5 Irresistible Reasons To Buy A Static Caravan In Dorset

A beautiful location to own your own holiday home

When you buy a static caravan in Dorset, you’re not only getting a home from home in one of the most beautiful and historic counties in Britain, but you’re tapping into a relaxed, laid back lifestyle.

Think of sand between your toes, over 1800 hours of sunshine each year, great food, friendly people and hundreds of unique ways to make your time in Dorset memorable and fun for everyone.

  1. A surprisingly affordable and flexible option

Buying a static caravan is a significant proposition, but it has many benefits that can make it a far easier decision.

  • With prices from £19,995 and finance options to help you buy a static caravan in Dorset, you can stop worrying and get ready for the next exclusive owner’s party!
  • A home from home. Staying in a place that lets you have the comforts that are important to you as a family, and that will make your stay relaxed and enjoyable.
  • Holiday when it suits you. Have the flexibility to pop down for the weekend when the weather looks great, as well as your big family holiday.
  • And not forgetting the rising cost of foreign holidays for families (around £2000 self-catering for a family of four in Spain) that you wouldn’t have to worry about when you buy your static holiday home.
2. Your static caravan can help pay for itself

If you decide to buy a static caravan in Dorset, it will be a holiday home for you and your family for many years to come. What about the weeks when you don’t plan on enjoying the beautiful Dorset coast?

Renting out your holiday home could be a viable option to help cover the running costs and the cost of buying your static caravan.

Peak season is often in high demand in Dorset, while spring and early autumn could be the time to attract couples or families with more flexibility.

3. What does your Dorset holiday park offer to keep the family entertained?

Many parks have a huge range of facilities to keep your family on the go including:

  • Go swimming in the heated indoor or outdoor pools.
  • Show off your inner Murray on the tennis courts.
  • Throw a few hoops over on the basketball courts before lunch
  • Get beaten by the kids on the nine-hole crazy golf course
  • Jump on the onsite bus straight to the beach
  • Back in time for dinner and then relax and enjoy a couple of drinks in the owner’s lounge before collapsing into bed.

And that’s only day one…

4. Dorset has so much to see and do that you’ll never get bored

Whatever your interests or passions Dorset has you covered and your holiday home is the perfect base to explore what Dorset can offer.

Bournemouth in the east of the county has top-notch shopping for when you need some retail therapy, as well as some great restaurants and the Pavillion theatre – why not take in a show?

Or if you’re craving a touch of luxury, treat yourself to a spa day at Summer Lodge in Evershot followed by a sumptuous afternoon tea?

For the nature lover, Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour is home to the elusive Sika deer and rare red squirrels. No cars are allowed on the island so you’ll need to catch a ferry across and enjoy wandering around the mile long island.

If history is your passion, Dorset has it all, from Corfe Castle near Swanage to Sherborne Abbey to the north and Forde Abbey a Cistercian monastery near Chard.

Explore the Jurassic coast and follow in the footsteps of Mary Anning, fossil hunting at Lyme Regis and stop in historic Abbotsbury for coffee and cake as you head back to your holiday home.

5. Dorset specialises in the unusual…

Holidaying in your new static caravan in Dorset gives you a host of the usual activities to fill your days, but how about a few less ordinary activities to keep them interested?

Your kids will thank you, repeatedly, if you take them to Dorset Water parks near Corfe Castle. Essentially an outdoor, water-based bouncy castle complex split over two lakes.

Or for the budding water sports enthusiast, try paddle boarding or kayaking just a couple of miles down the road on Portland.

Dorset has so much to offer families that buying a static caravan in Dorset isn’t a difficult decision. The park could keep everyone happy for days on end, and combine that with excursions to enjoy everything Dorset has to offer and you’ll be excited to return year after year.

Christmas in your Static Caravan or Lodge Holiday home

Christmas is a perfect time to get away with all the family if you are lucky enough to own a static caravan or lodge holiday home. Despite the cold weather, you will find there are many holiday parks which are open at Christmas. If yours is one of them, you can spend an amazing, memorable Christmas in your own holiday home enjoying spectacular winter views of the countryside or coastline. And this may be the year we get a white Christmas – how Magical would that be?

Gifts

Perhaps the main event for children (and adults) is of course the presents! But it does beg the question how you can disguise the blessings from Santa Claus! If your holiday home isn’t too far away it may be worth a visit to take the presents beforehand and store them out of sight somewhere! Many Static caravans and Lodges have ample storage space, so you can use this for the presents. Failing this, you can of course keep them in the boot of the car with a thick blanket on top.

