So what are Seasonal Pitches?
So people are using their caravans in several different ways. There is the obvious, touring by towing your own caravan behind your car and moving from place to place. Then, as already mentioned there is storage for added security, and store and stay for the benefit of having your caravan ready and waiting for you at your chosen site and pitch…but there’s another alternative! This is the hobby that keeps giving!
Seasonal pitches offer you the chance to not only store your caravan securely and stay on a site you have chosen but to leave that caravan on your very own dedicated pitch where it does not move for the whole of the holiday season. At the Dorset Hideaway you get to choose your pitch in your preferred location on site. The caravan stays on that pitch from March through to October meaning you don’t need to pack anything away each time you leave site and it is all there where you left it when you arrive back on site. No need to retune the TV & Radio, no need to set up all the water and waste paraphernalia as these are all plumbed directly in to the mains. The pitches are all a minimum of 10x10m or larger, are level and gravel based to keep the area clean and dry in wet weather and chalk based to enable awning pegs to penetrate. They also come with small or larger areas of grass and are fully serviced and screened on both sides with hedges.
Save your marriage!!
The other huge advantage is being able to put up your caravan awning and leave it up all season! An awning is often described as ‘a divorce in a bag’! So possibly a seasonal pitch could be described as saving many a marriage 🙂 They are fully serviced meaning they have a fresh water tap and heated coil in case of frost so keeping water running early and late in the season, individual light, EHU socket and grey water drainage.
Your very own holiday home
A seasonal pitch is a wonderful option if winter storage isn’t an issue for you and you would simply love to spend your free time, from 31st March until 31st October relaxing and enjoying our beautiful slice of Dorset. They are for your own use and immediate family and offer great value over booked pitches for the same duration. The ultimate luxury of a seasonal pitch is that it becomes your very own holiday home that you can come and go to as often as you like without the need to ever book a pitch again. You’ve no need to worry about arriving before closing time or having to get packed up before check out time, no need to stress about rain and packing a wet awning away that then has to reappear once home! You just turn up to your fully set up caravan when you feel like it – that is the greatest benefit and ultimate luxury and flexibility of a seasonal pitch.
They are let on a first come first served basis and we operate a waiting list once they are full.
