Your first four steps towards owning a holiday home
If you decide you want to join us and our owners' community, you'll have a choice of pitch locations around our park to suit you.
Whether you prefer a quieter life or a bit of buzz, we've got something for everyone.
We have something to suit every taste and budget. The deposit is 10% of the holiday home value and you'll need to factor in your site fees too.
We can help you decide what is the best for you and can even help with finance.
If you like what you see and want to start your dream lifestyle, pay a deposit to secure your place in our park family.
As soon as the holiday home becomes available, we will be in touch with that important date to collect your keys.
Before you buy a caravan at Haven, you can book a free park visit so you can get a feel for what life as an owner might be like.
Of course there's no obligation to buy anything at all, but if you do decide to go for it, we'll give you a 30-day money-back guarantee with any model.

We have 38 parks across the UK so you're bound to find a location that suits you. Our different parks and locations offer a variety of choice; from beautiful coastlands, to wonderful woodlands. And if you need a hand deciding, we have digital brochures available and you can always get in touch to ask us anything about any of our parks.
Understand the costs
Owning a holiday home involves three main costs to consider - the cost of the holiday home itself, annual site fees for your chosen pitch and park plus annual running costs such as electricity, water, insurance and rates.
Choose a holiday home
When it comes to finding your perfect holiday home, the choice can be bewildering (especially if it's your first time!). As experts in matching owners to their right home-from-home, we're put together a selection of this season's best models, carefully chosen to suit a wide of needs, tastes and budges. Perhaps you need a super comfortable bed for a good night's sleep, plus extra storage for the kids' toys? Or maybe an extra bathroom or toilet, so there are no queues when the whole family are visiting? Whether you're looking for comfort, luxury, indulgence or something a bit different, you'll find it in our handpicked range.

Buying a holiday home is really a lifestyle choice. By letting with us, you can help to offset the cost of ownership.
However, because resale values will reduce over time, buying a holiday home should not be seen as an investment for the purposes of yielding an income.
