Lodge Sales

Luxury holiday lodge sales North Yorkshire – Our lodges can be viewed and bought at Abbots Green and there is also potential to have a lodge sited at our other Parks, subject to pitch availability.  The show homes give an excellent introduction to the lodge lifestyle and many customers prefer to buy something that they can ‘see and touch’.

We also understand that not everyone has the same taste. One bed lodge with a sumptuous en suite? A three bed family lodge with quirky bunk beds for the kids? Minimalist modern with a kitchen to ‘make Gordon Ramsay jealous’? All are possible with our bespoke service. 

When ordering ‘bespoke’ we work with the customer and their chosen manufacturer to produce the ideal lodge for them. This will then  often involve:

– Choosing the right plot and ensuring the orientation and size of windows and doors maximises the plot benefits

– Designing a CAD floor plan to suit

– A visit to the manufacturer to pick furnishings, flooring, kitchens and bathrooms etc.  This will often include a factory tour

Once everything is selected and signed for it is just a case of waiting for construction of your lodge and siting of it on your perfect plot!

Yes, there are electric gates, operated by a key fob at the entrance to the main York House Holiday Park, and a second set at the entrance to Abbots Green.

Can family and friends use my lodge, can I pass it on to family in a will?

Yes they may, all we ask is that they register at reception on arrival and conform to the Park rules. The remaining license may be passed on to direct family (as set out in the License Agreement) by arrangement with Head Office.

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. All you need to bring to your new holiday home is crockery, cutlery, glassware, bedding and towels and any other personal items.

What is the extent of my pitch, who looks after what, what do I look after?

The main area of the pitch will be to the main door (driveway side) with some ground to the front and back.  Overall size will vary from pitch to pitch.  York House will be responsible for all grounds maintenance around the pitch and communal areas.

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.

What length of warranty do the lodges have, what does this cover?

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.

Is there restricted access to Abbots Green?

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.

If I wish to sell my lodge, how do I go about it and are there any charges?

Should you wish to sell your lodge this would be done through the office. A commission of up to 15% (plus vat) would be payable upon sale – scale as below:

– up to 2 years 2.5%

– 3 to 5 years 5%

– 6 to 10 years 10%

– 11 years plus 15%.
