Holiday Park Lodges and Autumn Walks Lift your Spirits

Holiday park lodges are luxurious and impressive particularly at this time of year.  Many UK holiday lodge parks are situated in rural surroundings and the lodges blend in perfectly with the landscape.

In Autumn there is a fantastic array of colours just waiting to be revealed around the breathtaking landscapes of North Wales. Discover glistening blue lakes, an abundance of green flora and woodlands of golden leaves. From gentle woodland walks to bracing hikes over windswept moors, there are walks to fit all tastes. Here are our suggestions of some colourful rambles to give you inspiration this autumn around Sirior Bach Caravan Park. The walks we have listed are all dog-friendly routes.

Nant Mill Wood, Clywedog Valley Trail, Wrexham

This location provides a combination of grassland and woodland areas, with 2 easy to follow public footpaths crossing through around 98 acres of woodland that is open to the public.

Coed y Gopa, Abergele

Overlooking the town of Abergele, with stunning coastal views, the fabulous forest walks are ideal for dog walking where they can happily roam off the lead. Combining the Welsh words for ‘wood’ and ‘summit’ – these woods certainly lives up to their name.

Valle Crucis Abbey, Llangollen

An amazing location for an autumn stroll around the ruins of Valle Crucis Abbey, lying in the valley of Llangollen. Dogs are welcome on the ground level of the abbey.

Llangollen Canal Walkway

If you’re feeling energetic, then this walk also known as Llangollen Canal Walkway is around 6 miles total but the views are breathtaking.

Gwydyr Forest, Betws-y-Coed

Beautiful forest walks, in the ever popular Snowdonia National Park. Explore the wooded areas around the small Welsh village of Betws-y-Coed.

Llyn Elsi, Betws-y-Coed

Take the route from the village of Betws-y-Coed to the lake, a distance of around 4 miles. Coniferous woodland surrounds the lake, which is absolutely stunning in the autumn season.

In the wonderful outdoors in North Wales, you will come across well-marked walking routes for hiking, as well as shorter routes perfect for an afternoon ramble.

Holiday park lodges

Owners of holiday park lodges at Sirior Bach Caravan Park often spend a week, or long weekend here in Autumn. Holiday lodge parks make ideal getaways during this season when the whole of North Wales is amazingly gorgeous. But don’t just take our word for it, get outdoors and experience it for yourself!

We wait all winter for summer to arrive and as soon as it does, we moan about it being too hot. But to be fair, it is hot in the moment. With the temperature rising we’re all looking for ways to keep cool while in our static caravan holiday. Sometimes it’s tough to stay hydrated while out doing fun things with the family but we’ve compiled a few tips that might help keep everyone in the family safe and feeling well while working on your tan.

The warm weather is great but it’s important to know how to stay cool. Adults and children need different things when it’s hot outside but don’t forget the family pet too! Younger children need about a litre of fluids per day, older children need about 1.5 litres and adults need 2 to 2.5. If you’re very active, each family member may need more so pay attention to how you feel and drink even when you’re not thirsty – by the time you feel the need to drink, you’re already on your way to being dehydrated.

Heat stroke—or worse, hyperthermia—are very real things. When your body produces way too much heat, or absorbs way too much heat, it can cause some serious damage. No one wants to spend their holiday in the emergency department getting fluids!

Here are our tips on how you can keep your family and your caravan cool – even when it’s heating up outdoors.


Water, Water, Water

The main thing is to drink water! Think you’ve had enough water? Drink more! Drink it cold – add ice! Staying hydrated it the number one way to combat overheating. Being active outside in the heat makes you sweat to cool down but your body releasing that water also needs replacing – and fast!

Adults need about 2 -2.5 litres of water on hot days. Children need less, of course, but they should be reminded to drink fluids as they’re usually too busy to notice they might need to drink more. Small children (4-8) should have about 1 litre a day while older kids (8-13) should aim for 1.5.

You can get additional water into kids – and adults -by adding some fresh fruit, like cucumber or melons, for added flavour. Milk and other un-sweetened beverages are helpful to meet your goal as well. Remember! Sugar and caffeine have dehydrating effects so should only be used sparingly.

Contrary to popular advice, coffee and soda are fine to drink. The amount of caffeine in them is low enough relative to the amount of water that they’ll still hydrate you if you’re dehydrated. Beer is fine too, so long as it’s a session beer (about 3 to 4 percent alcohol by volume) and not one with a high ABV. Just pace yourself and don’t drink too many.


