday there.
Electricity & Gas is supplied on site. Electricity is supplied to our parks via a meter, which we then pass on to home owners at the same price. For gas, the majority of homes purchase bottled gas, however some pitches have access to piped gas. Our park owner enquiries team can provide you with more precise costs.
A Hoburne holiday home gives you the freedom to just get away. A home-from-home in a stunning location… a lifetime of holidays with no reservations.
