Five reasons to buy a static caravan in Blackpool
British seaside spots don’t come much more famous than Blackpool. A bustling place full of bright lights and awesome attractions, the Lancashire town is immensely popular with visitors from far and wide.
The guaranteed great time of holidaymakers has also made the town and the entire Lancashire coast a hub of holiday homeowners looking to return as and when they please, with caravans for sale at the centre of the action.
Before we take you through the reasons why you should consider buying a static caravan in Blackpool, let’s hear from some of our Blackpool owners:
Cynthia and Barbara say: ''We love our holiday home lifestyle. It means that at the drop of a cap we can escape to our Haven home, leaving all our worries and stresses behind.''
1. You’ll be close to the heart of the action
We’ve got two immense Blackpool holiday parks that are home to owners. Marton Mere Holiday Park is in the perfect place for the best of both sides of Blackpool.
On the one hand, you’re within walking distance or a short drive of the seafront and everything iconic about the Lancashire centre. On the other, you’re neighbours with a nature reserve and comfortably within an area that’s a real escape from the hustle and bustle.
To the north of the town, you’ll find Cala Gran Holiday Park, nestled just below the Irish Sea town of Fleetwood.
2. You’ll have all the home comforts needed nearby
Blackpool boasts brilliant transport connections that help you get to your van easily and allow you to navigate the area stress-free. Blackpool North Station is a fantastic gateway for Marton Mere Holiday Park, and a ride on the tram takes you up to Fleetwood, with Broadwater the closest stop to the home of Cala Gran Holiday Park.
There are a range of other comforts that make this a more than convenient place to become a Haven owner. You won’t be without any amenities that are a given when you’re at home.
Here’s what to expect:

3. You’ll join a tight-knit community
Blackpool rightly takes the plaudits as a wonderful place for a weekend away buthaving a place you can return to as and when you please brings the Blackpool experience to another level. There are so many community-based events to get involved with, on and off our parks.
There are owners’ parties throughout the year, outings to enjoy and exclusive on-park facilities like Marton Mere’s owners’ lounge to relax and unwind with friends.
Off park, why not head to see some football at Blackpool FC? The team have been a consistent feature of England’s top leagues over the past few years, even reaching the Premier League on a couple of occasions.
Community, clubs and the coast combine to make Blackpool a brilliant place to buy a caravan.
4. You’ll be a stone’s throw from the Lancashire coast
Blackpool and the surrounding area are about more than bright lights and bustling entertainment. It’s home to some of the west coast’s best beaches, with everything from the sand surrounding Blackpool pier all the way up to Fleetwood ripe for a great time with the loved ones.
Whether the sun is shining at the height of summer, or the wind whistling in the spring or autumn, you’ll be a matter of minutes from some incredible coastal walks with a whole host of stellar stopping points along the way. Experiences like these really are what holiday home ownership is all about.

Both letting income and site fees are subject to yearly pricing reviews and the monthly site fee costs and letting income shown in the example are based on 2024 figures.
Modelled assumptions on expected annual site fee and letting income charges over the 7-year lettable life of the Atlas Chorus 3 Bed indicate that under Let2offset it is anticipated that these customers will continue to receive a monthly credit during this period, however, this is not guaranteed. The modelled assumptions are based on the historical performance of Haven over the past 5 years of trading.
