Putting Your Personal Stamp on Your Holiday Home,

When you buy a static caravan at Holiday Resort Unity and Brean Leisure Park, it can still feel like a home away from home, especially if you make small changes to give it a touch of your personal sense of style. Here are our top tips if you are buying to use as your holiday as well as if you are planning to let as a holiday accommodation.

Bring Some Things From Home

Home From Home Brean Holiday Resort Unity


If you enjoy home comforts, then why not bring in some of the furnishings or accessories that you already have? Many of us have more than we need at home!

Adding these simple and familiar touches not only makes you feel relaxed but also cuts down on the amount that you have to spend as well as provides you with an opportunity to de-clutter. Simple items like a favourite throw, some cosy cushions, or your preferred kitchen gadgets can make your holiday home feel instantly more welcoming and personal.

The Choice Is Yours

If you are planning on using your holiday home exclusively for your family and friends, and not going to be letting it out externally, then you are free to furnish your holiday home with whatever you wish! Similarly, if you are going to manage the letting yourself, it is entirely up to you what you wish to provide and to what standard you wish to furnish your holiday home.

However, if you are going to use Newman's to manage the lettings, we do advise that you check with them before buying items, as they will have a checklist of what needs to be in the caravan, which you will need to comply with. Alternatively, they can purchase the items for you, but please discuss with them to make sure you don't go to any unnecessary expense.

We also recommend that you do an inventory if you are letting out your holiday home, so you can keep track of what you have in case anything needs to be replaced. This is particularly important to ensure that your guests have everything they need for a comfortable stay, and you are aware of any wear and tear.

Pictures & Mirrors

You should not underestimate the power of the mirror, especially in a smaller space. Placed on a wall opposite a window, a mirror will reflect the light and create the illusion of more space, perfect for caravans and holiday homes.

Similarly, pictures and wall art can certainly make space feel more homely, but remember walls are not as solid as they are at home, so do make sure they are securely fixed, especially if hanging over seating or beds. Choosing art that reflects your personality or favourite places can bring a touch of home to your holiday retreat.

Don’t Forget the Outside

It isn’t just the indoor space of your caravan that can benefit from a touch of style. Outdoors can also benefit from a personal touch. Adding some garden plants, whether in pots or a small garden bed, can bring a splash of colour and a sense of tranquillity.

Sheds can be added to your outdoor space as some additional room for storage. Ideal for hiding away games, buckets, body boards, and other holiday-friendly things! You could also install fencing around the outdoor space of your holiday home. This allows you to segment off your own particular space and you can pick from a variety of different options, which perfectly complements the style of your caravan.

However, if looking at sheds or fencing, please make sure you check with us before going ahead, as we do have some requirements that need to be adhered to. This is just to make sure that all health and safety requirements are met.

Essential Equipment

When purchasing your holiday home, the included equipment will vary based on the model's specifications. At a minimum, you can expect essential furnishings like beds and seating, along with a cooker and a fridge.

It's important to take note of what is included at the time of purchase, as these details can be easily forgotten once you get home.

Here's a basic checklist of some of the essentials that you might need to consider buying:

- Crockery & Cutlery
- Toaster & Kettle
- Microwave
- TV
- Pillows & Duvets
- Pots, Pans & Cooking Utensils
- Mop, Bucket, Vacuum & Cleaning Essentials
- Gardening tools

Of course, if you are keeping your holiday home for your use only, or just letting to people you know, it may be worth keeping supplies of bedding, towels, books, and games, and items such as a travel cot and highchair if you have young children, to save you having to pack them each time. We have launderettes on-site, and you are welcome to put a washing line up in your garden, so no need to take the laundry home!

Many newer high-end models will come with a washing machine, but if you have a model that doesn't, and if you have space inside your caravan, you are welcome to have one plumbed in. However, please note we do not permit white goods outside of the caravan, even if in sheds.

Again, if you are going to be letting through Newman's, we do advise you to check with them first before spending any money on equipment and accessories for your static caravan.

Once you have bought your amazing new holiday home from HRU Holiday Home Sales, make sure that you take the time to decorate and design it to suit your taste. Simple touches like a welcoming doormat, soft lighting, and fresh flowers can make a big difference. Creating a comfortable outdoor seating area can also enhance your enjoyment of the space.

By adding these personal touches and essential items, your holiday home will soon be perfect for you and your guests.
