5 stress free steps to becoming a holiday home owner

Steps to ownership

Follow our five-steps to holiday home ownership for a stress free route to making the choice that is right for you, your family and your future life as a holiday home owner.

Step 1: Find the right holiday village

Choosing the right destination is key to a happy holiday lifestyle. Consider your travel times if you plan to visit for regular short breaks, and decide whether you want coast, countryside or a mixture of the two.

Are you looking for absolute peace and quiet, or somewhere with a bit of nightlife? Cutting costs by choosing a park with no facilities is not a great idea if your holiday lifestyle turns dreary and dull after a few nights.

Sand le Mere is best for: Coast and countryside, Activities on your doorstep, Family-friendly nightlife.

Step 2: Consider the costs

A static caravan will cost anything from £14,995 to £89,995+ and we can arrange finance packages to help you spread the cost (subject to status). Our luxury lodges start from £89,995.

As with any home there are running costs to cover your use of energy and amenities, for insurance and for care of our public areas. Site fees include local authority rates and water charges, however gas and electric is charged separately. You will also need to take out insurance to cover any unforeseen issues with your holiday home.

One way to offset some of these costs is to sublet your holiday home to holidaymakers – ask us for more details.

Step 3: Choose a holiday home

Finding the right holiday home involves more than simply picking a style that you like. At Sand le Mere, we’ve got a range of static caravans and holiday lodges for sale in Yorkshire, so there’s something for all tastes and budgets. Make sure that you consider how you’ll be using the home:

If you have lots of grandchildren, will two bedrooms be enough or will an extra bedroom help
If you have young children, are light coloured sofas such a good idea?
We have many different caravan choices at Sand le Mere, so visiting to see them for yourself is a really good must.

Step 4: Find the right location

When you’ve picked your holiday village and static caravan, the next step is to find a pitch that will suit your needs most closely.
Ask yourself these questions: Do I want to be near to the beach, lake or woodlands, or close to the pool and entertainments? Do I want a quiet pitch or a short walk to the leisure complex? Do I need wheelchair access? Would I prefer piped gas or a bottle?
