So you have a caravan and a car with an 85% kerb weight margin to tow this caravan and yet it still seems like a chore and the fuel gauge goes down faster than you thought and then there’s the wear and tear on the car itself, and you! With the roads not getting any quieter to navigate especially over the ever more popular bank holiday weekends. Perhaps you’re at a stage in life where you want to take things easier and have more free time to spend on holiday. So what to do? Give up caravanning? Downsize… go back to a tent (brr!) upgrade to a motorhome and upgrade the bank balance as the same time?
Or perhaps there’s another solution…. why not buy yourself a seasonal pitch where you bring the caravan to the campsite and then use it all season as often as you like for one annual payment?
If you don’t tow but would still would like a caravan and you don’t have a towball or car big enough to tow, there’s still a solution to that. Either get us to tow it from where you have bought it, or ask the dealer or seller (they often will do this as part of the sale) or otherwise there are specialist people who do this all day long (we have a local person who is insured to do this). So then you can now go ahead and purchase the caravan of your dreams without worrying about towing ratios etc
The season for seasonal pitches are from 31st March to 31st October each year. Giving you a holiday home for the best part of the year for a fraction of bricks and mortar and when you’ve had enough you can just get it towed to the next area you want to visit for the year. This is becoming an ever more popular way of caravanning with upwards of a dozen calls a week to us a rather modest small site, regarding seasonal pitches!
Most include electric as part of the cost, some have meters on the pitches, others charge at the end of year. We operate a fair usage policy, we read the meter in and we read the meter out, if your usage has been heavy we charge a bit on top to cover this. We feel this is fair to all and to us as seasonal pitches are half their usual cost if let out individually.
Some dos and don’ts: You can leave an awning up all season (at your own risk) but you must use storm straps, tie down kits and proper anchor pegs in the ground so as not to cause damage to your neighbours or our pitches. You cannot have gas cylinders outside the van they must be in the front gas locker. You cannot put things outside your pitch boundary. You cannot sublet your unit. All visitors must still report to reception for site safety and must pay a visitors fee. You still need to empty your chemical toilet in the toilet emptying room in the Scrub building and not in the grey water waste drain on your pitch! Your water tap needs to be turned off when not occupying the vehicle.
