Static caravan versus a lodge – which is the right choice for you?

 

Fancy having a home away from home in the Yorkshire Dales?

 

You’re not alone. More and more Brits are choosing staycations in the UK rather than trips abroad – and it’s pretty easy to see the appeal of owning your own holiday base here. For starters, there’s no booking stress, you know everything will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive, and there are all the facilities you need, too. Nestled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, Akebar Park also has plenty of activities for all the family. There’s The Forbidden Corner, the Birds of Prey Centre and theme parks nearby, as well as a golf course and country pub on-site. 

 

So, if you’ve chosen to go ahead and purchase a holiday home in award-winning Akebar Park (great choice!), there’s only one thing left to decide: should you go for a static caravan or a holiday lodge? Read on to discover both options and find out more about our caravans and lodges for sale in the Yorkshire Dales

 

Spot the difference

The main difference between lodges and static caravans are to do with size and price. Lodges can be up to twice the size of static caravans and are therefore great for larger families.   Additionally, because they are often built to residential standards there is usually superior insulation, which makes them ideal for those wanting to spend longer periods of time in them or holiday out of season.

Static caravans

Static caravans can really make your holiday feel like you’re embarking on an adventure – not to mention that caravans today are beautifully designed and cleverly built to maximise space. At Akebar Park, all of our caravans are fully furnished and can be as luxurious or as simple as you like – there’s something to suit every budget.   Caravans are also really easy to maintain and tend to have more flexibility in terms of designs, layouts and sizes – so you can choose a holiday base that completely suits your style and your own personal needs.   Finally, static caravans are more affordable than lodges, with prices at Akebar Park starting from £29,995.   You won’t get better prices than that in the Yorkshire Dales!

Holiday Lodges

One of the biggest benefits of holiday lodges is that they have more space.   With open-plan living, luxury interiors and all mod cons, they offer a truly luxurious holiday home. There is also the added bonus of superior insulation in the floors, roof and walls, so you can use your holiday base all year round.   Holiday lodges also benefit from more outdoor space, with many having their own balconies or verandas to enjoy those warm summer evenings – and with wood or wood-style exterior cladding, they are also really visually appealing too.   Our lodges are some of the best in the market with prices starting from £149,995.   Spacious family living, all mod cons and a year-round getaway – what more could you want?!