Avoid the Sun

When possible, avoid the direct sun during the time when it’s mostly hot, likely between the hours of 11am and 2pm. This is when sunburn is most likely to happen and the heat ‘feels’ hottest. Limiting your exposure by going into seaside shops or back to your caravan for lunch can give you a break from the heat and get your ready for the next trip outdoors.


Dress for the Weather

Wear loose, breathable clothing such as cotton or linen in lighter colours that will reflect light instead of absorbing it. Shorts and t-shirts or vest tops are a given but what else is important to wear for a day out in the sun?

Pop on a cap when you’re out battling the rays – it will provide some shade and cool you down.

Your eyes need protection from the sun too, so sunglasses are a must-have for any extended periods spent outdoors.

If you have long hair, you have probably noticed how much hotter it can make you feel when it’s draped around your neck and shoulders. Get that tied back or pulled up, your cooler neck will thank you.

Remember your feet – sandals or flip flips that will let them breathe; having your feet in trainers will only make you hotter!


Some other small tips to beat the heat this summer that we found helpful:

  • Let kids pick out a cool water bottle with their favourite design so they’re more inclined to drink
  • Fill a spray bottle with water and keep it in the refrigerator for a refreshing spritz to your face after being outdoors
  • Exercise early in the morning when the temperatures are lower
  • If you’re wearing a cap, wet it with cold water and put it back on to dampen your hair, making you feel automatically cooler
  • As appealing as it may be, try to avoid caffeine and alcohol as your go-to drinks as these promote dehydration
  • Use wet face cloths to wipe down your face or body, giving you instant (though temporary) relief from the heat

During the summer it’s not unusual to see populations of insects in and around static caravans.  When the weather is hot we tend to keep windows and doors open to let the air circulate but of course, these are ideal entry points for insects, flying bugs and arachnids.

There are any number of chemical sprays that will kill flies and other bugs but actually there are ways that you can reduce their numbers dramatically without breathing in these chemicals and here are some of the best deterrents:

Mosquito mesh for static caravans
Widely available online or from local and national suppliers, fly or insect screens can be purchased to fit yourself or have a professional install.  The mesh can also be purchased in rolls so that you can cut it to size and attach it with tape or Wonder Web to your windows.  If you choose to use the temporary mesh you should also invest in some beaded curtains to hang at doors and French windows because they make it difficult for flying insects to penetrate.

Peppermint Oil
This oil is a fantastic natural repellent for insects, ants, bed bugs, roaches, fleas, moths, spiders and moths. Peppermint oil can be bought online, in chemists or aromatherapy shops.  Pure, concentrated oil can be mixed with water in a spray bottle and used all over your caravan to rid the van of this wide variety of pests. Around 10 drops to a half litre container will work.

Having mixed your oil and water you can spray in all the places that bugs tend to hide, on the window frames and around the doors.  You can also spray outside around your static caravan. If you have an ant problem you can really test this out by spraying the ants with the mixture and they will disappear, not returning for up to a month even if it rains in between.

Spiders detest peppermint oil so if you suffer from arachnophobia you should always keep a bottle handy. As an arachnophobe, I acknowledge that I have an irrational fear and that it is not the spider’s fault I am frightened of it! Hence, I don’t like the idea of killing them but take the view that they have a million places to live other than in holiday static caravans, and more particularly in mine! Peppermint oil doesn’t kill them but it does keep them away. Be careful not to saturate areas spray as this could cause mould – and that’s another problems altogether.

Cinnamon Bark or Powder
Sprinkling cinnamon powder from the grocer or (or cinnamon bark) where ants are thriving throws off their pheromones and makes them confused and get lost. Once they lose their way, they won’t infest this location any longer.

Natural air freshener
An additional bonus is that caravans smell fresh all the time when you spray the interior with the oil.  There are other oils that work such as lavender, cedarwood, citronella, spearmint, tea tree and citrus but having tried them all I have found that peppermint is the most effective.

If you have another suggestion about how to keep insects out of static caravans, we’d love to hear from you.


Everyone that spends time at their static caravan or holiday home at Sirior Bach Holiday Park in Abergele, is aware that the surrounding areas are so stunningly beautiful and awe-inspiring, that it’s sometimes difficult to decide how to spend your spare time. Do you choose to go mountain climbing, beach combing, rock pool dipping, cycling or walking? These are all hobbies that improve your basic well-being, health factors and enjoyment while spending time with your loved ones and friends.

