10 Reasons to buy a holiday home

Owning a holiday home is a dream for many individuals and families. The enjoyment of having a personal retreat in a beautiful holiday park cannot be overstated. It’s an investment that not only provides great satisfaction but also enriches your lifestyle and can even bring in some extra income for you. In this blog, we’ll delve into ten compelling reasons why purchasing a holiday home could be an excellent decision for you and your family.

1. Frequent getaways

One of the primary reasons for buying a holiday home is the opportunity for frequent getaways. Instead of dealing with the hassle of booking different accommodation each time you plan a holiday, having a holiday home allows you to escape to your preferred destination whenever you like. The convenience of having a place ready and waiting for you takes the stress out of making all the necessary arrangements. So if you’ve had a tough week at work and fancy an escape to the countryside, why not head down to your holiday home?

2. Cost-effectiveness

Compared to other types of holiday, staying in your own holiday home can be very cost-effective. Owning a holiday home allows you to avoid the price hikes often seen in hotels, especially during peak travel seasons. You can keep your running costs low too as you’re in control of all your expenses such as utilities and maintenance. All-in-all, having your own holiday home means enjoying holidays without the expense of escalating accommodation fees, making it an enjoyable and stress-free choice.

3. Rental income

When you own a holiday home at Harrison Holidays, you can sublet your holiday home through our Help to Let programme. Our Help to Let programme permits you to rent out your holiday home to generate income to cover your expenses. We’ll also manage all the bookings, check-ins, inventory, cleaning, and guest services during their stay. Rest assured, we will ensure that your holiday home is in perfect condition, just as you left it, for your next visit. 

Using the Help to Let programme can really help make your dream holiday home more affordable. Many people choose to use the rental income to pay part of their site fees and energy costs for the rest of the year when their holiday home is empty. This means there’s no stress, allowing you to enjoy owning your own holiday home when you’re using it and when you’re not.

4. Relaxation

A holiday home is a private sanctuary where you can escape the stresses of daily life. It allows you to create a space that suits your preferences and needs, providing a perfect getaway to relax, rejuvenate, and spend quality time with your friends and family. The familiar surroundings of your holiday home can offer a great sense of comfort and peace.


5. Customisation and personalisation

Unlike hotel rooms or other temporary accommodation, a holiday home can be personalised according to your tastes and requirements. You have the freedom to decorate, furnish, and organise the space in a way that reflects your personality, making your stay more enjoyable and comfortable every time you visit. It really is your own home from home.


6. A sense of community

Harrison Holiday parks are all about community. You’ll have the opportunity to meet like-minded individuals and forge lasting friendships with your fellow caravan owners. Our parks also have a fantastic range of social events and activities. If you’d like to learn more about the community events we have at our parks, check out one of recent blogs.


7. Park facilities

Harrison Holiday parks offer a wide range of amenities and facilities to enhance your stay, including some great new facilities we’ve added in 2023. At our Riverside Holiday Park we have opened a state of the art gym and refurbished our indoor pool and jacuzzi, This is all in addition to 19 new supersized plot development!

Wild Rose Holiday Park between the beautiful Pennines and Lake District has had some amazing new facilities added this year. We are very pleased to have added an additional 39 new supersized plots in a particularly secluded and tranquil area of the park. Our newly refurbished Coast to Country bar opened in 2022, and a fantastic new leisure and entertainment complex has just been completed too. If you’d like to learn more about this new development, take a read of our recent blog. Our other parks including Rawcliffe Hall, White Rose and Abbey Farm are also getting some spacious new pitch developments. 

8. Quality family time

Your own holiday home is a great place to spend time with your family. We have so many activities and facilities on site to ensure your kids have unforgettable memories of family holidays at our parks. Whether it’s a weekend escape or an extended holiday, our luxurious holiday homes allow you to build cherished memories together as a family. 

9. Health and well-being benefits

Spending time in natural surroundings, breathing in the fresh air can significantly contribute to improving your mental health and well-being. Fresh air, outdoor activities, and proximity to nature can help you de-stress, improve mental health, and promote physical fitness, providing a therapeutic escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

10. Escape from everyday routine

Lastly, a static caravan offers a unique escape from the daily grind. It’s a place where you can disconnect from work, responsibilities, and routine, allowing you to rejuvenate and return to your regular life with renewed energy and enthusiasm.

Whether it’s a soak in a hot tub, a quiet walk along in the countryside, or simply lounging on the deck with a cup of tea, your caravan and our park facilities offer so many relaxation options. It’s a space where you can unwind and rejuvenate your body and mind.
