Step 2 - Understand the costs

There are three different costs to consider as a prospective holiday homeowner:

  • The cost of the holiday home itself

  • The annual site fees to cover the cost of your holiday home at your chosen park

  • The annual running costs for amenities in your holiday home

Fear not, as a Haven owner, there are many different ways to offset these costs and make holiday home ownership much more affordable than it may first seem.

The three costs to consider - explained

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.

We have a 24 hour on-park security team who regularly patrol the park to ensure our owners and guests feel safe.

They will also refuse entry to anyone without a valid pass. Plus, we offer a Park Security Alarm system to protect your holiday home and help put your mind at ease.

If you wish to contact our security team, you will be able to find their number on your park map which is included in your welcome pack when you check in or you can find an online version on our website.
