Navigating Skegness

Skegness, a popular seaside town in Lincolnshire, offers a fantastic opportunity for those seeking a holiday home with its stunning beaches, exciting entertainment, and welcoming atmosphere. However, exploring the market for static caravans in Skegness requires a combination of research, preparation, and a thorough understanding of this unique lifestyle. This guide will cover everything you need to know about purchasing and owning a static caravan in Skegness, from the benefits of being a caravan owner in Skegness to choosing a caravan park, budgeting, and embracing the static caravan lifestyle.

Why Buy a Static Caravan in Skegness?

Skegness, fondly nicknamed "Skeggy," is a popular destination for those looking to own a static caravan for its natural beauty, award-winning beaches, iconic Skegness Pier, the scenic Lincolnshire Wolds, and the thrilling rides at Bottons Pleasure Beach. Purchasing a static caravan is a wise investment for holidaymakers who find themselves returning to the scenic seaside town every year. Imagine being able to visit any time you need a weekend getaway or a long stay in the summer. That calls for one thing – a static caravan. 

Owning a Caravan in Skegness

Owning a static caravan presents a unique blend of comfort, community, flexibility, convenience, and cost-effectiveness, making it an increasingly popular choice for many. Here's a deeper look into why buying a static caravan is considered a wise decision:

  • Home away from home:

    Your static caravan will soon feel like a second home to you, once you customise it. A fully equipped kitchen, private bedrooms, and living space mean that family holidays can be enjoyed with all the comforts of home.
  • Sense of community:

    Caravan parks are home to tight-knit communities, and countless options for entertainment and nights out. 
  • Flexibility:

    Forget about the rigid check-in and check-out times of hotels or holiday rentals; with a static caravan, you can come and go as you please. This freedom allows for spontaneous weekend getaways or extended stays without the need to plan around availability or booking constraints.
  • Convenience:

    One of the best things about static caravans is all the storage space. Packing for the family can be stressful and time-consuming. Store all your summer belongings in the many panels and cupboards inside your static caravan. 
  • Budget-friendly:

    Purchasing a static caravan is cost-effective and you don’t lose out on luxury. Static caravans from Blue Anchor Leisure start at just £17,995, saving you money on future trips. 

Choosing the Right Park

The first step in your journey is selecting the right caravan park. With 18 to choose from, you’re bound to find that perfect balance between a tranquil retreat and an exciting and lively atmosphere. Each holiday park has its unique characteristics, amenities, and atmosphere, but what they all have in common is their close proximity to the picturesque Lincolnshire coastline. Consider what’s important to you and your family:

  • Amenities:

    Do you want a park with extensive facilities such as swimming pools, entertainment venues, and kids’ clubs, or do you prefer a quieter site that focuses on peace and natural beauty? At Golden Palm Resort you’ll have access to a diverse mix of onsite entertainment, whereas at Buttercup Meadow you’ll find your peaceful haven away from the crowd. 
  • Location:

    Proximity to the beach, local attractions, and the town centre can influence your park choice depending on your lifestyle preferences.
  • Community:

    The community vibe can vary from park to park. Book a tour around Blue Anchor Leisure’s caravan parks on 01754 874 444 to get a feel for the holiday atmosphere. 

Financial Considerations

While owning a static caravan is a cost-effective option, there are other costs to consider. Besides the purchase price of your caravan, you will need to factor in these additional expenses:

  • Site Fees:

    These annual fees cover the rental of your plot and contribute to the maintenance and security of the park. Fees vary based on the park's amenities and location. However, a select few Blue Anchor caravans are available for purchase without any site fees. 
  • Maintenance and Upkeep:

    Like any home, static caravans require maintenance. Set aside a budget for repairs and upkeep so that your caravan will stay in good condition. 
  • Utilities and Insurance:

    Budget for utilities such as water, gas, and electricity, plus insurance coverage for your caravan. If budgeting is proving difficult, reach out to our staff. We can help you secure a loan or financing plan for a smooth and easy caravan purchase. 

Finding Your Dream Caravan

With a clear understanding of your preferences and budget, you can begin the search for your dream caravan in Skegness. Decide which of the following is most important to you:

  • New vs. Pre-Owned: Do you want a brand-new caravan with the latest features or a pre-owned caravan?

  • Size and Layout: Caravan sizes at Blue Anchor Leisure range from a modest 28ft x 12ft to a gargantuan 42ft x 14ft. Consider how much space you and your family need and which layout appeals to you.
