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

If you choose a holiday lodge that is currently on the park and on a plot ready for sale, we require a deposit of £5,000, along with a signed Purchase Agreement. The Purchase Agreement outlines all the elements of your purchase.

 

Cleared funds for the full balance are to be in place prior to the agreed handover date.

WHAT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

All of our holiday homes come fully furnished, along with all the expected white goods that help to make up a real home for the ultimate “turn-key” experience. These appliances include a fridge freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. 

 

Externally, a holiday home comes with a bespoke-decking package to compliment and maximise the enjoyment of each plot. We really think about how our holiday homeowners will want to use their outside space—so we’ve created the ultimate entertainment and relaxation area.  

WHAT SERVICES ARE CONNECTED TO THE LODGE?

The services connected are:

  • Gas (LPG) - piped underground
  • Electrics – individual meters
  • Water & Sewer mains
WHAT ARE THE RUNNING COSTS OF A LODGE? (PRICES CORRECT AS OF AUG 2018)

The annual running costs include:

  • Site Fees (inclusive of VAT) - £5,500
  • Insurance – a “new for old” policy is required (an estimated £300-£500)
  • Electrics – individually metered and billed quarterly per year
  • Gas (LPG) – individually metered and billed quarterly
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, but rest assured they are built to residential specification (BS3632) so you can take advantage of every season.

 

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

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. 

 

The great news is, your brand-new holiday home at Gull Rocks Beach has an 11-month policy, meaning it’s available to use the majority of the year with no restrictions on how long you can stay for, offering complete flexibility to suit your lifestyle.

HOW LONG CAN A HOLIDAY HOME STAY ON THE PARK?

All new holiday homes 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).

 

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.

 

Existing owners often sell through word of mouth, web-based advertising or more traditional methods such as estate agents; please remember that the Park can support you through this process also.

 

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 CHILD-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 and local amenities 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. We do however, insist that all dogs are kept on a lead at all times when walking around the Holiday Park.

IS THERE WI-FI IN MY NEW HOLIDAY HOME?

Yes. Wi-Fi is available for everyone staying at the Park and every holiday home has its own modem capable of creating individual Wi-Fi 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.
