Reasons to own a holiday home

If you love escaping to our holiday parks here at Holgates, have you considered buying your very own holiday home so that you can enjoy that perfect family holiday all year-round, whenever you want?

We offer a range of ownership options at our parks, all of which are just a short drive away from the Lake District and make for a perfect home from home break for you and your family.

Here are just some of the reasons why owning a holiday home might be for you.

Home From Home

Probably the best thing about owning your own holiday home that it’s yours to enjoy whenever you want.

There’s no need to worry about any forward planning, you can simply pack up and head for a break whenever takes your fancy.

It also means that you can put your own stamp on your holiday home to truly make it feel like your own and enjoy all of the creature comforts that you would back at home.

Stress-Free Travel

Being able to escape to your UK holiday home also removes much of the usual stress that comes with a family holiday.

There’s no need to worry about long flights, baggage allowances, passports or shopping around to find the best deals of flights and accommodation. Alternatively, within just a few hours you can be at your holiday home, ready to relax.

Quality Family Time

Sometimes, you simply need to get away from the pressures of modern life, which is made so much easier by owning your own holiday home.

Whether it’s been a tough week at work, or you simply just haven’t spent that much time together recently, your holiday home is the perfect space to relax and unwind in and spend some quality time together as a family (or even with friends, or just as a couple!).


Owning your own holiday home is often a lot more affordable than you might think and can actually work out cheaper than taking a longer holiday abroad each year.

We have a range of static caravans and lodges available at our parks here at Holgates available for all budgets, starting at as little as £30,000 for a pre-owned caravan or £40,000 for a new one.

Once you take into account all of the costs of holidaying abroad, over the years, owning a holiday home can actually see you make some great savings.

Four-Legged Friends

One of the hardest parts about going on holiday can be leaving your pets behind while the rest of the family get to enjoy themselves.

Thankfully, with a holiday home, you can bring your four-legged friends with you, so you don’t have to feel guilty as you drop them off at the kennels!

Community Spirit

Another great thing about having your own place to stay is the sense of community that it brings with it.

Although it’s the perfect opportunity to have some time to yourself, holiday parks also have a great community spirit and offer a chance to make new friends with your neighbours.

You can also take part in various activities around the park and your little ones with have new friends to play with too!
