Frequently asked questions

Holiday Home Ownership brings you the freedom to enjoy as many breaks as you like – no need to book ahead and everything is all ready and waiting for when you arrive.  However, we appreciate that purchasing your first holiday home can be a little daunting. To help we have collected some questions we are frequently asked about Holiday Home Ownership here at Callander Holiday Park, which we hope will be useful.

Site fees are the primary ongoing cost associated with holiday home ownership. Site Fees for Lodges are from £3435 and from £3025 for Caravans.

Our site fee is made up of a few different elements including: the ground rent (the cost to keep your home sited here all year), water and waste & recycling and is inclusive of VAT.

After the pitch fees, the other main costs of holiday home ownership are the following: Electricity: which is supplied on a metered basis and invoiced during the season. Gas: available via LPG cylinders, additional cylinders are purchased when required via office.  

Insurance: we operate a park insurance scheme via Leisure Days.  Cover is comprehensive, at very competitive rates and on a new for old basis. For a typical holiday caravan with decking and contents the annual insurance (including IPT) would be in the region of £400.

The Holiday Park season 10-month main season from March 15th January 3rd.

Not necessarily, unless you will be using you (or others) will be using the TV at your home at the same time as your holiday home. If you will be using both simultaneously then you will need a separate licence for your holiday home. If not, then you will need to complete a declaration with TV Licensing informing them that you won’t be using the televisions in each location at the same time. 

As they are not permanent ‘brick built’ structures, they behave in a very similar way to cars, so will depreciate along with their licence agreement.  

Other than wear and tear and minor breakages, modern Holiday Homes shouldn’t require too much in terms of maintenance. We strongly advise that your holiday home is gas safety tested each year and that your home is drained down while not being used in the Wintertime to prevent it freezing and causing damage to the pipework. We can assist with any maintenance so you can just sit back and enjoy your leisure time.

No. Sub-letting is not permitted in our holiday homes. However, you can allow family and close friends to enjoy it.

You can of course upgrade your holiday home at any point.  Just let us know that you’re interested, we will then meet with you to discuss your options,  value your existing caravan and start the simple upgrade process into a shiny new Holiday Home.

We do have park rules and all Holiday Home Owners must adhere to them at all times. These are available upon request.    

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer finance directly. Most Holiday Home Owners buy their homes outright, but others often use a personal loan, or you may also take a look at Pegasus Finance or Black Horse, they offer specialist lending for holiday homes and lodges.  

Brand New Holiday Homes will come with a manufacturer warranty, which can on some aspects of the home be up to 10 years. Further details on warranty for specific holiday homes can be supplied upon request. Warranty can vary on pre-owned holiday homes and lodges, if you are unsure, please ask for details.  

Modern holiday homes offer a true home from home experience – with the most stylish of interiors that wouldn’t be out of place in a high-end interior design magazine. Homes come supplied fully furnished and equipped with everything you will ever need including integrated appliances.

100%! We are very pet friendly.  There are many walks in and around the Park offering plenty of exercise areas for you and your four-legged friend.

The best way to find out would be to come and take a look around the park and you can view the holiday homes or the available pitches and see if Callander Holiday Park is the place for you.

We can also answer any other questions, which you might have. We would be more than happy to show you around so please get in touch with us to arrange a visit by calling us on 01877 330 265 or by emailing [email protected]
