A: We hold a 52-week Holiday License meaning that we do not need to close.
A: Yes of course. We offer a bespoke service, which means that lodges can be designed and then custom built by manufacturers to suit your specific requirements.
A: Yes, our show lodges are available to buy or you can purchase designs off plan. For delivery times we would need to check with manufacturers but usually the lead-time is around 12 weeks.
A: All our recommended manufacturers build to BS 3632 exacting standards. BS 3632 is a full residential specification so you will be able to use your lodge all the year around, but for holiday purposes and/or as second homes only - not as your primary residence.
A: Most Leisure homes are protected by a 12-month manufacturer's guarantee. Depending upon your manufacturer you will also receive a separate warranty for items such as appliances, exterior cladding, windows, doors, roof, facias and guttering. Decking and verandah manufacturers we recommend, offer between a 10 & 20 year guarantee. This depends on the product selected.

A: All parks have an annual ground rent and maintenance charge. At Queensland Country Park the charges are:
£2,800 + vat for a twin unit.

A: All lodges have electric and water meters, which will be read on a quarterly basis. The owner will be invoiced the equivalent rate that the park is charged by the Service Provider along with a quarterly £15 administration charge.
Gas is LPG bottled gas and can be obtained by delivery, locally.
A: Yes, children are most welcome.
Dogs are also welcome too as long as they do not constantly cause any disturbance by barking or howling. There are areas where dogs can be safely let off the lead on the ‘dog walk’ (located around the periphery of the park) although it is not permitted in front of any of the lodges on the grass and road areas of the park. This is to ensure that a mutual respect is upheld by all lodge owners whether dog owner’s or not.
Other pets maybe allowed but permission should be obtained from the park owners initially.
A: Yes we are. The British Holiday & Home Parks Association is the only organization established exclusively to serve and represent the interests of the British parks industry. Parks that belong to this association must adhere to a code of practice and ensure they use the proper agreements. At Queensland Country Park we are expected to demonstrate that we operate responsibly and fairly by agreeing to the association’s terms and conditions of membership.
A: Unfortunately we do not allow owners to sublet their holiday homes.
A: No, all of our lodges are for holiday use only and lodge owners must provide Queensland Country Park with a permanent residential address as proof.
