Top tips for preparing your Holiday Home for Winter

The Big Freeze is Back!

Yes, it’s that time of year again, when everything is covered in a smattering of frost, all sparkly and picture postcard perfect. A great time to get the fires roaring and get all snuggled up.

To keep this winter stress free here are some tips to make sure your Holiday Home is winter proof this year!

Not in your Holiday Home this winter?

Preventing pipes from bursting.

The one thing we all dread in winter, the possibility of a water pipe bursting when you just want to relax and snuggle up. With a few easy fixes, this possibility can soon be a thing of the past.

1. Insulate external or exposed pipes – simple but effective, this keeps the metal from coming into contact with the freezing air keeping the pipes at a constant temperature.This also stops heat loss making your holiday home more efficient.

2. Keep your Holiday Home at a minimum temperature of 5-12 degrees celsius at all times when possible, allowing air temperature to circulate above freezing.

3. For those choosing to leave holidaying for the summer months,  a ‘drain down’ is recommended.  Making sure when you get back to your Holiday Home, there is no unexpected occurrences that could have been prevented the previous winter.

This can be done by the owner or by caravan specialists. For more information on why this is beneficial click here!

Controlling excess moisture / condensation.

Condensation or excess moisture build up is mainly due to air flow or lack of it and temperature regulation.

With most lodges and caravans being predominantly double glazed and central heated this shouldn’t be too much of a problem, however here are some simple hacks to keep the moisture under control

1. Salt – yes that condiment we all will probably use daily is a great absorber. Adding a bowl of rock or flaked salt to a room or an affected area, (ie the window) will soak up extra moisture. A simple and effective hack.

For a standard option, Moisture traps or dehumidifiers can be bought to combat added moisture over the winter months.

2. Increase Air flow – Again another simple but useful tip. Moisture build up is predominantly down to lack of the moist air being able to escape. Just making sure your ventilation isn’t obstructed. Another option is to simply leave internal doors ajar allowing air to circulate.

Tackling these main culprits is the easiest way to ensure your Holiday Home is protected over the winter months. Why not give yourself peace of mind so you can sit back and relax.

Picture Postcard views

We have to say that all three of our parks are picture postcard indeed!

With stunning woodland views, to crisp lakeside vistas, each park has a view which is sure to take your breath away.

Exploring the park through a particular season will help you truly gauge what it’s like for you to be at a specific park. Brave the cold, come and experience the park at winter. We’ll put the kettle on!

As well as the breath taking views, you can also see what the holiday homes are truly like in winter.

What it feels like to be on the parks in winter and how each holiday home will perform, feel and react.

If you choose to visit in person. Our helpful sales team on each park can answer all questions about all you need to know about owning a holiday home in winter.

Some food for thought!

1.All of our are lodges built to British structural standards. All walls are 5 inches thick as well as central heating and double glazing. These lodges can withstand all of the British weather that will be thrown its way.

2. Most our Caravans depending on the model, come with gas or electric fires to get all snuggled up in a lovely warm living space this winter. Each caravan is insulated adding that extra warmth.

End of Season Sale!

The GREAT thing about Winter is the legendary Coastline End of Season Sale!

As we have transitioned into the off season, many parks go into close down. But not at Coastline Leisure, all the parks are open 12 months a year. Holiday whenever you wish. Our End of Season sale is in full swing! Check it here!

So let’s beat the winter blues and plan for a cosy winter AND 2019 holiday today! Always good to have a holiday to look forward too!
