VAT Rise on Static Caravan Sales Shelved! - June 13th, 2012

We were really pleased to hear recently that the government has now back-tracked on their plans to increase the VAT on static caravan sales later this year.

Along with the much maligned ‘pasty tax’, the ‘caravan tax’ was introduced in the budget earlier in the year, but after some determined campaigning from caravan park owners and many others in the tourism industry, they have decided to raise the VAT by just 5% instead of the planned 40%.

Obviously this is great news for anyone considering buying a caravan as a holiday home, and great news for us, because we can carry on offering superb luxury holiday homes on our Dorset park at fantastic prices.

Here are the latest caravans and luxury holiday lodges we have up for sale here at Newlands.

Luxury Caravans

Sited on Plots 65 and 66, (66a already sold), we have some brand new Swift Bordeaux 35’ x 12’ caravans. They come fully fitted with modern appliances, and are situated at the top of the park with stunning countryside views.

Price: £39,950.00

Bedrooms: 2

Includes: Fridge freezer, patio area and steps

Dorset Pine Lodges

Our luxury pine lodges are situated in the leafy woodland section of the park, and offer a way to embrace the great outdoors while still enjoying all mod cons in a fully equipped modern lodge.

Price: Starting from £127,000.00

Bedrooms: 3

All our holiday homes are available for use for 10 months of the year (park closes December – January). The prices quoted above include water, while gas and electric is metered. If you have any questions about the caravans or lodges mentioned above, feel free to give us call on 01297 560259. With the VAT hike now ruled out for this year, this may just be the perfect time to buy!