However, there comes a time when you’re maybe feeling like you might want a new hobby – something to refresh yourself when the weather changes or just because you need a new, inspiring, fun hobby that you can add to your “to-do list”.  Here are a few of our suggestions:


This hobby is a current twist on the traditional treasure hunt. The concept is that players try to locate a hidden container known as a “cache” or “geocache”, by tracking GPS coordinates to a specific location. (You can use any GPS tracking device.) However, should you be successful and locate the booty, the rules state that you must replace your treasure with another of equal value and hide this for other players to find. Warning: this wildly popular trend is addictive!


The exercise of yoga serves many purposes, from building flexibility and improving strength, to spiritual healing. There is so much to learn about the different types of yoga and many routines. Try Hatha for flexibility and relaxation or Vinyasa, which is the most common form of yoga. Vinyasa moves from one pose directly to the next and builds heat in the body through those poses. Another form of yoga is Ashtanga which offers a challenging form of the exercise where the moves stay the same for each class, but with a salutation to the sun interspersed. If you love the heat then check out a Bikram yoga class, or “hot yoga” where the heat is on.

Become a Rainfall Reader

This new hobby can be quite inexpensive and suits all ages. It also serves the purpose of a family project, to teach your children about how the weather has such an impact on our lives. The project involves you measuring precipitation and levels whenever rain, hail or snow falls in our garden or caravan plot. Tools needed are a plastic rainfall measuring tube, a ruler and if you wish to record the results online, a computer with internet connection. For more information on how to become a rainfall reader, check out this page.

Try your hand at Ten-Pin Bowling

Bowling is a brilliant activity for all ages. Not only does it involve competitive skills, it’s fun for all the family. Hopefully, you’ll get a strike, knocking down all ten pins on your first try of the frame.  Not only does it help to give you a workout and burn calories, your joints, hips, knees and wrists will all be in better shape with all the flexing. There are several locations in North Wales where you can find a bowling lane:

  • Tenpin Wrexham, Unit B14 Eagles Meadow, Wrexham LL13 8DG T: 0871 222 3675
  • AstroBowl, Victoria Road West, Ffrith Beach, Prestatyn LL19 7AR T: 01745 850079
  • Mr. B’s Amusements, 29-33 West Parade, Rhyl LL18 1HF T: 01745 345123

Try an Adult Colouring Book

This is a hobby often reserved for a rainy day when you don’t want to venture far from your static caravan. Get artistic with an adult colouring book, some colourful pens or pencils and creative talent. Many books are laced with intricate pages of outlines for you to spend hours detailing.


There are, of course, many other new hobby alternatives you can attempt and try out, such as white-water rafting, yachting, sailing,  and canoeing. There is dragon boat racing, wildlife conservation, remote control cars, painting and photography. Spend some time learning a new language! The choices are endless.

Maybe one of the special soothing ritual treatments during which there is cleaning, exfoliating, warming, oiling and massaging various body parts like hands, feet, face or scalp.

Whether you are looking to play your first round or you’re on your way to becoming a PGA pro, North Wales has a course made just for you. With some 60-plus courses in the area there are excitement filled clubs for every skill level. Maybe you’ve played all over the world and are looking to expand your expertise or play a particularly unique or challenging course. Some others might be just starting off and want to expand their knowledge of ranges and etiquette.

Lets first discuss what possibly makes a really great course to drive a ball on. While thoughts differ from person to person, some things remain fairly constant like the condition of the turf you’ll be playing on or how much you’re prepared to spend on a round. Some other factors include:

  • Ratings: Ratings from other golfers, amateur and intermediate alike. This could include ratings from the golf club’s website and other numerous online review sites. Though individual reviews can be influenced by any number of factors, it’s the people who have stood where you are who are most often a great way to tell if you want to play there.
  • Length of the course: Do you want to play 9 holes or 18? Depending on skill level and time, you’ll want to decide before you book a tee time on how many you’d like to play. The decision is yours on how many holes to play but also factor in how each course plays when deciding as some courses have a difficult section (back 9, for instance). You might also factor in whether the club you are looking to play allows carts and if you are able to walk 18 holes with your gear.
  • Does the golf club allow visiting memberships? Some courses require players to buy an annual membership or play with another member of the course.
  • History: Did your favorite golfer play here or maybe you’re a fan of a different course created by the same architect – hit the links some place new today. Are you into the history of the course itself or the surrounding area? Some of the courses here in North Wales pre date the 1900’s and are amazing displays of history and the way the game has evolved over time.
  • Unique or challenging: Golf is a thinking game so playing holes that make you do just that is what it’s all about, right? Playing different places and on various terrain is paramount to challenging yourself to learning to skills. Hole changes can also make a repeated trip back to the same place a new experience.

