In addition to the annual site fee, there are several other running costs to consider when buying a holiday home/lodge:
Utilities: You will be responsible for paying for utilities such as electricity & gas. The cost will depend on your individual usage of your holiday home/lodge, with usage for each measured by a meter.
We partner with reputable energy providers & manage the negotiation of unit rates on your behalf, passing these on directly with no markup.
Insurance: As part of the Site Licence Agreement, your holiday home/lodge must be fully insured annually, which typically includes buildings and contents.
As with bricks and mortar, the cost of insurance can vary based on factors like the value of your holiday home/lodge and the level of coverage you choose.
For your convenience, we work alongside a reputable insurance broker, Arthur J. Gallagher Insurance Brokers Limited (Gallagher), from whom we can arrange suitable cover for your holiday home/lodge at an appropriate premium.
TV Licence: Under UK law, you will need a licence to watch or record TV programmes, stream live TV or use an online streaming service.
Hot tubs: If you decide to purchase a holiday home/lodge with the added benefit of a hot tub, there will be an annual charge of £695 + VAT. This nominal charge covers the general upkeep of your hot tub in accordance with HSE guidelines. It includes services such as emptying and refilling the hot tub, energy management to reduce unnecessary consumption, dry oxide cleaning, and regular chemical checks.
