Advice For Owning a Holiday Home in Devon

Your Caravan purchase.

The Price of our caravans vary according to location and whether a wooden decking is required (which we build ourselves). The purchase price will, however, cover delivery, siting, connections to all services and gas/electrical safety certificates where applicable, steps with handrail, tv aerial, smoke detectors, fire extinguishers and VAT.

All caravan holiday homess and plots remain for sale until a deposit is paid. A 10% non-refundable deposit secures the caravan at which time it will be removed from the marketing list. The balance is then payable prior to occupation normally within 30 days unless alternatively agreed.

If purchasing in the closed season, a 25% deposit is payable and the balance due prior to the start of the season.

If you are keen to purchase a caravan of your own choice at Dunscombe Manor, we are usually able to accommodate your wishes if negotiated in timely fashion - usually before November.

Site fees are standard throughout the Park. They cover all rates, refuse, water, site maintenance, and management charges. They generally increase with inflation. Charges outside our control will be passed on with explanation and forewarning where possible.

Electricity and LPG (gas) are metered and paid for at the end of the season. There is also a small meter rental charge. Annual Gas and Electrical safety Certificates are required and can be arranged through the Park management.

Caravan Holiday Home or Leisure Lodge Insurance is a requirement at Dunscombe Manor. We can provide cover with one of the Industry leading brokers which removes any claim difficulties or uncertainty. With this cover we are able to intervene to reduce loss or damage. Should you wish to provide your own cover we are not able to provide this service and must make a small administration charge to keep an up to date record of suitable cover.

Apart from a de-siting charge at the end of a caravan’s life, there are no other mandatory hidden fees. However, we do provide maintenance services for a market charge.

We have some wonderful walks in the area and dogs are welcome on our Devon Holiday Park. The usual requests are made to keep your dogs under control at all times, not to be left unattended and please clear up after them.
