Buying a new static caravan is a big purchase – but there are endless benefits to static caravan ownership.

For starters, it’s more affordable than you might think. There are also plenty of options available, and best of all, you and your family can enjoy a home away from home all year round.

It’s easy to see the appeal of owning your own holiday base in the UK; there’s no booking stress, you know everything will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive, and there are plenty of facilities to suit all the family. In fact, all you need to do is pack and go!

So, if you’re thinking about buying a static caravan, read on to discover why it’s such a good investment…


5 reasons why buying a static caravan is a good investment

1. It’s more cost effective than other accommodation options

For most people, the dream of owning a caravan or lodge remains just that – a dream. But with static caravans, that dream can become a reality.

As house prices continue to rise, static caravans offer a fantastic alternative with incredible value – and when you compare it to the cost of a couple of expensive family holidays abroad versus the benefits of owning your own caravan or lodge, the value really starts to add up.

The cost of renting holiday cottages or a caravan in the UK can be high, too – so it actually makes good financial sense to buy your own caravan. Static caravans are a really affordable option, with prices at Akebar Park starting from just £32,995.

Of course, you’ll need to factor in site fees, but you’ve also got the added benefit of the park’s professional team being on hand to maintain the park and assist with any issues you might have, which will help to keep maintenance costs to a minimum.


2. It’s a lifestyle investment

As well as being a financial investment, owning a static caravan is also a great lifestyle investment and can have a hugely positive effect on your mental health and well-being.

Static caravan ownership gives you the freedom to escape with your family as often as you like with less stress than owning a traditional holiday rental property. After all, there’s no better or more important investment than your health!

Buying a static caravan is a proven way to improve your mental health – and with the whole family getting in on the action, it can have a positive effect on all of your family’s wellbeing, too.

At Akebar, our site is only closed from early January to early February, so you and your family can enjoy plenty of quality time and escape to your own retreat in the Yorkshire Dales throughout the year.

3. It’s a great value holiday

When you own a static caravan, going on holiday will no longer cost you a fortune. For starters, despite exchange rates continuing to rise, by staying in the UK, your money will be worth the same wherever your caravan is sited – which is great for managing spending money budgets!

Also, because it’s your own space, you can take everything you need with you for your break. You can even stay in and cook, which means you don’t need to eat out and spend a fortune in local shops.

Plus, because most people choose to purchase static caravans in parks that aren’t too far away from home, you won’t have to worry about expensive airport transport and parking fees, either.


4. You can benefit from all mod cons

Caravans today are beautifully designed and cleverly built to maximise space.

At Akebar, all our lodges and static caravans come with central heating as standard. As well as central heating, some caravans even have underfloor heating, which is both energy efficient and super cosy.

Our static caravans and lodges are built to last, with very minimal ongoing maintenance. All are fully furnished, and they can be as luxurious or as simple as you like – which means there’s something to suit every budget.

Not only that, but because static caravans have plenty of flexibility in terms of designs, layouts and sizes, you can benefit from the luxury of a holiday base that completely suits your style and personal needs.

5. There are finance plans available

A static caravan is a big purchase – and as a result, most parks will have several different finance options available.

They will typically offer a number of different schemes over varying amounts of time, which means there will be plenty of options so you can choose the financial scheme that is right for you.
