at Franchis Holidays
You're bound to have lots of questions so here are some we've anticipated....
What price are your lodges?
Our prices vary according to model and plot position. If there's a particular lodge you like please just contact us for a quote.
What facilities are available on the park?
The joy of Franchis and what makes it special is that it’s a quiet, rural park where you can really get away from it all. Set in 16 acres of fields and woodland with a stream running along our boundary wildlife abounds and, with minimal park lighting, our night skies are fabulous.
We do have a small launderette, a popular little library and lots of leaflets for you to plan your days out .
What are the annual costs after purchasing a holiday home?
For single sized lodges (up to 14ft wide) the annual pitch fee is £2400 & for a double (up to 20ft wide) it's £2900 (inc VAT & any relevant taxes)
Gas and electricity are billed quarterly as used
We’re lucky enough to have our own private water supply here so that’s just £150 (inc VAT) per year.
Insurance is through your own choice of provider
How long can my holiday home stay at Franchis?
We offer purchasers of single sized holiday lodges a standard Licence Agreement of 25 years but this can be extended up to a maximum of 30 years for an additional cost at the time of purchase. Double lodges enjoy a standard agreement of 30 years which can again be extended up to 35 years for an additional cost.
When can I use my holiday home?
Any time you like for 11 months of the year, with February being the only month the park completely closes.
What models are available?
How quickly can we move in?
We will have an ABI Ambleside 2 bedroom holiday home here ready to enjoy from late November - our June arrival has recently sold.
Orders for other models usually take about 12 weeks but due to lockdown and increased demand we're unfortunately not expecting any new lodges to be ready before early 2022. If there's a particular lodge you like just let us know and we can provide you with more detail.
Can I live in my holiday home?
No. You can stay in it while you are on holiday but you must live somewhere else. We will need you to provide the address of your main residence, which must be your home. We will also require proof of your residential address by way of suitable documentation e.g. recent utility bills, current council tax bill, and driving licence or similar. We will require up to date copies of these documents on an annual basis.
Can I sublet my holiday home?
We do not allow commercial subletting, although close family and friends are welcome to stay at your holiday home.
What rights and obligations are there?
Franchis is a member of the BH&HPA (a trade association which ensures we reach a high standard) as well as the NHHPA so all our holiday home owners have a formal, written Licence Agreement as recommended by them. The Licence Agreement sets out the obligations of both the holiday home owner and the park owner and includes the park rules. Please ask for a sample copy if you would like more details.