 

Keep Warm

Equip your caravan or lodge with higher tog duvets and extra blankets, even if you have central heating and double glazing. It’s always wise to be prepared for any eventuality in winter. Check with your park how they will be staffed beforehand and keep emergency contact numbers handy. In the unlikely event you experience boiler, gas or electric issues.  The last thing you want is to be cold or without electricity! Also, it is Winter! so take your woollies!

 

Christmas Decorations

Decorate your holiday home! Yes, it may not be as spacious as your everyday home, however you can buy smaller trees or Christmas trees that take up less space. It is Christmas after all! You can also purchase trees with lights already attached. Perfect.

Avoid candles, they are not safe in a caravan or lodge. However, we use the electric flicker candles and they are as good as the real thing. Add a wreath to your door, maybe some twinkly lights outside your holiday home and it can be as festive as your everyday home.

 

Christmas dinner

The Kitchens in your holiday home these days are as fabulous and equipped as your kitchen at home. You absolutely can cook a sumptuous feast like you can anywhere else. Some parks have social areas open and will cater for Christmas dinners and there are always restaurants and pubs nearby that offer Christmas meals. Make sure you book in advance as these are like hot seats! Very much sought after. However, if you prefer to spend Christmas indoors with your loved ones, then there are a few ways to help. Prepare and plan as much as possible in advance and take as much pre prepared items as you can.

 

Family Time.

This is what Christmas is all about, Family and good will. Take the time with your loved ones, enjoy your holiday home and use the amenities your park has to offer. There will be plenty of festive activities around at this special magical time whether its just for adults or the whole family to enjoy.

We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy New year from us all at Parklink.

Static Caravan Versus Touring Caravan

Static caravan versus touring caravan

When it comes to choosing a holiday home, most people find themselves deciding on a caravan or some kind.

The question is.. which one?

The main consideration that most will have to make is: static caravan versus touring caravan. Both a static caravan and a touring caravan have their own unique benefits.  Both will allow a person to create their own kind of holiday escape. Hopefully Parklink can help you decide which one is right for you?

Freedom and diversity

If you desire freedom along with the ability to travel to a variety of different locations, a touring caravan of course presents many more benefits.  You can research different locations, holiday parks and campsites. This means you are able to travel to a different part of the country every time that you want to go on holiday with family and friends. Those with a passion for exploring will relish the opportunity to hit the open road and take in different sights, making it ideally suited to those with a more adventurous nature. It even means that you can take your caravan abroad to places like France, which is renowned for its exceptional campsites. In this sense, a touring caravan provides much more scope than a static caravan, making for more varied holidays for those that choose one.

That said, Static Caravan owners can join online groups which allow you to exchange holiday weeks with one another at no charge.  This can be a great way to really get good use from your ‘static’ caravan.  Always remember to check with your park operator to see if this is permitted on your park.

Which one is the best value

 There are a number of cost implications that you need to consider for both options. Fuel costs can be something most people overlook when choosing a touring caravan. It is also worth considering the vehicle that you will need to manoeuvre the caravan. There are specific vehicles that are more effective when it comes to towing a static caravan. So if you’re serious about owning one, you may find that you need to invest a new car as well as the touring caravan.

Static caravans may have the added benefit of subletting opportunities. This means that you can make your holiday home into a form of additional income. This income can be used to help off set outgoings associated with running your static caravan. Static caravan and touring caravan ownership can pretty much balance out once you take everything into account.  This obviously depends on the type of holiday parks you choose and the type of static or touring caravan you opt for.  Static caravan ownership can start from as little as £10,000 for a pre owned model and there will be ongoing running costs to consider. In terms of affordability, a static caravan does offer an affordable holiday home.

Which option is least stressful!

Picture the scene.. it’s Friday afternoon, you’ve had a stressful week at work and you’re looking forward to jumping in your car and heading to the caravan with the family.

If you own a static caravan, this is much simpler. There’s no need to load up and attach the touring caravan to your car. Furthermore, you won’t need to spend time searching and booking a site. With a static you can simply pop down to your home from home whenever the mood takes you. Most people tend to leave clothing and food etc at their static caravans so it it ready for your arrival.

A touring caravan may seem like a carefree option in theory, but often it actually requires more planning ahead, making spontaneous trips more challenging.

Now that you’ve considered static caravan versus touring caravan, which one do you think is more suited to you and the type of holidays you want to enjoy? Whichever you’d prefer, you’ll find plenty of great ones for sale here.