Regardless of your skill level or what you’re looking for in a course, you’re sure to find everything you want in a club in North Wales. Modern or medieval, complex or simple, relaxed or reserved – we’ve found a place for you to golf during your next caravan holiday right here.

Aberdovey Golf Club in Snowdonia National Park is an idyllic course from the pre-1900’s. While the course has changed over time there is no doubt it remains one of the areas finest courses. Let Bernard Darwin tee through.

Royal St. David’s Golf Club is another awarding winning club in the scenic Snowdonia National Park. Overseen by Harlech Castle on one side and mountainous ranges on the other, the view alone makes this range worth the trip. This tough par-69 course will challenge even the most experienced long-range drivers. Play only the front 9 for an easier time – don’t say you haven’t been warned. The back 9 has one of the most difficult holes in the entire UK.

North Wales Golf Club is the perfect place for all skill levels of player to come drive some balls or play together as a group. This course has lower green fees than average and accommodates players from beginner through intermediate. Play the entire 18 for the full experience as the back 9 have amazing views and more challenging holes.

Conwy Golf Club is a tough course played along a rugged coastline surrounded by mountainous cliffs, an inactive volcano and the estuary filled with ships. This entire course is a test of ones abilities but the last 6 holes are a terror so save your energy for the end.

Nefyn & District Golf Club is a 27 hole championship golf club that features 3 unique loops of 9 holes each. “The Old” (holes 10-18) attract the most visitors, as it’s holes wind along a narrow peninsula and merge into a tiny space with two mind boggling holes. Some people find these holes frustratingly complex – others find it endearing, demanding or energizing. If shooting a blind drive over a cliff sounds like something you are going to be into then play “The Old”, which usually accompanies “The “Front”. “The Front” (holes 1-9) are the one with stunning views that visitors rave about in reviews. The Irish Sea in every shot is a sight to behold before coming back inland for the remaining stretch. “The New” (holes 19-27) continues to offer the sights of the “sea from every sea” that only Nefyn can boast about while following these long sweeping holes with strategically placed bunkers and gently placing you back at hole 27.

With so many holiday homes for sale in North Wales, sometimes potential buyers are confused as to the difference between Holiday Lodges and Static Caravans.

The main difference relates to the amount of time you can use the holiday home.  Most holiday lodges can be used for 12 months of the year whereas static caravans are normally limited to 11 months or less.

Is the construction of holiday lodges better than static caravans?

Certainly, if you are buying an older model static caravan, the construction of a holiday lodge will be of a much higher specification. However, brand new static caravans are infinitely superior to their ancient counterparts. There isn’t a great deal of difference in terms of the strength of construction but size, fixtures and fittings in holiday lodges are likely to be bigger and better.  You can also expect the plot on which a holiday lodge is situated to be larger.

12 Month License Holiday Lodges

Holiday lodges usually have a licence for 12-month use.  This does not mean that you can live in the holiday home all year round. It means that you can have access to the lodge for 12 months of the year. The advantage is that you can take your holidays or short breaks anytime you want to without restriction.

When you consider purchasing a holiday lodge for use all year round, make sure the holiday park you intend to site it on has a 12-month license.

At Sirior Bach Caravan Park we have luxury holiday lodges for sale with licenses for use all through the year. See our post The Benefits of 12-Month Static Caravan Sites in North Wales.

Easier and cheaper holidays during school breaks

Finance packages are available subject to status too; so it’s easy to start with a modest model and work your way up to luxury standard as your finances improve. Owning your own holiday home in Britain means that you won’t have to book expensive flights during peak periods when your children take their Easter, summer or winter breaks from school.

Caravans today are more like luxury apartments or cabins with flat screen televisions, fully fitted and equipped kitchens, bathrooms always with showers but often with baths too. Indeed some of the bathrooms have Jacuzzi baths; bedrooms have fitted wardrobes in many models and lounges are stunning, sometimes with feature fireplaces.

