UK Holiday Home Ownership isn’t as expensive as you think…


Have you ever considered UK Holiday Home ownership but been put off by the initial cost of purchasing your very own home away from home? Well it may not actually work out as expensive as you might think over the long run.

Did you know that you could stand to pay as little as 50p per hour for the privilege of having your very own dream holiday home? This compares to a potential cost of £5.43 per hour when taking a two week cruise!

This is calculated based on a family of four spending weekends at their holiday home throughout a holiday parks open season, two weeks at Christmas and the children, plus one adult, spending six weeks during the summer on park. We’ve worked this out over a ten year period, as this is the typical manufacturer warranty issued to anyone who decides to buy a holiday home at one of our luxury locations (in this case, the 5 star Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park).

Willing to invest a bit further and purchase a lodge rather than static caravan? This won’t push your hourly cost up too much more, with the cost per hour of owning a lodge at our stunning 5* Hawkchurch Resort & Spa, in Devon, only going up to a potential £1.12 per hour.

Take a look at our fact packed infographic to gain an understanding as to why we think it makes financial sense in the long run to buy your very own holiday home with Darwin Escapes…
