from late March to the last Sunday in October. We open in 2017 on Thursday 23rd March and

Letting of your caravan holiday home is allowed, however, it is required that
the holiday home remains primarily for your own or your family’s use and not used as a commercial venture.
The park owner does not act as a letting agent or own a hire fleet. The large majority of holiday
homeowners do not let.
Agreements can be extended annually
provided the holiday home is kept in good order and appearance. While there is no age limit for a holiday
home to stay on the park, it is usual that a holiday home in it’s teens would not be considered suitable for resale
on the park, though condition and appearance would still be the main criteria. Commission (11.3636%+VAT)
is charged on caravan holiday-homes resold on the Caravan Park and is incorporated in the ‘Display Price’ i.e.
price shown on the Sales List & Sales Signs.
The Park is owned
and managed by Valerie Crockett, who has a long association with the Park, her parents having bought it in January 1967.
Her home is adjacent, so there is someone in residence throughout the year. Assistant Manager, Billy
Annal, started working at the Park in March 1995 and is able to provide many of the maintenance services for the Park and
Caravan Holiday Homes.
