Financial help to buy your dream holiday home

Oaklands Park, near Clacton-on-Sea, in EssexFor those older couples, who are keen to downsize and buy a holiday home, as well as perhaps a smaller main home, the stagnant property market has made things much harder. However, help may now be at hand.

This comes from major leisure group, Park Holidays UK, which now has a scheme that can help couples part-exchange their house for a holiday lodge or caravan - with a guaranteed sum left to fund a new smaller home.

Buyers can then choose a holiday home from one of Park Holiday UK’s 23 parks in Southern England, with the certainty that their existing house will find a buyer.

The purchaser behind the scheme will be one of the UK’s largest house buying companies, which will use valuations from local estate agents to establish a price which they will then guarantee to pay.


The holiday homeowners can then set about finding a new smaller permanent house in addition to their holiday home, sure in the knowledge that the sale is secure and will not fall through.

More information about the guaranteed property sales programme is available on the company’s website, at
