Lodges and Caravans to Hire and to Buy
on Caravan Parks in Scotland
Scotland is the ideal destination for caravan holidays, whether touring with your own caravan or staying in a caravan holiday home. Thistle Holiday Parks have lodges, cabins and caravan holiday homes for hire and for sale. Some caravan parks have leisure facilities, a restaurant and a bar. Thistle Parks are of a 4- or 5-star standard and are among the best in Scotland. If you want to try something new, then try glamping, small "huts", some of which are basic, whilst others are really luxurious! The lodges and holiday homes for hire are owned by the parks and kept in tip-top condition.
September and October: Planning a short break of a few days or longer? Check out our Availabilty page to see the parks which have space for you!
Buying a Holiday Home: Many of our caravan parks have holiday homes and lodges for sale and this could be a good investment for the future. If you are on holiday this autumn, talk with the park-owner to see what may be available for next year. For information on caravans and lodges for sale Willerby has a whole new rage of super holiday homes and lodges. If you want to browse before you buy, visit the Caravan and Motorhome Show in the NEC near Birmingham from 17-22 October. Many, many caravans and motorhomes, holiday homes and lodges to see and to choose from.
When to come: Autumn can be the best time of year to visit Scotland, when the roads are quieter, when you have time to linger and browse in the popular visitor attractions, and the trees start to change colour.
