When choosing a static caravan park for your caravan, there are a number of things you should consider.
Caravan parks come in all shapes and sizes, from the family-friendly caravan park where children can play safely to the quiet and peaceful caravan park for those who want to get away from it all. You should also consider what type of facilities are available at your chosen static caravan park.
It may be that you want to go for something more basic so that you can save on costs, but make sure that there is adequate parking space and that you have easy access to utilities such as electricity and water.
If you are planning on spending a lot of time in your caravan during the summer months, it might also be worth finding out if there are any activities on offer at the site. These could include swimming pools, children’s clubs and other entertainment options such as miniature golf courses or playgrounds.
The most important is your budget, but there are other factors you should consider before making your decision.
Is it close to where you live?
If you have a busy lifestyle, it can be hard to find time to travel to and from the park. You may want to find one close by so that it’s easier for you and your family members.
Is it safe?
You want a place that will feel safe for you and your family. This means that there must be security measures in place, including CCTV, alarms and lockable gates or doors. It also means that there must be no crime or drug-related activity within earshot of the park itself.
Is it well maintained?
You don’t want to go somewhere where the facilities are rundown or dirty because this can affect how much fun you have while visiting the park with your children or other family members.
How big is the site?
If there are too many people on site, then this can make it difficult for everyone to enjoy themselves without feeling crowded out by others around them who might be making noise or causing disturbances around them at all hours of the day and night.
Safety – check the security of the site you are considering against other parks in the area. Also look at what kind of fencing is used and whether there are CCTV cameras or a resident warden on site.
Accessibility – make sure that you can easily get to and from the park by car, bus or train if it is not located within walking distance of your home.
Facilities – look for facilities such as laundries, hot showers, swimming pools and playgrounds on site or nearby so that you do not have to go off site with children or pets.