Outside space

You can walk out of patio doors onto decking around the caravan and have your own neat little garden with more than enough space for a barbecue and a small garden shed.  Modern caravans are nothing like those you might imagine from your grandparents’ era!

Luxury Holiday Lodges

If your budget allows you might want to consider one of the luxury holiday lodges on offer.  They are spacious, beautifully designed and without a doubt a pleasure in which to spend holidays, long weekend breaks or even extended periods of time during retirement. See what’s available right now:

Holidays are getting more and more predictable. The classic weekend break of heading to Spain, Portugal or France and just relaxing there, drinking alcohol and eating local food might be entertaining the first couple of times, but sooner or later, you’ll want something more personalized, convenient and ultimately, down to earth.

Sirior Bach Caravan Park is one of the most beautiful and luxurious locations for luxury lodges in North Wales. With over 120 caravan bases across 19 acres, there’s something for everyone and it’s situated in a prime location that is close to generous gardens, excellent local attractions and breath-taking views.

You can enjoy the peaceful countryside with its fantastic hiking routes, leisurely walks and wonderful coast. Alternatively, you could head out of Sirior Bach Caravan Park and go to the local attractions in North Wales. From the Sun centre in Ryhl to the Anglesey Sea Zoo, there’s plenty to do locally and it’s extremely easy to get to the closest local attractions. From castles to gardens and theme parks, there’s something for everyone.

Why own a luxury lodge in North Wales?

But why should you invest in a luxury lodge in the first place, and what sets it apart to B&Bs and hotels in North Wales? It might seem expensive on the surface, but take a look at the advantages you get and it’ll start to make sense. In fact, after reading these benefits of owning a luxury lodge in North Wales, you’ll wonder why you haven’t invested in one yet!

North Wales is a Convenient holiday location

Unlike having to book a hotel room for a set period or go to a different location each time for your holiday, having a luxury lodge means you have a static location to go every time you take a holiday. It also means you don’t need to plan ahead months in advance and you can simply drive to North Wales, show up and relax in your private luxury lodge.

North Wales is easily accessible with excellent transport links from anywhere in the UK.  You don’t have the expense of flights. There’s no hassle of finding the right type of accommodation for all the family when you own a luxury holiday lodge.  If you want to get away for a “luxury lodge weekend” or short “luxury lodge holiday”, it’s easy when you have your own place.

On balance, costs add up with holidays when you consider all the things you have to pay for. Many of these additional costs don’t apply when you own a holiday lodge.

Unrivalled comfort

Forget about poorly-maintained hotel rooms or B&Bs with rubbish service. The luxury lodges in North Wales are usually extremely luxurious, have plenty of comforts and local facilities, and they’re designed to be modern and spacious. Forget those dinky caravans you knew when you were young–these quite literally small homes with en-suite bathrooms, multiple bedrooms and full kitchen ranges.

Owning your own lodge eliminates all of these problems. Even if you buy a used model it’s often possible to modify it to suit your specific requirements. If you order a new model it can be customised to your design and specification or you might find a show home that exactly matches what you want.

You get to choose the fixtures and fittings, fabrics and interior design. You can even have a Jacuzzi bath fitted if you like and plan how much wardrobe and storage space you need. You can even have a dressing room added to the design.

Questions to ask before investing in a luxury lodge in North Wales

However, you should also double-check if you meet the right criteria for owning a luxury lodge. While there are many benefits and advantages, it’s never a bad idea to do a little bit of research and see if it would fit your needs. Here are a couple of the most common questions to ask yourself:

What kind of facilities will I need?

There are many different caravan parks and they all carry different amenities. Some have loads of local stores and shops nearby while others are fairly barren. It’s always a good idea to check what type of amenities and facilities you need before you invest in a luxury lodge at a caravan park.

When will I be using my luxury lodge?

If you’re not planning on using your luxury lodge for a long period of time then you always have the option of renting it out to other holidaymakers. In addition, you might benefit from a short-term lease instead of a long-term one. This will help you save more money but still offer you the unrivalled freedom and comfort of having a luxury lodge all to yourself.

What am I looking for in a luxury lodge?

There are many different types of luxury lodges available. Some offer ample parking space for guests, some are compact but luxurious, and others are ultramodern and come with all the latest gizmos and gadgets that you can think of.

