Your guide to buying a holiday home

We know that choosing to buy a holiday home is a big decision, and one that you want to get right.

We’ve developed this helpful buyers’ guide to take you through the process, one step at a time, and to provide answers to any questions you might have.

If there’s anything we haven’t covered, then please feel free to pop in to one of our holiday parks and speak to a member of the team or give us a call for an informal chat.

Why Meridian Parks?

Meridian Parks is a family business, built up over three generations of the Maguire family, who collectively have over 40 years’ experience of working in the holiday parks industry. The family has built up the business from just a single park to now running a number of holiday parks set in a range of stunning locations across the North East, North Yorkshire and the Scottish Borders, whilst still remaining true to their roots and providing a hands-on family service.

We pride ourselves on the fact that all our holiday homes are privately owned and operated, so there is no subletting or holiday hire, offering you peace of mind, a sense of community and a real home away from home.

British Holiday and Home Parks Association

We are licensed members of the British Holiday & Home Parks Association (BHHPA), the national organisation which represents holiday, residential and touring pitches across the UK.

Meridian Parks is licensed by the BHHPA and, unlike large commercial holiday parks, operates within the organisation’s policies and guidelines, giving you additional peace of mind.

Why buy a holiday home?

There are many advantages to buying a holiday home. Not only does it offer you the freedom to take a holiday whenever you please at no extra cost, it also offers a real sense of community. There are many other reasons why people choose to buy, and if you’re a seasoned holiday home owner you won’t need us to tell you what they are.

But if you’re new to the world of holiday home ownership, or even just considering it, we can answer any questions you might have and help you find the right solution that meets the needs of you and your family.
