In a recent poll, 38% of static caravan and holiday lodge owners said they would like to escape to their static caravan or lodge during the winter months – and they’ve got a point!
Although the end of the season isn’t traditionally the most popular time to buy a static caravan, it’s actually one of the best times to do so. Firstly, there are few things better than snuggling up and relaxing with loved ones in your holiday home whilst the frost twinkles outside. But there are other reasons why the end of the season is such a fantastic time to look at static holiday homes for sale, from great deals to having the pick of the market…
You can get some really good deals
First of all, the end of the season is one of the best times to get a good deal on buying a static home or caravan. A lot of people decide to give up their homes or move on at the end of the season, which means there will be plenty of choices available. Whether they want to avoid paying next season’s site fees or ground rent and want a quick sale, they want to upgrade to a new caravan themselves or they have just decided to move on, the end of the season is a logical time to sell up. And because most people will want to get a quick sale, you will probably be able to give your bargaining skills a whirl! Not buying second-hand? Salespeople will still have targets to achieve at the end of the season and no holidaymakers to help reach them – so you might well get a deal on a brand new caravan or lodge, too!
Start 2020 as you mean to go on
Another benefit of buying a holiday home at the end of the season is that come next year, you’ll be ready and raring to go! Is your New Year’s resolution to spend more quality time with the family? Or perhaps to focus more on your health and mental wellbeing? If so, you can get the wheels in motion now so you can start the new decade off with a bang. More people will be looking once the 2020 season starts, so by looking at caravans and luxury static holiday homes for sale now, you can get ahead of the game and have the pick of the bunch!

Cosy up with your loved ones
Of course, you don’t have to wait until next year to spend time in your new home away from home! As our site is only closed from early January through to early February, there’s nothing stopping you escaping the madness of the festive season with your family right now. Winter weekends at Akebar are some of our favourites: our site is still open but the touring sites are closed so it’s nice and quiet – which means you can enjoy all the benefits of the beautiful surroundings but enjoy a bit of peace and tranquillity too. And on cold winter evenings, who doesn’t love snuggling up with the family, enjoying some hot chocolate and cracking open a board game?
Make your lodge ready for winter
At Akebar, all of our lodges and static caravans come with central heating as standard, so there’s no need to worry about Jack Frost nipping at your nose. As well as central heating, some caravans even have underfloor heating which is both energy efficient and super cosy – and if you’re heading off on a winter break, make sure you pack plenty of electric blankets to make sure you stay warm and snug. Of course, if you’re in the market for a luxury lodge, there is another perfect winter addition – hot tub anyone?! If you’re lucky enough to have a caravan with a hot tub then this is the perfect time of year for you. There’s nothing better than sitting in a hot tub and watching the steam rise into the freezing cold air – it’s one of the best feelings in the world! Sound good? Check out our luxury lodges and static holiday homes for sale for a bit of inspiration!
