When you own your own holiday home, there is no booking, searching for the best deal, frantically packing, and trying to stay under the airline’s weight limit. You can just get up and go! Owners often leave the necessities and luxuries at their holiday homes, meaning your packing can be as minimal as you choose, from taking all your DVDs for a movie marathon to bringing a fancy new dress for a night out in the onsite bar & restaurant.


amazing local areas

Darwin Escapes has a variety of destinations offering ownership, from North Wales to Cornwall, all our locations all have beautiful local areas waiting to be discovered. You’ll be able to spend sunny evenings strolling along the beach or heading to your local pub for a few drinks, or you may want to jump in the car for a short drive to the many retail parks, cinemas, and boutiques available around our destinations.

Your holiday home is exactly that, yours. Imagine going on holiday and being able to take your own style with you, everything inside your holiday home has been personally chosen by you and it’s exactly how you like it. Home comforts are a must when relaxing and recharging, you’ll feel at home as soon as you open the door.


reduced travel time

Owning your own holiday home means getting to go on holiday whenever the mood strikes!. When you go abroad you’ll normally spend a few months looking for the cheapest deal, then you’ll travel an hour or more to the airport, wait around in the airport for up to 3 hours, before sitting in an airplane for anything up to 8 hours. That is a lot of time spent on one or two weeks away! Whereas when you own your own holiday home, you’re generally only a few hours’ drive away from your own personal escape, and it’s waiting for you whenever you’re ready.

Modern living often means busy lives, finding quality family time can be a struggle. But owning your own holiday home means getting quality time is just a drive away, picking your little ones up on a Friday after school and heading to your personal escape is the quality time everyone needs. You can spend your weekends relaxing in your holiday home, exploring the local area, seeing friends and making the most of the facilities, there will be something for everyone.


more holidays

Due to less travel time, not having to pay every time you visit and not having to book, you can have as many holidays as you choose! Some of our destinations are open 12 months of the year, such as Hawkchurch Resort & Spa in South Devon, and some are open for 10 months out of the year, like New Pines Holiday Home Park in North Wales. Our ownership community often spend the 6-week school summer holidays at their home away from home, spending time together and relaxing, while enjoying the facilities and events taking place.


reduced cost per holiday

Did you know purchasing and running a holiday home is actually cheaper than a 2 week holiday abroad every year? Over a 10 year period a 2 week break abroad will cost you around £1.75 per hour*, over the same time period the cost of running a holiday home only costs around 50p per hour! That’s a big saving, plus you will get more frequent breaks throughout the year, not just for two weeks! Read our finance guide for more information.

*costs correct as of 2017.

joining a friendly community

Becoming an owner means more than just finding the perfect escape for you. You’ll be joining a friendly community on the park, with all the little ones making life-long friends, with a range of family fun events to gather the community throughout the year, as well as spending time with friendly adults and enjoying the evening entertainment.


stress & guilt-free holidays

When owning your own holiday home you don’t have to feel guilty when wandering to the bar to watch the football game, or spending your day relaxing with a good book. You can truly relax and know that your family is as happy and content as you are, giving you that stress and guilt-free holiday you’ve been craving.
