Default 1 hour from Wigan with low site fees

Hi all

We are taking our first plunge into a static caravan. We run our own business so will only be able to use it at weekends, so VERY LOW site fees are required to make it worthwhile - otherwise its a no go.

We want something about an hours drive from Wigan, as long as there is a pub in walking distance and shops within driving distance, we can forego all the amenities as we have no kids or animals.

Preferably adult only but we appreciate thats a long shot so somewhere quiet will suffice.

Budget, we dont really have one but are happy to spend reasonable for the right caravan on the right site. We dont want new or nearly new, we started down that route and its just way too much money for us to chuck away as we will probably only use it 10 weekends a year - if that. Its just going to be a bolt-hole we can shoot off to after work on Friday and come back Sunday.

Our preferred area is South Lakes but we are open to suggestions.

We only need a 2 bed, we'd prefer more living and kitchen space than bedroom space. We prefer the larger caravans. A long site licence or an amenable site owner so we dont have to worry about getting kicked off or forced to upgrade in a couple of years.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

JOhn

Hi Kebabby,

Well if you're happy to consider NE Wales (Prestatyn) which will be aprox an hour from Wigan. We have some really good pre-owned caravans, and a low site fee offer on at the moment. Let me know if you're willing to consider :-)

The original idea was for a lodge but we were put off by the 15 year site licences and the upfront costs and site fees. Fortunately, we found a great deal at Bigland with a 50 year licence which swang us back.
