Five reasons to buy a static caravan in Northumberland

  • Share on Facebook

Northumberland is the definition of less equals more. As England’s most sparsely populated county, it lets the scenery do the talking, and the talking is simply idyllic. This place is the real deal when it comes to an escape from the hustle and bustle. 

Untouched paradises stand in stark contrast to Northumberland’s turbulent past and strategic significance as the gateway to England from Scotland, and vice versa. The remnants of this era are on display throughout the region, best represented by Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Let’s take you through the reasons to buy a static caravan in Northumberland.

Amanda Wood, an owner at Haggerston Castle, sums up what's great about their holiday home: ''Haggerston Castle is a great site. The staff, owner facilities and discounts, location, and accessibility for our disabled son are all brilliant.''

1. The perfect place at our parks

1. The perfect place at our parks

There are two great Haven locations to set up a second home in Northumberland. Haggerston Castle Holiday Park boasts the remnants of its namesake on park and sits in the sort of countryside that makes Northumberland such a sought-after location. To the north, Berwick Holiday Park is just outside the town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, England’s northernmost major settlement and a stone’s throw from the Scottish border. 

2. Nothing too far away

As England’s most rural county, Northumberland has scenic sites in abundance, but this doesn’t mean there’s any let up on the necessities needed for an easy escape from the hustle and bustle.

Hadrian's Wall: a reminder of a turbulent past

Northumberland’s strategically important place in history reveals itself all over the county. There are countless castles, fortifications and landmarks led by Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

These can be appreciated all-year round and are perfect visiting spots when you decide to host friends and family at your caravan. Walk along the River Tweed to follow the modern England-Scotland border, with so much to see and discover along the way.

Holy Island: on the mysterious Lindisfarne

There’s always something to be discovered in Northumberland, which makes it a prime place to own a caravan of your own. Huge, undeveloped and not talked about too much, the county really is full of hidden gems that will reveal themselves to you when you return to the region as and when you please. 

Sites like the mysterious Holy Island of Lindisfarne, the route to which reveals itself at low tide, makes for a great day out off park. The sanctuary that is the Farne Islands is another place off the beaten track, accessible by boat from Seahouses and proof that it isn’t just mainland Northumberland that’s full of delights.

5. There's always something on

Places like Maltings Berwick are proof that Northumberland is more than just a temporary holiday destination. 

The cinema and theatre hosts productions throughout the year, and with a bowls club and tennis club joining the activities available in England’s northernmost town, you’ll never be short of things to do regardless of the time of year. 

Important information

Let2offset - make no site fee payments until 2031

Let2offset is a contractual lettings product that offers eligible owners a guaranteed letting income at a preferential rate (calculated each year) in exchange for a stipulated number of letting breaks. It also allows eligible owners to pay their site fees and receive their letting income in 12 equal monthly instalments; the monthly site fee amount charged by Haven will be after deduction of the letting income.

‘Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031’ is available at 33 Haven parks excluding Burnham, Cardigan View, Far Grange, Garreg Wen, Lydstep Beach, Riviere Sands and Seaview.  The letting income received will vary by make, model and location. The monthly site fee payment does not include running costs e.g. utilities, rates & insurance.

“Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” is applicable to new and existing customer purchases of new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed or equivalent or superior grade holiday home purchases made through Haven where customers have also signed up to Haven’s Let2offset contract. It is not applicable to private sales and cannot be used in conjunction with our free Site Fee promotion.  It is available across 40% of eligible Parks and applies when letting a new Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home (or equivalent or superior grade for 15 weeks.

An example of how “Make no site fee payments when using Let2offset until 2031” operates under Let2offset is the purchase of an Atlas Sahara 3 Bed holiday home at Primrose Valley with a monthly site fee of £585.00 (includes purchasing discount of £45) and monthly letting income of £803.67. The monthly difference equates to £218.67, which will be credited to the owner's account. 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 Sahara 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.
