Reasons to discover a seasonal touring pitch


If you’re a touring caravan or motorhome owner, one of the things you’ve probably heard of in passing is the concept of having a seasonal touring pitch. For those uninitiated, seasonal touring pitches are an area of land on a holiday park which acts as a reserved space, so that you can leave your caravan there for the duration of the length of time you have paid for, attending whenever you like. Seasonal touring pitches will differ depending on things such as price, length of reservation and the site’s seasonal opening times, but it’s definitely worth considering if you’re wanting to go on several holidays a year in your caravan. Listed below are several reasons to discover and book a seasonal touring pitch – if you like what you read, then you should consider seasonal touring caravan pitches at Holgates newest site at Marsh House.

Seasonal touring pitches are cost-effective

Renting a seasonal touring pitch is generally cheaper than if you were to book a plot separately for your caravan each time you want to go on holiday. This will, of course, depend on how many holidays you want to have per season, but if you would like to go away several times a year then the price will be considerably cheaper this way, allowing you to spend more money on other things while on your holiday.

It’s also cheaper than hiring a static caravan on-site multiple times if that’s an option you’re considering. Many private touring and motorhome owners will compare the cost of a seasonal pitch to owning a static caravan that also attracts seasonal site fees which also works out cheaper to rent a seasonal pitch with your own holiday home this way. Having your own holiday home gives you the access to enjoy the park and with the added freedom to take your caravan off park to enjoy perhaps a break abroad still too!

Seasonal touring caravan pitches are less hassle overall

Going on holiday in your own caravan is an exciting idea, however, the realities of doing so can be quite time-consuming. Not only do you have to hitch your caravan to your car and tow it all the way to the site, but you also have the hassle of storing your caravan at home or in private storage when you aren’t away. Having your own seasonal touring caravan pitch means that you don’t have to vacate the site by a set time and you can arrive whenever you like and with the added bonus of leaving your awning up and belongings all in place as you left them. The drive time taken to get to the site will also be naturally quicker, as you don’t have to drive as slow as you normally would with a caravan in tow. You also don’t need to worry about getting a holiday/pitch booked, as you will already have your pitch set up meaning you can attend on a last-minute basis.

Get to know your site and neighbours better

One of the fun things about having a holiday on a caravan site is that these sites usually provide amenities and other things to do, providing fun for all the family. Many people choose to go to the same site each year, so if you wanted to visit the same caravan site each year, then you may get to know your neighbours, making long term friends along the way. Reserving a seasonal touring pitch is a great idea if you plan on visiting a site like Marsh House on a repeat basis, allowing you to spend more time with the friends you’ve made on site, as well as using the amenities you’ve come to know and love. It can be stressful visiting a new location when you don’t know anyone or know anything about the area, so having a reserved pitch for your caravan will eliminate such worries.


Visit whenever you like with seasonal touring pitches

As previously stated, it can be stressful when booking a holiday, especially if you are booking it close to the date that you want the holiday itself to take place. With a seasonal touring caravan pitch, you don’t need to worry about this – you can decide to attend the site whenever you like, even if it is last minute. Make the most of the changing weather and hop in the car when the sun is shinning. If you find you have a spare weekend free or just fancy getting away for a bit, you can simply drive up to the site without having to book anything in advance.

As the reasons above show, having a seasonal touring pitch for your caravan is a fantastic idea, particularly if you own your own caravan and like to have multiple holidays in it each year. If you’re not sure where to reserve your pitch, why not consider Marsh House near Carnforth? Our brand new seasonal touring pitches are all fully serviced and up to date with all the amenities you might need, allowing you to relax in style. Book a viewing now to find out more.
