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.

Holiday Homes For Sale Cornwall

A prime holiday home destination

There is no denying the natural beauty of the south west coast. Cornwall sets the bar for UK holiday destinations due to its long stretches of sand to the awe-inspiring scenery.

The Med or Cornwall

When people are looking for holiday homes for sale, Cornwall, they realise very quickly that they don’t have to fly around the world seeking adventures as they have their own oasis to discover right here in the south west country. If it isn’t enough that the coastline is jaw dropping and like something out of the Mediterranean.  Parklink would love to help you find you very own holiday home in Cornwall as we know of some truly beautiful areas for you to visit whilst you are here enjoying the good life!

Stunning Beaches

Let’s start with the beaches, as we said, the coastline is stunning, it’s the UK’s “French Riviera” with stunning beaches, beautiful climate over the summer months and plenty of sandy beaches stretched to accommodate the summer holiday makers. We strongly recommend “Sennen Bay” in Whitesand Bay which is a short walk over the cliffs from Land’s End. It is a charming fishing cove with a long sandy beach which is great for swimming and surfing. You can hire surf boards here to have a go at the sport that many people flock to Cornwall for!

Laid back Cornwall

There is nowhere quite like this to be and here at Parklink we are optimistic that you will find your own idyllic holiday home for sale, Cornwall.  As a holiday home owner here you are free to come and experience the laid back way of life Cornish people have become accustomed to.  You will find you will have no choice but to chill out and enjoy the delights of this great region.

Coastal beauty

Another Charmer and somewhat more North of the area is Godrevy Beach which is a three mile sandy beach that stretches from Hayle to Godrevy Head. Godrevy tales the brunt of the Atlantic swell and is the probably the most exposed beach in the area and on a windy day the surf is spectacular to watch! There is a beautiful lighthouse at this beach (it was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf’s famous book “the Lighthouse” and there is an excellent café to be found right on the beach. Kynance cove is just wow! White sand, brilliant turquoise water, islands, caves and stunning serpentine rock formations all serve to make this one of the prettiest places Cornwall has to offer.

A Holiday Home owners favourite

Unsure where to start when looking for a holiday home for sale Cornwall? Well take a look at Harlyn Bay.  Harlyn Bay is simply stunning and is well placed on the north of Cornwall near Rick Steins favourite seaside destination, Padstow. It has a spacious sandy beach which makes it popular with families, however the sand gets almost totally covered at high tide so its good to be cautious. However in the summer months the beach is patrolled by lifeguards making swimming as safe as can be. There is a large car park and basic toilets, but no cafe here so a packed lunch it is! If Harlyn takes your fancy you are sure to find a holiday home in this area of Cornwall.

Explore inland

Let’s move on to other less coastal delights that Cornwall has to offer. There is plenty of exploring to do inland as Cornwall is steeped in history. A day excursion we repeatedly hear about is the fun day trip where you are armed with a map and compass and you hike your way around around Penwith, with the aim of finding the group of lonely prehistoric remains called the “Men-an-tol-rock” (the Devils Eye).

Another explorers gem

Out on the Barren Hills above Roche Village lies the remains of a tiny chapel and as legend has it was the home of a hermit! The chapel dates back centuries and it makes quite an interesting sight! There are superb views here too so you will be in for a real treat.

Beautiful Cornwall

If you are a fan of the beauty of waterfalls, then we highly recommend seeking out St. Nectan’s Glen. This waterfall is 18 metres tall and cascades down into a natural plunge pool that you can take a dip in. This leafy area is associated with King Arthur and pixies! So it is so much more than a place to swim.

Cornish Pasties

We could talk all day about the beauty of Cornwall, the history and well, everything really! However We think we will finish our blog about the most famous export of Cornwall, the most delicious and tasty. The Cornish Pasty! The Cornish are very protective over their Cornish pasties! It is a local treasure and they are very proud of this creation. It must adhere to certain criteria IE; the method in which it is made, the ingredients and exactly how it is crimped. Arguably even where it is made! While you are in Cornwall you simply must try a Cornish pasty. Delicious!
We hope we have given you some gems to try.

Authentic Cornwall

We love Cornwall and think its one of the most authentic places you can have your own holiday home. Unless you have been there is no way to understand the beauty and how it is like stepping into another country.
Dha Weles! (Goodbye in Cornish)
