Any rental allowed?
Currently we have no facility for sub letting. The holiday lodges are for your own use and family and friends may stay with permission. All we ask is that you notify reception so that we know who is on the park.
The Park operates 2 lodges as holiday rentals/try before you buy.
Do the lodges come fully equipped, are there any extras to pay for?
All lodges come fully furnished with fitted kitchens, including a fridge or fridge freezer – dishwashers or washing machines are usually optional extras. Bedrooms and bathrooms are fully fitted including beds, with matching bed sets as an optional extra. Flat screen TV and sound systems are optional extras.

Do the lodges require any maintenance, how often?
Lodges will require some maintenance to the exterior which will need treating about every 3 years. We ask that lodges are only treated with one particular product – details are available from the Park Office.

All lodges come with a Platinum seal 10 year warranty, this does not cover normal wear and tear.
Can I have satellite TV, telephone and internet access?
Yes, there is a wi-fi system on site through which you can access skype. Skype software allows phone and video calls to be made through the internet and the great thing is that if you connect to another registered skype user the call is free.
When I buy a lodge, how long will it be from putting a deposit down to moving in?
This will depend upon whether the lodge is to be ordered from factory or if it is already in situ. Currently lead times can be up to 11 months! So if you cannot wait to move in better to buy one in situ!
Once I have decided on a pitch and lodge, how do I pay for it?
Reserving your chosen pitch requires a £5,000.00 deposit – this is non-refundable after 7 days. Having decided which lodge you would like on your pitch and signed the specification you will be required to pay a 35% deposit of the full price, at this stage we will order your lodge. When your lodge is off the production line you will be required to pay 55% of the final cost with the final balance of 10% (less the £5,000.00 pitch reservation fee) due once the lodge is ready for transport.
If you are buying a lodge from stock we would ask you to sign the relevant paperwork and pay a £10,000 deposit – this is non-refundable. As soon as the balance is paid and funds cleared you will be free to move in.
York House Holiday Park can arrange finance for the purchase. Please ask us for details.

Abbots Green is an exclusive, gated development so only vehicles with the correct fob will be granted access. Obviously there will be lodges to sell so we will have viewings of the area.
