When it comes to holiday homes, you have two choices: Book a holiday rental, or buy a holiday home!

Both certainly have their benefits; with a holiday rental, you can visit any number of places across the country (even the world) and enjoy something new each time.

On the other hand, buying a holiday home is a great option for person or family that loves self-catering, enjoys the comforts of home and wants to make one place their holiday home from home.

We may be biased of course here at Akebar Park, but we (and the current holiday homeowners here) think that owning your own holiday home wins out, every time!

Read on to find out why…

Here are 5 reasons buying a holiday home wins over booking a holiday rental:

1. It’s more cost effective, and a good investment

Shelling out to rent a holiday cottage or caravan each time can be very expensive, especially since prices soared during lockdown. The demand for holiday rentals in the UK continues to keep prices up.

Foreign travel remains tricky, with long queues at the airport and cancelled flights. Many people are therefore still choosing to holiday in the UK rather than go through all the hassle.

Buying your own caravan or lodge is a cost-effective alternative, especially compared to a couple of expensive family holidays abroad every year. There’s no costly airport parking or flights.

Static caravans are an affordable option, given how long you will own it and use it for. Prices at Akebar Park start from as little as £34,995.

We offer 60-month finance plans and our luxurious holiday homes offer great value for money.

2. Visit whenever you like

One of the great advantages of owning your own holiday home is that you can use it whenever you want.

For example, it’s up to you how often you come to Akebar Park, in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire, with its own golf course and on-site pub and restaurant.

Your static caravan or lodge could be somewhere you visit in the school holidays, at weekends and Bank Holidays – or for longer periods of time. You won’t have to ask if the property is vacant or complete a booking form.

Some people even use their caravans and lodges as a luxury alternative to working from home.

3. Invite friends to stay

It’s not just you and your immediate family who can use your holiday home at Akebar Park. Why not invite friends to stay when you are not here?

Depending on the size of your caravan or lodge, you can invite other people to come on holiday with you. Or share the benefits of owning a holiday home by inviting others to use it too.

Akebar Park is located on the edge of Yorkshire Dales surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK – with breath-taking beauty spots and numerous attractions.

4. You can make it a genuine home away from home

A huge benefit of owning your own holiday home is that you can decorate and furnish it to your own taste. Every one of our static caravans and lodges is unique and can be decorated in your style.

Once your holiday home is decorated, it’s up to you how what extras you’ll install to make it your perfect home from home.

Because it is your own luxury retreat, you can leave key items, such as clothes, tableware and cutlery, to minimise the need for packing whenever you come.

5. Get to know the area

Owning your own secure holiday home at Akebar Park, for example, means you can get really familiar with the local area in North Yorkshire. You will discover special places you’ll want to return to again and again.

There are lots of fantastic things to see, do and experience within easy reach. Some of our favourites are Bolton Castle, Lightwater Valley and White Scar Cave.

We’re also lucky to have some incredible places to eat and drink in the Yorkshire Dales, including The Friar’s Head which is on site. For those who want to venture further afield, top eateries include The White Bear at Masham and Spice Restaurant in Bedale.

In short, buying a holiday home is probably the winning option!

There truly are so many advantages to owning your own holiday home rather than renting properties every time you go away.
