When you’re choosing a location at which to site your static caravan it’s important to think about your surroundings in addition to the facilities and atmosphere – as visitors to one Kent caravan park have found out to their cost.

Recent bad weather has led to Bell Farm Lane in the Isle of Sheppey falling victim to a landslide, with sections of cliff eroding away and debris falling into the park.

As a result, the site has been forced to move several of its static caravans and to change its perimeter fencing. The local coastguard has warned holidaymakers to be aware if they are planning to visit the area as further coastal erosion could occur.

Of course, such problems at caravan sites are in the minority, as there are plenty of beautiful and safe parks where you can set up home in your static caravan. Thorough online research is the best way to find out whether there are environmental concerns in the area that you are looking to site your caravan.

Once you’ve chosen your site you can contact Coast for a static caravan insurance quotation by calling Freephone 0800 614 849. Online static caravan insurance quotations are also available.