How can I finance my luxury lodge?

If you’re going all-in and investing in your own luxury lodge, then it might be worth taking a look at what financing options are available to you. This will give you plenty of financial freedom when making an expensive purchase like a luxury lodge.

Is there internet access available?

If you rely on internet access a lot then you may want to check if your luxury lodge has access to the internet or a Wi-Fi connection to help you stay connected with the rest of the world. Having internet access also allows you to continue working if you’re able to work remotely, and it’s fantastic for sharing pictures and videos on social media.

If you’ve successfully answered these questions then what are you waiting for? Sirior Bach Caravan Park has plenty of luxury lodges for sale. We also offer lower-end models for people who are just getting started with buying a holiday lodge.

Buying a Luxury Lodge in North Wales

Buying Luxury Lodges in North Wales is so much easier once you have been to a few Holiday Parks in the area. Many people debate whether to buy or continue hiring holiday homes for several years before making a decision.  That’s a good thing because purchasing a luxury holiday lodge is not an insignificant investment because we have a wide range whether you choose a used or new holiday lodge. The level of luxury, size of lodge and plot and even the position of a lodge on site will play a part in the cost.

With finance packages available, you can spread the cost with monthly instalments, subject to status.

But the cost is not the only consideration when taking a holiday and often the least important for owners. Here are some of the benefits of buying a luxury lodge as opposed to just taking the odd week’s holiday or annual vacation.

Community Spirit

With strict school guidelines in place as to when children can go on holiday, many lodge owners with kids will be on holiday at the same time as you.  Your children will meet new friends and make lasting ones with your neighbours, and so will you.

Holiday Parks, where you will find luxury lodges in North Wales, resemble small villages. Some are by the coast and others, like Sirior Bach, in sensational rural locations.  Most things you need can be found on site or within a short distance from the park.

You can invite friends around for a barbecue or for dinner, just as you would do at home.  And you don’t have to worry about the kids being safe or where they are when they are on site.

Location is not an issue

Booking a holiday can be fraught with difficulties. The most popular places tend to be fully booked in peak season. Then you are left with taking potluck on a place you’ve never been before.

When you own your own lodge, you know that you are going to a fantastic place because you chose to buy there. You know that everything is going to be perfect.

This summer thousands of holidaymakers will spend a well-earned break in UK holiday resorts, many of them staying in static caravans. We would like to remind static caravan owners of their obligations with regard to TV licences so that you don’t find yourselves on the receiving end of a nasty fine.

To some static caravan owners, the issue of TV licensing is a bit of a grey area so hopefully, this blog post will clear up any doubts you may have.

Some Static Caravan owners may need a separate TV Licence

As the law stands currently, some caravan owners may need a separate licence for their holiday homes and some won’t. It depends on whether a television is being used in your main residence at the same time as you are on holiday in your static caravan. This applies to your home television being watched or used for recording programmes whilst you are away.

In the UK there is a legal requirement to have a valid TV licence for anyone watching or recording TV programmes on any device or channel in a holiday home whether it is an apartment, house, static caravan or indeed any structure that is permanent. You can check if you need a separate TV licence by clicking here on TV Licensing

Spread the cost of a TV Licence

The same rules do not apply to touring caravans provided you have a valid licence for your main residence since touring caravans are not permanent structures. However, if you need to buy a TV licence you can do it very quickly by purchasing online. You can spread the cost of £159 per annum by paying quarterly, monthly or even weekly payments if you want to.

If you are not sure whether you need a separate licence for your static caravan the TV Licensing people will be very happy to give you free advice if you call them on 0300 790 6042.

Methods of payment

It is now extremely easy to purchase TV Licences because there are so many ways in which you can do it as follows:

  • You can buy a licence online with a credit or debit card
  • Set up a direct debit online to pay annually, quarterly, monthly or weekly
  • Paypoint – with over 23,000 outlets throughout the UK you can pay over the counter with a debit or credit card or even with cash if you wish
  • If you would prefer to pay over the telephone, you can call TV Licensing and pay with a variety of debit cards including Connect, Maestro and Delta. The number to call is 0300 790 6042
  • You can mail a cheque or postal order to TV Licensing, Darlington, DL98 1TL

At Sirior Bach our static caravan owners are not permitted to rent their caravans out but if you are reading this and have a caravan to let on any caravan site in the UK you are much more likely to require a separate TV Licence for your holiday home.
