Ownership at Gull Rocks Beach
HOW DO I BUY A HOLIDAY HOME LODGE?

If you choose to buy a holiday lodge that’s currently on the Park, and on a plot that’s ready for sale, we require an initial deposit of £5,000 to reserve the holiday home, along with a signed Purchase Agreement which outlines all the elements of both your purchase and terms of ownership.

 

To prepare for a move-in date, the deposit required will then be 50% of the agreed asking price.

 

We will then require the full cleared balance to be in place before the agreed handover date. 

WHAT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

All of our holiday homes come fully furnished, often with home comforts such as matching bedding and cushions that help to make it an ultimate “turn-key” experience. They all have fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, along with all the expected white goods: a fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher.  

 

Externally, a holiday home lodge comes with bespoke decking to complement and maximise the enjoyment of each plot: we really think about how our holiday homeowners will want to use their outside space.

IS MY HOLIDAY HOME JUST FOR LEISURE?

Yes. A holiday home cannot be used as a permanent residence. This does mean that your holiday home doesn’t incur Council Tax cost however!

 

Every Park is issued with a Site Licence to operate and this states when holiday homeowners are able to use their holiday home. 

 

We also have buy to let options on your holiday home, ensuring you can make a return on your investment. 

HOW SOON CAN I START TO USE MY HOLIDAY HOME?

Once purchased, you can start to enjoy your holiday home in as little as two weeks, or even sooner depending on the situation of your chosen home and plot.

 

Bespoke holiday homes however, take around 20 weeks to be manufactured from sign-off, and then need to be transported, sited and landscaped. We want to make sure everything is perfect and ready for you to move into. 

HOW LONG CAN A HOLIDAY HOME STAY ON THE PARK?

All new holiday homes (BS3632) come with a 30-year Licence Agreement – the one issued by Gull Rocks Beach is the model standard agreement by The British Holiday Homes & Holiday Parks Association (BH&HPA). However, we believe that we've gone beyond the standard terms for the sole benefit of our holiday home owners. 

 

This agreement has been designed to offer both parties security and peace of mind to create a continuing, harmonious relationship.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I WANT TO SELL?

You are free to sell your holiday home at any time, with all the benefits you purchased it with along with the remaining balance of the Licence Agreement.

 

We will help guide you through the process and assist to sell where possible. Although we don't actively market privately owned homes, we keep a list available in the office and with your authorisation, will show your home to interested parties. 

 

Private sales must be processed through the site office so that the Park can ensure the new owners are fully briefed on the Terms & Conditions of the Licence Agreement. 

IS THE PARK FAMILY-FRIENDLY?

Yes! Part of owning a holiday home means creating lasting, treasured memories with your friends, family and loved ones. Take advantage of both Park facilities and the local attractions that are close-by: there are so many family-friendly options for you to experience. 

IS THE PARK DOG FRIENDLY?

Of course! Man’s best friend is welcome to enjoy your new lifestyle also. Our coastal location and host of beautiful walking trails available means it's a perfect location for our four-legged friends.

 

We do however, insist that all dogs are kept on a lead at all times when walking around the Park.

IS THERE WIFI IN MY NEW HOLIDAY HOME?

Yes. WiFi is available for everyone staying at the Park and every holiday home has its own modem capable of creating individual WiFi networks, to ensure your privacy is secured. This also allows you to set up remote heating functions such as Hive and Nest, so your home can be just the way you like it when you arrive.

WHO OWNS GULL ROCKS BEACH?
