1. When does QCP open and close?
We hold a 52-week Holiday License. This means that we don’t need to close.
2. Do you have any holiday lodges available for purchase right now?

3. What is the build specification on QCP holiday lodges?
All our recommended manufacturers build to BS 3632 exacting standards – which are full residential specifications. This means that you’ll be able to use your lodge all year around for holiday purposes and/or as second homes – but not as your primary residence.
4. Will your lodge come with any warranties? If yes, what are they?
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 typically offer between a 10 to 20 year guarantee.
5. Will you own the plot of land where your lodge is sited?
No. The plot where the lodge is sited will be placed under a licence.
6. Are there any other costs you should be aware of?
Your lodge will come with electric and water metres – which will be read on a quarterly basis. We will invoice you the same rate that the service providers charge QCP.
With regards to gas – you can get your LPG bottled gas delivered from local sellers.
7. Why should you care that QCP is a member of the British Holiday & Home Parks Association?
The British Holiday & Home Parks Association is the only organisation 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.
8. Are children allowed?
Yes, children are most welcome.
9. Are pets allowed?
Well-behaved dogs are more than welcome.
At QCP, we have areas where dogs can be safely let off the lead. But they aren’t 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 a dog owner or not.
Other pets may be allowed but you should always ask us first for permission.
10. Is Broadband available?
11. Can you sublet your lodge?
No, you cannot sublet your holiday homes.
12. Can you live in your lodge?
