So you’ve decided that you want to buy a static caravan in the UK? The Darwin Escapes team is made up of staff with masses of holiday home industry experience, and as such we feel we are best place to help guide you on the right path to ensure you get the holiday home of your dream.
We guide you through the process of things you need to look out for as well as highlighting the costs you can anticipate when you are purchasing your static caravan.
Firstly, you need to decide which location is right for you. Darwin Escapes currently has eight holiday resorts in its portfolio, six of which offer static caravan ownership options.
You can start the process by requesting an ownership brochure which will provide you with an overview of all of our holiday home ownership destinations across the UK. This will highlight the facilities which are on offer at each respective resort as well as the attractions which are on offer in the area around these resorts. We know that there is no one size fits all when it comes to holiday destinations, which is why we have worked hard to accommodate as wide a variety of customers as possible.
Once you have narrowed down your list of potential resorts, then we’d recommend booking a park visit so that you can take a look for yourself and make completely certain that this is the resort for you before you go any further.
The next step we’d recommend is to that you use our holiday home sales page and use the filters to narrow down the list of potential options by the park or region you are interested in.
Once you have found a static caravan that you want to find more information about, you can request specific details about the individual caravan and book a park tour on the Darwin Escapes website.
If you are unsure about which caravan you would like to buy, but really like a specific resort, you can request a brochure for that specific location. Alternatively, book a visit to be shown a range of static caravans at that resort, or use the live chat pop up on the right hand side of our website to ask any questions you might have to our expert customer care team.
When buying a static caravan, you should consider at what times you are likely to use it and who with. Your requirements will be different if you are looking for a summer holiday home for the family, compared to someone who is purchasing a static caravan as a peaceful retreat throughout most of the year.
You should also bear in mind the location, your budget and the running costs associated with owning a static caravan such as the site fees. Site fees will vary depending on the location, so please feel free to ask a member of our team for the cost of site fees before proceeding any further with your enquiry. These will cover the cost of facilities, entertainment, maintenance and much more so you don’t have to worry about a thing during your time on park.
If you wish to try before you buy, many people become owners after they have been on holiday to one of our ownership holiday parks. Whilst this is possible on a number of our resorts, such as Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park; other locations such as Aberconwy Resort & Spa are exclusive owner-only parks. You can still arrange visits to these resorts though and sample the wonderful facilities which are available. In the case of Aberconwy, this will include the Michelin recommended Signatures Restaurant.
You can buy a static caravan from Darwin Escapes at prices ranging from around £12,500 upwards towards £100,000. The price you pay depends on the age of the holiday home, its condition, facilities available, size and of course its location; much the same as a traditional bricks and mortar home.
When you have found your perfect holiday home, you can pay all in one go, or consider our financing options. We are able to introduce you to specialist lenders who finance the purchase of static caravans, to spread the cost of the caravan over a period of time. Please ask a member of our team for more information on this as it will be tailored specifically to your requirements.
In some instances, you may be able to part exchange a touring caravan in exchange for a discount off the price of your purchase. Please ask your sales representative if you are considering this as an option to help fund your investment.
When you have an idea of where you would like to buy a static caravan and what type of caravan will suit your needs, you would then book a park tour and consider if the caravan is best suited to your requirements.
The Darwin Escapes brand is a sign of quality, so you can be rest assured of the best possible service if you are considering holiday home ownership at one of our resorts all the way through from your initial purchase into the post sales support as you enjoy your dream home away from home.
We’ll look after you all the way to ensure that your path to buying a static caravan is as stress free as possible. We have eight holiday parks in our portfolio of nineteen resorts where holiday home ownership is a possibility. You can buy static caravans at six of these holiday parks, which are:
