Are Static Caravans a Sound Investment?

Are Static Caravans a Sound Investment?

The popularity of static caravans in Wales, England and Scotland is booming with more people than ever before choosing to invest in their dream holiday home. The days of holiday parks being grotty, rundown holes with only the most basic of facilities are long gone; replaced now by beautifully designed grounds featuring all the mod cons of 21st century life.

Choosing to buy a static caravan means all the planning, budgeting and hassle out of arranging a holiday is completely erased. You can simply get up and go whenever you want without the need to plan ahead, pack or even deal with towing like you would with a regular touring caravan.

Why More People Are Choosing to Holiday at Home

Brits are now choosing to holiday at home in record numbers, with analysis of holiday searches and bookings between October and the January peak period showing interest in UK staycations for summer 2017 rising by almost a quarter over the same period last year. The weakening pound against the euro means a holiday in Europe will cost a family of four at least another £245 while further uncertainty over Brexit and safety fears abroad has also changed the behaviour of holidaymakers.

North Wales itself has also seen surge in popularity in what has been described as a “golden age” of tourism with more than £2.8 billion a year contributed to the economy. The region was even named at number four in Lonely Planet’s 2017 list of the Top 10 Regions to Visit the World thanks to the breathtaking natural landscape and unique attractions such as the world’s fastest zip line and giant trampoline quarry. The upcoming Snowdonia Outdoor Festival this August is also set to attract around 10,000 people to the region and our holiday parks in Criccieth give you the perfect base the get the most out of the event.

Static Caravans in North Wales

An Affordable Investment

As for pricing, we have such a wide range of static caravans for sale that there’s something to suit virtually any budget with a wide range of attractive finance options available if you can’t afford the initial outlay. The 2013 Taliesin Lodge, for example, is a true top of the range model that can sleep up to eight people and includes everything from an en-suite bathroom to a private hot tub. If you can’t afford to splash out on of our premium range static caravans, we also have some fantastic value budget options such as the 2003 Willerby Salisbury available for only £11k! This smart little model is an ideal starter holiday home and is ready to be sited on one of our rare Tyddyn Cethin plots.

Another major benefit of owning your own holiday lodge or static caravan in North Wales is that you can make money all year round by subletting it when you aren’t using it yourself. This is a fantastic way to earn some money throughout the year and the better your caravan, the more you can charge in rent which is something to keep in mind when making a purchase. If you’re unsure about any of the aspects involved in subletting, our friendly sales team will be more than happy to advise you on how to get the maximum return on your investment.

Our holiday parks are based in some of the most sought after locations in North Wales surrounded by stunning scenery and breathtaking sea views. Our most popular holiday park, Triangle Wood in Prestatyn, is perfectly placed amongst the rolling Welsh hilltops within easy walking distance of the beach and local amenities. We also have another two parks in Criccieth including the brand new Tyddyn Morthwyl development featuring 30 spacious new plots complete with luxurious block paved drives and landscaping.

There has never been a better time to become an owner, with our brand new developments, affordable statics and the thriving tourist industry of North Wales.
