Cost of Holiday Home Ownership

Site Fees

One of the costs associated with owning a holiday home is the annual site fee, which covers the cost of the park's facilities, activities and services such as security and landscaping. There are other running costs, including local rates, gas, electricity, water and insurance. Our on park sales team are ready to talk you through these costs and how you might wish to reduce or manage these to suit your budget.


Buying a caravan holiday home is a big decision. Of course, the lifestyle opportunities are brilliant, and having a home away from home in the country or by the sea is so appealing, but, we also appreciate that you need to feel relaxed and comfortable about the financial outlay.

Below is some information on what’s involved, and some ideas on how you might go about making caravan holiday home ownership as easy as possible.


Owning your own Holiday Home could be more affordable than you think. At Solway Holiday Village we offer a managed subletting income plan which gives you the opportunity to earn valuable income which will go towards offsetting the cost of ownership. This applies to our holiday LODGES only and not caravan holiday homes.

We'll take care of everything for you - from making the bookings, to ensuring your holiday home is in the same condition as you left it. In fact, depending on your level of usage it could be possible to offset most of your annual site fees for the following year.
