Park Holidays UK

Can you live in a static caravan permanently?

Owning a holiday home is an excellent investment in enhancing your lifestyle. It provides you with a personal retreat along the beautiful British coastline or in the breathtaking countryside, where you can relish frequent visits all year round, and spend precious time with your loved ones away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Our holiday parks are open between 9 and 12 months a year, meaning as a Park Holidays UK or Park Leisure owner, you have the freedom to visit your new home away from home as frequently as you desire within this time. Whether you prefer a brief weekend escape or an extended stay to bask in the warmth of the summer sun, the choice is entirely yours.

But can you live in a holiday home on a holiday park permanently?

No, you can’t permanently live in a caravan or lodge on a holiday park. It’s essential to have a separate main address as your permanent residence, which your holiday home cannot serve as. The purpose of a holiday home is strictly for recreational and holiday use. While you can still enjoy numerous trips away throughout the year, holiday parks generally do not allow permanent residence and violating this rule could result in a breach of your licence agreement.

If your main residence is located outside of the UK, you will likely be required to provide proof when purchasing a holiday home. Similarly, if you choose to downsize to buy a holiday home, you will still need to maintain a main residence.

In summary, a holiday home is not considered a permanent residence. This is also why you are not required to pay council tax or stamp duty on holiday homes, static caravans, and lodges.

How long can I stay on a holiday park?

Every holiday park has its own open season and regulations regarding the maximum duration holiday home owners can stay on-site per year. If you are contemplating an extended stay in your caravan or lodge, it is advisable to have a conversation with the management team of the holiday park. It is possible that there is a limit on the number of consecutive days you can reside in your holiday home, such as 60 days. This duration is typically determined by the local authority governing the holiday park.
