A Guide to Buying Your First Holiday Home

Buying your first holiday home is very exciting – however with so much to consider, it can also feel daunting at times! We’re here simplify the process for you. Below we’ve created a guide of all the things you should look into when buying a caravan holiday home.

Choosing a New vs Pre-Owned Holiday Home

Deciding whether you should opt for a new or a pre-owned holiday home is a tricky decision. Your budget should be a key factor here, and you should consider your minimum requirements for your family. At Hawthorns park, we only sell high quality static caravans from quality manufacturers.

Wear and tear

If you have younger children and/or dogs, you might feel more comfortable in a pre-owned holiday home, where accidental spillages, wear and tear is less problematic.

If your budget is tighter, opting for a pre-owned model will help reduce the upfront cost.

State of the art appliances

New caravans benefit from state of the art appliances. If you’re into your gadgets a new static caravan may be the ideal choice for you.

Finding the best place to buy a holiday home in the UK

Choosing the perfect location is an important consideration when buying any home – but when it’s your holiday home, this becomes even more important!

You should ensure that the surrounding area is perfectly geared to your family. If you have younger children, make sure that there is enough to see and do to keep your littles ones entertained, as well as activities that’ll be better suited to them in a few years when they get older!

We might be a little biased, but we think that Lancashire is the best place to buy a holiday home in the UK. Hawthorns Caravan Park is situated on the edge of the Lake District, Cumbria, Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales and a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts, walkers, mountain bikers, adventurers, or anyone simply looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. With the Lake District just 20-minutes away, and the Yorkshire Dales and the Trough of Bowland just 30-minutes away, we’re perfectly situated to enjoy the famous local area.

Choosing the perfect park

The park you base yourselves from should have everything your family needs, and be attractive enough for you to want to return on a regular basis.

Hawthorns Park is the ultimate destination for a relaxing holiday in the UK. Nature enthusiasts will simply fall in love with the woodland walks on our doorstep. Sit back and relax in the woodland glade of by the wildlife pond, surrounded by bluebells, primroses and cowslips.
