The freedom to escape at a moment’s notice.
This year more than ever, Britons are choosing to holiday at home and rediscover everything that is great about the UK. Imagine if you could enjoy holidays with family and friends, whenever you choose, in your favourite spot of Scotland or North East England. That’s the beauty of holiday home ownership with Verdant Leisure! This year, we have seen a huge increase in the number of people joining Verdant Leisure as holiday home owners. What’s more, a number of these customers have had no experience of holiday parks in the past. So, let’s explore swapping overseas breaks for a UK holiday home from home.
Travel less, relax more
First up is the time spent travelling, which most of our customers say is very important to them. Typically, our customers live within a 90-minute driving distance of our parks. This means they can escape to their holiday home after work on a Friday, with no airport lounges, flights, or transfers to worry about. Our parks are ideally located within 90 minutes of major cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Newcastle making it easy to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. If you don’t have work commitments, you can choose to holiday at a moment’s notice when you own your own holiday home, and our customers love that flexibility.
Location, location, location
For us, this is a key factor when choosing the location for your holiday home. It’s important that you find a location that you and your family will love for years to come. That’s why we believe that anyone thinking of holiday home ownership at our parks would benefit from joining us on for a park tour. It can be difficult to choose the perfect holiday location without seeing your options first hand, so a park tour allows you to explore the park, spend time in the local area, enjoy the facilities, speak to existing holiday home owners, and meet our team. When you choose your perfect location, you have peace of mind that it will meet your expectations every time you visit.
So much beauty to explore
We have lost count of the times when our customers have said “It’s like a beach in the Caribbean” when talking about Pease Bay. The “We have the best of both worlds” is another common phrase amongst our existing holiday home owners and that’s exactly what our parks offer in terms of coast and countryside. Riverside is in the heart of Northumberland, on the edge of the national park – it truly is a walker’s paradise. Yet, just a short drive away is the stunning North East coastline with white sandy beaches such as Bamburgh. There is so much to see and do in the areas surrounding our parks, each time you visit can feel like a new holiday experience.
Your dream home from home*
When you own a caravan or lodge, you can make it into the perfect retreat so there are no unexpected surprises when you plan your holidays. Long gone are the days of cramped spaces with limited facilities. Today’s caravans and lodges offer modern spaces with home from home features such as double glazing, energy efficient heating systems, modern kitchens, and mod cons such as USB charging points as standard. Higher specification models provide walk in wardrobes, utility rooms, full size baths and washing machines. The UK’s leading manufacturers provide a range of models to suit every taste and budget. It’s then down to you to add your personal homely touches to create a place you’ll love to escape to.
A place for the whole family
Choosing a location that caters for the whole family can be a real challenge when planning your holidays. Grandparents may be seeking peace and relaxation, younger children want lots of action, and don’t forget the dog! When you own a holiday home, you can plan around the whole family, meaning more time to focus on creating memories together. Grandparents can relax on the decking area whilst children splash in the pool, couples can enjoy leisurely walks whilst teens make new friends – we’ve got you covered with park wide Wi-Fi too! Many of our existing customers are dog owners so your pooch is guaranteed a warm welcome when it visits our parks.
Our parks’ season length ranges from 46 weeks to 52 weeks. You cannot use your holiday home as your main residence, but you do have freedom to enjoy endless holidays throughout the season. Weekends, main school holidays, mid-week working breaks, the choice is yours. 80% of our existing customers visit their holiday home every month** to get the most value from their purchase.
