Site Fees & Running Costs

Our static caravan site fees cover all park maintenance, landscaping, security and use of park facilities. We're always really up-front about all ongoing running costs right from the start, that way you'll know exactly where you stand before you sign on the dotted line.

Site fees

Site fees vary by park and pitch location and are subject to pitch availability and suitability for your chosen caravan. They're payable before the start of every season at the beginning of March and if you join us half way through a season, we'll pro-rata the amount of site fees payable to us. We're fair and always do the right thing by our amazing Owners - such as crediting their site fees during the recent lockdown period when they were unable to use their holiday homes.

What's included in site fees?
  • The right to site your holiday home on our park
  • Exclusive owner's parties and full events calendar
  • 15% off in our bars, restaurants and shops
  • 50% off sports and leisure activities
  • General park maintenance and security
